Do you suspect your teenager is sexually active?

Just wondering. My mother never had a clue about me til she read it in my diary years later. So I'm wondering if you suspect your teens are having sex?

  • my parents assumed i was years before i actually was. to the point where my dad stormed in my room one night yelling at me about how irresponsible i was being, 3 yrs before i actually had sex!

  • My baby is way too young, it doesnt even have its parts yet lol. =)

    If you have teens, the most you need to tell them is to wear a condom, and make sure to check the other person for std's, thats what starting with oral is used for lol

  • I know they aren't. We have a very close open relationship. Three yrs ago my BFF's 14 yr old DD had a baby. This event had a profound affect on my daughters. They know they can come to me for birth control because I may flip out at first but this would be nothing compared to how I would freak if they told me they were pregnant. My eldest DD is 18 so I am not in denial about the fact that she could be having sex, but I know her well, and I would bet my next breath she is not.

  • I know with 110% certainty that my almost 13 yr old is NOT having sex. He doesn't go very many places without me or another adult and he actually has no interest in girls, yet.

  • I suspect my 17yr old stepdaughter is having, or has had sex with her 23yr old boyfriend whom her mom approves of her dating. I think he is using my SD since I found a letter from SD to him which seemed to show her desperation after she found out he was seeing someone else. But, there is not much I can do about it since SD doesn't come over here very often any more - she knows we disapprove, so we've seen her twice since March. When I do see her, I try to find every day situations or stuff we see on tv to bring up "general topics" about love, sex, boys, relationships, etc. That is the only way I can help her at this point without pushing her further away and ending up with no relationship or effect on her at all.

  • I doubt it. I think shes too chicken, but I know theres a part of her that has more experience than I know about. Shes always with me and when shes not, shes at school or at track practice. I give her very little time to do such things. Friends come here with me, so I can watch them at all times, but for sure they are sneaky.

  • yes my 17 year old is having sex, we just keep expressing that we wish he had waiting but this being a part of life he must protect himself and his partner. be responsible and be ready to deal with the outcome------- SEX MAKES BABIES!
