ESSENCE Poll: How Do You Determine When to Have “The Talk” With Your Child?

Talking about “the birds and the bees” is a crossroad that’s hard for both parents and children, but one that researchers say is necessary.

A study done by JAMA Pediatrics found that kids who have open conversation about sex with their parents make safer sex choices, reports TIME.

It’s important, says lead author Laura Widman. “There was a significant effect. Kids whose parents talked with them about sexually healthy practices were more likely to take precautions and preventative measures.”

This means that young people that know more about sex are less likely to get sexually transmitted diseases or have unintended pregnancies. The Centers for Disease Control confirm that half of high school kids will have had sex by the time they graduate and STDs are consistently acquired by people between 15 and 24.

Poll: How Many Times Have You Been the Victim of Identity Theft?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

There were 12.7 million victims of identity theft in 2014 according to a study by Javelin Strategy and Research, which by some estimates translates to a victim every two seconds. The Department of Justice estimates that direct and indirect loses ran to almost $25 billion in 2012, though consumer-protection laws shield most individuals from catastrophic financial losses. Still, the time required to unravel an identity theft case is often significant, as is the emotion distress. Are you one of the many unfortunate casualities? Tell us about it.

Parents worry about oversharing online, poll says

shutterstock_99254675Many of us have seen a Facebook post or blog post from a parent that, well-meaning as it may be, leads us to wonder how the baby or toddler featured would respond if he or she were older.

A recent University of Michigan poll found nearly three-quarters of parents who use social media have witnessed this sort of “oversharing” by another mom or dad, in the form of embarrassing information about a child, inappropriate photos, or details that could identify a child’s location.

Many of those polled also acknowledged they may be guilty of this themselves.

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Since the 2012 election, the LNP has introduced a raft of new legislation aimed at combating criminal gangs across the state. Premier Campbell Newman has made the Government’s record a key plank of his re-election campaign and says the new laws are working. “Crime has gone down very very significantly… because of a stance by a Government that was determined to make the community safer,” he said during a press conference while campaigning on the Gold Coast. Mr Newman has continued to highlight lower crime rates throughout the campaign as proof that the LNP’s policies are working. ABC Fact Check takes a look at whether or not Queensland’s crime statistics reflect the Premier’s claim that crime has gone down because of new legislation. Talking about the decrease, Mr Newman cited some specific offences in his press conference. They were robbery, down 27 per cent, unlawful entry, down 20 per cent, and motor vehicle theft, down 19 per cent. Those statistics matched up with an LNP press release issued on January 5. The release said the Government had considered offences recorded between July and November 2014. Crime has gone down very very significantly… because of a stance […]
