not a bad thing
I bought the first one for my daughter when she was 12, told her what it was and why to use it, and then I gave her allowance a lift - NEVER skip it because of money!!!
of course you should buy them condoms. sex is an natural impulse driven by thousands of years of evolution. if you dont assist in teaching or providing options for safe sex, then they will just do it anyway, but without the precaution to prevent pregnancy and std's. trust me, its better to be over active and safe, then not safe at all.
If you properly teach you child about safe sex, why would the child go out and do something as reckless and risky as having unprotected sex? If a child would go have unprotected sex just because they aren't being provided with protection, then that says a lot about the parenting.
the fist part is almost correct. i meant that if you DONT teach them, then that will be the response. the will have sex regardless, not because of parenting, but because of biology and hormonal responses that enforce the instinct. you teach sexuality the same way you teach someone what food they like. you dont. it just comes naturally regardless.
We know the urge will come, but you have the choice to be responsible and safe. Parenting plays a big part in decision making skills.
Evidently you're not a mother?
Like I said, I'm am not a parent but I am an close observer and I have learned from other people's mistakes.
I don't have any kids myself. But as a Scout leader I have had parents come up to me and tell me what movies their kids are allowed at home. Cause on sleep overs at the hall we'll put on a movie. And here I am trying to tell them that their kids are far more curious and knowledgeable then the G rating they seem to think they are.

Tell your friend MYOB.
Better than unsafe sex.<br />
Good for you
yes, I would say very sensible :)
It's your life & family, don't watch it from Society's perspective.
No, because it can come off as approval for the behavior.
Sex is normal, wonderful, and desirable, and I very much approve that my daughter has a sexual life. IF I did consider sex a sin (which I don't) I'd still reccommend condoms - no AIDS, no kids when you're too young for it. Not to teach your children about anticonception and sexual diseases is the worst sin of all!!!
Yes, I'm aware sex is normal, wonderful, and desirable... at the right time. There are risk to having sex, this is why I think only mature, responsible, independent adults should engage in it. I personally feel like you shouldn't be having sex until you are under your own roof, pay your own bills, and put food in your own mouth. I would not be okay with my child taking that risk under my roof. I know it is a natural urge, but it is still something that can be controlled.
How old is your daughter?
Never said it was gonna be easy, but it's controllable.
