    • The population that is most affected by this epidemic is adolescents 15 -19 years of age and young adults.

    The current crisis of Sexually transmitted disease affecting adolescents and young adults.
    The present reality of single parent homes and at-risk behaviors.
    The advantages of a two parent household vs. the disadvantages of a single parent household
    A look at what to expect in the future if the current trend continues
  • Sexual Revolution
    The 1960s and 1970 were considered the sexual revolution era.
    Teens attitude and behavior became more liberal
    Teens began to engage in premarital sex at an increased rate
    Teen became sexually active six months prior than their parents.
  • Currently STDs Status
    In the United States , the risk of acquiring an STDs is higher among teenagers than adults.
    Rates of unprotected sexual activity, STDs, unplanned pregnancies, and childbearing is highest among U.S adolescents.
    Many adolescents are engaging in oral sex, and is unaware of the risk of contracting STDs orally.
  • Experts Look For Solutions
    Bridging the gap between programs and research
    Experts suggested that research on prevention should be designed and conducted to inform the development of programs and policy.
    Experts conclude that teens reared in a traditional family structure are less likely to engage in at-risk behaviors
    Religion seems to play a vital role in deterring teens from at-risk behaviors.
  • Lost Of Family Structure
    The present reality
    Back to the beginning
  • Single Parent households
    Single parent homes
    Experts concluded that single parent homes were worse off than their counterpart
    a third of single parent homes rose from 13 percent in 1960 to double the amount in 1990.
    Families that had children represented 19 percent; which consisted of an employed father and a stay at home mother.
    Poverty: such as living off of one paycheck
    Lack of nurturing, due to the only parent working and spending less time with child.
    Children reared in these types of homes generally display at-risk behaviors.
  • The Advantages of a two parent homes Vs. Single-parent homes
    Two Parent Household
    Single Parent Household
    Economically beneficial; kids are living in a stable home
    Children are more than likely to be nurture due to one parent staying home.
    Kids raised in a two parent home are less like to engage in at-risk behaviors.
    A possibility that single parent is a teenager which places the child at risk to live in poverty.
    Possibility of not receiving nurturing due to the one parent working
    More than likely to engage in at-risk behaviors such as drug use, sexual activity, cigarettes and alcohol.
  • Changes over time
    In the 1950 the High School seniors of that era believed that having premarital sex was not permitted until marriage.
    The classes of 1975 and 2000 believed that premarital sex was allowed if both people were in a serious relationship
    In the 1950 few teens engaged in premarital sex based on the negative view.
    In the 1960s and beyond the attitude changed and teenage sex rates went up significantly and so did STDs and teenage pregnancy.
    Based on the findings of this research it appears that the traditional structural of the American family proved beneficial in curtailing adolescent at-risk behaviors. In addition, the lack of morality has caused adolescent sexual activity to increase due to the lack of restraint. Based on the continuing crisis of STDs it appears that the current sex education courses taught in America’s school is merely instructing teens how to have sex and not get diseases or get pregnant. It seems evident that the best course of action would be to empower teens to wait until marriage to engage in sexual activity and also build self esteem to insure that teens learn how to build better relationships to ensure fidelity and longevity of marriage.
