Teens, parents aren't on same page when talk turns to sex
from HealthDay News
When it comes to having "the talk," many teens admit they're not communicating with their parents or their doctors about sex, new research reveals. "Teens and young adults account for more STIs [sexually transmitted infections] than all other ages combined," said study co-author Dr. Kari Schneider, an assistant professor in the department of pediatrics at the University of Minnesota. "Pediatricians and parents play a vital role in discussing STIs and safer sex practices with adolescents," she added in a news release from the Pediatric Academic Societies.
