Teens and Sexual Health
Ms. Boerner did a great job with difficult issues - access to the Internet, the need for information, and the schizophrenia of our public policy. I loved her characterization of parents in the 21st century - our struggle between being open, honest, and fearful for our children's health and safety. There were also voices of teen girls in the story, giving the article credibility and an immediacy that should not be ignored. Our kids are at risk, but there are things we can do to protect them - including providing them with access to the new HPV vaccine.
