So true. In my two marriages, it was just that way (sort of). My ex and I started to have sex shortly after we started dating. She was from a strick family. Then I found out why she really wanted sex. She had been doing it with her father from the time she was 13 yrs old. My wife came from a family who had a controlling mother. My wife started to pet and fondle when she was 14. By the time she was 16, she would let just about any male fondle her but no intercourse.

It isn't surprising that parents who lie to their children wind up with teenagers who don't listen to them.

I knew a girl in elementary who wasnt able to do anything. She was jehovah witness. I could tell she wasnt happy, but she always acted as if it was okay for things to be that way! anyways when she started high school, she just would listen to her mother anymore. She started sleeping around and I mean having ménage-a-trois, some serious stuff she was like 12-13! Anyways now she's much older and she knows she made some poor choices she's no longer jehovah witness... If you shelter your kids too much they will rebel and if you lie to them they will learn to do the same... explain them certain things and let them make their own mistakes... they will learn from them thats for sure

Obviously. You tell your kid "NO DONT DO THAT ITS BAD" and nothing else or why not to do it, your kid will probably do it. Once again it shows sex EDUCATION is needed. Without proper sexual education, morality means nothing.

Nothing makes a kid want to do something more than when it's not allowed.

So many kids rebel against their parents because being bad feels good. My parents have never been strict with me or my sister. They never just stated not to do something. Instead they gave educated advice on what they felt was right, and left me and my sister to make our own choices.

Niether me nor my sister have rebelled against our parents wishes. We grew up with an open view on many things and our own morals and values.

You guys sound like a very reasonable and responsible family.

i applaud your parents. That is the same appraoach I have taken with my children. I explained things, offered advice and offered to buy condoms if they decide to have sex. In that sex conversation I made sure to explain there are worse things than getting pregnant! If a pregnancy occurs I expect them to be responsible- male or female! My son is very active at 17 and not protected most of the time and my daughter16 is not active at all. But I have a very open relationship with them to the point that my son often gives TMI about his encounters.LOL I want them to be honest and open than to sneak and do. I was very sheltered until I went to college and should I put it nicely ...lost well went coo coo for coco puffs! LOL

Boy, I was somewhat different, my folks split up when i was 10, and my mom had very little control over me. I was okay mostly, but capable of being a very bad boy. When i was 13-17 ,my friends and i were a plague on the area of s. chicago we lived in. Wonder what might have changed in me, had i come up more normal?.....P.S., I later became a good cop, i always thought because i had survived before.lol.

While being too strict can often times make kids rebel and do it anyway, I find little evidence of this being true.

I've seen lenient families with wild kids as well and strict parents with well behaved kids. I think a lot of it is inherited. If their parents were wild their kids have a greater chance of being the same.

All religious Jewish girls are taught to not do anything with boys until we are married. If you go to one of our singles weekends, all the kids are screwing each other like mad!

I agree, that sometimes it probably is inherited. But both my parents were pretty wild and bad when they were younger, and niether me nor my sister have ever been that way.

Pretty lenient. They offer me and my sister advice as to how they hope we'll behave and respond to situations, and left us to make our own decisions.

Maybe you took after your grandparents. There's always exceptions to every rule. I am surprised one of you didn't turn out wild if your parents both were. Of course look at Frank Zappa's kids. They let them do whatever they wanted and they turned out okay.

It's easily possible. Thinking back, to the best of my knowledge, my grandparents were pretty good people growing up. Better than my parents at least.

I agree with you though. It probably is hereditary in most cases.
