Try that one on for size. Anyone with a daughter may look at this and instantly become enraged or confused.
Back when I was in high school, we had sex education classes and our parents had “the talk” with us. It was also taught, especially among highly religious families that if you had sex before marriage, you were no longer pure.
Here is a quote from the article;
“Abstinence doesn’t work with anything because people are complex beings with natural curiosity. The more we get told to avoid something, the more appealing it’s going to become. Add to that some crazy teenage hormones, and it’s no surprise that children with abstinence-only education are the ones popping out all the babies.
If you really want to help your child, the best thing you can do is teach them to protect themselves. Teach them how to say no to pressure from a boyfriend or girlfriend and not to have sex before they’re ready. Teach them the dangers of STDs and pregnancy and encourage them to be responsible with their decisions.”
