Parents talk to your kids about sex and how to prevent pregnancy. Have you noticed how many middle/high school kids are pregnant? Furthermore, I am sick of going to work to support these government funded kids. I can not believe we live in a day that parents do not have a handle on their kids, condoning it by paying for their weddings and letting them move in with them before they graduate high school, I am disgusted. Before somebody says its the difference between the caught and the uncaught, no it's stupid vs protected. The educated vs the uneducated. The responsible vs the irresponsible. It is sleeping around vs abstaining. Get the picture?

Most of these kids parents probably don't know how to prevent a pregnancy. I had one older gentlemen once tell me, when I asked him if his parents ever talked to him about sex, he said god no we just figured it out on our own. What is really surprising is that there isn't more teenage pregnancies.

Why mandatory for anygirl under eighteen? It takes TWO ya know.
Also, should we make it mandatory for anyone who is homeless, unemployed, on welfare mandatory for birth control too?
We need better places for teens to hand out in this forsaken town besides each others beds, maybe if there were more things to do they would stay out of trouble.
Better education/ free condoms and birth control available at school without parents permission. This is why often kids get pregnant bc they are afraid to tell there parents they are having sex, thus no birth control.

It doesn't matter how much stuff there is for kids to do in our town or any other town, kids are gonna have SEX! Now, with that said, they can be smart about it, or in most cases, clueless. But if they are going to have sex, then they need to be educated and they need to have access to birth control. They are gonna have sex without parental consent, so they should be offered birth control and education without parental consent. Will this prevent all teen pregnancies? NO, but it sure would put a dent in it. These kids are playing russian roulette right now, and most are gonna lose at one time or another playing that game.

I agree it does take two. however, the girl always bears more of the burden. She is the one in all likely hood raising the kid. If I had a daughter she would have birth control as soon as she became able to get pregnant. Along with that, I would remind her on a weekly basis about the dangers and consequences of teenage sex. There is just to many examples out there to see. A teenage girl who gets pregnant will always be fighting the odds just to survive. That doesn't include the cost on society in general. Parents talk to your kids about sex and birth control.

It begins at home. Teach the kids. Dont be afraid to talk to them and answer their questions honestly. Most people want to hem haw around the subject. Teach them to be responsible. Does this mean they want try anything in the heat of the moment, no it dont, but it may make them think about the outcome of that heated moment

Yes! Sterilization would be a good idea, too.
Add drug addicts to that list.

It certainly begins at home, but it shouldn't end there. No matter how close parents are to kids, sex in an uncomforable subject. So education needs to extend beyond home so that kids will have other resources to turn to and people to talk to. Us adults need some education too. We need to quit telling kids that SEX is bad or dirty and then maybe the stigma would be gone and our children would feel better talking to us or someone they trust. Sex is not a bad or dirty thing and it shouldn't be taught as such. Now, i'm all for waiting until married and I do feel that should be brought into the conversation, but realisticly, even most of US, our mothers, and our grandmothers, etc. didn't wait until married, so very few teenagers are going to. So, since it's a completely natural thing, we need to discuss it as such and hopefully that will open the door to better communication and constant communication.

This isn't just about sex. Young girls are giving blow jobs by the time they are in their teens. They think it's funny.

Also, here is part of the problem: Young divorced mothers not being good role models, sleeping around, leaving the kids unsupervised (or at my house with my kids all weekend), living with men they aren't married to, and acting and looking like tramps. Mothers who fail to set any boundaries and allow their daughters to run the streets without a curfew. Kids so out of control and parents who make excuses for them.
I see a lot of young mothers who need to get their head on straight before they can parent a son or daughter. One young mother, who is the parent to my kids' friends, takes her two girls with her to meet with her old boyfriend - he is now married. Women going off for the weekend with a boyfriend. Come on. If the girls and boys see their parents behaving improperly, why shouldn't they? Most of these teen preg incidents are not good two parent homes where there is supervision and the kids are taught a moral code. Family and parenting is the answer not birth control. Besides, these preggers girls think it is fashionable to be pregnant at a young age. Just ask them! They no longer have to hide and be embarrassed like in the olden days. You may think it is a problem, but these kids don't. Society will now give them food stamps and assistance, even if they live at home.

