Make sure they had the proper birth control, knew how to use it. And tell them to be responsible. Won't be smacking my kid for doing something that is really beyond my control
get her on bc stat, and have VERY supervised visits, otherwise she wants to act grown she can get a job and start paying rent
Talk to them about being responsible, at that age I don't think there is too much I could do without pushing them away.. I hope that my sons would feel comfortable enough to discuss stuff with me without fear of judgement.
I'm not sure... I plan to have "the talk" with dd before she's 17, complete with safe sex methods (ie bc and condoms) and the responsibilities that come with being sexually active. So i would hope that if she was having sex it would be safe sex. It's hard to say what we'd do because 17 is awful close to 18... we'd probably have to have another serious talk.
Discuss it with him/her. Teach them (if not already) how to be safe about it. She was 3 weeks short of being 18. What can you really do?
If she's not already on it, I'd get her on birth control or I would get him condoms. If they already have those, I'd tell them they better beusing them or else I'm going to kick their butts and call the other one's parents.
