SEX ED IS NECESSARY

Interesting stuff. Too bad Texas is ranked worst...not surprising I guess. Maybe one day people will understand teaching about safe sex to teens does not make them automatically more likely to have sex and not practice abstinence.
I still remember the lies I was told (particularly about condoms) in my abstinence-only sex ed class in high school.... there were so many abortions and girls dropping out due to pregnancy as a direct result of believing those lies. If you want to decrease the abortion and STD rate, comprehensive sex education is crucial.
Sex ed isn't just a private issues. It is a public health problem! Lowering std, teen pregnancy, and abortion rates are just a few of the benefits we would get from having unapologetic, open, and honest conversations with kids. Sex is fun, and they'll figure it out whether you tell them or not. Its better to make sure they know what's up and can take care of themselves.
America has the highest rates of teen pregnancy & STDs of any developed nation thanks to "abstinence only" sex ed in public schools.
Wow. This contains some really eye-opening statistics about teen pregnancy rates since 2000, something that the media apparently just accepts now since it hasn't had much coverage since the late 1990s. We need comprehensive sex-ed in schools NOW.
Medically accurate and comprehensive sex ed is more important than ever! Sex Education infographic
Abstinence only states have the highest rates of teen pregnancy in the nation but comprehensive sex-ed states have the lowest rates. Yet abstinence still reigns supreme in american schools. Texas is the worst: In 2010, Texas rejected $4.4 million of federal funding for comprehensive sex ed programs. More than 96% of Texas school districts teach abstinence only. Gov. Rick Perry: "Abstinence works...it is the best form to teach our children." Texas has the highest teen birthrate in the nation.

Love means giving your teens opportunities to be responsible and empowering them to make their own decisions. Logic means allowing them to live with the natural consequences of their mistakes-and showing empathy for the pain, disappointment, and frustration they'll experience.

Parents, My Boys, Quote, Truth, Teenager, So True, Its, Friend, Kid
SO True!!! It is much harder to discipline your kids that to not... but THAT'S what will make them beter, and it is SO worth it! No one ever promised parenting would be easy!
To my son: I am not your friend, I am your parent. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down like a bloodhound when needed because I LOVE YOU!! When you understand that, I will know you are a responsible adult. You will NEVER find someone who loves, cares and worries about you more than I do!"
I tell my two teenage boys this all the time. A judge told me that if parents would stop trying to be friends with their children, this world would be a better place.
Not interested in being these kids friends... My job is to be their parent. God willing, one day they will get it.
I wish more parents would be like this and actually care about their child or not try to be his/her best friend. I see kids bossing around their parents everyday at school and it drives me nuts.
I don't think that parents can't be friends with their kids. It is hard to understand someone and live with them if you're not friends. You should be friends with your kids as long as they know you will still discipline them. I will be my kid's friend. I'm not mean
Wonder if my boys will understand this when they are teenagers??
That's the truth!! Kids need PARENTS!!!! Not BUDDIES!!

I only have one edit. I'm not sorry that I can't see the difference in these happy pictures. The only thing I'm sorry about is that there are people who still do see a difference. Love is love and love is beautiful. Look at how happy these people are! They're glowing. It's obnoxious how happy they are, in the best of ways. How hateful do you have to be to want to crush that?!
I'm straight but I support this sort of stuff. U cant see a difference because there isn't a freaking difference. love is love no matter who it is with. The sooner people realize that this world will b a better place.

I'm sorry, but I can't see the difference. Love is love. You can marry whoever you want. If you need someone to talk to, you are 100% allowed to talk to me. I don't care what your sexual orientation is or if you are gay or straight. I honestly don't care. You can come to me.
