I have a 15 year old daughter who is a freshman in high school. She is a very mature, intellectual girl. But she confessed to me a few days ago that she has been sexually active since the age of 12. I was shocked mainly because me and my daughter have a very open relationship and she usually confides in me about anything going on in her life. I am a very understanding parent and I would never judge my daughter. After she told me, I went and bought her condoms. Not that I am telling my daughter to go have sex whenever and with anyone, but I can't stop her from doing it if she's been active for the past three years, she isn't going to stop now. I know that sex is completely normal for teens. I want her to be protected and be aware of the consequences of sex, rather than scolding her for doing it. I feel like I did the safe thing, but how would you feel if it was your daughter?
