My aunt is just out there. no other way to describe it. She hardly pays much attention to her kids as they "try to steal her time away from her boyfriend" and she hates how "needy" they are.
Lately she started letting her youngest daughter date. She just turned 14 this year and has had a handful of "serious" boyfriends that she pretty much gets bored with and dumps a few days later. Then she started dating this boy who is 17, almost 18. According to my cousin his parents are never home and dont care what he does as long as he doesnt burn the house down. So he is always having her spend the night with him and takes her on road trips for the weekend. My cousin started talking to me and asking questions about sex. Honestly it got me really worried. I answered her questions as best I could and tried to give her advice on waiting and using birth control and all that without trying to sound to preachy (which is hard to do!) and now idk. I asked her if her mom knew she was spending the night with her boyfriend all the time and she said she knows and just doesnt care.
Like really? You dont care if your 14 year old daughter is spending the night with her almost 18 year old boyfriend? Are you kidding me? I dont get it. Does she want her to get pregnant? Cause I can already tell thats what most likely is gonna happen. She keeps asking me sex questions and trying to convince her to wait without sounding like the preachy cousin is getting hard! I just want to scream at her and tell her no but I want her to at least be informed on what kind of birth control is out there and what she needs to do to protect herself. Ughhhhh!
