Help each other 
I had a boy friend when I was in P4. We did not have sex. But we are now just friends. We help each other with classwork. He gives me good advice like he advised me to stop stealing.

 Are you a girl? Do you have a boy who is your  friend? Are you a boy and have a girl as a friend?How do you behave to each other?
Share knowledge 
I have a girlfriend who is very beautiful. But I take her as my sister. We help each other with studies andshare knowledge. So friendship does not mean sex.Let’s take girls as our own sisters, and say no to sex.

Breasts are made of fat milk ducts and alveoli. When a female has baby, milk travels from the alveoli to the milk duct then to the nipple.The fat determines the sizeof the breast. If you have a lot of fat your breast will be big. Having big breast doesnot mean you are ready for sex. Don’t let anyone pressureyou into sex by saying your breasts are big.

Managing feelings about sex
I had a girlfriend who was 10.We shared every little thing.One day I took her home. She was so happy. That day we had sex. Some time later a boy wrote a love letter to her. She accepted. I got annoyed and told her to pay back all my things. She refused and I ended the friend-ship.
Dennis, 12, Kaliro, CU PS

It is not good for you todrink alcohol. This puts you in situations thatcause you trouble like having unprotected sexbefore you are married or even ready. A girl sent me a message that she loved me.The second time she sent me sweets. I was very happy and she became my girlfriend.One day she asked for sex. I refused. I fearedSTDs and HIV. She abused me and that is how friendship ended. Brian Wakwesa Kaliro CU PS.Brian, thank you for standing by your decision.Friendship does not mean sex.I have a friend with whom we share andmove. I chose him because we are the sameage. But one day he was caught having sex un-der the desk in class.
Emmanuel, Kaliro PS
