Teen boys and sexual activity is a really tough question. Their hormones are going crazy. I think that one of the things that happens when they realize that anything is possible. They think they are indestructible, as teenage boys. If sexual activity does occur, that babies can happen. Once they understand that, and babies are here, you can't put them back. I think for boys to understand that is a really important avenue. Also understanding what it means to be a parent, once that occurs, and how difficult that is. Teenage boys don't think about consequences all the time, so you have to remind them that sexual activities have consequences. I think you run a risk of them fighting you. Go through all the risks, I think they will re-evaluate things and hopefully, begin to think about things.
