May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

โฃ
May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, and roughly 1-in-4 girls will be pregnant at least once before age of 20. โฃ
โฃ
The U.S. teen birth rate is at an all-time low. As of 2016, the teen birth rate declined 67 percent since its peak in 1991. Yet despite plummeting rates, teen pregnancy and birth rates for teens ages 15-19 in the U.S. remain among the highest of industrialized nations.โฃ
โฃ
The biggest predictor of efficacy of preventing teen pregnancy is parents talking to their adolescents. Parents, if you can start having these conversations before your daughters start menstruating, then you have a greater chance of preventing them from having an unwanted pregnancy. And itโ€™s the same for boys โ€“ it’s ideal to begin having talks before the onset of puberty, or around age 10.โฃ
โฃ
By proactively having the โ€œSex Talk,โ€ or maybe call it the โ€œRelationship Talkโ€, you have a chance to share your own values in this area, and can be sure you are providing your children with important information not only about pregnancy prevention, but about sexually transmitted diseases, consent, and other related topics.โฃ
โฃ
Having trouble navigating โ€œthe talkโ€ with your teens? Send us a message and weโ€™d be happy to assist you in starting the conversation. ๐Ÿ’™
