    No. I believe people should learn the horrors of the world from a young age.

    What is acting like an adult exactly? What is too soon? What is learning about sex, and learning in which manner (some Europeans teach their kids about sex from age 3, and have the lowest European teen pregnancy rate too)? What shouldn't children know, why not and is it more harmful to withhold this information?

    Just too many questions behind your questions to give a serious and above superficial reply I'm afraid.

    South Asian parents enlighten their children on matters of sex when they turn 23.
















    And teenage pregnancies don't exist there.

    There's a difference between doing what adults do, and acting like an adult.
    I could drink some alcohol...fair enough, adults do that...but then getting completely wasted is childish.
    SO I guess I'm saying that people try to grow up too fast, but are consequently making themselves look like bigger kids.

    Yeah, it's true. There was a little girl walking down the road the other day dressed up like a 17 year old, caked in makeup, high heels etc. It's awful!

    I agree that it depends on what you class as being 'grown up'. Children are turning into a certain type of adult much too quickly, but that's the chavvy adult, who doesn't really act in an adult way at all.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with teaching kids about sex. But there is something wrong when you have 12 year old girls trying to look sexy, wearing inappropriate clothes etc.

    Lol, well maybe not 23 but certainly later than in the west. :p:

    It just goes to show that there are so many other variables to consider in the culture of societies where teenage pregnancies are a problem, besides just good 'education' or a lack of it.

    relative to when? to when girls where getting married and having kids as soon as they were biologically able

    relative to when boys were working down the mines from 9 or 10.

    dispite all this argument of the internet and mobile phones making kids grow up to fast, they still have a longer "childhood" than any other time in history.

    now ask if kids are under educated in all matters of being an adult, from money and earniung a living, to sex and alcohol, i would say yes
