It’s awkward, but I know I need to have the conversation

We know it’s nerve-racking, but you probably agree that it’s better to be safe than sorry.

That’s normal! Most parents want their teens to get good information about sexual health. For your kids though, getting accurate information from you is much better than who-knows-what on the internet. It WILL be awkward, but don’t sweat it, you’ve got this! 

Talking about pregnancy prevention and STD safety with your child will make a difference. In a national survey, teens reported that their parents have the greatest influence over their decisions about sex—more than friends, siblings, or the media.

Most teens also say they share their parents’ values about sex, and making decisions about delaying sex would be easier if they could talk openly and honestly with their parents.
