When teenagers and parents lack a decent communication, a teen girl may decide on an abortion to hide the fact that she had gotten pregnant. The consequences of teenage motherhood can be equally difficult and include economic disadvantage, withdrawal from education and the widening of any existing social inequalities. A Unicef report (2001) on teenage pregnancy in industrialised countries listed the United Kingdom as having the highest teenage pregnancy in Europe and the second in all industrialised countries in the world after the U.S.A. Parents are potentially an important source of information and support to their children on sex issues. There is limited information on research on parents’ involvement in sex education and relationships and the impact they would have towards promoting sexual health, rather than simply avoiding ill health and unwanted pregnancies.
Britain now has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Europe and second highest in the world. Government-led initiatives providing ready access to free condoms available through schools is another variation on the same theme of underage sex and will surely contribute significantly to the amount of pregnancies that can be caused because of a lack of knowledge and resources. A change in parental attitude has also occurred in the latest generation.

The author states that parents argue that children need to be guided and motivated in order to perform well in the society which is in their best interest.

In the Shakespearean play “Hamlet”, the reader is witness to tragic story in which the protagonists parents and their actions and weaknesses, ultimately lead to his demise. To begin with, after his father King Hamlet dies, the character of the younger Hamlet is immediately disturbed by the actions of his mother.
It enables the flow of information from source to receiver and vice versa. In modern world of today, the educational standards have been raised quite high and developed countries are improving their educational facilities to produce future leaders. Communication enhances the sharing of ideas and research findings for mitigation of education (International Institute for Educational Planning, 1-3; Agustian, Djoko and Hitendra, 1-4).
This proposal puts into perspective the need to understand these barriers and recommending appropriate remedies. In the spheres of education, knowledge sharing is inevitable, especially in the current generation.

However, the critical question is: Where is the appropriate venue to best teach sex education to children Is it the home or the school In order to answer this, it is important to lay down the advantages and the disadvantages of teaching it in these venues.
