Teen Fathers: What is your advice to your sons about the consequences of having sex?


Sex! Sex! Sex?


Sexuality is an important aspect of life, and adolescence is a critical period in the development of sexual values, attitudes, and behavior. The average age for a young man to lose his virginity is 18 years old putting him at a somewhat challenging age. He's physically changing, mentally shifting gears and wanting to explore life.


But how do you advise your son that having sex has consequences! He's got his friends in one ear and you his parent in the other!


Kids today know the equation sex = kid/disease BUT do they really understand? I only ask because with more resources and funds being pored into educating teens about the risk of having sex prematurely they're still having sex!


If you're a parent what advice could you lend to another parent?

I would drop him off at my buddy's house (he has four kids, two of which were conceived while still in high school) and let him see just how big of a hassle it is trying to raise kids when you have yet to experience life. I would also encourage him to not get to serious with high school and even college sweethearts as this is usually how our youth end up pregnant(by getting to caught up in young love) . Finally I think my last step would be to encourage my boy to date girls that have long term goals for themselves and encourage him to see his own goals through.

The only thing I can think of, is what I told my little brother when he was 13. I told him, "You know you can get a girl pregnant, and u know that means all of your money and time will not be yours until that child is 18 years old, not until you're 18 years old!
