Ages 13-18

From age 13-18 there are MANY conversations to have. Parents should talk about the benefits of delaying sexual activity. Your children will also need to develop the skills necessary in order to do so. You'll want to discuss reasons to wait, what healthy relationships look and feel like, as well as pregnancy and disease prevention for when they do decide to have sex. Experts recommend sharing where they can access sexual and reproductive health care services with or without you. Encourage your child to evaluate their relationships. Reinforce that healthy relationships are built on trust and equal power. Ensure that they know how to say “no.” Practice role playing difficult situations such as parties, drugs, and alcohol. Explain what mutual consent means and why it is important. Know what schools are covering in the classroom and have other adults you trust discuss the importance of being safe and having healthy relationships. Look for videos and courses that can help support you in having all the conversations that are needed at this time. It takes conversations early and often to raise a sexually healthy adolescent and adult. Always keep an eye out for moments to have important conversations in everyday life. You've got this! We are here to help!  Check it out!
