I have mixed emotions ...

I have mixed emotions about this too.

my daughter is 13 and I ...

my daughter is 13 and I know she not even REMOTELY interested in boys THAT way, she's really a good kid, except for the part where I washed her I-pod, but she gets good grades, is NO trouble and helps when I need it. she's really shy too, so I think I'm good for a while with her BUT that other "thing" I have, who turned 5 today, WOO-HOO, she is gonna give me the BLUES. I can see it already! she's so sassy and smart-mouthed!
hopefully she'll calm down as she gets older!

you're right and I was ...

you're right and I was brought up that way too, most of what I learned (about sex), I learned from HOME, my mom! I'll make sure to raise mine the same.

I agree, What my kids are ...

I agree, What my kids are learning (and will learn) about sex is being taught be me and my husband.

What's sad is that they must see and actual need to be giving out birth control to 11-13 year olds.

I know we all think that kids are way too young for sex at that age (which they ARE) but it does happen. When I worked at the local hospital, I saw girls as young as 10 going in to give birth.

what was i doing when i ...

what was i doing when i was 13?? playing in the trees, having snowball fights, playing with my toys, riding my bike on the "death trails" with my friends....i never had an interest in sex. heck, i still dont. lol. i think this is disgusting and terrible that MIDDLESCHOOL pregnancy/sex is SO common that a school issues birth control. thats just gross.

I had my first "real kiss" ...

I had my first "real kiss" at 13, that's about it, a virgin til I was 18.

hey, i was 18, too!! my ...

hey, i was 18, too!! my first REAL kiss was at about 16 or so. i dont think spin the bottle counts.

ooh.... i think it ...

ooh....

i think it would be fun to play it as adults.

LOL, I never played ...

LOL, I never played either!
so you spin the bottle and kiss whomever it points to, right?
what's that when you go in the closet, seven minutes in heaven it's called? is that another game or more of spin the bottle?

wow, I'm a dork...

wow, I'm a dork...

walter, maybe ...

walter, maybe *wink*

spin the bottle (how WE played it) we sat in a circle. boy girl boy girl, etc. one person, usually the host/ess, spins the bottle. it lands on a opp. sex, they kiss. the other person now spins the bottle and if it lands on the person they just kissed, they have to french kiss. 3rd time, well, it never got to that. lol.

ive never played 7 minutes in heaven. i saw it on family guy, though.

what if it lands on the ...

what if it lands on the SAME sex?

I'm so bad...

That could be really ...

That could be really interesting.......or really gross ;)

I think it is a REALLY bad ...

I think it is a REALLY bad idea. Do you really want to start messing up a child's hormonal cycle at the young age of 12? Do you really think they will take the pill as described? It's hard enough getting them to take their daily Flintstone vitamin pill. Shots would scare them to death. I think the lawsuits could bankrupt that local government. Just dumb dumb dumb. If they are going to have sex at that age, birth control will do very little to stop pregnancies. Birth control takes discipline to be effective.

This is a tough one. With ...

This is a tough one. With the internet making porn accessible to all children they are becoming sexually active at an alarming rate and at an alarmingly young age. Parents SAY their kids do not see porn on the internet. Yes they do. Period. I don't care how much YOU think you are in control of that computer at home, they're seeing it elsewhere. And they are acting on what they see. I have worked two cases in the last 18 months involving a sexual assault where the suspects were 6 and 5. The CPS people and the forensic interviewers found no sexual abuse in the home. It was later determined the children learned about the things they did to their victims from the internet. However, giving young children birth control encourages them to be even more sexually active. I have heard middle school girls say that they might as well be sexually active since their parents have them on the pill. I think the bottom line is parents need to parent. The least important aspect of parenting is feeding and watering the children. A retarded third grader could care for a child on that level. It's the rest of the parenting responsibilities that the majority of todays parents don't want to be bothered with. Putting the kids on the pill is just one more way of lessoning the responsibility of a parent. But do we want MORE babies having babies? I personally would rather pay to put young people on the pill than pay for all the welfare, drug use, alcoholism problems, etc etc etc that teen age parents end up charging us for. There's no right answer; just that parents need to start parenting. If they don't I believe we should limit the number of children to one per household. That would slash the trillions we're paying for welfare, with it's included free medical care, and all the other costs related to the career welfare drains on society. ( not to include the very few that actually need welfare and only use it long enough to get off their feet)

and dawn, if you land on ...

and dawn, if you land on the same sex, you kiss the opposite sex thats sitting to their right, i think. its been a while since i played. lol. but i wonder if you had to kiss WHOEVER male or female the bottle landed on. he he he.

now THAT would be a REAL ...

now THAT would be a REAL interesting game! LOL, girls kissing girls, guys kissing guys...NOT! LOL!

My feelings are that this ...

My feelings are that this is very wrong. My husband and I have always been straight up with our kids about sex, sexual purity, why we believe what we do, the pros/cons, etc. Our oldest son (20) is now out on his own, and he thinks the world is his oyster. Even though he no longer lives with us, we haven't stopped our parenting; he never hears from us that he should be "careful," he hears from us that he "should not." We continue to take every opportunity we're given and use it as a teachable moment. By his own admission, he is still a virgin, but (also by his own admission) if he had wanted to lose his virginity by now, he could have.

He is well aware of how his life can change by giving in to the physical desire for sex. He "says" he won't be stupid, but, yeah, we've all thought that before, right?

Anyway, while he is 20 and certainly legally an adult responsible for his own decisions, we DO NOT promote safe sex, we promote abstinence. We just keep praying for him, that he will remember what he's been taught (and why) BEFORE he gets himself in a compromising situation.

good for you AND him nestle!!!
