It's not always easy to talk to your teen about difficult topics such as sex, puberty and relationships.
The Source is here to provide you with guidance and information so you can help your teen through their young reproductive years and teach them how to make smart choices. Our holistic approach provides your teen with medical services, counseling, education and mentorship. We even provide counseling to help you and your teen communicate more effectively.
I want to equip my teen to make healthy relationship choices.
As a parent of a Generation Z teen, you know "because I said so" doesn't quite cut it when it comes to encouraging positive behaviors. The good news is, teens today are more health conscious and information driven than ever before. They do respond to stats and facts regarding their health, and that's where we can help!
The Source offers preventive care to empower your teen to make healthy choices before engaging in sexual activity that lead to an unintended pregnancy or STD/STI. Our evidence-based 4Real: Relationships education equips young adults with the information they need to consider how their reproductive choices affect the health of their body, mind, and spirit, as well as their future goals and dreams.
As a parent, you have a strong influence on your teen's sexual behavior and play a key role in helping her or him make healthy, responsible and values-based choices. Let The Source equip and empower you and your teen to have a healthy conversation. Make an appointment to learn more or schedule one of our preventive care services for your teen today.
My teen may be pregnant.
There are few situations more frightening than suspecting your teen may be pregnant. Maybe she said that she missed her period or perhaps you have just seen changes in her that make you believe she might be expecting. Whatever the case, it’s important that you speak with your daughter about your suspicions in a loving and understanding way so that you know you will support her no matter what.
Speak to her about your concern and then encourage her to take our online pregnancy quiz to determine the possibility she may be pregnant.
If your teen has approached you with her own concern that she may be pregnant, we encourage you to not react with anger, although it is understandable that it may be tempting to do so. Chances are, she’s very scared and needs your support and guidance. Again, we suggest that you have her take our online pregnancy quiz.
If the quiz suggests that your teen may be pregnant, The Source offers pregnancy testing at no cost. Once you know the outcome of the test, our holistic reproductive health care program includes no-cost medical, counseling, mentorship, education, and other services to serve your teen. If there is a positive confirmation of pregnancy, we will fully educate your teen on all of her options and provide her with access to our network of community resources providers that will help support her in making a healthy choice. If there is a negative confirmation of pregnancy, our holistic services are available to support her reproductive health, as well as your relationship with each other, if needed.
I want to reconnect with my teen in cost-free counseling.
Communication between parents and teenagers always has its difficulties. Sometimes it feels like you just can’t get on the same page. Misunderstandings, frustration, anger – it seems like every conversation builds a higher wall between you and your child. But there is hope.
At The Source for Women, we provide counseling at no cost so you and your teen can learn how to communicate more effectively and break down barriers between you. We’ll give you the tools you need to talk with your teen in an open, non-judgmental way, resolve conflict and teach your teen how to make smart choices.
I want to join with others to influence healthy choices in our community!
The Source is always in need of people in the community who want to join the effort to empower and educate women to make smart life choices. If you’re interested in becoming part of our mission, stop by our offices for a coffee tour to find out how you can be involved.
