I know you can't stop them from being sexually active altogether, but I would make it my life goal to inform them about how having sex can change their lives forever. Teaching them sex safety, condoms, pregnancy, how sex can change relationships. I would make sure my son is always with condoms and about girls her are just out for a "good time". My daughter the same thing. I would encourage them to wait and have sex until they find someone who they truly care about and definitely someone who cares about them and accepts them for who each other are.

i would love to say laying down the law and restricting them would stop them, but it wont (there are ways around that)... education is the best way to make them understand, talk their ears off, show them picture of sexually transmitted diseases, get them in contact with someone who got pregnant your and let them talk to them and let them realize the struggles, and consequences that come with it. I’m talking from experience i did not have any of that... my parents didnt direct sex talks towards me because i was the "good one" they directed it towards my sister.... i ended up pregnant at 17, im not blaming anyone, I HEARD them talk about it, it just did not sink in. I believe talking and talking and talking about it over and over again, would have helped me understand the perplexity of the situation. i just wish i was talked to more about it and i wish i was educated and realized the consequences
