background
Background
  • “Who are virgins?” asks an 8-year old
  • Exposure – to media, peers, etc.; and the thirst for knowledge of children and youth
  • The challenge to parents – being there, trying to understand the basis of these questions, clarifying things (that may not be very clear to the parents!), getting informed and equipped

WHAT IS ABC?
  • Abstinence - simply means that sexual activity is completely cut out of the menu
  • Being faithful – sexual faithfulness for married or co-habiting couples
  • Condoms - for couples where one spouse is positive and the other negative; and for someone not married and cannot abstain from sex

conclusion
CONCLUSION
  • ABC, in that order has worked quite well for this country that we do not need to reorganize the order of the model
    • Abstinence therefore has to be pushed as the default position
    • Young people, especially, need to be reminded that they have the right and the will to say no to sex before marriage
    • There is no need to have a running battle within the ABC model between Abstinence and Condoms. The pecking order should be left as simple as ABC!