Give my daughter birth control with my permission and I'd sue the hell out of the school district!!

Would you rather have a knock up unwed teenage daughter? I believe givining them birth control would definitely be the lesser of two evils. Of course you could do the grown up thing, and go with your daughter to get protection. You sound like one of those parents who just couldn't believe my little baby would ever have sex. I hope you don't find out the hard way.

I don't think they sound like that kind of parent; I believe he/she would like to make their own decision how certain things such as birth control are handled in their home with their child. I am not so dumb to think my child would not do it, but I do take the topic very serious and it is addressed on a regular basis in my home. How I handle it, is my choice, the most important thing is it is being handled. I do not have a right to impose my beliefs and values on your family; however when your beliefs and values are leading to government funded births it makes it my business because I am helping pay for it. Some pregnancies happen when parents are doing everything they can to stop it, but more times than not, it happens for just the reasons listed above. Once it happens it seems to be glorified and there is no glory in it. I hear stories about big weddings while kids are in high school, I don't see the glory in it, I guess other parents do. I wonder if those same parents will pay the divorce attorney too.

Curious is indeed wrong about my famuily. Maybe, I stepped on his/her toes with my comments. My children and I discuss what is going on with their friends and their relationships. Many of the kids who visit are troubled. One doesn't like to stay at home very much because her mother remarried and the new husband makes the daughter uncomfortable. He isn't doing anything to her, but a man in the house when there wasn't one for a long time makes the girl nervous. She has mentioned to my daughter how sickening it is to hear them moaning and groaning at night. This girl is 12 years old. If she wasn't at my home where there are two parents involved in activities and their lives, where would she be? The girl's mother has always been busy looking for a man to marry and left this kid to fend for herself. She came here with way too much make-up and clothes that were inappropriate for a 12 year old. My kids have taught her how to dress and once in a while I treat them all to a girls' day at a spa in Blue Ridge.

My children will likely have sex before marriage, but not out of desperation or a fad. The school will not interfere by supplying birth control. The grown up thing is not to offer birth control to your minor children but to teach them to use good common sense and self-respect. My girls have a lot of self-respect and confidence. They have goals and I doubt that a penis will prevent either from attaining those goals. They know the rewards are plenty.

Good grief are we twelve on here? First of all most all kids have heard their parents involved in romance. If her mom is married, the daughter needs to learn a few facts of life. What is her Mom and Step Dad suppose to do rent a hotel room. As far as your kids go, I hope they turn out like you expect.

Most kids out there are having sex and for you to say "mandatory for all girls under eighteen that has started her period" what does that fix? Nothing how about all of the STD's out there birth control does not stop them only stops a pregnancy if they are taken correctly. How about the boy it takes two to tango!!!!

I'm assuming you are a man rather than a woman.
Self-respecting parents do not let their kids hear them thumping and humping. That is disgusting. I never heard my parents, grandparents, or any family members involved in romance.I was blessed to have decent parents.

You need to get over your self. Walls can only block so much noise. Most kids have at least walked in on their parents at least once(parents did learn to lock the door after that). That was many years ago at Christmas time. I was young and was told after 12 oclock I could open my presents. So at 12:01 I bounced in to parents bed room to get permission..... I leave the details out. But needless to say they locked their bedroom afterwards.

We have kids, we have sex, we are very aware when our kids are in the house not to make noise. I would think hearing your parents thumping and humping on a normal basis is not normal. Sex without our kids in the house is a lot different. My kids have walked in on us once, yes it was humiliating for them and us, but we don't make that mistake twice. I think what is being talked about is not a normal oops situation. Anyways we are way off topic. The reason kids are out of control is starting at home, when I hear about a 14 year old having a baby and her parents are proud grandparents, that is not a proud moment. Of course love the baby, help the child raising the child, but this town is turning into an glorified reality show of teen moms and we have parents are walking around bragging about the blessing it is for them. Their kids lives are ruined and they are glorifying it to all the other kids, not just the teen mom, but the teen moms parents, look at Facebook or your kids page, you will see for yourself.

And the unmarrieds proudly announce publish their separate names with a pic of their babies. Sometimes half the announcements in the paper are from parents unmarried. A proud day for children out of wedlock.
