May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Awareness Month. Although many associate pregnancy with "the s*x talk", teen pregnancy prevention is more than this. Teen Pregnancy Prevention begins with parents talking to their children about not drinking and smoking, not doing drugs, and about learning to say no to other activities that can lead teens to engage in the early initiation of s*x.
