Make sure your sons know that all his options end at "OHHHHHH"!
We all know about teaching our children about abstinence, safe-sex and birth-control. BUT, have you/will you make the rules of the game perfectly clear to your son? Will he know that all of his options end at "OHHHHHH!"? Will you be honest about how often birth control fails and how commonly women lie about it to trap a man or his paycheck? Will he know that she can say "Oops, I screwed up. I'll get an abortion and absolve myself of all future responsibility", but that he is stuck paying for 18 years if he wants to absolve himself of all future responsibility and she disagrees? Do you realize that many young men today mistakenly believe that they can just sign away their responsibility if they don't want the child and mate with that myth in mind?
What will you say/have you said?
*For the record, my son is still an infant and no, my DH doesn't pay child-support to anyone. We only have children with each other. I agree with all of the current rules in place. I am simply advocating that the rules are clearly explained to everyone. As a society, we tend to put more pressure on our girls in terms of pregnancy prevention.
