  • A Teenage Moment

    OMG......DS#4 (15 yrs old) came to me yesterday afternoon to talk about one of his best friends. She had sex for the 1st time and thought she might be pregnant. She's been in a total panic. It doesn't sound like she is to me, but I hope it scared the begeezers out of her enough that she stops this behavior.

    I'm grateful that DS was confident enough to come talk with me about it. Believe it or not, he already has one friend that has a child at 15.

      I'm sure it's really tough... at the FIRST "moment" to become so clinical and say, "we can't do this w/o a condom..." but here's hoping this very young girls gets that clinical saying in her head!!!

      You are lucky, Cookin' that DS felt comfortable talking to you about it!!

        Can you also believe that DS#3 (19 yrs. old) has 3 friends that have babies already and his best friend is pregnant right now?

        I'm grateful for many things.........none of the babies have been produced by my kids. (I think we taught them way better)

        They all will come to me for advice for their friends. When their friends won't go to their own parents.

        None (that I know of anyway) have had an abortion. I have counseled several of DS#1's friends on this subject.

        You know the saying about sons'........when you have a daughter you have to worry about lots of penises, when you have a son you only have to worry about one..........fortunately I have 4 and seems like they staying zipped up.

            That is just plain sad.
            With all of the education out there available for birth control and that girl went through an abortion, then a miscarriage and then finally had a baby - but still a teenager then????

            That is awful.

            CookinKat - yes you're very lucky your sons talk to you. My DD's always have and so did their friends also when they wouldn't talke to their parents.
            I hope my DS will talk to us too.

            They all start at such a much younger age nowadays too.

              It's such a shame they don't have enough sense to use birth control when it's so readily available to them. They just don't understand how a baby can absolutely change your entire life, and usually not for the better when they're than young. So sad.
