Most parents believe that if you put your child on BC you are giving them the ok to have sex. I don't see it that way. Now a days, your kids are more than likely going to have sex in high school no matter how well you think you brought them up. First, you need to have "the talk", probably before high school or before they start their period. Discuss with them the importance of using protection not only to prevent pregnancy but to prevent STIs. Then I believe once they get into high school or when they are 16 they should take BC. I would not want my daughter to end up pregnant in high school.
When I was in hs, one of my best friends lost her virginity when she was 13!!! Her mom was very strict yet very naive. She grew up in church and thought her precious little daughter would never have sex before marriage. I don't think her mom found out she had had sex until she was a senior in hs or after we graduated. I'm about to graduate from nursing school and one thing about nursing is prevention prevention prevention. That is what I see having "the talk" and putting my child on BC would be, prevention.
How do you feel about the subject?
