I don't know. They can have as much sex as they want whern either you are not home, or at the other house when the parents are out. So...at least just make sure the door is open. That, as a parent of a teen age daughter, makes me feel a bit better...that is the rule at my house.

You have to actually be contributing, and they have to be able to prove it. If you allow your children to drink in your house and buy the booze that can be proven. But 2 teens sneaking off and having without you knowing is not something they can prove you had knowledge of.

It actually has to be a delinquent act as well.
Sex is not illegal, if two 14 year olds have sex it is not illegal.
If a 14 year old and 21 year old have sex, it IS illegal.

And a parent being told by their child (while the parent isn't home) that they are going out to meet up with friends and instead having a bf/gf over and getting it on on a couch in the basement is beyond the parents control...unless they tether their kid to a leash and take them everywhere.

Permissive parents are not going to get charged with contributing to delinquency of a minor solely based on that they let their son/daughter have their gf/bf in their bedroom with the door closed. Some parents REALLY trust their kids and their kids are little con artists and some parents are just oblivious, stupid is not a crime btw.

Yep that too.
They think you have to be 18 and they think they will run into trouble at check out.

Those clerks don't care what you do, how old you are, what you buy(unless it really is an item you have to be 18 or 21 for) and they won't stop you.

They can't call the cops, they can't call your parents, they have NO power over what you do and CANNOT refuse to sell to you.
