What You Said About Talking to Your Teens About Sex
“I tell them that sex can be a beautiful thing when you're with the right person. That I would prefer for them to wait until they are married and that peer pressure will come eventually, but if they ever decide that sex is something they want to do before marriage, they should come talk to me so we can go over all the pros and cons again and make sure they are prepared for what sex brings. They know that when a girl hits puberty she can then have children if she’s having sex. I've also pulled up pictures of STDs on the Internet and signed them up for sexual education in school.” -Serenity
