 DD is 16 and will be a senior this year and working this summer.  DH and I are taking the younger kids on vacation next week and my 16 year old will be staying home and wants her boyfriend to stay at our house.  Her boyfriends parents are ok with this and I think husband and I are going to let them.  They are both great kids and she is on birth control and they use condoms so pregnancy is not a big concern.  Plus my mom lives 3 doors down so she can check on them in case of emergency.  Has anyone else been through this before?

Well obviously you know they are already having sex, so what would the difference be? It's not like you are giving them opportunity to start something they haven't done yet.

I wouldn't leave my 16 yr home alone. Too much temptation for trouble. Why isnt she going on family vacation ?

I wouldn't be comfortable with my DD playing house with her boyfriend while I was away, regardless if she was having sex already or not.

Wow! There is no way in hell that this would be happening in my home. I don't and I won't make it easy for my children to have sex. Promoting safe sex is great but to openly allow it to happen is another issue.

Seriously???  If your mom lives 3 doors down, have her stay there!  Could she pop over to your house unbeknownst to the family and have sex?  Probably.  But - at least this way - you don't look like you are encouraging this behavior.  You DO know that birth control isn't 100%, right?

No, I am not at that point yet, but I can say for now I'd be saying NO.  I'm raising my sons to respect my morals and home while they live under my roof.  I know teen sex might happen, and I'll make sure they are well educated and have access to protection, but I'm not going to condone it and encourage it by giving them a free and clear empty house, either.

It might be different because I have sons.  But I worry not just about a possible pregnancy, but a pissed off teenage girl crying rape with no witnesses and my husband and I halfway across the country.  Sadly, I knew girls who did this far too often in HS.

If your mom is 3 doors down your daughter should be fine by herself. And if not, she can go stay with grandma. Why in the world is she not going on the family vacation though?
