Teen Sex Life and its Effects
Young Love is TenderClick thumbnail to view full-size
Parents should never depend only on Sex Education in our children’s schools. We are our children’s first teachers and the first lessons start at home.
Teenage girls are most affected in early sexual activity. No righteous parent(s) would want their daughter's budding life and future be ruined by careless pregnancy, unskilled responsibilities, unwanted abortion, injury to family honour and self-respect.

7 Effects of Teen Sex on Mind and Body
- Anxiety - When trust is broken towards the partner, the effects of anxiety can be dangerous. There is doubt, fear, tension, loss of appetite and could lead to depression and delinquent behaviour. Anxiety, stress and depression are the three evil moods that push a teen to conclude its life by a suicidal attempt if help comes too late. Elopement is not a strange thing either; it's the product of over-strict rules sparking conflict between parents and child.
- Stress - When stress is developed by constant nervousness, distress and worries of a young unhealthy relationship, it becomes a major emotional problem. Teens withdraw to social activities of being around friends or having friends. They become anti-social and get involved between a petty mistake and bigger crimes. Stress is also stressed out if there is that conflict of approval towards the young love relationship that would involve a parents' decision from either side such as a history of family issues, social competition, religion, financial status (insecurities and conflict between the rich and the poor).
- Mental Weakness - Parents express to their children only the best of dreams for their young lives. Early teen sexual activities could taint and damage the hopes and dreams of finishing their valuable education to prepare them for their future. School presence (missing classes and activities), class participation (day dreams in another world), doing what is prohibited and breaking school rules, and the loss of trust to education (the eagerness to work, to earn and to be able to spend for one another forgetting about the importance of studies).
- Unpreparedness and Low-Self Esteem - Accidents happen because of ignorance, the neglect of proper discipline and the refusal of obedience. Unwanted pregnancy, unreadiness to act on mature responsibilities and denial to respond in the acceptance of its present reality do lead to the loss of love and trust towards family and the deficiency to appreciate self. Even the teen boy would feel that he has become a "failure".
- Love is Play - There is the lack of respect for oneself, one's life and the annoying pride of one's alter ego. It is easy and a common act for teens who demonstrate young love like they are acting a play. The role to keeping love secure, important and giving it care becomes casually lifeless in the form of comedy. It is becoming a fun thing to see and hurt others, play with sex on others that they do not give a care at all, and run from obligations because in the first place, it was just merely "love at play".
- Frightful Truth - Young immature love stays in the memory banks of the unprepared teens. By the time they become better individuals to produce and settle down to raise a family, they are still scarred all their lives of their young sexual behaviour in the past. It will haunt and fright them as parents to their very own young teens that their past irresponsible selves would mirror towards their children. It is good if these parents then could tell their teens- "Been there, done that. Don't do it."

What Parents and Guardians Can Do to Guard Early Teenage Mishap
- Private “Safe Sex” Talk. Talk to your teen in private and in its most convenient time. A perfect timing could get your teen’s attention to listen. They will find it more uncomfortable and weird than you might feel, but it is always worth it.
- Spell It Out. First education starts from you, at home. Teach your teen the importance of safe sex in their early stage of puberty. It is part of the special upbringing to teach and share with them our wisdom and knowledge for the purpose of caution and preparedness. Share your thoughts about the importance of sex, its limitations at this stage and the respect for it so your child will know the difference and be aware of its consequences turning sex education a better healthy attitude toward sex.
- Offer Your Love. Our children need reassurance from us for their security. Talking and educating your teen is not enough. As a parent or guardian, your child needs to be guided through and supervised with love and care from you, not from strangers. Children have to know that their parents care for their well-being. Let them understand about good discipline and helpful lessons. Encourage your teen to be in his/her circle of good friends where “going-steady” is not in their "only" agenda. Dating stage is fine unless your child is at least 16 years old making sure you know where your child is going and who your child is dating.
- Give Your Shield. Lend your shield to protect your teen from harm against the temptations away from home. Bad habits do not necessarily start from your child. These bad habits come to search and lure our children and they could easily be tempted. Again, give them a better understanding of the damaging effects cigarettes, alcohol and drugs can do to their young life. Shelter your child with your guidance, supervision and vigilant check-ups.
- Be the Light. Encourage your teen to look and face towards the bright light always. Assure your child that you will always be available in times of a private talk. Put yourself as a saviour to their problems, the solution to their questions. Encourage your children to talk and share to you avoiding secrets of any of their problems. Parents or guardians should initially encourage a healthy relationship through bonding.
