I was hoping to blog about my tour in Neff’s Canyon on Saturday, but the weekend ended up being consumed by my daughter’s science project and the Super Bowl, so I haven’t even looked at the photos yet. I’m hoping they’ll do something to rescue this blog from the doldrums of no good skiing it’s been languishing in. But for today, all I’ve got is a little sarcasm.
As a parent, sex education is a challenging topic. Sure, I’d love to teach my kids that abstinence is the way to go until age 30, but I don’t think they’d believe me. The importance of being realistic hits home when one considers teen pregnancy rates in communities that tend to teach abstinence only. Especially when they start defining abstinence in funny ways. Besides, there are documented cases where abstinence didn’t work.
