"How do I handle it if I find out my teen is having sex?" "What do I say?" "What does it mean that my teen has been diagnosed with an STD?"
Dr. Overton offers a fresh perspective and medical expertise in this thoughtful, comprehensive guide. Before It's Too Late teaches parents about:
• trends in teen sexual behavior; • teen pregnancy-individual and societal impact, prevention strategies; • STDs among teens-how to stop the epidemic; • teens and abstinence-key issues; • birth control and teens-best methods; • communicating with kids about sex-being approachable.
"Dr. Overton has created this must-have resource for parents. A comprehensive, medically accurate guide that any parent, no matter the age of your child, can benefit from. This is one book you'll refer to over and over again."
Patricia Paluzzi, DrPH, CNM, President and CEO Healthy Teen Network
"When it comes to teens and sex, most headlines and reports suggest that the sky is falling. Dr. Overton's thoughtful analysis offers a different point of view-her practical advice for parents is sober not salacious; informed not inflammatory; helpful not hysterical."
Sarah S. Brown, CEO The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy
