What is the Right Age to Talk to Children About Sex?

Sexual abuse in society is a result of inappropriate sex education. Parents have to educate their children regarding sexuality to avoid misinformation. Society Magazine’s DOREEN UMUTESI talks to city dwellers about their take on the appropriate age to start talking to kids about sex.  “There is no standard time at which parents should talk to their children about sex however; it depends on the child’s understanding capacity. When parents give wrong answers about different issues in life, the trust their children have in them is compromised.” Dr. Agnès Binagwaho, Permanent Secretary Ministry of Health.
