Baby Can Wait campaign: Your baby's not a baby anymore

This is the latest addition to the Baby Can Wait campaign from the United Way of Greater Milwaukee.
October is Let’s Talk Month in this campaign - a time designated for parents to start talking to their kids about healthy sex practices and relationships. For many, this is a difficult and often awkward subject.

The ads feature teens in a high chair, car seat and stroller, with the headline “Your baby’s not a baby anymore.” “Talk to your teen about sex.” Parents are directed to BabyCanWait.com, where they can find a tool kit on how to begin an open dialogue with their teens about sex and healthy relationships.

Previous editions from the Baby Can Wait campaign:
- Dunking will be over with a baby
- What kind of man preys on underage girls?
- Pregnant at the Prom
- It isn’t a fairy tale, it’s rape
- Hoax: 2028 The Movie - It Finally Ends

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
