Dr. Doug Larson says talking one on one with teens seems to help the most, because regardless of how savvy we think today's generation is, when it comes to the consequences of sex, they aren't making the grade.
"With basic knowledge of simple things, sometimes they're not so far advanced. In fact, I would say they're anything but advanced and that's just sad," said Dr. Doug Larson, director of the Central Shenandoah Health District.
Larson says back in the 50's four out of every 100 teen-age girls would get pregnant out of wedlock. Now, it's more than 33 out of 100. He says it has taken decades to get us to this point and it will take us decades to get back.
