Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Parents are 'biggest stumbling block9 to sex education, says gynaecologist By JEAN SHARP Canadian Press Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) - Medical people often react with impatience, discomfort, anxiety or disgust to the adolescent who comes to them with a sex problem, says Dr. Carol Ann Cowell. "As health care professionals we have been remiss in recognizing their special needs. There Is a paucity of knowledge on the years between childhood and adulthood."

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "You ever thought of putting a smog-control device on that thing?" ogist with a special interest in children and adolescent girls. Recent research has convinced her that advanced sex activity among teen-agers still is confined to about 16 per cent of the total number in spite of the fact that people mature earlier sexually with each generation, she said. MATURE EARLIER A century ago puberty in girls began at 16 or 17 years. Now it starts at 12.9 years, and in each generation, mother to daughter, moves back about 10 months. Parents "are the biggest stumbling block when it comes to sex education in school." "There is no area in which our own attitudes get more in the way. "When girls come into hospital for delivery or an abortion, there is still the attitude that these adolescent girls need to be punished with this pregnancy. It can affect the health care given them." People should get over the at titude that there is something sacred about an adolescent girl's genitalia, she said. A pelvic examination should be part of health examinations in school. In answer to a question from a public health nurse, she said she thought parents would give permission for such examinations. Margaret Neils on, a nursing consultant to the Ontario health department, gave the nurses a statistical picture of changes in Family therapy reduces visits TORONTO (CP) - Family doctors who treat emotional problems of patients by using family psychotherapy may reduce by half the complaints about health the patients have, a study has shown. Dr. Arthur ComJey of Smith-ville, a family doctor who trained in family therapy at Mc-Master University, said with such help, a family may in the future be able to deal with problems previously taken to the physician either openly or masked as disease. childbirth patterns in Ontario from 1948 to 1968. All but .3 per cent of 1969 births occurred in hospital. Miss Neilson said she knows of one that occurred in a helicopter near Moosonee in Northern Ontario. Although the women's liberation movement says there were 2,000 deaths from illegal abortion in Canada last year, statistics indicate that of 90 maternal deaths in 1969, only 13 were the result of abortion, she said. Miss Neilson urged nurses to take the initiative in talking to people about birth control, and pleaded for acceptance of regional centres to provide care for high-risk pregnancies.

What does your plumbing have to do with planning Canada's future? The census avtstions iotft turn to drippy when you know how �$ tat the answers. What do we do with these fascinating facts you give us? We give them back in the form of statistics. And these statistics are used to plan a better future for all of us. (Even the question which asks "Is there piped running water in this dwelling?" is important). Once all the census information has been fed into computers, you'd be amazed at how complete a picture it gives of Canada and its people, Wkatwilt this be used for ? City and town planners use these statistics to decide where to build new schools, hospitals, roads, housing developments, community centres, parks, transportation systems - practically everything. - Business and industry use them to plan for new office buildings, industrial Bites, shopping areas, new products and new services. Social agencies and governments use them to determine how much and what kind of assistance is needed to help give all Canadians a decent standard of living. Another thing. Many government grants and assistance programs are allocated on a per capita basis. So, for every person who doesn't get counted, the community loses. What if your neighbour gels a long census form and you only get a short me 7 Don't feel offended. It works this way. Only every third census form long.
