If you knew your teen was having sex in a serious relationship, how accepting would you be if they were being safe? Would you allow your teen and their partner their privacy or would you try to keep them as far apart from each other as possible? Would you allow sleepovers? I know parents that are at both ends of this issue. I'm not there yet, my dd is 13 but I'm sure it won't be long until I'm faced with this.Answer Question

I will put my girls on birth control pills by the age of 15 if not before then if needed. I am not going to promote sex before marriage, but I am not so naive that I think that won't happen. I don't want them saying "Hey mom, me and Brian are going to my room to have sex." I would rather not know that much detail. I want them to be in a serious monogamous relationship with a good boy. I would have huge issues with them sleeping with multiple partners! This whole situation really stresses me out. I love my girls so much and I just want them to be educated about sex and protected. I want them to only do it with someone they truly love.
