Good for parents, not the classroom because lacking pictures

"I am a health teacher for middle school students and I was looking for materials to supplement my lectures. Unfortunately, this is just lecture on video. We used it a little bit in class just so the kids could see someone else talking about the same stuff but should be used in small doses.
I can see parents liking this video if they want to get caught up on the latest information regarding sexual education or if they are too embarrassed to discuss some of the topics and prefer the "so, do you have any questions?" at the end of the segments.
The good thing is that it covers a lot of topics that have come up often in the classroom (and some that the kids don't know how to ask, but should be discussed anyway) so it's nice to see something comprehensive...it's just lacking any kind of interesting visuals for students who are forced to watch it in the first place."
A serious and effective tool to educate teens

"newjhonny's review is absolutely inaccurate, you are probably for abstinence only education and i am certain that this is for you a good way to harm the only DVD on the market promoting comprehensive education in this country. You have never left any other review, and your first one is just a very nasty one..is it a coincidence ? This program has been made and produced by real experts that go to schools to talk to teens about this important topic. This DVD gives a chance to every teen in this country to get this important and accurate life saving information but these same well trained experts. It is a serious matter and the approach is serious too. It is boring may be for you, because this program has not been produced like a cartoon for a 7 years old kid. This program is designed with a very detailed navigation menu so teens don't have to watch 4 hours of program in one time. Educators and Parents, can prepare 4 sessions of 60 minutes each and educate teenagers with real trained experts who are dealing with this epidemic every day. It is a serious matter and is presented as a lecture not as a reality show. There is no program like this one out there and we are proud of having the chance to produce it. This program is a real tool to help reduce the STDs and HIV epidemic in this country that concern more than 25% of US teens according to a CDC survey in March 2008. Teenagers should not be treated like infants, and this is why this program is APPEALING to teens, but it's projection has to be organized and programed and supervised by adults, either parents or school educators or both. After each session of 60 minutes each, adults should have a 15 minutes group discussion. It has been proven very successful with small group of teens. This program will be presented for several award considerations before the end of the year."

"If you're looking for help in telling your kids about sex this is a great DVD! It's fantastic!I
I recommend this as a great supplement to the actual talk parents have with their kids - it's a whole lot less embarrassing!"
