If your son or daughter is sexually active they run the risk of be- coming pregnant or contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Encourage them to talk to you. Try not to be judgmental; present them with the facts. While the only definite way not to contract an STD or become pregnant is abstinence, if they do choose to be sexually active encourage responsibility and protec- tion for both themselves and their partner.
Birth control methods are only effective if used consistently, properly, and ac- cording to directions.
