Teenage Pregnancy Awareness


Dr. Roger McIntire

"Mom, I think I have a problem."

We all hope this problem turns out to be simple and not too serious—maybe a tough homework assignment or a fellow student with bad social skills. We hope it is not the forever life-changing announcement. But you might have a moment of fear since May is Teen Pregnancy Month.

How should a parent talk to his or her teen about this sensitive subject? Avoiding the topic and withholding information will not postpone the risks. "If I don't know how to do it safely, I won't do it" is not  a popular teenage motto.

A conversation too short, too fast or with too many family members chiming in is not likely to help. Pick a good time when you can go slow with time to listen in a one-on–one situation.

Make sure your teen gets the facts straight . One teenaged girl told me, “I want to be safe. If I have sex, I always take one of Mom’s pills the next day.” Your daughter has a 1 in 20 chance of becoming pregnant, and both sons and daughters are at three times that risk for sexually transmitted diseases. This is not just a "girl problem."

Before you talk with your teen, a little self-inspection is in order. What do you want to say to your son about his responsibilities in a relationship? What message does he get in the non-serious moments about his attitude toward women and sex? What do you want to say about contraceptives? Abortion? At what age do you want to bring these topics up?

Fathers who cause teen pregnancies are usually long out of high school, so caution your teenager daughter about these not-quite-adults and supervise your 18-and-something son on this temptation.

Alcohol is the most common excuse young women give for making the big mistake. What attitudes should a parent model on this subject?

Starting the Conversation

When it's time to get serious, keep these listening skills in mind:

1) Keep your pace of conversation slow.

2) Reserve your answers and advice until your teen has a chance to express his/her opinion. Before you give all your guidance, you need to learn what they know, or think they know.

3) Remember that one session on this topic will not be enough , so conclusions and the "You should...," "Don't ever...," and "Be careful not to..." don't have to be said in the first conversation.

Take your time on this subject, it may be the most important part of your influence on your son's or daughter's future. The New York Times reported last week that the introduction of the pill in the 50’s did not reduce dangerous sexual habits as was first predicted. National rates of teen pregnancies, births, and abortions did not peak in the 50’s but continued upward until the 90’s. Even now West Virginia averages 60 teenage girls per week who have babies.

The pregnancy rate is actually higher than that because many pregnancies...
