L1: I don't like not telling the friend but the girl does need guidance.

L2: This is a very weird letter.

If Meghan is eighteen or older, she doesn't need Mona's permission to
have contraception. If LW1 talked to the two of them with her son,
she probably can rebuild this poke of her nose into their privacy by
saying, "It's just that I care about you both"--but they might resent her intrusion into their privacy.

LW1 - Because I have a son, such letters freak me out. When my son is a teenager, I am buying him condoms by the case and forcing him to carry them in every bag, backpack, or wallet he has. And I'll do my best to brainwash him into a Pavlovian reaction: no sex without a condom no matter what the girl says. Then I'll keep my fingers crossed and pray.

LW2 - Team Toj.

LW1: I totally agree with Abby - and Cass. I do not understand why parents don't educate their teens about birth control. Do you want to raise your grandchildren? Do you think you can supervise or control your teens 24/7? Newsflash: You can't. So tell them that you'd prefer that they abstain until they are out of high school, but that you are realistic enough to know that a lot of teens do not. Make sure that your son has condoms and can use them responsibly. Take your daughter to the doctor for her first exam, and let her know how to get contraceptives when she needs them.

LW2: You couldn't rent a movie and have pizza and beer?

Or parents could instill values and self respect in their kids instead of just handing them condoms

You don't "just hand them condoms" nor is it wise to think b/c you are instilling your values that teenagers don't have sex.

People need to talk to their kids, much younger than teenage years.

And as for birth control, it works. http://www.medicaldaily.com/free-birth-contro...

If its in CO or WA, and its recreational, I don't see the difference between having family over to sit in the back yard, grill stuff and drink beer, from sitting in the back yard, toking and munching oreos..

Not my style personally, but things have changed.
