Teen Sex

The hot button isn't just sex; it's teen sex. A lot of us would rather hide under a rock than to acknowledge that children - your children - are sexually active. Rather than teaching them how to protect themselves should they decide to engage in it, we opt to keep them in the dark with abstinence-only programs at school.

Being the sort of person who cries when a condom commercial airs on television before 9PM can be disastrous if you cringe at the thought of talking to your teen about doing the nasty. Abstinence-only ideology isn't cutting it - what can we do to stop teen pregnancies if we refuse to teach them the alternative of safe sex?
