When I was 15 I went to visit my sister in Berkeley. Me and my 10 yo niece took a subway alone to San Francisco and then went to wels Fargo to work for a friend of my sis. At lunch the friend took us out and then let us have an hour to walk around china town alone.

Sit backwards in the back seat on the station wagon! Once we got a couch from my grandma in Ohio and they out all the seats down and slid the couch in. My sis and I had to lay down on either side of the couch for the 8 hr ride home.

A few things:

I remember lying on the back dash of the car as we drove down the road. We also used to hang our heads out of the window and my mom would drive in the puddles. I can't believe I did those things!! lol

When I told her the condom broke she pushed it under the rug got me the morning after pill from her ob in her name for me. Never talked about it again.

I will always talk to my children about sex, drugs, alcohol when they are old enough to understand. Its not fair if we don't teach them about the things they WILL be exposed to.
