Advices to Teens on Peer Pressure and Sex


Here are some tips on giving advices to teen on peer pressure and sex. Help your teen understand the aspects of peer pressure related to sex.


This can be a tricky situation. Parents have so many cautions in their mind when it comes to peer pressure and sex that they often are not sure on what exactly are the factors to focus on. They also commit the error of burdening so much of to-dos and not-to-dos that the teen gets overwhelmed and somewhat insecure. So first it is for the parents to decide on the exact issues that they would want their teen to be careful about regarding peer pressure and sex. The presence of peer pressure and sex must be acknowledged first. Do not live in a false idea that my child is far away from such ‘bad guys’ and he will not get himself into it as he is very ‘good’. The very notion of bad guys and being good has changed dramatically over the years. Today, it is not bad to explore and experiment and it is neither good to be living in isolation. So, make sure that the teen is well aware of the aspects of peer pressure related to sex and above all, what are the factors that must be kept in mind.


Help the teen understand terms like unprotected sex and sexual assault

These are serious issues that you need to discuss with your child. During the developmental stage when the teen is getting to know and experience a variety of emotions due to the hormonal changes in the body, you need to make sure that the child makes informed choices. Have a frank discussion with him about the physiological changes and what they imply. Be casual and scientific in your approach. Answer their queries and clear their doubts and confusions if they are harbouring any ideas.

You will notice a marked change in their outlook once they get the right answers to all their doubts and queries related to the body. Help them understand that the changes in the body and mind that they are experiencing is very natural and nothing to be ashamed about.

Help the teen understand that there can be situations where they need to deal and battle pressure to get sexually active. It is up to them on how they deal with it.


Help in the building of will power

After equipping them with adequate information, the next step is to help them build the right attitude. Developing and building will power is vital. Restraint comes from will power. Help them understand that the pressure and allure might be many, but ultimately it is their choice on what decision they take. After all, it is their life and they need to be responsible and accountable for their action. Explain it out that sex is a pleasurable activity, but at the same time it renders strong impact on the psychological set up of the mind. Forced and underage sex can be harmful to the mind as well as the body. Help them understand that they need to be aware as well as mature enough to deal with it.

Instil a set of values that they will relate to and this will simultaneously help them choose the right peer group that has a positive influence.

Finally, you also need to ensure that the teen is growing up in a positive environment. Help him develop hobbies that are educative and encourage him to engage in activities that are exciting as well as beneficial for the body and mind. Regular physical exercises and sports are a great way to put those rushes of adrenalin to good use! It has been found that more the child in engaged in regular activities that uses up his energy, the lesser are the chances of him/her to get involved in thoughts and ideas of sexual fantasy that borders on potential risky behaviour. Last but not the least, be a friendly parent and not a preacher to your teen. You will find yourself in a better position to communicate and put your thoughts across, and also sense the danger signal that you need to take steps to correct.

Sex education must be made compulsory in school so that kids know the basics of safe sex. Counselling sessions should also be made available for students.
