Professional help seems the only option to an increasing number of Chinese parents, most of whom belong to the post-80s generation, who want to provide their children with sex education.
"I need professional help for my six-year-old boy as the teachers in kindergarten have no idea about sex education," China Daily quoted a 30-year-old mother, who refused to be named, as saying.
She alleged that a kindergarten teacher yelled at her son for saying that he loves a girl in his class, after which he refused to attend further classes.
Although she tries to find information on sex education for children online, not all of this information, however, is accurate, she said.
The mother is planning to pay for a four-hour course from Hu Ping, a sexologist who has given lectures on sex education in about 50 Chinese cities.
"The problem of sex education in China is not about a dearth of knowledge, but a lack of proper methods to spread the knowledge. Professional sex educationists in China are not up to the mark," Hu said.
"Sexual education should begin when your baby is born. The first class should teach them to respect their body," she added.
