Parents and teens were at Pleasantville High School Wednesday night for a student led workshop on teen sexual health issues.
The 6th annual "Family Night" was held by the Pleasantville High School Teen Prevention Education, or Teen PEP group. 18 student leaders, chosen and led by two advisors from the school, held a discussion to help open the lines of communication between parents and students about teen sexual health issues.
Members of Teen PEP say they hope to make it easier for parents and kids to talk about these issues.
"Often times its Uncomfortable for parents to talk to their kids about sex, like the birds and the bees talk, so we're hoping that tonight we give them an easier way to start up the conversation with them," said Mihir Jani, a Teen PEP member.
Teen PEP members say they are the only school in South Jersey with the program, and are looking to expand to other schools.
