Don't Be a Sex Ed Horror Story — Keep the VD Out of Valentine's Day
Date:2/9/2010

TeezITNow.com is encouraging parents to use this Valentine's Day as an opportunity to give their teens a gift of knowledge and empowerment, because when romance heats up, teens often find themselves under pressure to give in to sex.

New York (PRWEB) February 9, 2010 -- As a parent, having 'The Talk' is probably one of the most difficult and challenging moments of parenthood.

In addition to the initial Talk, Moore recommends having frequent conversations about the importance of using condoms to prevent the spread of STDs, AIDS and unwanted pregnancy are equally as important. "It is vital to make sure teens know about safety, whether
