The Sleep team’s gripe:
Yes, the old argument, better under my roof than in the gutter somewhere! What if we just educated our teens, set a good example, put their lives fairly high on our priority list and parented effectively until 18?
Do the parents like it? Is it easier to say let’s get you on the pill because we know you are interested in boys and… the rest is in the parent’s house, in their daughter’s bedroom!!
I know some girls are more ‘sexed’ than others, but surely, well respected, well rounded, busy, achieving young ladies, are not thinking that sleeping with their boyfriend at a young age is awesome.
Why don’t we try asking our teens what age they think they will let their son or daughter have sex in their house?
