World Population Day: Who's Responsible for Youth Sexuality?
I know a funny little man,
As quiet as a mouse,
Who does the mischief that is done
In everybody’s house!
There’s no one ever sees his face,
And yet we all agree
That every plate we break was cracked
By Mr. Nobody.
The stanza above is from a children’s poem about a house where deeds are done, and important tasks left undone, but nobody is willing to claim responsibility. Whenever the topic of adolescent sexuality arises, I think about this poem.
