What smart teenagers know about dating relationships and sex

03 Nov

Even if you think you know everything you need to know about sex, take a few minutes and read on. Many teens believe waiting until they are ready to have sex is important. For example, some teens may want to wait until they are older (adults); other teens may want to wait until they feel their relationship is ready. However, if you're going to have sex, using condoms is the best way to reduce the risk for getting STIs. Remember to use a latex condom every time you have sex—no matter what other type of birth control you and your partner might also use.To protect against getting an infection from having oral sex, use a condom, dental dam, or non-microwavable plastic wrap. To make sure you stay healthy, get regular medical checkups.Then I managed to get every counselor in my school system (46 schools) to purchase one for every parenting and counseling library! You won't be disappointed--this book won't gather any dust on the bookshelf.The 4 books in my parenting and counseling library have already been checked out 27 times in only 6 weeks!I wish this book had existed when I was a teenager!

Teens share how embarassing it is to talk with parents (and even friends) about sex, but this book allows parents and teens a way to learn and talk, while growing closer together. Hatchell's style of writing keeps the pages flying as you tear through the book looking for the next pearl of wisdom--or funny experience that everyone can relate to! Then I bought 4 more books for my school counseling library.

Maybe your relationship is headed for a crash- & -burn and you need to know what to do next.
