Topic E: What can prevent a happy love relation?

Now you can start informing the teenager about contraception. You should emphasize many times during the dialogues that the purpose is to secure a healthy and happy life, and that planning responsible sexual behaviour is very important for achieving this goal.

If possible invite a doctor or a health nurse to support your dialogues. Your Ministry of Health or local library may also be able to provide you with informative videos, pamphlets or books. You can look up local internet resources.
