Where to Find Resources
It’s parents that teens want to hear from most when it comes to sexual health and relationships—but often parents don’t feel totally comfortable bringing up the topic. Too frequently parents aren’t given great resources to guide or engage in those conversations, either.
The new THNK program exists for teens as much as a resource for parents. We want to give you the information and support you need to help your kids make good choices for their health and future. True Health Needs Knowledge means thinking before acting. It means knowing where to get support. It means using important skills to keep you healthy. It means knowing how to THNK. We encourage parents to use the THNK website to help discuss these topics with their kids.
Here are some additional resources that can help guide your conversations with your children. They will give you current facts and other tips in helping you support healthy decision making for you and your family.

A comprehensive sexual education program teaches that the best way to avoid STDs and unplanned pregnancy is through abstinence. But it also teaches about condoms and contraception. A comprehensive program also helps young people define values, goals, and build their interpersonal and communication skills. It has been consistently proven to delay intercourse, reduce the number of sexual partners, and increase condom and birth control use amongst those who are sexually active.
