The '''refusal skills''' approach of [[teen]] [[Sexual abstinence|celibacy]] advocates focuses on coaching unmarried high school students how to decline, in a way that promotes self-respect, sexual proposals by others. It attempts to minimize hurt feelings on the part of the other, while firmly respecting the right of the refuser not to be pressured into premarital sex.

'''Refusal skills''' are a set of skills designed to help children avoid participating in high-risk behaviors. Programs designed to discourage [[drug use]], [[violence]], and/or [[sexual activity]] frequently include refusal skills in their curriculums to help students resist peer pressure while maintaining self-respect. One such program is Drug Abuse Resistance Education [[D.A.R.E.]]. Programs may focus on: offering alternative activities, saying "no", being honest, and using humor.
