Should I talk to my child about Birth Control?
This is a question that many parents are still asking themselves today. Some schools have been active participants on the education of Birth Control and contraception. Whether you are in favor or against the use of Birth Control it is important for the teenage son or daughter to know why you are in favor or against it. There are two very important reasons for Birth Control. One is to prevent unintended pregnancy and the other is to prevent transmittable diseases.

In simple terms it is the practice of preventing unwanted pregnancies. This is typically done with the help of contraception.
Different organizations have been created to curtail the age at which women experience their first birth and to decrease the number of births among teenagers. One of them is, ‚ÄúThe Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program‚ÄĚ run by the Office of Adolescent Health, another is ‚ÄúTitle V Abstinence Program‚ÄĚ run by the Administration Children, Youth and Families just to mention some.
