Many parents foolishly give the kids the "just say no" speech without ever explaining WHY teen sex is a BAD IDEA. Parents who think that "just say no" will be enough usually get the bad news that their teen daughter is pregnant or their teen son GOT a girl pregnant."Kids are starting sex as young as twelve."
Why? Are they not educated and expected to have morals and ethics? Who is to blame for poor child behavior?
If parents don't do a good job explaining WHY teens should avoid sex while in middle and high school, then in my opinion they have only THEMSELVES to blame if their teen daughter gets pregnant or their teen son causes a pregnancy.
