A note for teenage girls.

Teenagers, youth, sex education, teenage mothers, education.

Please share with every young girl you know.

Lets give our girls back their youth.
Young girls should enjoy their teenage years without being ladled with ‘adult matters.’

I am often saddened when a teenager walks into my consulting room requesting an abortion or suffering from depression as a result of boy/girl/relationship traumas.

Lets encourage our girls to aspire to more in life.
Motivate them to get a good education.
Inspire them to aim for more and not settle for a life of regrets and ‘I wish I had listened.’

How do I protect my teenage child from HIV?

Your teenager knows about Twilight, The Hunger Games, Big Bang Theory and ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!’
But do they know this: MORE THAN 10% OF THOSE NEWLY DIAGNOSED WITH HIV IN THE UK ARE UNDER 25.

Of those newly diagnosed with HIV in UK, over 10% were under 25 years.

Do they know about the dangers of HIV, Chlamydia and unplanned pregnancies? Are they aware enough to avoid them?
I’m assuming that the word ‘abstinence’ doesn’t feature in their texts…..
So, if you want to protect your teenage children, please get them to watch this video!!
 1. Are your teens well informed about the dangers of HIV and STIs?
2. What more should parents, schools and the NHS do to get this information to them?
