Drinking and Risky Sexual Behavior Among Adolescents
Drinking and risky sexual behavior among adolescents is a very common problem. The two issues, drinking and risky sexual behavior, go hand in hand for many adolescents. Many teens experiment with drinking, whether due to peer pressure, curiosity, rebellion, easy access or some other reason. For some lucky teens, this is an unacceptable behavior that nevertheless will not lead to dire results. For many other troubled adolescents, drinking will lead to serious consequences such as those entailed by risky sexual behavior. Risky sexual behavior often occurs when adolescents have been drinking, due to the fact that alcohol has a tendency to reduce inhibitions and impair judgement. TTS can help troubled girls dealing with issues related to drinking and risky sexual behavior.
The Unfortunate Realities of Adolescent Drinking and Risky Sexual Behavior
Many parents know that adolescent drinking is an unfortunate rite of passage for some teens. We can hope that our teens will abstain, but for many troubled girls that will not be the case. Drinking and risky sexual behavior among adolescents is a behavior that can go unnoticed by parents. That is why we must first try to encourage the development of positive values in our adolescent children. But that is not enough, because we must also then maintain open and communicative relationships with our teens in order to know what is going on in their lives.
