ANNE WEYMAN hopes due emphasis will be given to sex and personal relationships from primary school level (Letters, 28 February). Parents should be wary of some of the resources presently used in schools, notably the Primary School Workbook produced by the FPA for 4-11-year-olds. Teachers are told not to mention marriage. Homosexuality is put on a par with heterosexuality. It suggests that 4-7-year-olds may give permission for their private parts to be touched and says "sole and mutual masturbation is now encouraged as part of safer sex". Is this the kind of thing parents want their children to be taught?
