Adolescent Sexuality and Childbearing: A Different Perspective.
Bruce, John Allen
After a number of years of study by many experts, adolescent sexual intercourse, pregnancy, and childbearing have continued to elude understanding and control. Orthodox students and clinicians have studiously avoided the moral dimensions of such behavior, in spite of the social reality of values and expectations that reject precocious sexuality. Adults must take responsibility for the moral tenor of our society; adolescents should not be subsidized, emotionally or financially, for rejecting these expectations; and counseling and educational strategies should consider the potential contribution of high expectations for adolescent responsibility and personal honor, leading to higher self-esteem and more disciplined sexual expression.
