It is a sad state of affairs when the public accepts with a cavalier attitude the flip-flops on moral issues of candidates without questioning them in detail about their views and how they came about.
If we want to help our kids to make healthy decisions, we have to be clear about our values and about the information we give them on how to stay safe. Nowhere is this truer than those seemingly awkward conversations with teens about sex.
