  • Title: Young People
    Descriptive info: When we talk about sexual health with young people we say it is to do with everything about them that is to do with sex and relationships and the way their body changes as they become an adult.. Young people have a right:.. To be healthy.. To be safe.. To get information and ideas of all kinds.. To confidentiality and respect for their private life.. To use services (like their GP or special clinics about sexual health) to help them stay healthy.. To have their say if a professional person is making a decision that affects them.. Who are young people?.. When we talk about young people we generally mean people who are no longer children and have started to become adults.. It s hard to define this in terms of age but in terms of sexual health it might be useful to think of children becoming young people when they have started to physically develop sexually or have reached the age of puberty and continue to be young people until they feel fully physically and emotionally developed enough to handle all the responsibility of being considered an adult.. It s important to remember that all young people are not the same and that there are  ...   homeless.. There are young people who care for other people.. Young people are at school, further education, working and unemployed.. This site is for all of you.. Young people and sexual feelings.. Young people start to have sexual feelings at around 11 or 12.. For a lot of young people, when they start to get sexual feelings nobody seems to want to talk to them about it in an open or affirming way, some parents might find it really difficult to talk about sex and sexual feelings.. This means that young people start to get the idea that sexual feelings are something to be ashamed of.. As The UN Convention on The Rights of the Child tells us, young people have a right to information on things that affect them.. Sexual feelings affect every young person very much.. If you want to talk to someone you can go along to a young person s services listed on the website and talk it over with a friendly listening ear..

Giving your child support, information and help to feel good about themselves can lessen the chances of both.. 5.. How can I encourage my teenager to talk to me?.. It s important to talk to children when they are young because teenagers often find it hard to talk to their parents or carers.. It helps if they already know that you are always ready to talk to them.. It may be that your teenager doesn t want to talk to you it doesn t mean that you re a failure as a parent.. Part of the process of growing up involves becoming independent.. Young people need privacy and a chance to make their own decisions, but to have your support when they need it.. You can help by making sure that they know where else to get advice if they do not want a discussion with you.. Remember you are not alone.. You can ask to speak to someone at your child s school.. Other parents and carers or other family members can be a support for your child.. Young peoples friends are invaluable in listening and supporting.. Sexual and other health sources of support are detailed on this website.. 6.. Any other tips?.. Children and young people notice the tone of what you say, as much as what you say.. Try not to get impatient and don t put them down.. If you don t know the information say so, but find out for later.. Be as truthful as possible myths don t help an enquiring mind.. Information..
