Parent Presentation on Abstinence

Are you ready for “The Talk”?

We can help.

 

STD’s have reached epidemic proportions

Two-thirds of sexually active teens wished they had waited to have sex

50 percent of teens say their parents are the most influential factor when considering sex

 

As a parent, you play the most important role in preventing your teen’s risk-taking behaviors, including whether or not to have sex. Talk to your teens about the issues. Scary? Not as scary as leaving it to their friends and the media! We can help. We can provide you with the information and tools you need to better communicate with your teen about the issues surrounding teen sex, including peer and media pressure, sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy.

Things have changed. In the 1960’s, there were only two STDS—both curable with penicillin. Today, there are more than 25 and many are incurable. Research proves that condoms do not provide complete protection against any STD, and certainly not pregnancy. Peer and media pressure are influencing our teens as never before, but you can protect your teen’s health by showing them how and why abstinence works. Join us and:

  • Identify 5 pressures for teens to be sexually active
  • Examine 4 devastating consequences of teen sexuality
  • Explore 10 proven steps to help teens choose abstinence
