More than 90 percent of parents and teachers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia support the introduction of sex education in public schools, according to a new study by a female professor at Umm al-Qura University in Mecca.
Professor Amal Mohammed Banouna told Elaph news website that children between 3 and 8 years of age develop curiosity to know more about sexuality and tend to ask numerous questions to understand and explore themselves and the world around them. Some of the children’s questions, professor Banouna said, can be embarrassing to the elders.
