Chris Bryant, Labour MP for Rhondda in Wales, today launched teenagemothers.org.uk a website that provides the opportunity for visitors to vote on key issues relating to young people, sex and relationships, including whether sex and relationships education should be statutory. I urge you to visit his site and vote.
It is always helpful when there is a fresh voice in the ongoing discussion about youth sexuality and teenage pregnancy - on this occassion there has been a focus on Chris' recommendation that a leaflet should be sent to parents of 11 or 9 year olds depending on what you read. If you are a parent, grandparent, a (real or pretend) aunt or uncle or a sibling there are already booklets available to help you.
Visit the Parentline Plus website at www.parentlineplus.org.uk or fpa at www.fpa.org.uk
Both have some very useful advice and support.
