Neighborhood Scout contains condition alerts to highlight conditions that are extreme, whether good or bad.
A review of the research says it’s time to get started.
The Internet is a virtual cornucopia of information about sex, from porn websites to videos created by comedian John Oliver; from young-adult literature to movies that can be blushingly explicit.
“There’s so much that’s sex based that the kids have access to,” said Michelle Delin, a single mom to two teens, a boy and a girl. Things are vulgar and one-dimensional.” But Widman said parents really do matter.
Census tracts usually have 4,000 persons, but can range between 1,500 and 8,000 persons.
This is the most fine-grained area for which detailed information is made available from the government, to protect the individual privacy of each of us.
If there was not a name available, we named the census tract by the largest street intersection in the census tract (e.g., Worcester, MA (Lincoln St/Plantation St) Zip codes were developed by the Postal Service for the purpose of delivering mail, but were never intended to define coherent neighborhoods.
In addition, Zip Codes can have as many as 10 distinctly different census tracts contained within them.
The result is that potentially great matching neighborhoods can be missed, and erroneous matches can also be produced and delivered to you.
When, as a teenager, Anu Kumar’s mother wanted to have “the talk” with her, she sent her brother and father out of the house before sitting down to stammer out a few words about sex.
“That was the only time we talked about it,” Kumar said of her mother, a South Asian academic who was teaching in Utah. I mean, I come from India, no one talks about this stuff in India.
If you are an adult of a certain age, you remember how it went: A parent clearing their throat repeatedly, talking in metaphors, referring you to a book.
Maybe when it was over, you were even more confused than before.For her to sit me down and have that discussion was big.” Kumar, on the other hand, has been talking to her kids, a 19-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter, since they were toddlers. She’s just published a study in JAMA Pediatrics showing that parents talking to their kids really matters. adolescents who talk to their parents about sexual-health topics are more likely to use contraception and condoms than teens who didn’t have those conversations,” Widman said.
