The US$434,000 solution

Someone at the University of Central Florida might have the right idea. Teaching middle schoolers about abstinence with a video game sounds ingenious. If it works. With the average age around 13 for girls and boys entering the sex trade, there's room for change. But is this even close?

Understanding discernment has my vote. So does understanding dignity. And so does anything else that empowers kids to make good long term decisions. Decide for yourself whether this video game does that.
