Although sex education is a big heated controversial topic, the most intriguing convincing out of all would be the positive aspects that teenagers can learn about safe sex in schools. I started to develop my interest in this topic when it was first mentioned to me by my older sister; discussing the ways she can potentially help students that are from poverty and mainly help Latino family-based cultures get the proper sex education they
Parents should always be able to prepare their teens for the worst no matter how uncomfortable the situation might be. While parents are more worried of keeping their health private, I think teens would like to have those rights too when it comes to something personal like deciding about their sexual life. Medical health Centers should allow young teens to make their own decision when it comes to their personal sexual life and non-threating issues. Allowing young teens to decide for themselves not only creates them to be responsible for their actions but also to boost of confidence when talking to a doctor. Some teens don’t always tell the doctor everything because they know the moment they tell something their parents will know.
The show makes sure to promote these important messages to the youth of America by having links for teens to access them at anytime. “Every time the show airs, MTV promotes a website called StayTeen.org that “encourages you to enjoy your teen years and avoid the responsibilities that come with too-early pregnancy and parenting” (Dockterman). This site provides information about birth control.” These links help scared teen get the information they need without having to talk to
It gives knowledge to students so it helps lessen the number of students being pregnant at a very young age. Sex should be only between marriage couples and it is not a game that two couples should play because the consequences will always be serious and difficult to face. Sex education can help enlighten the minds of teenagers. According to the Final Results from the 2013 National Demographic and Health Survey, one in Ten Young Filipino Women Age 15 to 19 Is Already A Mother or Pregnant With First Child. Among young adult women age 20 to 24, 43 percent are already mothers and 4 percent are pregnant with their first child.
Latisha has suffered from sexual abuse for a couple of years now, and the fact that she is succeeding in her education proves that even having a bad childhood doesn’t have to get in your way of success. Most of the children in Little’s AP class has a dark background. For example, coming from a childhood full violence or sexual abuse. But even that kind of obstacle shouldn’t stop you from succeeding in getting an education. Through the book, “And Still We Rise: The Trials and Triumphs of Twelve Gifted Inner-City Students” Corwin has showed the audience that no matter where you are or where you are from, you can always succeed in
Sex education is essential to the younger generation in keeping them aware of the risks following sexual activities. While teaching sex education to children has diminished over the years, in actuality, society finds this as an arguable debate on whether it should or should not be taught in schools. Many people feel that morals are lowered when the use of condoms and anti-fertility are introduced in schools. Parents sense that this form of education urges adolescents to experiment instead of abstaining. Being that the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate, here are a few reasons why sex education should be increased in school settings: it continuously decreases the rates of STD 's and pregnancies, explains the consequences following sexual activity, and helps with abstaining until marriage.
Those who disagree if sex education should be taught in schools argues that it is not the place of school to talk about sex. It is belong to parent’s responsibility because they know what information is needed by their children. In any case, many parents feel not comfortable to talk it. It seems that most parents are either strongly against or strongly in favor of sex education classes, but very few parents are in the middle ground. Moreover, most students are mature enough to handle a sex education course, but sex education should not be
Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness. In school, drug testing can discourage the use of it to students. Some students fear that knowing of drug tests will pressure them into not doing drugs.
The American Psychological Association notes that an ongoing longitudinal study found that none of the lesbian mothers had abused their children.”(APA n.d. )It states that the thoughts and fears of higher risk of sexual abuse by gay parents are not supported by research. Another objection is that children will have a sexual-orientation problem or become homosexual when they grow up. In order to overthrow this view, an amount of studies show that children grow up in same-sex family are most live normal lives and have less
As the results of various surveys show (see Chapin, 2000 and Y Bay-Cheng, 2001), mass media are important providers of sex education for adolescents. Teens usually learn about birth control (use of condoms and pills), various sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and HIV/AIDS from mass media. Mass media very often turns out to be the only source of information about the matters because parents and other adults may not be competent or may feel uncomfortable to talk about it. Other studies show (ibid.) that media may also provide the so called sexual scripting of behaviors - for example, guidelines how to behave in the first date, who is to be considered and chosen as one’s mate not to mention a depiction of the very sexual acts.
This helps putting a pause on the puberty and let children have a little more time to grow and develop and be more confident of their gender identity. The drawback of this treatment is that very little research has been done in this field. According to few studies that have been done in past the distress about gender will shift with time. According to one of the doctor the majority of kids with gender dysphoria will not grow up to transgender adolescents or adults. Starting puberty blocking medicals as early as possible is very important for some people because if major changes accords like growing of breasts or deepening of voice they cannot be
They could encourage teenage girls to speak up about their predicaments or prevent them entirely. These centres that are specifically for women can handle patients with a greater amount of care and expertise that a physician or hospital may not be capable of. For example, Planned Parenthood has a RESTORE program that aids women that have been victims of sexual assault, abuse, or rape; they offer free counseling to guide victims through what happened and support in reporting the crime and ensuing court hearings. These are things that a hospital or physician might not be able to do, but a health-care centre for women

One mother commented, “I have really enjoyed reading this book but I would not recommend this for my teenage children to read. The reason behind my hesitation is because the way the ‘monster’ makes [Kristina] feel is almost enticing rather than revolting” ("All Member Reviews for Crank”). If mothers and fathers are working toward keeping their children away from drugs as they grow up, they certainly do not want a character like Kristina threatening the effectiveness of their parenting. Since Kristina describes herself as “the perfect daughter” and a “gifted high school junior” at the beginning of the novel, many young adult readers can identify with her, which also implies that any young adult, regardless of their perfect GPA or involvement in numerous after school activities, can
I am currently taking this class to have a better understanding on Business Communications and also to get my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice in November. My career goal is to become a Probation officer for juvenile’s long term but for short term I would like to work with adults but not for long. I prefer to help children just because I needed an adult to help me as teenager and I never got that and I want to impact someone life. I currently am not employed do to my high risk pregnancy. My doctor thought it was best I did not work until I am no longer considered high risk and that was up until I was almost seven months pregnant so it’s hard to find a job and get maternity leave this late in my pregnancy.
