Question: As a brand new single father…

(from 30 June 2012)

This was a question Jess received via Facebook:

Q. As a brand-new single father to a teen boy, I sure hope you’re not going to encourage kids to have sex. (I am in no way interested in being a grandparent at 45!)

Jess: Nope, the tone is decidedly balanced/educational (there is no good reason to “encourage” kids to have sex — at the same time, it is unrealistic to expect teens to be “abstinent”). The aim of Teen Guide to Sex and Relationships was to provide comprehensive and honest advice and facts, for teenagers to make a well-informed and educated decision with regards to love and relationships :)
