Parents attend course on sex
( 2003-09-24 14:14) (China Daily)

Thousands of parents attended a training course on sexual education on Sunday, reports Beijing Morning Post.

"Last year, a 10-year-old girl had an abortion," Chen Yijun, director of the China Youth Sexual Education Association, told the course attendees. Chen repeatedly stressed that parents rather than schools should be the primary source of information about sex for their children.

Several more cases of teenage pregnancy were cited during the course, including that of a 17-year-old girl who gave birth to a baby and then threw the child out of a window to its death. She is now serving a three-year prison sentence.

The sex education courses students receive at school are far from enough. If parents fail to guide their children, more problems will arise, Chen said.
