Would you buy your son condoms?

Posted by   + Show Post

Would you provide your son 15 and older with condoms if you suspected he was having sex or know he was having sex or may have it. Of course, along with "the talk" etc.  I always said and thought I never would when friends with older boys told me they had.  I may have even been secretly appalled.  With that said I have changed my mind with my now almost 16 yr old.  Just wondering what others have or think they would do.

Quoting lnrmom:

Yes. I'd rather buy condoms than diapers.


I won't buy either. Its called they need to be responsible for their own actions.

Seeing as my son is only 10 I don't want to think about it, but I asked my DH and he says yes he would.

Yes, and my teen daughter too. She may cave to her bf or her urges.  As said above, I'd rather buy condoms than diapers.

 Yes yes! I think that every parent should teach their child to be responsible. My son is only 5 but I will definenlty do this! It is better to buy them condoms than to get a girl pregnant. It does both ways. Boy and girls need to learn to protect themselves! I was only 19 when I got pregnant with my son and became a single mom. I wouldn't change it him for the world but it presented challenges that could have been avoided.

My husband did for our 16 y/o son. I was torn and wasn't crazy about the idea but I suppose he knows what he's doing.

My son is 15 and yes if i knew was having sex I would.  Even if you don't want your kids to have sex they will do it anyways. I want my son to be smart and not become a father or get some diease.
