KINGSTON, Jamaica —

A family planning official is encouraging parents to talk with their children about sex at an early age as an increasing number of children are experimenting with sexual intercourse.

Shauna-Kay Rowe of the Family Planning and Education Unit of the Jamaica Red Cross told the Jamaica Observer Monday Exchange meeting of editors and reporters that children are becoming more exposed to sex through cell phones and other devices.

She said that parents need to educate their children about sex and monitor their use of the Internet closely.

‎Meanwhile, Dr Sandra Knight, said the age parents should start talking to their kids “as young as they need it”.

“We have kids who are masturbating at age five…,” she said.
