halo daddy & mommies,
my personal opinion is,
it is useless for us to debate here on tis issue, coz we dont knw happen in our kids generation . . .
How about tis,
If both boy & gal have 100% preventn of getting pregg, or in future, we can 100% contraceptv mtd, would you allow you underage children to have casual sex ??
In SEX, I think the girl have the decision for this...whether to do or not to do. in my earlier reply the decision will really depend upon the girl. Because boys will automatically carress & do things, but if the girl will resist the temptation...definitely no sex will happen.
Like me even i'm 18 , I was also force to grow up . I didn't have my parents by my side over the years though . And I've learn to be independant without relying on them . At that point of time I felt that I didn't have something of my own . Hence I decided to start a family regardless my tender age , at least is something call my own . Agree also when it comes to family upbringing is another factor .
Whenever I think of sex education for dear son in future, headache man. Nowadays cant really blame guys looking for a fling too. Girls are indulging in too much casual sex. I've heard of girls going up to guy friends' house, drink till drunk then swim naked in front of the guys...
haha.. we r living in the 21st century, thats y our PM Lee mention about an increased of pregnency in teens.. and what we parents can do to avoid our children getting into this mess? Only teach and advise them? We need to face the reality, i believe the society of our kids in future will be even more open than now.
Omg.. Hot Topic!! Where Hav I Gone?!
this is a rough subject.
i am one of them.
i was 17 wen i was preg.
and my cousin is 17 now and preg..
most of my friends are sexually active.
if you tink sg is such a sex-shy country, but you wont believe it that the teenagers knows how much 2hrs in a hotel cost. and which hotel cheaper.
i was bought up thinking only married ppl hav babies because they sleep in the same bed. not sex, sleep together. but back then it was wen i was still in pri sch wen my friends and i discussed about babies.
until sec school wen we all get excited about the sex education which was merely discussing about the diff parts of our body. i alwis thought wouldnt it be better if my teacher showed porn or a kamasutra position, then i would, "ooouuuhh,, so thats love making"
now i hav a daughter, who i deft dont want her to turn out like me. if she gets pregnant while she is a teenager, i'll abort it. cruel?
if she grows up and is sexually active, i will ask her to bring a condom & even take pills.
better b safe than sori..
i agree with julee, i honestly dont want my to follow my footsteps. yah, i'll tell her to get condoms...she can have sex if she reached that age, just dont get pregnant before marriage...i'll let her know that mummy made a mistake n she shldnt....honestly, though she is only 6 mths old, im already worrying about it.
Now , teenage pregnancy is in the trend . I wonder how it will be like in the near future . *Shakes head*
