My daughter is 12. She thinks everyone her age is having sex. I've tried telling her that it isn't true. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? She's been begging me to put her on birth control. I know I need to but I guess I'm just not ready for my baby to grow up. I've told her that if she has sex then she's taking the risk of getting pregnant or an STD. She said, "if I get pregnant, I'll just give it up for adoption." I showed her pictures on STD's and nothing seems to help. I know she isn't having sex b/c we only let her hang out with certain kids in the neighborhood and most of the time they play at our house or ride bikes around the block and I can see them or she is at school. I'm at a loss on this....
