BEST GIFT FOR A TEENAGER - 1998
For a nominal honorarium (determined by the client), one of the two sexuality educators at Planned Parenthood will sit down with three or more teens and answer all those questions you'd never ask Mom or Dad. They cover the old standards such as how to avoid disease and pregnancy, but also help teens--and, for that matter, adults--approach issues relating to sexual orientation, body awareness, and how and when to say yes or no. If you can't marshal three kids, Planned Parenthood will design a session for parents or help them navigate its vast stock of reference materials covering everything from menopause to deciding what information is appropriate for kids of what age. They also offer a "parent pack"; call and ask 'em about it.
