Sexual identity and relationships
Exploring and testing sexual identity and behaviour is a normal part of adolescence, being a teen and growing up. Think back to when you were a teenager… you probably read about sex and relationships in books and magazines, discussed it with your friends and started going out with boys or girls for the first time.
The internet and mobiles have simply given young people new ways of doing this. Now, your child has access to a wide range of information on websites and blogs and through their mobile (e.g. teen helplines), as well as the chance to socialise with other teenagers on social networking websites and in chat rooms and talk to experts on forums and message boards about issues close to their heart.
