I have always encouraged my teenagers to wait to have sex, hopefully when they are married. I still want them to have all the information. Can I assume my teenager’s high school will teach them about sex?
Thank you for this thoughtful question. It is great that you have had a chance to think about your own beliefs and values surrounding sex. We know that most teens name their parents as the biggest influence in their decisions to have sex. Knowing this, we encourage all parents to consider their personal values surrounding sex in order to send a clear message when they do talk to their teenagers about sex.
