San Francisco (PRWEB) June 25, 2008
Seventeen teenage girls make a pact to get pregnant. Parents and teachers ask,''Why would they do this?''
Richard Dudum, author of What Your Mother Never Told You - A Survival Guide For Teenage Girls, thinks he knows why.
Dudum says, "Parents are too busy providing the basics for their families, shrinking budgets limit the ability of schools to educate teens about sex, and as a nation we don't talk to our kids about the consequences of sex. Only a handful of parents and schools have had the courage to face up to these issues."
These are the very issues Dudum tackles head-on in his book, What Your Mother Never Told You - A Survival Guide For Teenage Girls. The teenage survival guide includes chapters "Don't Act and Dress Like A Ho,'' ''Change Friends When It's Time'' and, ''Respect Yourself." All should have been read by the seventeen mothers-to-be.
Dudum's advice to parents of teenage girls is clear and simple. "Talk to your daughter about sex. If that's too hard, put a copy of What Your Mother Never Told You on her bed. It will give her the tools to make good decisions, decisions that define and reflect who she is and who she wants to be. The book will open the door to dialogue."
Richard Dudum is a San Francisco lawyer, musician, Realtor, summer-camp director, community leader and cancer survivor. He's been married for 26 years. ''What Your Mother Never Told You'' offers clear-sighted perspective and no-nonsense self-help advice from a father with the ability to convey tough love in a kind and supportive manner.
