Sex and drugs in MIDDLE school?

August 26th, 2011 | Posted in Mind+Body+Soul by

Happy Friday,

ABC news recently did a special where they followed around MIDDLE school students to document what kind of pressures they are facing when it comes to sex and drugs.

You can read all about it here, but I wanted to give you a few highlights from the article:

Anya Alvarez, a 13-year-old girl from Tulsa, Okla., agreed to record a video diary for 20/20. In it, she describes her transition from childhood to adolescence. “When I was 5,” Anya said, “it was like, ‘Should I give him a toy or not? Now, it’s should I smoke weed? Should I have sex? Should I lie to my parents?”

Students told us that some kids are having sex in school bathrooms and hallways — even in classrooms.

At a middle school outside Baltimore, Md., a couple of 12-year-olds had oral sex in their science class. Their classmates watched, but the teacher didn’t see them. (The teacher was suspended and later resigned.)

And the kids say it happens at home too, and parents almost never know.

We’re talking about GOOD kids here! Kids from affluent and middle-class backgrounds whose parents are involved in their lives.  Yet the temptation and pressure to do adult things still exists and it’s causing our kids to engage in risky behavior earlier than ever before!

That’s why I can’t encourage you enough to join me on September 8th at 6pm Pacific – 9pm Eastern for a f’ree teleclass I am hosting entitled, “ESCAPE- 6 Steps to Preparing Girls for Success, Health and Happiness and Avoiding Teen Crisis”.

On this call, you will learn proven techniques and strategies that you can implement at ANY age (and honestly, the younger the better), to help your daughter feel secure and confident enough to make good choices when these pressures arise in life.

You will also learn about other “modern life” dangers that you may not be aware of (let’s face it,  A LOT has chanced since we were kids!) and how to ensure you are doing everything within your power to groom your little girl for success.

Sound interesting?

You can get all of the details now by visiting this page. There is no charge to attend and we’ll even send you a MP3 recording if you can’t make the call live for whatever reason.

So go ahead, get registered here and mark off September 8th at 6pm Pacific – 9pm Eastern on your calendar.  Whether you have a toddler, an adolescent, a tween or teen, this is life-changing information that you won’t want to miss!

To your family’s happiness,
