Just a random philosopical musing....would it seem longer or shorter than if you were a worried sick 15 y/o?

You're thinking about it too much but how can you not?  

Read some posts about teens out of control to distract yourself.  LOL

Lol I just read about would you put your 13yo on birth control and I said yes if she was sexually active, or thinking about being sexually active etc and all CMs can do is post ANON that if my 13 y o was sexually active I failed..... I said no failing would be knowing shes sexually active and not putting her on the pill and she gets pregnant at 13.  sighs.... whats your thoughs, as you have a 13 yo imagine he was a she an was sexually active or thinking about being sexually active would you consider it?

Huh?  When you and I were growing up, only girls got pregnant.  Now the boy gets pregnant as well...in my book and the mothers with I talk with.

I think I'm OK for the time being.  My 13 y/o was assigned to write a research paper.  He chose the topic of the financial costs of raising a baby. We went into diapers how disposables were cheaper than washing cloth at a laundromat...interviewing mothers there.  Food, clothing, medical care at two levels of living standards.  His half of the baby's expenses gave him pause to think.  (He got an A+ on the paper, BTW).

My 16 y/o has issues relating to girls...he turned down an invitation to the Homecoming Dance.

So I think my discussion is theoretical ....at least for the time being.

The only b/c available to males is the condom.  If my son made the choice to be active, I would provide condoms and a lecture involving a banana on how to use.  I would also invite myself for coffee with the girl's mother and have a heart-to-heart.  I might even consider a single sex boarding school.  In Connecticut, sex under the age of 16 is against the law under any circumstance.

Sure.  

My position is no different for a son than a for daughter.  So I didn't consider whether he were a she.

Thinking things over the last day, I decided to amend my reply.  Again, it makes no difference he or she:

Simply preventing pregnancy does no solve the other issues with child sex.  So....I retract my statement that I would provide contraception.  If my child were to become sexually active before the age of 16--boy or girl--I would state my finding that this is a self-destructive act.  Also self-destructive is consuming alcohol, recreational drugs, smoking, murder and a host of other choices over which I have no direct control.  

I would simply allow a pregnancy to happen--boy or girl--rather than participate in a "lesser evil'. It is illegal for a child under the age of 16 to engage in sex.  However much I love my child, I would not engage in an illegal act.

Placing the child in a highly-supervised boarding school would be among my options.

What would you do? ....oh yeah, there's also bidding on e-bay for a decommissioned town jail cell.....
