It's All About Communication

Organizations that study trends in teenage sexual behavior say that the single most important factor in helping a teen stay abstinent is parental disapproval of teen sex.  If you really do disapprove of teens having sex, and if your teen knows that clearly, you've already won half the battle.   Also, remember, during adolescence you are guiding your teen through the difficult and often complicated process of becoming an adult.  You want your teen to make healthy decisions in the area of sexuality, but they will need your help to do that.
