The Birds and the Bees: Talking to Young Teens About Sex How did you learn about sex? My husband tells about coming home from school one day to find a book about "reproduction" (not sex) on his bed. Nothing was ever said about it. I, on the other hand, am part of a whole generation of girls who learned about menstruation and the mechanics of making and having babies from a movie shown after school "for girls only." Little was said at my house beyond some hemming and hawing about whether I should go to the film. Friends of mine learned what little they knew from friends, some of whom had more enlightened parents, but most of whom had equally ignorant friends. Is it any wonder that most of us were more than a little confused? http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-birds-and-the-bees-talking-to-young-teens-about-sex/000560 -

At-Risk Youth At-Risk.org has been compiled as a resource for parents and the general public in search of information about at-risk youth. This site will present you with information and articles about helping at-risk youth.
Over the past decade, more and more attention has been given to the issues associated with “at-risk youth” including youth crime, violence, sex, substance abuse, poor academic performance, etc. Research shows that at-risk youth struggle with complex issues and scenarios that are brought on by peers, mentors, family members, and difficult social environments. The increased complexity of today’s at-risk youth has forced parents and federal agencies to work together to find solutions. There has been growing interest in community-based efforts that help to educate and direct at-risk youth and families to a variety of helpful services. http://www.at-risk.org/ -

ChooseMyFamily.comTop Rated Creating Extended Families.com matches adults platonically to create surrogate extended family relationships. Whether an individual has no family, or is just missing one or more vital relationships in their life, a complete extended family would provide a more powerful support network. Creating Extended Families is a place where people looking for those missing relationships can find each other and connect.
Matches are intended to develop into long term family like relationships, which may include such activities as sharing holidays, providing emotional support, and having someone who cares. The service matches both intergenerationally and peer to peer. A member can search for: parent figures individually, a couple jointly as parent figures, and peer/sibling matches. A single membership allows unlimited searching and unlimited matching, so it is entirely possible to be matched with parent figures and multiple sibling figures and, thereby, create a full extended family of your choosing.
There are many ways to meet people online, but the advantage of using Creating Extended Families is that you are more likely to meet people who are looking to take a friendship and develop it into a chosen family. The service is also accessible via ChooseMyFamily.com. http://www.CreatingExtendedFamilies.com -
