Have you been putting off having "the talk" with your kids? A new texting sex education program in New Mexico could beat you to it.
The New Mexico Department of Health released a new a sexual health texting service geared for teens this past week. They also offer advice for parents that are having trouble talking about this often tricky subject. The program is called the "BrdsNBz" Text Message Warm Line and according to their website, "provides confidential, factually accurate answers to sexual health questions via text message. A young person simply texts a question, and a trained health educator responds within 24 hours."
HLN's Raising America put the system to the test and analyzed the responses we recieved from those trained health educators.
