Concerned Parents  Report is dedicated to reporting information and imparting knowledge to parents so they can empower their children to make the healthiest choice for their reproductive health - living a  chaste lifestyle


Accuracy of the Summaries

The summaries of the studies on this website have gone through an extensive review process to ensure that the summaries are accurate.  The following are the steps of the review process:

1) As promoters of chastity and abstinence as the only way to lower or eliminate the risk of both teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, we search for studies in six areas: "Understanding Your Teen," "What's Working With Teens," "Today's Risky Lifestyle Behavior," "Today's Danger with Sexually Transmitted Infections/Diseases," "Why Contraception is Not the Answer," and "Why Abortion is Not the Answer to a Teen Pregnancy."  After obtaining a study, it is read by staff with academic degrees in Nursing, Social Work, or Sociology.

2) A summary is written and reviewed by executive and legal staff.

3) Each summary and study is sent to a review committee made up of medical doctors, nurses, doctors of epidemiology, and communication experts.

4) Corrections and adjustments, if any, are made to the summaries before they are posted to the website and sent to subscribers through the e-mail subscription service.

You can read the studies yourself by obtaining them.  We have provided the citation following the summary of each study.

What the Summaries are not.

The summaries are not a review of the accuracy of the studies.  Many of the actual studies have been peer-reviewed by the publication that originally published them. Some of the studies may not have been peer-reviewed; but may be initial findings that require further research.

Study Selection

We select materials that confirm to parents that abstinence is the healthiest lifestyle for teens and young adults today. The materials recite health statistics and/or describe medical risks from recently published articles and studies and include citations to legitimate authorities.

In addition, recent developments in health and science are shared so that parents are provided with  relevant information to enable them to make an educated and informed decision about what to teach their children. Some of this information is initial research that may require further study and research.  Some studies may conflict with other published scientific studies. We believe parents should be told of the conflicting information to assist them in deciding how they want to proceed with the information with their children.
