Teens

Welcome to the teens section of our website. We want to help you make good decisions regarding relationships and sex. We know that it can be difficult to figure out what to do, so we have some resources and ideas to help you make decisions.

Decisions about sex and dating can be complex and serious. For many teens, one of the best resources available to you is your parents. Whether it’s your parent or a friend’s parent, parents can just be a listening ear or they can help you figure out what options you have and what the best is for you at this time.

Here are a few community resources as well as web resources for you to consider when making the important decisions of relationships and sex.
