What 7 things about sex you want to teach your teenage girl?
Education on sex is very important for all especially for teenagers. Sometimes they are misguided by their friends. As a parent it is our duty to teach them properly about sex.
(1) Don't have sex until you are emotionally, mentally, & psychological mature enough to understand both the positives & ramifications for indulging in sex.
(2) Don't let your boyfriend pressure or guilt you into have sex. Sex is a mutual activity by both partners, not one so-called dominant partner.
(3) Don't have sex because it is the "IN" thing to do or to gain popularity. Such things have more than negative ramifications.
(3) The importance of effective birth control & abortion(if birth control doesn't work).
(4) It is best to have sex when one is in her 20s-that way one knows about her body, is mature about sexual matters, & men are hopefully more mature at that stage.
(5) If one isn't sure......DEFINITELY DON'T.
(6) Starting teaching about sex early. The more teens know about sex, the less they will indulge early. Being open to any questions teens may have.
(7) Show them love & affection. Give them individualized parental time & attention. Teens who have individualized parental time & attention are less likely to indulge in sex than teens who have very little or no parental love, time, attention & affection.
"In a perfect world you wouldn't have sex until you were emotionally mature enough and financially secure enough to cope with any potential consequence that might arise from having sex.
In other words you would focus on your education, establishing a career, and street smarts. However I am not naïve and understand my words may fall on deaf ears. After all I too was once a teenager.
I understand in most instances parents and teenagers live in a "parallel universe" which rarely intersects unless there is trouble.
My hope is that as my daughter you would come and talk with me before making any major decisions. As your parent I am not only responsible for your welfare but I love you very much.
Always remember you can talk to me about any and everything.
When it comes to sex:
"The kiss is the persuasion to lower invasion."
Be aware of your surroundings and any cues that may reveal a young man's (true motives) for meeting up with you such as parking in a secluded area, attempts to ply you with alcohol or drugs, candlelight or fireplace in darken room with music...etc
1. Always use birth control plus condoms (if you insist on having sex)
2. Never allow anyone to pressure or trick you into having sex.
3. Never confuse sex with love. (Boys and men don't.)
4. Never have sex with a hidden agenda such as to hold onto him.
5. It's unlikely your teenage boyfriend will be the man you marry.
6. Having sex does not make you an adult.
7. Have a "mate selection criteria" and be extremely selective.
In the U.S. today the average person loses their virginity by age 17. The average first marriage for women is age 27 and for men it's 29.
Clearly that would suggest on average most people have 10 years or more of sexual activity prior to getting married.
Essentially that means the person one loses their virginity to is not likely going to be the person they end up marrying!."
One thing you've missed. As a parent you have to inform your teenage girl about sexual transmitted diseases.
Rezwanul, I mentioned always use condoms as part of my #1. Aside from abstaining from sex condoms are the best way to avoid transmitting STDs.
1. 7 of 10 people have had, do have, or will have an STD (or STI)
2. Every time you have sex, you give a part of yourself away. Don't spread yourself around.
3. Birth control will not work if you do not use it.
4. Use birth control exactly as directed. Being late for one depo shot can actually increase the chance of pregnancy for some girls. So can using the wrong size condom or forgetting to take the pill. Always follow the directions carefully.
5. The only sure way to not get pregnant or an STD is abstinence. Always use a condom.
6. Never assume he has protection. Always assume he doesn't.
7. A guy will never respect a girl that gives in too easy.
