  • Give them back to him. So he's having sex. Everyone does. It's normal and healthy. Just leave them on his dresser or something with a note that says "Old enough to have sex = old enough to do your own damn laundry ~love mom" :p

  • He's an adult. I'm afraid there isn't much you can say or do that is going to have any affect on him. At least you know he's got protection available. It's better than him coming to you and saying "guess what you're gonna be a grandma." Not a big deal. If I was you I would just put them on his dresser in his room with a note that says "I found these in your pants." Leave it at that. See if he comes to you to talk about it. If not...I wouldn't say anything. Just cause he has condoms in his pockets doesn't necessarily mean he's having sex. He might have just had them "just in case."

  • He's 18 now and going to do what he wants to do. The best thing you can do is talk to him about STD's and pregnancy and safe sex. If you think he is using those condoms make sure he gets tested regularly some things can still be transmitted even if a condom is used.

  • Damn. I wish you would've been my mom. I've been washing my own clothes sense i was 11 years old.
    If this is the first time you've found condoms in his pockets consider yourself one of the lucky parents.

  • I will be shocked when my now 11 month old starts having sex. They're always babies in our minds, but they do grow up, and they do become adults, and they really should do their own laundry :p

  • I know I should but I like things done now not later but he does his own ironing and he cleans his own bathroom...

  • funny Ati.
    Yeah what they said.
    At least he is using a condom. I agree with the note saying that you found them and if he wants to talk your door is always open.
