The wave of family health and sexual reproduction education is spreading to Africa and, indeed, Lagos as parents are how advised to start educating children of any age how they are born.

In America, the Planned Parenthood champions sexuality education as a right, and school kids now learn the facts of life, complete with information on male and female anatomies—which the organization calls science-based.

But in Lagos, the state’s first lady believes this learning should start as early as possible—at home.

“Parents, it is not early to start educating your children on what they need to know about sex,” Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu said.

Represented by Mojisola Fashola, from the human resources department of the office of the deputy governor, the first lady was speaking at a workshop commemorating the   Safeguarding and Child Protection day in Lagos on Sept. 22.

She said experts have established that a lot of parents shy away from discussing the topic and at the end of the day, the children go out to learn the wrong things.

“We therefore must keep in touch with the world by properly educating our children on everything that matters,” she said.

No fewer than 300 primary and secondary school children from public and private schools drawn from all the six education districts in Lagos attended the workshop.
