An Abuja-based consultant on sex education, Mrs. Jessica Sampson, has recommended sex education as a panacea to high rate of child sexually abuse in communities.

Sampson told Newsmen on Sunday that sex education for children would serve as a high preventive measure against child sexual abuse, saying sex education can prevent crime and other nefarious activities round the subject matter as the world is recording more child sexual abuse, most especially in the rural communities.

She said the importance of proper sex education which was about body protection than pleasure, should be focused on boundaries, awareness and consequences on early sexual exposure.

Sampson said it was important to know the appropriate age to teach the children sex education which was paramount for children as too much information can be risky.

Sampson called on parents, schools and governments to work in partnership in teaching the right information to every child as education was a basic fundamental human right.

She said that the kids should be empowered to understand certain topics in their developmental age than leave them curious and inquisitive.

Sampson advocated for parents to acquire proper knowledge on sex education for proper orientation.
