A recent report found nearly half of all high school students have had intercourse, placing them at risk for STDs, HIV, and pregnancy. This makes sex education more important than ever.

Unfortunately, new CDC data shows sex ed is becoming less prevalent in grades 6-12. Read this article to find out more, then come back and share what we should do to educate our teens.

Do you talk with your teen about sex and STDs?

Yes, my son had sex ed in "health" and we talked to him about it. He was sexually active in his late teens.
