This is a curious thing, and one wonders how we got to this point. In fact, I think most parents would be upset with schools if they did try to do that, and for good reason.
It seems to me that we don’t need to convince parents that they matter in areas like education or in developing good eating habits or any of a number of other issues.

The second option seems to be, “If I just sit them down and talk to them about the birds and the bees, then I will have done what I’m supposed to do.” And of course, neither one of those options is a good one.

Yet the majority of these teens, 60 percent overall and 67 percent among younger adolescents, regret their first experience and wish they had waited longer. Teen Sexual Activity and Outcomes Early sexual activity is associated with a host of negative outcomes that can have lasting physical, emotional, social, and economic impacts on the lives of young people, particularly teenage girls and young women. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in four teenage girls has at least one sexually transmitted infection (STI). Teenage girls, especially, are physiologically vulnerable to these infections, and early sexual activity increases the risk of infection.
One study found that those who begin sexual activity at age 13 are twice as likely to become infected as peers who remain sexually abstinent throughout their teen years. Teen Pregnancy and Unwed Childbearing.
