Tips from the Vance County Parenting Task Force

Discussing sex with your child
Mar. 12, 2014 @ 11:11 AM

You are the most important link between your teen, your teen’s health and a bright future.

You are his or her most valued source of support, information and hope.

Decisions teens make now can affect their health and character for the rest of their lives.

You can provide the encouragement and direction that can help your teen avoid the health risks of early sex, pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease.

It’s a tough job, but the rewards are remarkable.
