My daughters are very young, but I've always planned on putting them on Norplant or something equivalent when they're 13. Not forcibly of course, if they objected to it I wouldn't do it. I will definitely teach them that I think sex should be saved for when they're older and in a serious relationship, but my feeling is that no matter how good a parent you are kids sometimes screw up, and when there's birth control out there that's practically 100% effective I can't see why anyone who does not wish to be pregnant should not be on it, even if not currently sexually active. I'm interested in hearing others' opinions about this.Answer Question

I really think that is a personally decision you need to make. No one can tell you if it is a bad idea or not. If you feel that is right for you guys then that is what you need to do.
