Crook Counff Family Platming Barbara Coy, Director Sex and teens This article is not to debate whether teenagers are having sex or whether a sexual relationship at this time in life is correct or not. This article is to let parents and adults know there is a lot they can do to reduce the risk of teens be- come sexually active and subse- quently pregnant. Crook County Family Planning is working with the National Campaign to prevent Teen Pregnancy. Together these agencies offer you Ten Tips that can help teens delay becoming sexually active. 1. Be clear about your own sexual values and attitudes. Com- municate with your children what do you think about love, sex, and relationships. Some questions you may want to ask yourself, What do think about teens being sexually active? Who is respon- sible for setting sexual limits in a relationship and how is it to be done? Were you sexually active when you were a teenager and what do you think about that now? 2. Talk with your children early and often about sex, and be ape- cific. YOU need to start the con- versation and be honest, open, and respectful. Don't make it a lecture, involve your child by lis- tening to what they think. We have a list of questions at Family Planning that kids have reported that they would like to discuss. Feel free to stop in and review the list. 3. Supervise and monitor your children and adolescents. Make rules, curfews, and standards of expected behavior. Where are our children from the time school is out until you get home? Do they know what you expect from them? 4. Know your children's friends and their families. It is easier if the parents of your children's friends have the same values as you do. If they don't hold your values, you need to let those fami- lies know what you expect from your child. 5. Discourage early, frequent, and steady dating. Dating one-on- one much before the age of 16 can lead to trouble. Allow your teens to go out and have fun, but group activities are safer. 6. Take a strong stand against your daughter dating a boy sig- nificantly older than she is. Don't allow your to develop an in- tense relationship with a girl much younger that he is. 7. Help your teenagers to have options for the future that are more attractive than early preg- nancy and parenthood. You can help them set meaningful obtain- able goals. You can accomplish this by talking to them about their dreams such as what they want to be and what they expect from their lives. Then take steps to help them achieve those dreams. 8. Let your kids know that you value eduction. Encourage them to take school seriously and set high standards and expectations for them. Keep track of their grades and progress in school and discuss this with them. 9. Know what your kids are watching, reading, and listening to. Often what they are Listening to gives messages different from yours. You need to listen and be aware of the content and discuss it with them. They need to know that you do not agree with cer- tain things. 10. These first nine tips for help- ing your children avoid teen preg- nancy work best when they oc- cur as part of strong, close rela- tionships with your children that are built from an early age. Strive for a relationship that is warm in tone, i'UTn in discipline, and rich in communication and one that emphasizes mutual trust and re- spect. There is no single way to create such relationships, but the following habits of the heart can help. Express love and affection clearly and often. Hug your children. Tell them how much they mean to you. Listen. Spend time with them. Be supportive and interested in what interests them. Be courteous and respectful to your children. Help them to build self-esteem. Have meals together as a fam- ily as often as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Crook County Family Planning at 283-1142.
