When most of your peers are engaging it pre-marital sex, it is hard not wanting to experiment like they are doing. If condoms were given away at public high schools teenagers would be able to access them easily. Despite all the support, some believe public schools should not provide students with condoms. Some families think it is the parents’ responsibility to provide protection to their teenagers. If the teenagers are not talking to their parents about sex, the parents do not know that the teenagers are sexually active.
Although teaching abstinence is taught to keep teenagers away from the reparations of engaging in sexual behaviors, it is not the most effective teaching method seeing the increased rate of STDs & HIV, an increased sexual influence in today’s society and the lack of education that teenagers have on sexual behaviors. Therefore, comprehensive sex education should be required in schools. Before there was a great deal of civilization, sexual education was seen from animals. In the early 1830’s ministers and reformers began to publish books and pamphlets that informed young
So people in committed relationships should still practice safe sex, you’ll never know what can happen and it’s always better to be on the safe side. Practicing safe sex not only prevents you from getting any kind of diseases, but it also reduces your chance of getting pregnant or getting someone else pregnant. Being pregnant at a very young age can possibly hurt one’s future, it could cause you to drop out of school and find an instant job just to support the baby. As good and fun sex can be, being safe means highly protected and less chance to have any problems. No one wants to get an abortion and kill a child if they don’t want to keep their pregnancy.
Rather than live in the past and holding on to outdated "traditions", we should be keeping up with the times, especially those of us who plan to go into a helping professional field like teaching or social work. Studies now show that states with abstinence only education have the highest teen pregnancy rates (1) I can completely understand how providing birth control to middle school students would make some unconformable. Nobody wants to think about 12 year old children having sex, least of all their parents. But we can pretend it's not happening to feel a little better about ourselves and keep dealing with teen pregnancy and young kids having unprotected sex, or we can address it like the adults we are, and step in to intervene. When we choose not to discuss sex openly, we reinforce
Comprehensive sex education is the traditional “sex talk” education. Abstinence only education is simply “Don’t do it until you are married.” Which of these forms of education are effective? Comprehensive sex education is taught in schools and focuses on abstinence is the only way to 100% prevent teen pregnancy as well as sexual transmitted disease. In addition to abstinence only education, comprehensive sex education provides education to students regarding how to protect oneself against pregnancy and disease should the choice be to have sex prior to marriage. The program is developmentally age appropriate and provides information and education on relationships, decision-making, assertiveness and skill building in order to resist social and peer pressure all depending on the child’s grade level.
But the question is whether parents should shave the right to check their teens social media accounts. Teenagers want their privacy, especially from their parents. They want to have conversations and inside jokes that belong only to them and their friends. Teenagers do not want to feel like they are sharing everything in their lives with their parents. This is why I believe parents should not be able to check their teen’s social media accounts.
Parents, Take Control If a parent had to go as far as to put a monitoring application on his or her child’s phone, it’s my belief that they have already failed as a parent. Parents should instill good values into their children, and let them know what’s right from wrong. Adults have experienced many things throughout their lives which can have a positive influence on their children if they share those experiences with them. In “Blame Parents, Not Kids, for Sexting”, Leonard Sax talks about how parents are to blame for their children sexting, and that there should be monitoring software installed on their phones to prevent it. Although, Sax has some good points and examples, he ultimately fails to make a convincing case.
Abstinence-plus Education first, encourages teens to be abstinence, but recognizes that abstinence may not be the choice for all teens. Even though, comprehensive sex education greatly emphasizes the benefits of being abstinent, Abstinence-only opponents argue that educating teens on sex before marriage is immoral and should not be taught in schools. On the other hand, what does that approach say to gay and lesbian students forbidden by law to “marry” in a legal sense (Wiley)? However, Abstinence-only Education is being taught in many public schools throughout the country, but studies show that more than 50 percent of students between the ages of 13-15 have already engaged in some type of sexual activity. In addition, the majority of those teens were unaware of the health risk and impact that unprotected or premature sex can have on their lives.
why should they hav’t to suffer a pregnancy that they didn’t plan for?, A women should have the right to get pregnant when they want and a horrible case like that I strongly agree they should have a choice instead of people forcing them to carry a child that their not ready for. Unfit teenage parents should be able to get an abortion because a teenager can not barley defend themselves. How are they possibly going to take care of a child when its even harder? When most teenage parents are unfit/not stable . I believe that young teenagers should be on birth control to help resolve this problem.
Comprehensive sex education is mostly trying to stop the spreading of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. The class does teach that abstinence is the best way of making 100 percent sure a person does not get pregnant or get a sexually transmitted disease. They spend more of the class teaching about protection and contraceptives. Abstinence by itself is another way of teaching that can prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy. The teaching of abstinence is telling people to not have sex until marriage.
