It's no secret that sex is a big deal for teenagers. They think about it, they talk about it. And usually, they do it. On average, both males and females in the US and UK first have sex at 16. Which, if you're the parent of a teenager or young adult, can suddenly start to feel very real. Have you ever wondered where all those teenagers are doing it?
The college kids have headed back to their messy apartments or moved for the first time into their dorm rooms. So how are you feeling, parents? Will you miss those kids? Other than when our children are born, there's no bigger change in our lives as parents than when our children leave home. It's a shock to the system -- but there are good things about empty nesting, too.
