||Sports. Making friends. Having fun. Making the grade. Peer Pressure. These things are all common in our lives. Our "best years of our lives" seem to come and go, without us realizing just how important each day is. It's as if we take everything for granted- our clothes; our parents; our lives. We back talk to our parents, ignore our teachers, and fight with our brothers and sisters. I guess it's safe to say that we sometimes only listen to our friends and peers. But, we're teens; it's our human name to be this way, right?
Well, in some cases, yes. Why would we want to talk to our teachers and parents about our first date, the mysterious dent on the car, or sneaking home after curfew? Why would we want to listen to our parents constantly getting on our cases to mow the lawn or to hang out with the "right" friends? This especially gets touchy when they start the lecture about sex, drugs, and drinking. I'll be the first to admit that peers can be much easier to talk to than parents or teachers. This is especially true when talking about touchy subjects like sex and AIDS.
Well, that's what this website is here for. This website is a crash course for teens like you who want to know more about AIDS and HIV, whether it is how its transmitted, how many people have died, what its structure is, or how you can help stop it from spreading.
