  • Sit down, don't beat around the bush. Be blunt and honest and understanding. Listen and hear him. Don't make accusations or be angry....he'll lock up and not tell you a thing if you do.

  • Most likely they say those things because the girls love hearing it but that doesn't mean there not going to try anything. I'd have a talk with him and make sure that if he does try anything that he'll be safe.

  • I think you just need to be honest with him. Make sure he knows how you feel and that if he is going to make certain decisions he better be ready for the consequences. I know that when we talked to my kids we said something like "this is what I would hope you for and this is what I did. If you choose to make a different decision then this is what you must do."

    Sometimes kids talk and there may be nothing to these messages, I just think you need to be prepared and be honest.

    Good Luck

  • I would just tell him the truth... you looked at his phone and you are worried... if hes going to do it theres probably not a lot you can do to stop it... but you can get him checked and get him some protection and talk about what sex can do... like stds and babies.

  • I would not let him know that you snooped and read his things. I would just keep a close eye on him and have talks about being respectful to girls and if the girls are being aggressive than they are probably the ones who have diseases and get pregnant at a young age. Just scare him and know where he is and who he is with at all times.

  • grab a banana or zuchini and have dad SHOW him how to put on a condom
    explain to him about STD's and pregnancy, get graphic! this is not condoning his behaviour, but preparing him for ALL possibilities! i would rather go the the store and buy condoms and birth controll pills, than not know what my kids were doing!
