It does boil down to the fact that we are not teaching the dangers of sex to kids. Safe sex is preached and condoms handed out, but until kids are taught the effects of HIV/AIDS and really made aware of how many STDs are with you for life I don't see a lot changing. Parents need to quit relying on the school systems to educate their kids about sex and STDs and take responsibility for making sure their kids have the facts and can made informed decisions, even into the tween years.
