About this product
- DescriptionChoices is a guide for young people growing up in the Caribbean today. It provides them with accurate information about themselves and their bodies so that they can make informed decisions about their future. It focuses on happy, healthy and safe relationships, marriage and having children. This edition has new sections on the implications for young people of violence in the community, as well as on the risks involved in teenage sexual activity, social networking, and the use of cellphones. With the emphasis throughout on how to keep young people safe, this book covers ways to prevent STIs including HIV, the support, care and treatment for people with HIV, and the need to reduce stigma and discrimination.

It will be invaluable to anyone helping young people to grow up as fulfilled, caring and responsible members of families and communities.
