  • This class showed me to respect myself and helped me learn more about the consequences, benefits, and effect sex has.  I’ve always been scared for the “sex talk” in health classes but this gave me a more clear outlook on things.  Sex is special.  Love is not infatuation.  There are good and bad consequences for everything.

  • This class has shown me how important it is to make your own decisions.  Whether it’s with sex, drugs, or just boundaries.  Because bad decisions will have consequences if not for you, for others.  There is a physical and emotional risk for everything you do.

  • Mostly everything, honestly you have made me realize a lot of things but you have also made an amazing impact in and on my life…I’ve gotten used, I guess, but a guy I truly cared for and I realize all he wanted was sex, he had just told me lies.  Thank you for everything; means a lot.

  • This class showed me that I get to choose what I do based on my boundaries and values.  My life is valuable.

  • This class with Mr. Pratt has impacted me in a sense that now I understand even more the psychological effects that could happen with pre-marital sex.  I have always planned on saving my sex for marriage, and now I have another reason to.  Also, I learned even more about the bodily changes of sex.  I can honestly admit that I have learned so much in the last 5 Thursdays.  I will keep this information with me for the rest of my life.

  • This class has kept me from making stupid decisions.  I have had the chance to have sex with my girlfriend so many times but everything you have told us in this class stays with me.  I have thought about risks for me and her.  I am not a virgin whatsoever.  But she is, and I am going to help her and make sure she saves it so she don’t have to deal with the risks or anything.  Thank you for helping me and her.

  • Huge!  It has helped me understand it’s not cool to do something you will regret later just for a moment’s satisfaction or to fit in or to be cool and that maybe I  should save my sex for marriage and not just blow it off where I regret it.  It’s not just physical attraction, it’s everything else as well.

  • My sister has really bad anxiety and I’m not allowed to talk about it.  This class has taught me not to keep it in and that I need to talk to somebody, so I talked to my mom and I feel like a weight has lifted.

  • This class has had a positive impact on me.  It opened my eyes a lot and helped me learn the reasoning and consequence of decisions and will help me make much better decisions.  It helped me realize that I am not alone dealing with emotional baggage, that it does happen and it will get better.

  • You helped me to realize that it’s okay to go towards my goals during high school and not party and stuff all the time.  Mainly because that just ends up hurting you more than the way it feels good.  Made me realize that I shouldn’t care what anyone thinks during high school.

  • It’s had a huge impact on me.  It’s helped me realize who my real friends are and to make decision for me and not to please others.  It has also helped me regain my focus on stuff that matters like sports, grades, and family.  I also have not been messing around with other girls and continue not to.

  • This class has taught me a lot about every subject you talked about.  Yes, I already knew some things but no near as much.   I think this class needs to be taught to every kid in this school so maybe they can rethink some decisions they would make because I know it helped and made me change some decisions.

  • It has had impacted me by teaching me to save my sex until marriage.  That was the best thing that I could have learned.

  • It has impacted the way I see things, and it has made me understand things more clearly.  I’m glad I got this experience to learn more about life and love.  Everything I have learned in the past few weeks will help me in the future.  I personally thank you for sharing this information with me.

  • This class has changed my view on sex and relationships.  I haven’t had a perfect life and I haven’t made the best decisions and I want to change.

  • This class has showed me how valuable I am.  I now know that my life, choices, and special aspects need to be kept until I am ready to share them.  Honestly without your educating I wouldn’t have known about everything.  I wouldn’t have valued myself, my choices, and my sex life as important as I do now.  I now know the qualities good and bad of people who are and are not perfect to share stuff with.  Thank you so much!
