Teen pregnancy and sex
Posted by Tina Bean (+415) 11 years ago
Ok so I am a nursing student at MCC and I have to do a presentation. I chose to do it on teen sex and pregnancy. I am creating a mock questionarre....

What would you people think would be acceptable questions to ask kids in both middle school and highschool? I have a bunch already but am looking for angles I have not considered.

I am making a mock questionarre for both age groups. I am taking this seriously so please try not to post smart alek comments! Gather all of the serious questions you can muster up and give em to me!!!

Thanks so much for your help.

Do you know what the most effective birth control methods are?

Will the pill protect you from SIDs?

Are teenagers emotionally ready to have sex?

Are you under peer pressure to have sex? When you have a guy as a friend, are you friends with benefits or just friends.

do you consider anal penetration sex?

where was your first sexual encounter? where do you continue (to engage in) these activities?

why do you not use condoms? birth control?

would you get pregnant (or make them ex- holes in condoms) to keep your partner?

Directed towards middle school kids:
Do you really want to have a toddler when your 16, the age when you're trying to hang out with your friends..trying to be cool..but you're changing big ol pile poop..because your daughter/son had diarrhea and he/she is cranky because the babysitter didn't lay down your baby for a nap while you were Algebra class ?

That's STDs, Wendy.

Here's on for you. Is it a bigger sin to have sex WITH a condom vs without a condom?

For junior high, just questions about the basics--menstruation, nocturnal emissions, is it normal to have hair there and all those nasty and embarrassing physical details.

What kind of friends do you hang out with?
Are they having sex?

Do you have a curfew?

Do your parents "expect" that you will have sex before marriage?

Do you feel close to your parents?
Do you feel loved by your parents?

"How do I tell my parents I'm gay?"


Call them on the phone and say "on my way home from the bar last night I hit a small child on the sidewalk. I'm sure I did him in because there was a small foot in my grill this morning when I came to after the booze and drugs wore off. Do you think I should call the police or push my car in to the river?"

After they freak out for a few minutes tell them you where just kidding and that you are gay.

It's all just perspective.

I had a conversation with my daughter yesterday afternoon while walking down the dyke. She was talking about a girl in one of her classes that was pregnant. She went on to explain how she could not do anything and that she had lived with the dad a while and the dad had gotten another girl pregnant, I did not interrupt, she continued to tell me about the stories this girl tried to share about things her boyfriend did and how she sees nothing wrong with her situation.
I then stated..... well a least she is staying in school. I could have gone on and on about how wrong this girl was and placed the blame on her parents and everybody else in the community but I choose to try to find a positive,, emphasize it and let it go. Parents must remember children are products of their society and their society begins in the home with the parents as examples.

I've gone twenty-some years thinking my brother ran over a little kid on the way home from the bar. Now I finally hear the rest of the story.

Do they know how they feel about sex and where are their boundaries at?

If teens and pre-teens don't have boundaries set, it is easy to go too far without realizing that maybe you didn't want to after all.

SET BOUNDARIES AND STICK WITH THEM!

Then, find friends that have the same boundaries.

That's BS and you know it Gunnar - at the very least, you still have to write a 500 word essay detailing what a dirty slut you are and how you'll never have sex out of wedlock again before Rep. Stupak will agree to send you a coathanger in the color of your choice. And you'll be on the hook for postage, as well as shipping and handling.

That doesn't sound like "free" to me.

Sorry Tina to burst your bubble, but most of these questions ARE appropriate to ask 7th and 8th graders. (Apparently the girls' locker room talk is quite informative at the middle school level.)
Here's a question: Do you consider oral sex sex?
Top
Posted by Maryann McDaniel (+249) 11 years ago
Patricia: from what I have seen this is the big question especially for middle school students (we talking 11-14 years). It is scary. Fourteen-fifteen year olds are usually 9th graders, fifteen-sixteen 10th graders, etc.

Is oral sex sex?
Top
Posted by mt_mom (+122) 11 years ago
I always remind all of the people I counsel that anything you can get down there (genitals) you can get up here (mouth)....So is oral sex, sex? Yes

As a mother of a 14 year old, I have been talking to my daughter about sex since she was 9. I took her to a class put on by the County Health Department.

I have a wonderful relationship with my daughter and have told her she can talk to me about anything. I agree that our children are a product of the home and creating a comfortable enviroment for them to talk to their parents is important. If not their parent then someone they feel comfortable talking with.

My questions: Do you know what happens when you have sex? Do you know what lipstick parties are? Are you mature enough to handle the ramifications after you have sex? If you split apart for a while, no cell phone, no public places, are you still going to feel the same way about each other when you find out your boyfriend/girlfriend has dumped you for someone else? Are you prepared to take care of a baby when you yourself are just a child too?

We were that age once too and relating our experiences to our children makes them more aware of reality.

The best website I had when I was growing up was gURL.com

They have advice columns, sex edu, message boards. It's great.
