What teens need: 1 a good sex education!. So you know all consequencies of what you do or you would do. You really dont have to start becoming sexually active at early age. You will not miss anything much. In fact you gain more- self respect, better health, good sleep and focus more on your study. That what teens need. 2. Hpv vaccination for boys and girls - teens age up to 26.
