Why are teens being sexually active if we are being educated about it more than those in the past?
THE FOLLOWING POST IS ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD. I WAS 14 AT THE TIME. THE FOLLOWING LINK IS MY PRESENT OPINION ABOUT THE SAME TOPIC. I AM ALMOST 18 NOW http://youthvoices.net/discussion/views-teenager-not-teacher-and-not-parent
IF YOU LIKE YOU CAN GO ON AND READ THE FOLLOWING POST AND COMPARE THE TWO. I THINK THE DIFFERENCES ARE PRETTY NOTICEABLE. HAVE A NICE DAY!
Teens nowadays are starting to become sexually active at such a young age. Some, believe it or not, at the age of 11! It angers me though to know that such young kids that should be playing with toys and stuff are starting to do adult things.
I don't know why they are doing it; is it like a game to them? Does it make them cooler to say "Oh I had sex."? Before a kid talking about sex was never heard of. They were never told about the consequences about it or were educated about it.
Why are our teens taking risks while their being educated? Is it because that we are being talked about sex that teens have decided to start doing it? Should we have been told about it? Yes we should be talked about it, but we shouldnt do it until we are at a certain age or until we are married.
I feel I can blame parents for this. They are not really on top of their children like they should be. Sometimes they are giving them too much freedom and their children are taking advantage of it. They should also give their children the confidence to go up to them with any questions they have and not tell them that sex is wrong because its not, just doing it at a young age is.
I also blame the Internet because teens can have access to porn sites or chat rooms [cyber sex, curiosity can lead to having sex]
I asked some of my friends who have been active, "Why do you do it?". And they have been giving me lame answers like oh because it feels good or because I love him or her.
At a really young age I doubt we know what love is. We're still kids. And even if we did know what love is, we dont have to have sex to love someone. Some though are pressured into having sex. we should be strong enough and smart enough to say NO. I know that some are thinking about it and doubting whether they should.
If you're doubting DONT DO IT!!!!!!! THATS YOUR CONSCIENCE TELLING YOU NOT TO DO IT!!!!! Some may think that what im saying is stupid, and that's fine with me. I can't control your actions. But those who I have made them do some thinking I'm glad! If this is how our youth is TODAY, what would become of our next generation?
