Would you buy the condums?

My 15 yr old seems to be getting serious about his girlfriend. We have talked about sex, as we have a very open relations ship. So Would you or would you not buy them? I know they are going to do it if t hey want to so I think I would.

  • Yes,if it's inevitable you might as well make sure he's protected I guess.

  • I owuld. He is (eventually) going to have sex anyways. You'd rather he be protected against STD's and pregnancy. Some teens are embarrassed to buy them and then just do it without. My siblings and I had an open relationship with our parents and it made it a lot easier to be honest with them about those things. I applaud you for being so open and honest with him. It made a big difference in my family and I'm sure your son will feel the same way :)

  • I agree...I would sit him down and say..I do not condone, but i also don't want you to become a parent or get a disease. So, before you do anything, tell me and i will buy condoms.

  • Give him the banana and condom lecture. Tell him that if he and his girlfriend are mature enough for sex, they are mature enough to discuss and purchase contraception, decide beforehand what to do when it fails, and do it with the lights on. Make very clear that you will not be supporting a teenager's baby.

  • Hell yes I would. I like the banana and condom lecture. To dillonsma: yes, I would teach him how to use them. I would rather my son be protected then come home and tell me his girlfriend is pregnant.
