You don't know what my child will do.

Quoting Supafly★:" No I don't, neither do you. That's not a very realistic approach. "


You're right about that. I just have to trust my kids and if they specifically come and ask for BC, we will have to talk and I'll have to think long and hard about it.

Call me old school. But I definitely think if I just put her on it, without any sign that she is or is thinking about doing it, I take that as giving her the "okay" to do it. I know that's how I took it when I was a teen. I did have sex with my bf twice before telling my mom and then she made me get BC, but her putting me on it said to me that I can do it all I want and she's cool with it. I'll never act like I'm okay with it when I'm not. I understand not every one would agree with me, but I also know not every teen is destined to have sex as a teen/in high school, and I don't want to do anything that may push them to have sex just because they know there's one less possible consequence.

Agree with this. I never went to my mom and talked to her about sex and we were very close. I came home with a hickey on my neck lol... Classy, right?

Lol. Before I was even having sex my Mom would accuse me of having hickeys when I didn't.

It took my mom forever to come around this pregnancy.... and even now she still doesn't approve of it. But I am her daughter and she will never abandon me.

She thought I had hickeys when I didn't.
My neck is sensitive and is easily irritated. Even with normal soap. So I would be walking around and out of nowhere she'd be like "I see that hickey!" and I'd tell her it wasn't and she'd be like "Uh huh. Riiiiight."

Quoting shelbylynn [33 WEEKS!]:" And still not support/approve of teen pregnancy? Or does it make you a hypocrite? "


I do not support it, and wouldn't hope it for anyone who is not finished with school or a teenager.



I got pregnant at 14, I am now 22. I have been through situations that I wish no mother, ever.. let alone a teenager.



Babies are so unpredictable, and you never know what is going to come out of getting pregnant at a young age.

I was a teen mom.



I'm completely against teenage pregnancy. I do not want it for my daughters and will do everything in my power to make sure they escape it.
