This detail is very descriptive, and is another reason teen pregnancy is happening. One little move on a girl or guy can turn you into becoming a mother or father. This isn't the only “pornographic” detail Luis states in his book, there are much more. He writes these details in his book because it is the reality of what teenagers do and he wants to teach teenagers life lessons about sex. Luis faced discrimination, arrests, gangs, drugs, and all kinds of street crimes.
A teenager should be legally required to first have their parents’ permission before obtaining contraceptives because their parents can offer them guidance and support – and financial help if an accidental disease or pregnancy occurs. Even though giving birth control to a teen is often a responsible decision, it can have negative consequences. For some teens, knowing that they aren 't at as much risk for sexually transmitted diseases and that pregnancy risks are greatly reduced birth control encourages promiscuous behavior. Teens who may have then practiced abstinence, now have a reason to become sexually active. Birth control also poses honest concerns for religious families.
As well, it is safer for the teens that do have sex to know how to do so safely than to just assume that no teen will have premarital sex. Given that so many students will not abstain from sex, “programs have an obligation to help teens understand the risks and responsibilities that come with sexual activity. Survey after survey indicates that adolescents have a tremendous unmet need for information related to sexuality, contraception, STDs, and making sexual decisions” (Government Should Fund Sex Education). Comprehensive sex education will prepare teens in the event that they chose to not stay abstinent. It will teach them how to make good choices and how to weigh the benefits and consequences of their actions, because it is impossible to make an accurate decision without knowing all of
Government. The authors, Kathrin F. Stanger-Hall and David W. Hall, of “Abstinence-Only Education and Teen Pregnancy Rates: Why We Need Comprehensive Sex Education in the U.S.” discuss how sex education is demonstrated throughout the U.S. and how the government may be a contributor to these alarming rates (2011). They state, “some argue that sex education that covers safe sexual practices, such as condom use, sends a mixed message to students and promotes sexual activity” in describing the U.S. Government’s standpoint on sex education (Stanger-Hall & Hall, 2011, p. 1). They strictly believe that abstinence-only education throughout schools is the answer. Abstinence is restraining one’s self from all forms of sexual activity and choosing to not participate in any sexual acts.
When you tell a teenager not to do something, they 're probably going to do it anyways. With 48% of today 's teens having sex, the step should be made to inform teens how to handle unwanted pregnancies with contraception. Comprehensive sex education, which teaches students about methods used to prevent pregnancy and STD 's, should be taught instead. Comprehensive special-education teaches teenagers about realistic methods to prevent pregnancies and STDs. The program teaches teens the responsibility of sex while also saying it 's OK to remain abstinent.
For Goodness Sex, by Al Vernacchio, is a welcome relief from the two previous books; Girls & Sex and Man Interrupted, as the focus is about sexuality as a whole; gender, sexual orientation, etc., rather than on the culture of females and males. In a chapter titled “Gender Myths,” Vernacchio (2014) asks the question, “male and female, is that all there is” (Vernacchio, A., p. 112, 2014)? In teaching his class on Sexuality and Society, Vernacchio asks these questions and questions similar, demonstrating that he takes into consideration that there are feelings at stake and keeps in mind the human aspect of sex and sexuality as he is intentionally behind challenging students to foresee and develop their sense of values about sex, instead of constantly being “in the moment.”
Although some instances do not need parental consent, involving the parents when applicable is definitely important. Pamphlets, videos, support groups, and peers are also resources that can help with an ethical decision such as birth control for teen females. The ethical dilemma on birth control for teenage females, a description of ethical principles relating to this issue, and resources and procedures nurses use to assist making ethical choices have all been covered. In today’s society social media, television, and movies play a big role in persuading adolescents on their choices. Parents, nurses, doctors, and other educators need to be open to all topics of conversation, especially sex education, and be able to provide adequate information to teach adolescent females about making the right choice for
A strategic method to help reach and treat these offenders would be to put them through different treatment programs and every sex offender requires treatment, but those more severe would then require a more serious treatment. The term sex offender is not subject to one offense because it includes many different sex crimes. Some treatments available are medicinal, psychological, and some surgery, these all help with the reentering process back in the community. There is a state and federal mandate that requires sex offenders to register themselves as sex offenders
They focus on sexual health but go into detail with the topic of having subtopics such as sexually transmitted diseases, contraception, and pregnancy. Many people and organizations believe that sex education is important since helping people prevent HIV and STDs has helped increase the empowerment against sexual violence. Planned Parenthood also offers to teach people personal skills this includes communication, negotiation, and decision-making. Many schools are said to not offer students the opportunities to learn these skills and that is why Planned Parenthood is stepping in. They as well help educate people on society and culture this talks about gender roles, diversity, and sexuality in the media.
Why Sex Education is Important in School ? Sex is an essential aspect of human life. It is a natural phenomenon and without applying it the cycle of the human being cannot move ahead or cannot assume. Sex as being such an important part of our life, it is necessary for all to move detail knowledge and information about sex education. Regarding sex education everyone has their one perception.
Sue Alford describes the Sex Ed curriculum as: “Teaches about abstinence as the best method for avoiding STDs and unintended pregnancy, but also teaches about condoms and contraception… It also helps young people explore their own values, goals, and options” (3). The Sex Ed curriculum understands that abstinence is the best way to prevent STD and pregnancy rates, but they are also understanding that not everyone will wait until marriage to become sexually active. Because of this, they make sure they provide information that could benefit everyone. Although Sex Ed includes information regarding all aspects of sex, Abstinence Only Programs are a different story. The curriculum in Sex Ed and Abstinence Only Programs differ but the overall message in both are the same.
If young adults are going to have sex either way, then why would it be logical to teach them that the only way to keep themselves safe from pregnancy and STDs is through abstinence? Stanger-Hall raises the point, “advocates for continued abstinence only education need to ask themselves: If teens don’t learn about human reproduction, including safe sexual health practices to prevent unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as how to plan their reproductive adult life in school, then when should they learn about it and from whom?” (Stanger-Hall). It is important to ask why sex is portrayed as “dirty” in society when it is a necessary act. This taboo relationship that kids begin to see as normal hurts in the long run when they become too scared to ask their parents for information. Why does society continue to treat a normal human function as indecent and unfit for discussion?
In this article Pamela Druckerman makes a point to say that kids in today’s society have questions about sex at early ages and those they deserve correct answers. Druckerman did research about different cultures and their sex education compared and contrasted to the ones we have in the U.S. She believes sex education for the appropriate
It is undeniable that most college parties contain alcoholic drinks that may increase the chances of being a victim of rape. However, that does not mean there is no way for helpless individuals to determine when a date rape drug has been placed into a drink. While at George Mason University, I hope to investigate this problem and aid in discovering a better and easier way to detect date rape drugs that are unexpectedly placed in beverages. While I may not have been personally affected by this issue, it does not mean that I am not interested in the topic. Starting college is already a very scary time for most students, and I want to make the fear of rape
Using their views on the accessibility of birth control, Planned Parenthood has been educating teens in schools about being sexually active and the different Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) that students could put themselves at risk for (Who We Are, 2014). Teaching kids about sex in school as a mandatory course has some mixed reviews. Some parents think that is not ethical to bring intercourse to the thoughts of their children when they should be learning more from their core curriculums. On the other hand, teenagers are known to have sex regardless if it is to their parents knowledge or not and the parents find it okay to enlighten the child about this type of
