More About this Product
Over a million American teenage girls become pregnant each year. Studies show that many of these girls suffer from low self-esteem and become sexually active in a misguided attempt to validate themselves. Most lack information regarding contraceptives, or simply do not use them. This program supports Health units on human sexuality, and behavioral choices. Students' understanding of the relationship between unsafe behaviors, personal health and the biological consequences of sexual involvement is enhanced as actual teen parents discuss the responsibility, emotional, financial, educational, and social costs for which they were not prepared. Students are provided with strategies for resisting peer pressure and developing refusal skills. Abstinence is strongly advocated by the program's young parents, doctors, counselors and well-known celebrities. Students who may be thinking of becoming sexually active are urged to delay sexual involvement until adulthood ... to keep from becoming one of the many children having children.
