Adolescent years can be so confusing. Teenagers are often exposed to so much information. Changes in their body structure and functionality. They are inundated with different and often conflicting ideologies along with peer pressure. It is a critical time in their lives. They are not toddlers but not adults either. While attending educational institutions up them develop the knowledge to be productive on the workforce, it is important that parents or guardians help maintain the moral compass for their teens.“Why Wait?” is a pamphlet published by Rose Publishing to aid parents in having a healthy discussion about sex and abstinence. While the pamphlet is only ten pages in length of actual content, it provides biblical reasons, medical facts, emotional effects, and exams the matter of safe sex. Additionally, a checklist is provided for suggestion on how to remain abstinent. There is a Quick Medical facts chart that identifies the top 7 STDs and how they are transmitted. It also addresses how to obtain a fresh start if one has giving their virginity away.After reviewing the pamphlet, I believe this would be great for any parent or guardian looking for a way to discuss sex with their teen. Or it could be utilize as a small group discussion with leader to answer any additional questions or concerns.
As a mother of teenagers, I am impressed by this pamphlet and it's approach to abstinence. Our school district puts out very weak literature that simply says, "Don't do it if your family disapproves." But this pamphlet gives well-reasoned arguments. In addition to the religious reasons for abstinence, there are twelve reasons from medical and psychological sources (including the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the American Psychological Assoc., and the Kaiser Family Foundation).High schoolers are intelligent people and can be convinced based on statistics and facts that abstinence before marriage is the way to being a better, stronger, more responsible, and more mature person. They may not be aware of the empirical evidence that early sexual experience often leads to low self-esteem, fear, regret, insecurity, unhealthy dependencies, and stunted emotional growth... not to mention exposure to the numerous incurable sexually transmitted diseases.
