Sex and Contraceptives

In my line of work, I have encountered several female pre-teens and teenagers on Contraceptives.

Christians, Muslims, and Asians alike. It got me wondering as to whether the sex talk isn’t working or parents just don’t trust their kids enough.

If you introduced your twelve-year-old daughter to a contraceptive, isn’t this just giving them permission to one, engage in sex at such a tender age and two, do so without protection?

Given that this does not protect them from STIs, Would you consider making that decision for your child? And why?

  1. I rather have them introduced to that knowledge and be supportive enough to provide them with protection at that age to prevent dealing with unplanned pregnancy or attempted unsafe abortion. We can make decisions on their behalf but we cannot control what they choose to do.

  3. No! I won't allow my child to use contraceptives. As a parent, I would always make my daughter understand the importance of chastity in women. Educating her on the dangers of engaging in sex before marriage would be my priority so that she will be able to protect her dignity and self respect.

  1. This is a very challenging chore to parents because if they yeach their teenage children on contraception, it is like they are allowing them to have sex at such a younger age. If they don't, there children always end up messing. It is a very tricky responsibility for parents.

  1. Peer pressure among teens is stronger now than it has ever been. The best thing a parent can do is protect the future of their children in whichever way they deem fit.
