Teenage sex education website
TGP Guide for Adults: For parents, teachers, coaches, school nurses.
Designed by the PA Department of Health to be used with the Teen Game Plan, this informative guide provides adults with the communication skills necessary to talk about life planning and encourage healthy decisions.
The researchers analyzed data from 1,719 heterosexual respondents to the NSFG who were 15–19. The authors focused on young people’s answers to two questions: whether they had received “any formal instruction at school, church, a community center, or some other place about how to say no to sex” before the age of 18 and whether they had received any formal education about birth control.
In particular, the authors found that receiving information about birth control in formal sex education was associated with a 50% lower risk of teen pregnancy when compared to receiving information only on abstinence.
It also confirmed that talking to young people about birth control does not lead to increased sexual activity or higher STD rates as many critics of comprehensive sexuality education continue to claim.
For .99, you get the virtual visit video and a variety of safe sex resources to empower every teen to take care of her or his reproductive health.
