Should 12-year-olds have access to condoms?

Is it inappropriate for condoms to be available to 12 year olds?

If your child was sexually active at 12, would you want them to be able to obtain condoms to protect themselves?

I don't think a 12 yo should be sexually active at all.  Heck, at that age I was still playing Barbies, but we are talking many many years ago.  I would think making condoms available to them would be like telling them being sexually active is ok.............I'd have to really think about it

Mine no, they were not sexually active till out of hs. Some 12 year olds, yes. Kids start younger and younger. Very sad.

IF my child was sexually active at 12, not that I would condone it, but but yes they should have access to condoms to protect themselves.

If my child became that dumb at 12 yrs old I would want them to be protected but I hope they are smarter then a lot of children these days

Yes I would. If two kids want to have sex, you'd better believe they will find a way.

If they were active of course I would want them available.  Only makes sense to me.  It would break my heart and make me sick but I am also realistic in pretty much all aspects.  It is what it is.  Put your lipstick on, grab a beer, and deal with it.

This is completely ridiculous.  We're not animals.  No 12 yo is ready to have sex.  NONE!
