•Its #FPfriday and we will be talking about “Practical ways to introducing #adolescents and #youths to #sexuality and reproductive health info by Wemimo Adebiyi #Safespaces4youth #FPFriday #LifePlanningGIT .@Devcoms .@GetittogetherNG .@Healthcommng .@Notagaincampaig
It’s best to start talking with #children about sexuality early. You may ask, “How early?” For young children, you can start by teaching them the names of their body parts or asking if they know why girls and boys look different #FPFriday
When we talk to children about sex, it’s important to keep our conversation age appropriate #FPFriday
If a five-year-old asks, “What is birth?” we might respond, “When a baby comes out of a mother’s body #FPFriday
If a 10-year-old asks the same question, our answer would have more detail and might begin with, “After nine months of growing inside its mother’s uterus, a baby comes out through her vagina #FPFriday
Providing young people with information that is age-appropriate makes it easier for them to understand that sex is a natural part of human and emotional development but it is meant for an appropriate time(Avoid saying “it is for daddy & mummy) #FPFRIDAY
By the time they turn 19 years old, 70 percent of teens have had SEX, so It’s important to give truthful, useful, and accurate information about sex and sexuality #FPFriday
Educate your children, teens, adolescents and youths about their sexuality early in other to create safe spaces for them #FPFriday
To find out more about creating safe spaces for youths and information on how to teach your wards Life Planning skills contact .@Devcoms .@GetittogetherNG
Also important to prepare them to make responsible choices whenever they become sexually active. it’s important to talk with teens about abstinence, preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections #FPFriday

We are now live with @Ronikpe @Devcoms who answered our questions on the topic "Linkage between family Planning and women's health" You want to know why to space birth and not rush the process because you want to be young and fine again. #ISSathread #FPfriday
@ronikpe @Devcoms Dr Ronald Ikpe (medical). runs MRI Medic Consulting limited, a one-stop health Consulting outfit (mrimedicconsulting.com ) with a special interest in general wellness #FPFriday @devcoms @getittogether
@ronikpe @Devcoms @Getittogether The impact of childbearing is directly proportional to the time interval of births. The lesser the spacing, the less healthy a woman is. We should realize that pregnancy is a physically and emotionally demanding process/journey for every woman- @Ronikpe #FPFriday

It started with the weeds then the pills and acid, making cocktails of all sort of drugs and overdosing to make them last longer
I ended up homeless and on the streets living in a box, out of school and begging for alms, my name is BEN, learn from Ben #NoExcuse4Drugabuse
Young people today are exposed very early to drugs. Students now have people selling or offering them drugs on school property #Noexcuse4drugabuse
