GET THE CONVERSATION STARTED!
Talking early and often with your children about sex and sexuality speaks volumes. Studies show that teens postpone sexual activity and avoid teen pregnancy if they have open, honest conversations about sex, love and relationships with their parents.
Parents and families serve as the primary sexual health educators for their children, and, therefore, the values and information you communicate to your children about sex is vital. We recognize this conversation can be difficult, so we’ve developed a “Let’s Talk” guide for parents and teens to get the conversation started and a plethora of tips to keep it going. In the guide you will find helpful information such as:
