    Sheesh. Gotta luv you guys.

    Saying that having a chld will alter your life forever is a mild understatement.

    My heart hurts when I think of all the help these kids - all three of them - will need and how small their chances are for even a satisfactory outcome.

    People need to educate their children better about sex. I think a lot of parents these days hope that kids will somehow educate themselves but teenagers are a) filled with hormones and b) stupid.


    EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN, PLEASE!

Or at least, this is how it may come across to her, instead of us taking precautions for her wreckless behavior.

    Also, she may NOT have gone 'all the way'. We're uncertain. Furthermore, my mother takes them just fine, but I have a lot of issues when taking anything with hormones in it, and we're not sure how it'll effect her. I wonder how badly I'll derail the thread with this.
    My sister became sexually active when she was about 16. We talked to her about her decision and then took her to a doctor to discuss her options.

    There are so many different kinds of birth control, a doctor can help her find one that won't mess with her hormones too much. I'm sure there's a Planned Parenthood or similar reproductive health clinic near you filled with experts who can provide your sister with scientifically accurate information.

    It is ultimately her decision to make. You can make sure she makes an informed and educated decision.

    Here is where I differ. I don't think it's her decision yet. If she is active, she'd have been active since late 13 early 14. She didn't start at 16. I don't have anything solid, nor do I think she does this frequently.. but I can't ignore warning flags. It's not her decision yet, she's not old enough for that. She isn't 16. When she starts getting rights, like that of working, driving, etc. then we can talk.. If she is, yes we need to take precautions. But good night.. it's all too much for me.

    I just think that if she's going to make the decision anyway (and she is), might as well educate her so she doesn't do something stupid.

    I lost my virginity at 13 and in retrospect I was WAY too young. But that didn't stop me from having sex anyway. I'm just glad that my mother explained how condoms worked when I was 11 so that I was just a sexually active 13 year old and not a pregnant 13 year old.
