Why wouldn’t schools choose the healthier option to inform our teenagers of today the reality of how harmful unprotected sex can be? Why are parents so ignorant in their beliefs that this should only be taught at home. It is a constant debate between parents and facilitators and in the meantime the ratio is growing higher and higher for young pregnancies and or sexually transmitted diseases.
Not all parents will end up educating their teenagers about sex education, mainly because some parents do not want to teach their teenagers because it will make them want to experiment while some parents are also uncomfortable talking to their teenagers about sex education, parents told the authors of The Parents Role article (“The Parent 's Role"). In the best way to solve this problem I think a good solution is to have parents be more educated about what can happen if their own teenagers are not taught properly and for parents to take classes to know what their teenagers are being
Parents of teens need to have an understanding with the teen that there are major consequences for becoming pregnant. Parents also need to enforce safe sex. Parents need to let the teen know that if the teenager is to have sex then it needs to be safe. Another way for teens to stay safe is for parents to describe abstinence. Abstinence is the safest way to make sure teens do not become pregnant early in life.
Birth control is not available to teenage girls without a parents consent, yet condoms are. In this paper I will be telling you about why I think teenage girls SHOULD be able to get birth control without their parent’s permission. Now first off I want to say that I’m not over here supporting teen sex, and I do understand that most people think that if you’re going to have sex in the first place, you should be able to ask for help and protection when you need it. I do agree with that, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s still going to happen. There still are going to be people that won’t ask for help when they need it, especially young ladies.
Depending on their age, children need to be taught about birth control, including condoms and emergency contraceptives if needed, way before having sex. These versions of contraception can help reduce the risk of women becoming pregnant and help both partners from contracting sexually transmitted diseases such as herpes, which is not curable only treatable. Teen pregnancy is increasing and this because of the teaching of sexual abstinence in schools. Many teens that become pregnant... ... middle of paper ... ...hat Bell included in her article both groups, those who participated in abstinence only and those who didn’t, reported that the use condoms were the same does not justify anything. If I were still an adolescent 9th or 10th grader and an adult asked me if I use protection while having sex I would lie and say “Of course!” because of knowing its wrong and don’t want to be embarrassed.
Parents also fear that if adolescent teens are given a choice of contraceptive, it is as if given permission to engage in sexual activities. Although this is a very common opinion, it is only a misconception of the real facts. By “…age 15, 27% of girls and 33% of boys have had sexual intercourse,” (Singer). Most of these parents want to blame these statistics on the schools having contraceptives readily available, but they are clearly wrong. The truth is, adolescent teens will engage in sexual activities if and when they choose.
Many schools teach sex education to children. Teaching sex education can help children in many ways as well informing them about what they should do and not do. Many young men and woman start puberty at an early age which is why they should know about sex. As it is stated in the selection, “Sex education has aimed mostly at saving young girls from early sex --- and, therefore ---- from sexually transmitted disease, while preserving the institutions of marriage and family” (Friedman 773). Therefore, for the reason being that many young girls and boys need to be informed about sex education.

( Bond-Zielinski,1). Bond-Zielinski also talks about the topic of role-model, “Another important thing for parents to remember is role modeling. A parent 's behavior should match their words. The "do as I say, not as I do" approach will have a great impact on teenagers who are careful and constant observers of the adults in their lives.”(1).
They also take away from their own lives, because a child raising a child is a big task for anyone to take on. The best way for teenagers to decrease the rate in pregnancy is to practice abstinence. It helps control the birth rates and stops the transmittal of STD's. Most teens have sex because of peer pressure and the fear of being left out. Abstinence is very important but the friends you child chooses is also important to the way they approach having sex.
