Never letting them out?
Stopping telling them it's okay with contraception in schools?
Do you think parenting is ever to blame? Keeping a closer eye on them? Or do you think teenagers have always been like this and always will be - it was just more covered up in the past?
I was a teenage parent and I can honestly say that although I would never blame my parents, they were my decisions, if they'd had rules I'd have stuck by them. However they didn't and I'm happy about how my life turned out. However I can see it could have been prevented.
I don't know what I'm going to do as my girls start to get older, I think I'll preach abstinence completely and try to not let them out of my sight, but I understand they need their freedom! Let's hope the close relationships we have now continue!
