ABSTRACT
This article focuses on sex education in schools. One generalization that can be made is that sex should never be taught as a subject by itself. It is a part of the rest of life and should be approached in the curriculum through ordinary situations in which sex questions naturally arise. Sex education includes helping the adolescent with his attitude toward his own body. The fear of the adolescent that his own sex development is not normal, that he will not be physically attractive to the opposite sex, is so universal that it should be regarded as a normal fear.
