    Are we going to teach our children to use contraception?

    The youth of today is engaging in risky behaviors such as early sex, multiple sex partners, commercial sex etc. They would like to test everything out of curiosity. Granting that they will engage in these risky behaviors, what are we supposed to do? Do we introduced them to contraception or no? If yes, what age do you think it is appropriate to eduvate them about protections?

    It would be  best if parents in this country would take their responsibility as a parent serious enough to make their kids first. Most parents whose kids endulge in such activities likely have paid only lip service to the importance of the relationship between themselves and their children as it relates to other aspects of their lives like; their own pleasure, their job and making more money. The reason many of the kids in this country are having these experiences at younger and younger ages is because this society has lost its moral compass. No one flinches at the repugnant trash hollywood puts out or what can be easily found on network TV. Many of today's parents have no business getting pregnant because they underestimate the scope of the task raising a child can be. It is the parent, if anyone, and the parent ALONE who should bear the responsibility of teaching a kid right from wrong. If you're going to try to remedy the problem after they've already started having sex, you're fighting a losing battle; by then, it's a little too late. Get them when they are young or don't have them.

    "Our" children?  I don't have any (at the moment, anyway, that I know of).  But YOU should definitely teach yours to do that.  AND, if it fails, teach them to get ABORTIONS! We don't need more "accidental" future gang-bangers and crack hos.

    Start teaching them about age 10 or so when they start playing "politician and intern".

    Why not start with morality. Teach our children values, respect, care and real love. Are we pushing our children away from childhood into the crazy world that just wants everything and wants it now.
