Mother's fury at school teaching her daughter, 8, about masturbation puberty sex education lesson

The video, titled 'The best signs boys are going through puberty', showed a cartoon of a boy waking up in bed after having a wet dream

A furious mother has denounced an elementary school for teaching her eight-year-old daughter about masturbation and erotic dreams.

She is disgusted by teachers for showing 4th graders a video on the risky subject.

In the three-minute clip, footage of a rocket and an erupting volcano is used to illustrate an erect penis and ejaculation.

The mum said her daughter was so upset by the graphic depiction of the boys having wet dreams that she begged her not to see the video again.

She said: “I’m very angry about this because I don’t want my eight year old daughter to learn about masturbation and wet dreams. It’s way too young. My daughter said to me ‘Mom, why do boys have erotic dreams?’ She was really upset and said she didn’t want to know more.

“I was stunned and didn’t know what to say to him at first. It’s disgusting that this is taught in 4th grade.

The mum watched the ‘Best Signs Boys Are Going Through Puberty’ video – produced by Amazed and was shocked at the adult content and language.

She said: “Words used in the video include sexual desires, masturbation and erection.

“I wasn’t sure if I was old fashioned and spoke to other parents who felt exactly the same way.

‘More dads. They were the angst of them all.

The mother, who does not want to be named, contacted the headmaster of Coleshill Primary School, Birmingham, where her child is a pupil.

The school agreed not to show the video but will continue to teach 4th graders about puberty.

The mum added: ‘The chef reluctantly accepted the video was inappropriate but said I couldn’t refuse my daughter to attend the lesson after the government made it compulsory in September 2021. It’s disgusting and sexualizing our children.

“If a child went to school and told teachers that his father or stepfather said he was aroused, had sexual desires and had erotic dreams, the alarm bells would ring and social services would be immediately involved.

“But the government thinks it’s okay for teachers to teach it.

‘They are too young. Let them be children, because once they know that, they will begin to experiment.

She claims she was not informed of the school’s intention to teach the subject, which the principal denies.

She added, “I don’t think they need to know about masturbation.

“School has no right to teach this to our children at such a young age because they have no idea how it will affect them.

“I feel like I let my daughter down and neglected her because I didn’t know she was learning this. She told me that she felt very uncomfortable when we talked about it.

“The exact resource referred to was removed from this unit in Year 4.

‘This is an official resource for year 4 by the working scheme we use called SCARFE.

“We consulted parents before drafting our CSR policy and some resources were presented.

“The policy was drafted as a result of this consultation and consultation with parents is an ongoing process and is ongoing.

“The particular resource that was a concern that we removed from this unit.

“We have no intention of sexualizing our children.

“Notice is given to parents before these units are taught and we have reacted to this particular resource by not using it.

“We still teach about puberty, but not about this content.

“That wasn’t the subject of the lesson and that’s why we removed it.”

A spokesperson for Coram, the children’s education charity behind the video, said: ‘These classes are normally taught from year 4. The timing of puberty classes is up to each school, but is usually taught in the spring or summer of that year.. However, this is a decision made by schools as they judge the age and developmental stage of their students.
