The Vatican recently rolled out a new sex education course designed to help parents and educators talk to teens about sex and counter messages on social media.
The course, published by the Vatican Council for the Family, and called "The Meeting Point: The Adventure of Love," aims to promote a dialogue between young people and their parents and teachers regarding sexuality.
The program was developed as one step toward answering the problem of the deterioration of marriage and the family put forward at the Sept. 2015 World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia and the Oct. 2015 Vatican Synod on the Family.
"One of the most delicate tasks that parents have to face in the education of their children is their emotional formation, so they can respond to the most decisive vocation for every human being: the vocation to love," wrote Archbishop Vincent Paglia, President of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
