Sharing a cabin with 8 or so boys will invariably lead to the topic of modesty of speech. A couple boys are using vulgar language. My eight-year old informed them it wasn't okay to use such language. I didn't perceive a major conflict so I just informed my boy that he was right, but that he wasn't responsible for them, only himself. He was right to stand up for what is right, and if the language continued he could mention it again or just try ignoring them.
Immodest speech undermines a child’s purity. “Purity requires modesty” (CCC 2521). It is hard to think of a quicker way to sexually activate generations of children than by violating modest speech through sex education and sex “safety” programs. Such violations tear down innocence and the natural barrier of modesty God put in place to protect children and their purity.
Modest speech does more than just protect children. It shows respect for their dignity and value as human beings. John Paul II (then Karol Wojtyla) in his book, Love and Responsibility explained that “sexual modesty…protects the value of the person. But there is more to it than that. It is a matter not just of protecting but of revealing the value of a person” (p. 179). We cannot strip modesty from speech without stripping dignity from children. If we are to uphold dignity, then we must uphold modest speech.
The feministic promoters of sex-ed are deceiving us or are themselves deceived when the promote sex-ed at an early age. They proclaim that they want men to see them as more than objects, but then try to ensure that the next generation will be completely objectified.
"explicit and premature sex education can never be justified in the name of a prevailing secularized culture. On the contrary, parents must educate their own children to understand and face up to the forces of this culture, so that they may always follow the way of Christ” (Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality, p. 143; emphasis added).
