Sadly many teenagers in rural communities are educated but choose to get pregnant. They want to live on welfare because that's how they grew up. I've seen this happen where the teen's parents are actually happy about it. It's a sad cycle with no change in sight.

The right information about sex and proper sex education for teenagers are important. Because teenage is a crucial period in the stages of life. It’s a transitional period between childhood and adulthood. In teenage period, teenagers start to learn about things related to sex. If parents do not give the proper sex education, the teenagers may learn it from other sources like the internet or videos which may mislead them.

True, which is often a reflection of conservative values, bad parenting, poverty, drug addiction, abuse or any number of other social ills. It's all a big tangled mess, isn't it?
