Stupid analogy. Driving is a required helpful skill for life, pregnancy and sex is not.
Edited to reflect a better clearer answer.
Well haven't thought about it that way.
But my children won't drive until they are 18 anyways, so hey I will make the rule they can't have sex until then either. I will try hard to teach them that there are way more important things in life other than sex.
YES. If I could have it MY way MY kids would be in a freaking bubble always.. But such is life and if they choose to have sex I have given them all the info they need to be smart about it, just like I have given them all the proper instruction on how to safely operate a vehicle. Lets hope they are smart enough to take my advice!
Quoting Lindsayhoy0612:You can't put an age on things some are more mature then others. To say a "teen" shouldn't have sex is just stupid. They can be married at 18 but can't have sex until they are 20?
I agree, I was one of those who got married at 18, and am still with the same guy at 27. it all depends on the maturity level.
Well, that would be nice. i dont fear my son getting pregnant. i fear him getting a trashy girl preggo. but based on his current love interests (hes only 7,) i should be okay. i also fear him getting an std. when i was a teen - in high school - i didnt have sex for fear of stds (#1) for fear of getting pregnant (#2) and being labeled a slut (#3)..... i was never any of those things but crashed my car 3 times.
Until your new teen driver pulls out of the driveway alone for the first time-yoiu have no idea!
There is driving and then there is "safe driving". Safe driving requires classes and practice and a permit and have to have an adult with them.
Sex requires hormones-which my kids are not allowed to have until they are 30!
