With series like Elite, Baby, Rain, Big Mouth and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Netflix has enticed teens into watching shows centered on teen prostitution rings, pornography, hookups, and more.
On January 11, Netflix's new series Sex Education will release with teens in mind. The show centers on the life of Otis Milburn and his friends as they start a peer led sex clinic in their high school to educate their classmates and answer questions about sex. While Otis himself has never engaged in sexual activity, his mother is a sex therapist. Sex Education addresses masturbation, gender identity, sexual orientation and more.
- Treat sex education as a process. Educating children about sexual integrity is not a one-time lesson but an ongoing process.
- Be honest. Many young people are looking for honest answers about what to do on dates, how to interact with the opposite sex and how premarital sex can affect their future.
- Be a loving guide, not "just a friend." Parents need to be a mature voice of wisdom in their children's lives.
In addition to regular conversations and discussions, setting parental controls on Netflix can help filter negative content from your family's streaming options.
