China has long been considered a conservative country where people try to avoid talking about sex, especially to children. But things have started to change as people attach more importance to sex education. Now an increasing number of schools begin to offer sex education to students.
Sex education, especially at an earlier age, is vital for children’s growth. First, sex education provides children with the information they need to understand their bodies and gender roles in positive ways. Second, it boosts the likelihood that teens delay having sex. Third, it helps to prevent unwanted consequences such as premature pregnancy, HIV infection or AIDS.
To launch sex education correctly, parents, schools and the whole society should make joint efforts. At home, instead of telling the children that they were picked up on the street, parents should answer children’s questions honestly. In schools, especially high schools, sex education needs to go further, focusing, explicitly if possible, on safe sex. As for the society, it should lift taboo on sex and provide more channels for children to learn about sex.
Frustration Education should be Strengthened among College Students
College students should be guided correctly to face frustrations in life, which has been generally accepted. Frustration is inevitable during our life, and frustration education should be carried out among colleges and universities. The truth of it is deep and profound.
Many remarkable examples contribute to this argument. A case in point is that there are an increasing number of college students committing suicide each year when confronted with some kind of frustration. This is close to suggest that strengthening frustration education allows of no delay. For another example, it seems that successful people tend to be good at dealing with frustrations. Moreover, most of the students are often annoyed and discouraged by frustrations instead of drawing lessons.
Judging from the evidence offered, we might safely draw the conclusion that frustration education is essential to the college students. But what is worth noting is colleges should also provide psychological service for the students while giving frustration education. To conclude, college students should be guided in the right path when facing setbacks in life.
Conducting Moral Education in Colleges
In the current world, college students become morally more tolerant to the phenomena such as exam—cheating, academic dishonesty and default on loans. In this case, it’s urgently important that we conduct moral education in college.
Moral education is beneficial in the following aspects. To begin with, it makes us aware of our personal responsibility. We must comply with social moral standards and learn to behave and conduct ourselves in society. Secondly, moral education teaches us to shun evil and do good, turning the uncivilized to the civilized. Thirdly, with higher moral standards, we will be more considerate towards others and avoid quarrels or conflicts, which contributes to maintaining a harmonious society.
As for how to conduct moral education in college, on one hand, theoretical moral education should be integrated into all aspects of campus life, including classroom teaching and extracurricular activities. On the other hand, we should encourage students to take part in moral practices such as volunteer activities. Through these measures, they will know better about the meaning of life and shoulder their social responsibilities.
