  • Birth control isn't going to protect her from things penicillin won't cure.

  • Yes I would my mom did, and the only thing I can say about it is I wish she wasn't so mad about it when she found out, she didn't realize that it had nothing to do with her or how she raised me because either way I was gunna do what I was gunna do. BTW I was your DD's age too when I started

  • I think yes. Letting her take birth control is not saying u agree with her having sex. We tell our kids to wear seatbealts so, is that permi to speed!

  • My mom consistently told talked to me about waiting until I was married. She told me all the reasons not to have sex, how some guys use you, how you will regret it in the future blah, blah, blah....and I still did it. lol.
    And yep, she was RIGHT. She taught me good morals and tried to give me freedom with some added caution. She didn't let me be in my room alone with boys and stuff. She did everything she could to ensure I wouldn't do it and I STILL found ways. lol. So, NO. It's not about the parent. Put her on BC!

  • When I was a teen.. I was having sex. I was a 9th grader and had sex with like 5 sen boys that year. All of my friends were doing it. So she will do it anyway! I had sex in cars, in the yard..other people's houses. She will find a way! I even had sex with 2 guys at once in a car.
