It is hard for some parents to let their teen get confidential care. Some of them say to me, “I should know what is going on with my kid. If my teen is having sex, I should know about it.” What if your teen could not get confidential care and ended up being afraid to ask for birth control or get condoms? They would probably still have sex and may get pregnant or get an STD. What’s worse? A pregnant teen perhaps with an STD, or one with confidential care and access to birth control and condoms? You pick.
