im sorry......the best thing that i woul recommend now that you know, just provide her with more information as well as protection. im sure you dont want to be having any grandkids soon. she might be getting advice from kids her age who might not be as educated about sex, and you will be able to give her better information

Daughter wants belly pierced? Ok she makes good grades etc. She just turned 15 was living with dad now lives with me, I lived a little over an hour away an she didn't want to change schools, so I bought a house in her school zone...now demands every thing, doesn't want a permit or a job but money's me to death..she's leaving in the morning to go to Florida with a friend,but I told her I didn't have it in my budget, so she's going empty handed? Wich I think is rude, now wants a belly ring?

i joined this cafe mom to see if other parents can give me advise on my 13 year old boy watching porn and masterbating, i understand it is normal but i think he is doing it more frequently then he should

Have you or his father spoken with him about it?  

My older son didn't really make it obvious that this might have been going on and I haven't yet had to deal with it with my younger son.

Quoting meanestmother:
