“Girls need to feel good about themselves before they start to date,” says Charles Wibbelsman, MD, chief of adolescent medicine at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco.
His advice: only date if you know yourself and know you want to date.
Making your opinion known can deter to your teen from becoming sexually active.
Before we dated, we talked about what was right and wrong in a relationship, and we decided there would be no sex. However, we talk dirty to each other in text messages (never in person). It's wonderful that you and your boyfriend have had an honest talk about sex and are trying to be serious about your commitment to no sex.
But that's why I'm confused about the sexting.
