Survey Says: Network of Trust (May 2017)

Although teens consistently say that parents most influence their decisions about relationships and sex, adults are decidedly more skeptical about their role in the eyes of young people. Even though adults remain doubtful about their value as influencers, they universally agree that young people should have a trusted adult or network in their lives…and that that network might be a key component in helping teens successfully navigate adolescence and avoid risky decisions throughout their lives.
