How did you react when you first found out that your teen was sexually active? Was it how you thought you would?

My teen isn't sexually active.

I hope I would react very calmly and respectfully, but I would definitely try to guide them in the morals and values that oru family believes in.

My son is almost a teen so nothing going on for him now. I would hope to react the same as the Mom above said.

We haven't gotten there yet. I don't even know how I think I'll feel, lol. Nervous I guess. I hope I've gotten the safety talks to sink in.

 my son came to us and told us.. i was sad, but didnt let it show.  we just talked some more and my husband made sure he had protection. I dont like it, but at the same time I am happy he at least trusts us to tell us everything he does. We explain to him not to take advantage of girls... i have actually told him "you wouldnt want a boy taking advantage of your sister right?" lol.. that puts pressure on him. He has had 3 girlfriends so far and has respected them, had sex only with the one that wanted to and she was his same age.  It is a sad moment when they tell you, its like you actually see them grown.

My daughter is only 4, but I would hope that she would come to me freely and ask questions, I hope I can stay calm and not want to kill the boy it happened with. Now my husband he for sure will flip out and want to have a sit down with the boy with his gun in hand.

My daughter's can't date til they are 18...Our eldest saved herself for her husband on her wedding night...My second didn't, but was 18, so no control over it...Our 3rd has a boyfriend (she's 18) and if they decide it's their business...My 16 year old, isn't sexually active..How do I know that, her male "friend" is a marine and he's deployed...Plus he lives across country from us...

I don't like the idea either...BUT at least the communication is open, that's KEY....I think teens need us as much as babies do...Not the obvious, but the emotional,soundboard,help with making decisions area...Contrary to belief, teens are VERY fragile....
