Great resource for adolescents

Sex ed is vital! Adolescents need the information, but embarrassment is a major barrier. This website virtually eliminates the embarrassment factor. Let your youth (and yourself!) scroll through and read till all the questions are answered. Your child's health will BENEFIT and you should be ALL ABOUT THAT.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1):

Although it has fewer interactive features than its sister site Young Women's Health, YOUNG MEN'S HEALTH takes the same straightforward approach to educating teens about physical, emotional, and sexual health. A project of Children's Hospital Boston, the site encourages teen and preteen boys to read up on health issues ranging from asthma to STD prevention -- and to seek help when they need it. The guides are clear and comprehensive, recognizing that positive relationships, communication, and self-esteem are just as important as good nutrition and regular checkups when it comes to young men's health.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
