The principal issue in this document is that abstinence education for teens is ineffective because it fails to teach teens how to protect themselves from the risks involved in sex. There is also a problem with this type of education because it is designed to tell teens what to do, which leads to teen rebelling and engaging in these activities anyway. 2 Identify any examples of bias presented by the author.

The premise of the argument is that parents do not talk to their kids early enough about sex. The conclusion is because the fact kids do not know the risks involved. Maybe if they did then they may be more logical. 9 Is the author’s argument valid or invalid, sound or unsound, strong or weak? Explain how you determined this. I am of the notion that the author’s argument is valid in this document as it is filled with facts and sources to support them.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
