How would you feel if you found out your teenager was having sex underage?
How would you address the issue?
I would be pretty disappointed. I would be talking seriously to them about the consequences.
Good luck. Please let us know how it goes.
I'd be okay with it, its her choice and my daughter's an emotional bisexual so we don't have to worry about the pregnancy part.
If she is bisexual then I would have thought pregnancy could happen. Or am I missing something?
I would be very pro active and vocal. Anything to stop teenage pregnancy.
Well my oldest is 19 and he's still a virgin. My youngest is 14 and she's never been kissed yet (not that I'm aware of). My daughter and I are open, so I would hope that she would come to me about something like that.
Well #1 it depends what you mean by underage? By 17ish I would make sure they knew how to be safe and supply them with contraception. If you are talking 12-15 I would never be allowing them out of my sight and if the opposite person was older than 16 I would be going to the police.
To be hones I would be very sad. U said underage so I'm thinking 16 and younger. I talk about it with my kids all the time. When the time comes i hope they use the into they have learned and keep themselves safe. When my son was 15 (last year) His very first girlfriend was pregnant with her 2nd child when they met. Altho the relationship was very brief it gave him a uniquie perspective. I don't worry with him as much (1) because he's almost 17 so his age isnt that big of a factor (2) he strongly believes in waiting for marriage. How long that will last I don't know. But for now. I would also have them chat again with my neice who is HIV positive. She's also dealt with other std's. she's had conversations with them in the past and probably will again.
