Project Main Details

A History of Families 
This is one part of a larger, comprehensive sex education project for at-risk teens in Virginia. The project will serve multiple geographic areas in Virginia, targeting rural locales with high teen birth rates. This voice-over will accompany an animated video, which is part of an online education course. We are partnering with school divisions, juvenile detention centers, alternative schools, and Community Services Boards throughout the Virginia to evaluate the effectiveness of an innovative online sexuality education program among rural youth with elevated risk factors for experiencing or causing a teen pregnancy or contracting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.

The primary outcomes of the online program are to 1) reduce the frequency of sexual activity; 2) reduce the number of sexual partners; and 3) increase contraceptive use among participants. The secondary outcome is to increase adulthood preparation subject knowledge and skills among participants to include healthy relationships, healthy life skills, parent-child communication, and adolescent development.

Script Details

Ideas about family and who makes up a family have changed drastically over time in the United States. Both mothers and fathers can be denied custody of their children after a divorce because a judge could always rule in favor of one or the other parent. In the distant past, custody was more often ruled in favor of the father so children could work on the family farm. In more recent history, it changed to favor the mother because they are thought to be more nurturing. In the past, it was against the law for white people and black people to marry or have children together. In some places, breaking that law carried a death sentence. Gay and lesbian couples were also denied the right to marry and denied custody of their own biological children.

As laws have been created, rewritten and done away with, the idea of a typical family has grown greatly beyond mother, father, and two children. Today there are six times as many marriages between people of different races than there were in 1970. Between 2010 and 2015, the number of gay and lesbian marriages almost tripled as more states legalized gay marriage. This number increased even more when the United States as a country legalized gay marriage.

How about you? Do you live with your mom and dad, your mom or dad, or maybe two moms or two dads? Maybe you live with a grandparent, aunts or uncles, or an older sister or brother? Maybe you live with a foster family, are adopted, aren’t living with your family, or live with close friends? Maybe you split time between different adults? Maybe your family is a mix of different races and nationalities?

No matter what it looks like, your family or perhaps chosen family, can be a source of love, comfort, and understanding.
