I am strongly considering birth control for my 12 year old, one that is discreet so she does not know what it is like a daily vitamin(pill) for obvious reasons, and one without hormones,is there such a thing? I am open to questions/concerns of course and other options. I can talk and scare her until I am blue in the face but in our city, I am watching it happen to young girls who are not even allowed to leave the house even to attend school,it's almost as if there is something in the air that's causing teen pregnancy (sounds silly). I was able to keep my son a virgin until 18 and beyond, but my daughter....help.

I dont think you should sneak anything. I think that education is the best prevention. Teach her about her body and her period, Talk with her often!

The only non hormonal birth controls I have knowledge of are insertional ones (I think she'd figure that out...lol) and not having sex.



I would not 'sneak' a child birth control... ever. If you are watching it happen to young girls then I am assuming she is as well... The BEST you can do IS talk about it... keep the lines of communication open and honest... and pray.. a lot.
