Austin Study of Teens and Parents on Sex

Those who know me know that I love sex. I admit it, but what I also love is programs like Austin LifeGuard that serve as a resource for teens and parents of teens who need help dealing with the facts about sex, especially teen sex. Today, Austin LifeGuard released select data from a study of Austin teenagers and parents of teenagers on the subject of sex. The results reveal a huge gap between the views of parents and teens. Nothing new, I guess, but parents are really off the mark when it comes to understanding the attitudes and behaviors of their teens. Amanda Brown, director of Austin LifeGuard, spoke about the survey today, and Austin's Fox 7 News covered the story.
