Our children live in a highly sexualized society where they are exposed to sexual language, images, and behaviors before they are developmentally prepared to handle them. Kids didn’t “ask” for hormones at age 12, but they are stuck learning how to handle their changing bodies and urges in a society that shows them “yes” but tells them “not now.”
If you or your children have questions about sexuality or their changing bodies, talk to your Annapolis Pediatrics provider. Our providers talk to hundreds of teens each month - we are here for you for these important conversations.
