Personal Responsibility, Again This made me somewhat unhappy after reading it.
Teenagers seeking confidential medical help may find their primary care doctor can't agree to keep their treatment secret, according to a survey.
What's more, even if a doctor's office does supply confidential treatment, office staff may incorrectly tell teens that such treatment is not available.
"Teenagers may not go to get care for pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases if they think their parents are going to find out, and that's why the professional medical organizations have always had the position that this care should be available on a confidential basis for teenagers," Dr. Lara J. Akinbami said in an interview with Reuters Health.
If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Don't screw around unless you can deal with the consequences. Don't be too ashamed to face them, either. Even though it happens all the time, it's really disturbing for me to look at these cases where teens can't handle the consequences of their actions, but then will continue to hide from it, too! What the hell are we teaching to them? If their parents are footing the bill, they parents have a right to know. This would include if their parents are footing the bill for the insurance.
