if they are teaching that sex is bad, then they're already off to a bad start. context is everything.

Yeah, Bristol's being pushed into sending a mixed message here; on one hand, "I love my son; he's the absolute best thing that ever happened to me", and on the other hand, "Don't have sex; you'll get pregnant and it will destroy your life."

Yet her life hardly appears to be destroyed, does it?

Abstinence is not the way to go. Fear is, I tell you you must scare the kids in not wanting sex under 18. Both my girls were told, based on your family history, sex before 18 is deadly, cancer is high in the uterus in our family and if you want that have sex, otherwise hold off until at LEAST 18. I was a young mom, they know the scary truth.

Well, I mean... I'm sure most teens would be capable of ascertaining that many people have sex before age 18, and don't die as a result.

Yes I agree and half my post was in jest. But I have informed my girls what having sex before their uterus forms will do to them. As a result in family bio
