When your parents had the talk with you, what did they say that helped you the most?

My SD made a comment about the pregnant girls at my school when I was a teen. He said that it was sad that the boys dump the girl most of the time. WOW. That helped me realize the reality of it all.

  • My mom just told me not to do it as a teen, that no matter what I thought at the time, I'd regret it. She was right. I am glad I NEVER did that with my HS BF, for yeah I would have regretted it.

  • My Mom is a nutso and actually was pressuring me to have a baby at 14. I knew about the birds and the bees in kindergarten. She left NOTHING in the dark. I never ended up a pregnant teen.

  • My "talk" consisted of "Do you know how to have sex?" That was it... No real talk! No advice...

  • My mom went off on a rant about how men were garden hoses and women were holes in the ground that had a "baby seed" in them... and the man had to stick the water hose in the hole in the ground to water the baby seed so it could grow.... I'll never forget that....

  • My parents never said a thing about anything. Mom gave me a booklet to read when I bled the first time. I was raised on a farm and I guess they figured I knew all there was from watching the animals. I certainly helped with enough deliveries. I watched my father turn a colt around inside it's mother because its legs popped out first and he wanted the head. Trust me That's enough to scared the hell out of you.
