One of the major causes of teen pregnancy is that teenagers are routinely lied to by adults about sex.
Frank open discussions about it could help solve some problems.
This whole idea of jailing teachers this is not a good idea.
The poor complain; they always do
But thatís just idle chatter
Our system brings reward to all
At least all those who matter.
I once talked to a dad who said he had told his teen daughter that kissing gets you pregnant. He figured that would keep her from getting anywhere close to having sex.
I explained to him that three things would happen:
1. She'd easily find out that kissing didn't get you pregnant.
2. She wouldn't know what really gets you pregnant, except what she hears from her peers, which probably won't be very accurate.
3. She knows she can't trust her dad to tell her.
