My confession..I don't care if teenagers have sex.

I don't care if teenagers have sex. If they are safe about it and know all the possible outcomes I really truly do not care if they have it. I also don't think parents should use a scare tactic when it comes to sex, I think that will ruin some of the magic when they do choose to have it.


Please don't say I hope you are ready to become a grandma. I bet half of your teens will have sex.


I just want my kids to be safe and knowledgable. I don't see it as some sacred thing.


For the record I will tell them that I hope they wait until they are at least 18 and in a loving relationship but ultimately the decision is up to them.

I agree 100% because I was a teen mom and if I could have had an open conversation with my mom about sex I probably wouldn't have been. I was put on antibiotics that countered the birth control my mom didn't know I was on. Since she didn't know I couldn't tell pharmacist or doctor. So they couldn't tell me the risk.

I think knowledge is power and kids should know how to be safe but also encouraged to not have premarital sex

This part I agree with for sure. I still care though. I mean it's just a weird factor to me with my innocent child being sexual. I think it's weird that I was sexual so young. I really shouldnt have been. Though this part is very right. We will NEVER be able to stop it from happening when it does. Unless you lock them in a cage.

iI completely agree with you OP.

There is NOT POINT in SCARING THEM into not having sex. It's not going to work, it's going to push them to not trust you, and they probaly will end up doing it and not protecting themselves.

I believe in information and openess..

I am going to educate my kids and teach them about protecting themselves, the risks for having sex young, that young relationships don't always last..and that I hope they wait until they are older and with someone they truly love.

Honestly I kind of agree with you. We make such a big deal out of it no wonder the want to do it. Also we make more of a deal of it then what we teach them. All we do is nag and nag and nag and then expect our teenagers to listen when it truly is important.
