No parent wants to hear this: Your teenager is having sex. Yet, sadly, more and more teenagers are having sex. And they are having it at a younger age, which means they are even less prepared for it.
Only the most naive parents think that their children are going to tell them about their sex lives. I’m not saying that there aren’t any teens that do tell them, but they’re extremely rare. So, it comes at a surprise when parents finally learn, usually through someone else (or through smartphone monitoring software), that their little babies are having sex.
And that doesn’t end the problem, since the teenager is going to deny it. In fact, the most probable thing that will happen is that they will act offended, and tell the parent that it’s not their business, that it’s their lives and things like that.
But it is your business. If your child gets pregnant or gets someone pregnant, you’re the one that’s going to end up paying the bills and probably taking care of the baby, because after all, how can a child take care of a baby?
And if that weren’t enough, there are STDs to worry about too. The three most common ones are:
Forget about AIDS. Chlamydia is the most common venereal disease among teenagers. Up to 40% of teens who have sex have it. It can lead to sterility in both boys and girls and it’s hard to detect because it shows no symptoms.
Human Papilloma Virus
You’ve probably heard this one. 15% of sexually active teens have it, and if untreated, it can lead to cervical cancer in girls.
There is not permanent cure for these, as even after being surgically removed, they often grow back. This is one of the diseases that teenagers will try the hardest to keep secret from their parents because of the stigma associated with it.
Those are not all the venereal diseases that exist, there are many others, like AIDS, gonorrhea, herpes, etc. Most of them are silent and they all have long-term consequences.
That’s why you can’t take any chances. With smart phone monitoring software, you can discover if your child is having sex, with whom, where, at what time, and how. Yes, the program allows you to discover if your child has any of these diseases, but prevention is the key.
