I hear people say you can prevent your kids from being teen parents by teaching them "sex ed"...Do you believe this is actually true?Yes,some kids will take it seriously and use birth control after hearing all the facts,but some just don't care and will do what they please.

Of course it wont FOR SURE prevent it, kids will make a choice to have sex or not. But it is our duty as responsible parents to educate our children and also instill good proper values

I think it will help MOST kids from becoming teenage parents and STD carriers.  It's wishful thinking to say it will help all.

I don't know.  I have a 17 year old that will not be a teen parent, and maybe she won't be a parent at all.  She hates kids. 

I think talking about it does plant that seed in their mind, of some, to either be ultra safe, or to abstain. 

I didn't have sex until I was over 19 and part of it was because of my parents, I didn't want a baby, and most of all I really felt that I didn't want to give that part of me to someone that I didn't have a long relationship with which ended up being my husband. 

AIDS wasn't an issue when I was a teen.  It wasn't around.

I think it helps, but in reality- kids are gonna do what they want to do. I think it has depends on the amount of respect that they have for their parents and themselves.

Yeah,I agree.But I'm mainly talking about the parents who say like "oh I talked to my kids about sex they'll never be a pregnant teen".My mom was one of those parents and even I had my first 2 at 15 and 17.

I do agree.  I had great respect for my parents and myself.

There's no such thing as "for sure" for everyone.  It worked for me, I made damn sure there was protection, but it didn't work for everyone.

Well, here is my 2 cents. I became pregnant at 17 and my parents talked about sex with me and offered birth control which I took from 15 and up and I got pregnant on BC.

I am a non-sugar coating, breastfeeding, church-going Christian, Childhood Abuse surviving, anti-death penalty, pro-life, disposable diapering, young LOVING mama of two, Madison Liliana Faye (6/20/07) and Isabelle Serenity Rose (11/12/08) and married to the best man in the world, my Samuel. :) Don't limit me to my signature characteristics and I won't limit you to yours. This is just the beginning. :)
