Hmmmmm, I have seen lot's of teens in the teen chat since I have been here. For instance maybe start it out like we did the Mens and Womens. IMHO~I think it is a good idea. Yes they are are very mature and do seek out our advice which I am sure that will continue, but this gives them the Opportunity as we have as Men and Women to seek help from there peers. Regarding maybe the same issues. We can make it a smaller forum, but with some of the same threads. Having them see what it's like for others there age. You never know some teens may not feel comfortable posting in the forums when there are mainly adults in it. Having peers to communicate with and not adults sometimes is easier for them to do. BTW~Alot of this is feedback I asked for from my daughter and my 17 yr old neice.

I hope this makes sense? This is only my opinion ok.

IMO - I do not think that we need to be any less of an adult when it comes to sex than when we talk about any given subject here at PC..... for most teens want an honest and open discussion about topics that are apart of their own life, and sex is no different.

I personally feel that we just need to carry on as decent adults and to talk as we normally would, with respect and consideration for all - and I feel that it was my honest and open talk about sex with my own two sons that got my oldest to the age of 21 before he had sex and that has kept my 17 from waiting as well - They knew the facts, therefore, they did not feel the need to go out and experiment in order to find the answers.


LoVe,

I posted a reminder at the top of this forum about watching out for our teen viewers. Hopefully that will help.

I agree with Rhapsody, my parents started talking about sex and explaining it nearly from the start. I was three when I first started asking and they answered. Apparently I thought it was hillarious. I'm really greatful my parents started so soon, it made talking about sex not so difficult when we were teens. I wasn't curious and I waited till I was 18 and in a relationship for over 2 years.
