Most of you should know what it is, if not you can Google.
If you've participated in TRL, or your children have, do you feel that abstinence alone, is adequate sexual education?
Were you taught responsible sexual practices? Were you encouraged to practice safe sex, even within a "monogamous" relationship? What about barrier methods for contraception?
Were you encouraged not to practice safe sex (even if it is only one partner- within the legal and spiritual confines of marriage)?
**If you've participated in TRL, do you think it is wise to force a child to participate in, or expect them to?Answer Question

Abstinence Alone- NO. Certainly not, aren't shows like "Teen Mom" proof enough that that mentality is failed?
Abstinence + Sexual education(everything from STD"s to safe sex and preventative measures)- YES. It is what I was taught and what I will be teaching my children. I am not naive enough to assume they will refrain from sex until they are married thus I will ensure they are educated on the matter so that they may make educated decisions themselves, and should they engage in sex ensure that they are protected.

Wow Samuri... I'm shocked by what you said. Go ahead and teach your son how macho he is to bang a bunch of girls so that he doesn't have, what was it, "pencil dick"? At least my DD will know the likes of THAT kind of parenting. Anyway, the girls on the panels were volunteers. And tehy never talked about anything that they didn't discuss as a true difficulty in their REAL LIFE. They truly wanted to encourage other teens to wait until they were responsible enough to make adult decisions. There are so many situations in school where having babies as a teen is glamorized. If we helped a handful of kids have pencil dick until he/she was old enough to take on the responsibilities that follow, then it was all worth it. GL with your son! I truly mean that!
