KR (764.2 days ago) I know not every mother will agree with my choice, but when my children come and tell me they are having sex regardless of age i will do what they need to protect themselves. My daughter will NOT go on Birth control because i dont want her missing a pill, she will HAVE to have the shot so i know she wont get pregnant. My son will get a big box of condoms, and i will continue to purchase the condoms even after they run out. My thought process is instead of trying to talk them out of it, spend more time making sure they are protected *condoms apply to my DD as well* kids will do what they want to do and if your not going to help them stay protected something unwanted might happen.

Kalma2010 (764.5 days ago) My girls are 7 and 10. I plan on giving my oldest `the talk` next year when she turns 11. Since she is very into reading and loves to learn, I think I am going to put together something that caters to that. Both my girls know that we will support all their decisions and even though we will be disappointed if they get pregnant before being married that we will help and support them all the same.

busybridemommy (764.6 days ago) Scary,but it doesn`t surpise me-my husbands (troubled) teenage daughter who is almost 17 has already had `the clap` and another (thankfully treatable!) STD/STI.
With my boys I just hope to instill in them how important and special a relationship should be if you plan to include sex or intimacy.
I was raised (strict) seventh-day-adventist,and although I had premarital sex (which I am not proud of) I managed to keep it between myself and my future husband.
I think self respect has a lot to do with the decisions we all make,along with respect for others.If my boys respect WOMEN they are more likely to stop and think about how they are treating them-including the choice to have sex with them. EditDelete
