Big Decisions: Making Healthy, Informed Choices About Sex

The goal of the Big Decisions curriculum is to help young people make healthy and informed decisions about sex and relationships. Big Decisions is designed to vigorously—and effectively—encourage young people to postpone sexual involvement, and also to provide the guidance and information young people need to reduce their risks when they do become sexually active.

Big Decisions, authored by HFTX founder Dr. Janet Realini, is used in more than 20 Texas school districts and contains 10 easy-to-use lessons:

  •     Suitable for Grades 8 to 12
  •     Medically Accurate and Up-to-Date
  •     Conforms to Texas Law (TEC §28.004)

The 4th Edition of the Big Decisions curriculum is available from:
