Teen Sex
As a teenage mother so many years ago, I have to say that most of the problem is a lack of being open with your children. My mother's approach was to leave a book on my bed and not say anything. I think helping our children realize and understand what the consequences are as well as being open to talk about it is a huge step. While I doubt that it will stop it, I think it is a step in that direction. As far as a certain age, I don't think I would even want to guess, but I don't believe that we can stop curosity, I do think they need the knowledge behind it.

antiquated ideas of sex
Its interesting how adults can have different ideas about sex: why where when to have it or not but when the subject of teen sex morality and integrity and health seem to be the only argument of why teens should or shouldn't be open about what the are doing any way.

A lot of activities for pleasure go on. However the law can’t pass it. Sam mentions the understanding of the meaning of it even in the twenties. In this way they’re immature in the earlier teens. In fact the good date’s a marvelous training ground for all relationships. Indeed it’s the prelude for whatever they choose in adulthood. BCA, BCA, Bill*s RJJst

I would rather have an open conversation on the merits of waiting to share one's self when an appropriate age of understanding what it means to give of one's self! I think many even in their 20's are out for their own pleasure and not the true fulfillment of expression in a long term monogamous relationship! But, I really don't know when it is a good time! sam

How can you make hard and fast rules about this? IMO the best thing parents can do is let their children know that sex is a topic that they are willing to discuss with them in a level-headed and informative kind of way.
It could be that most Blogit members live in the U.S.A., but there are others (e.g. yours truly) who live in other countries where there are perhaps different attitudes to this question.

Kid's and Sex.
Hmm, that's a can of worms you've opened there, my friend. Personally, if my daughter came home and said, "Dad, John's coming over after the movies and we're going to have sex, so I hope his grunting and my moaning won't keep you and mom awake." I think it is safe to say that if John came over, carting a six-pack of condoms and wearing a smile, he'd be wearing his ass for a hat within minutes of entering the house. Let kids grow up, let them be innocent in the ways of the world, until they can handle life's pressures. Let7s not screw up their minds too early. Great post
