Teen pregnancy has finally become an epidemic. Preaching safe sex or encouraging teens to refrain from intercourse no longer functions in today's society. No, instead we have to resort to distributing free condoms in bathrooms etc. I also fail to comprehend the reason why teenagers are so willingly throwing their lives away. So much wasted potential that could be used to pursue goals and aspiratons. I would stress the fact that a healthy bond between child and parent should be a priority but it seems we are too far gone. morals and values need to be reviewed and the extent to which these teens go needs to be seriously dealt with. They should be told that if they want to act like an adult they need to lead the life of one. There is a better road.
