The Power of Saying “No” to Sexual Activities Among Teens – Sure is Priceless

Published October 24th, 2019 by Tateworks LLC

Listen up parents, your teen is at that age where hormones are speaking louder than words! You’ve had the talk and now you are hoping it sticks and stands between your precious and the inevitable. Even though most parent, by now, have shared their experiences with their teens, unfortunately, that’s the issue – It’s your experiences. It is now their lives that will be dictated by their choices.

These are the years where it can be really tough keeping everyone on the same page. Fortunately, if you have been sharing the best advice and being the anchor to their experiences until now, you are in good shape. Most likely your patience, understanding, and support can really make the difference when they need it the most.

According to, American Teens Sexual and Reproductive Health statistics

In 2006-2010, the most common reason that sexually inexperienced adolescents aged 15-19 gave for not having sex was that it was “against religion or morals” (41% of females and 31% of males). The second and third most common reasons were not having found the right person and wanting to avoid pregnancy.


Helping your teenager to see more value in saying “No” for all the right reasons that include their own self-worth, self-love and waiting to make a better choice are pluses worth choosing.

The truth is sooner or later things will come to that critical point, but it should be ONLY if they have checked all the boxes that will make them “Regret-Free” in their eyes. You can always say “No” until you are really sure it’s worth it.

It is that real “Talk” with someone who truly loves and cares about them that will speak louder than the peer-pressures and social noise they can tune out. Having the right to say “No” until its right is the RIGHT CHOICE and PRICELESS Indeed!
