Hmmm...now this is a good question...but I am extremely biased so my opinion may not count.
I am a father of 4 girls, ages 11-18, so now we have a clear case of bias established...let me get down to business...
I think it is every parents duty (or should be anyway) to protect their children and instill in them values that are important...now I am not talking
about societal expectations...but rather moral goodness and common sense.
So on that note, I think there are a lot of circumstances that would dictate a teenage child having sex in the home...for instance: Does the family
follow Christinian beliefs and do the hold the Bible as a guide to what is expected of them as Christians? In this case having pre-marital sex would
be taboo either in the home or not.
Do we have a society that promotes sex at every turn? Yes, absolutely we do, and do we just want our children to be "normal" according to
society's standards? I would hope not, at least I don't want my children to conform to what is considered normal...having sex at home...well sure
if it is their own home and with their husbands...but that is not what we are discussing here at all.
Do we attempt to build a bubble around our children and keep all the evils of the world at bay? No way, that is foolishness at it's best...we have
to support our children and hope that the things that we value carry over to them and they can make better decisions than we made.
What I did as a young man is not what I want my children to do...hypocrite...yes absolutely and I think every parent is.
Bottom line...No way! Not in my house as a underage minor out of wedlock...not going to happen (at least it won't be allowed) and that is my
Thanks for letting me share!
