It is of no surprise to me regarding your outcome for the study of sex education and teen pregnancy. I think detailed and graphic sex education classes actually arouse curiosity of teenagers with regard to sex. That curiosity coupled with the current lack of discipline i.
Teens as young as 13 are now becoming sexually active. This coupled with a teenage brain that is not mature and cannot make adult decisions in the US you can't smoke until you are 18 and cannot drink until the age of 21 creates a culture of reckless behavior sexually and a maturity level not ready to handle all the strong emotional response of "caring" stable relationships that sexuality should foster between two people.
Instead teens begin a cycle of multiple transient sexual excounters with no lasting emotional ties between partners. This causes emotional pain and perpetuates the problem by the individual seeking out more sex to fill the emotional void - riskier behavior that usually ends in a unwanted teen pregnancy.
The solutions to the problem of teen pregnancy is very simple, but hard for clinicians and politicians to swallow.
Shame must be brought back by parents and guardians of teenagers. For generations, this was the number one cultural response to a unwanted teen pregnancy. Parents must get involved with their childrens lives. I just can't believe that a few hours per night and maybe the family gets together on the weekends - know what their teens do and who the child's friends are. Tax breaks for parents who decide to have one breadwinner in the family is much better than dual career households.
At least one parent is home to monitor the teens life and be there for them when they come home from school. End graphic sex education in schools. Teens should be tought the biology around sex including contraception use but any other education or issues regarding sex should be taught by the parents of the child. If a teens do get pregnant encourage adoption as a solution. The child will be raised by stable, loving parents who want the child and can provide a better life than an immature year old.
If the adoption option fails, strongly encourage marriage between the couple who concieve a child and finally if this fails, legally make sure the mother indicates who the father is so the child can be financially supported later when the father gets a job.
Hope the above helps for future studies. No competing interests 15 June
