Ok so I think there should be a thing on this site for parents telling them that teens having sex is realistic in this day and age and just how to talk with there teens/kids.

We have a couple pieces for parents here, but they're very basic because what we do is provide sex information and education for young adults, rather than providing parent education, which is its own huge subject.

Alas, we can't do everything! [Smile]

Our page for parents, which includes some links for the and a list of books, is here (and linked at the bottom of every page on the main website): http://www.scarleteen.com/for_parents

(You might also want to know than over the last 100 years, little has actually changed when it's comes to teenagers and young adults being sexually active. In fact, statistically speaking, most young people in this generation are having sex later than those of the previous two generations. So, this actually isn't news to many parents.)
