It's not a whole article, just one of those little tidbits they throw in there to take up space. LOL!
For reference, Today's Parent is Candada's big mainstream parenting magazine. (My landlord got us a subscription - think he was trying to tell us something? LMAO!)
Anyways, here it is:
"You want grandchildren, don't you?
Fertility experts in the UK say children should learn about their biological clocks at the same time they learn about condoms. 'Sexual health messages at the moment focus entirely on avoidance,' British obstetrician-gynecologist told The Guardian. But as more and more women struggle to conceive in their 30s or 40s, says Hamilton, young people need to know the risk of not having babies earlier in life."
What do you guys think? I think it's interesting, I like that these things are being talked about in the mainstream. Obviously they're not talking specifically about teen pregnancy, but they're talking about rethinking childbearing. Not especially radical or anything, but IMO when you see small things like this and the article in Teen Vogue in mainstream media, it sort of allows for opening up the convo, ya know? Every time we talk we are practicing and participating in a discourse, and when this stuff hits the mainstream so that we can talk reasonably, I think that's a baby step towards changing the dominant discourse.
What do you think, am I too optimistic?
