Being Safe and Healthy - Raising Teen Awareness About Sexual Health
Granted, we'd all like to live in an ideal world, were there is plenty for all and kindness all around. A place where keeping options open and not becoming sexually active is delayed long enough for youth to enjoy being young. That being said, it is incredibly important that we hold on to what we aspire and be realistic about what is. In this hypersexualized world, sexual activity happens. When youth begin exploring their sexuality, adults need to be able to have informed discussions with them and aid youth in still keeping options open (by using contraceptive barriers) and by being able to openly discuss health risks like sexually transmitted diseases. Our own, Dr Jill Foster discusses this in the video below: Healthy Kids Dr Foster
