  • Since I was a teen mom, yes I would to keep her from going through the hard times I went through. Because if they are already sexually active youre not going to be able to stop them so just make sure they are safe... IMO

  • yes, I have and do. My oldest son is 22 and the 2nd son is 18. Better to provide than hide from the reality of it!

  • I would help my daughter get birth control in her teens, not only does it help sometimes with periods, I am going to be very open with my daughter like my mom was with me. When I turned 15, my mom and I had a discussion and I went on Brith Control.

  • Yes I would. I'd rather for them to be protected, than to be pregnant or have a STD.
