Sexual Health – More Talking, Less Stigma

Sexual Health – More Talking, Less Stigma

We hope this site will give parents new tools for talking with their children about sex. Parents and other caregivers can really make a difference when they talk with their kids. And, did you know that preteens and teens say their parents are the biggest influence in their decisions about sex? Teens who report having open and honest conversations with their parents about sex are more likely to delay sexual activity, have fewer partners, and use condoms and other contraceptives when they do have sex.

We developed this website with the help from lots of parents, youth, and good health providers. The website has lots of helpful information about: 1) Good communication skills, 2) Parenting preteens and teens, and 3) Factual information about sexual health topics.

It is important to know that every family and every parent is different. Our goal is not to tell you what to say but to make sure you have accurate information to share with your children along with strong communication skills. We’re here to help you get the conversation started and to keep it going.
