    Parental permission is required to have your child watch a M rated movie in English so as long as parents are given the same option with this then I have no issue.

Breastfeeding ed would be about how to care for a baby and honestly, nobody would give a crap about it. The boys would be perving on any boob that was shown and the girls would hardly absorb any of it. Seriously, how many times in sex ed did we have to fill in the penis diagram with all the names of the bits and pieces...does anyone even remember where all those things are anymore lol???
    Maybe it could be covered in child studies then? fits more with the curriculum covered then?

    We didn't get name the pen!s parts we got 'mummy and daddy machine' sheets was such a joke I was seriously like uhh wtf we aren't in primary school anymore anything else would've been more helpful

    I clearly remember being amused by how the front internal view of the female reproductive system looked startlingly similar to a ram's head. And how the word "vas deferens" always cracked me up.

    Heh. Vas deferens.

    As for breast feeding education in schools? There are a lot of things that would be beneficial if they were taught in schools, but the reality is that they are working under finite time constraints and resources. If there is enough time and money to teach them all, then go nuts.

    If there isn't, though, then something has to give. I certainly wouldn't support breast feeding education if it came at the expense of the schools' core functions.

    Schools are an ineffective and often dangerous way of teaching children about social issues. Some things are better learned elsewhere.

    We had basic health then we had sex Ed note was sent home to let them know and parents could opt out if they preferred a few did from memory but not many.. My parents had already taught me so I thought the class was a joke..

    If they covered it in Childcare class then thats fine, because my DD will have to step over my dead body before she joins a bloody childcare class anyway hahaha.

    Lol wow ok, why such strong views? I'd be happy as long as my kids passed their electives though admittedly id be bitterly disappointed if they didn't fail religious studies

    Vas deferens is the only thing I remember...and glans. Wtf is a glans? LOL

    Yeah I would much prefer to be able to teach my own kids about this in an unbiased way. I don't want them coming away from it thinking they are stupid, and going to die of cancer or be obese because they were formula fed .

    I think there is a lot more I would be wanting my kids to use their school time for. Breastfeeding is unimportant to me, I'd prefer to opt out of the class and have them spend it doing extra study in the library or something.

    Being an atheist who is sending my kids to a Catholic school I would crack up immensely if they failed Religion hahaha.

    I think childcare class is a waste of time. I'm not paying thousands of dollars a year for their education for them to spend time learning how to change nappies. Its not a real subject, its a Mickey Mouse subject like Home Economics and Phys Ed haha.
