My youngest son has his first girlfriend.
 
 


Young love. How sweet. He even changed his status on FB.

 

Smart too. School ends in 4 weeks and they wont be going to the same school next year. So a short first relationship is a good thing.

 

Right? Right?

 

I dont think I'm ready for this.

Congrats I guess - how old is he? (And how old is she?)

Do you know the girl or the family?

Aww how sweet! Will he see her over the summer? If they don't break up before then.

He is 14 and I guess she is about the same. They are in the same classes in school.

I've seen her at school things. I dont know much about her.

He hasnt asked to take her out yet. So far "dating" is lunch and afternoon break.

Yes. I had a nice little talk with him about respect and responsibility. It may have embarassed him a little but who else is going to have that talk with him?

Aww how sweet. I hope you don't have to deal with a heartbroken son when school ends if they can't see each other over the summer.

 I dont know.

I have made myself a promise that I will not push one way or another with my kids and their relationships, unless I see blatant harm being done. If he wants to see her and take her out he will have to work to earn the money and of course make sure I can drive them. Because he cant drive himself yet.

 He is generally a happy go lucky kind of guy. So probably wont be a big deal.

You aren't ready for this. No one ever is.

Lily - one thing I would emphasize if I were there. If these two get "intimate" (however you define that) and if anything goes wrong, society punishes the male. Pretty much absolutely.

If they're alone, she can later say he did something wrong to her, and he'll have no good defense. If he gets her pregnant, it's 100% not-his-call if she wants to carry to term but 50% his responsibility if she decides to. And heaven help him if their ages put him on the wrong side of the statutory rape laws.

Bottom line - if anything goes wrong, he loses.

I'm not implicating this particular girl as such; I'd just want to know that if I were 14.

I know what you are saying Papa. And it is times like this I really wish I had picked a better father for my kids. But that is water under the bridge.

Anyway. I talked to him about only being 14 and he didnt want to have to pay for anything for the next 18 yrs. And that he would if he did get a girl pregnant. That he would be responsible.

I also told him to keep his pants zipped and he wouldnt have to worry about it.

And if and when they do go out I will make sure he has protection in his pocket.

I was up front with him about diseases and I think I put a little fear of the unknown in him. At least for now.

And no Husker. I wont ever be ready.

While you're speaking with him about "protections", also get him a box of "VCF"

http://www.amazon.com/CONTRACEPTIVES-FILM-Pack-APOTHECUS-PHARMACEUTICAL/dp/B004JCHXF0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1366840334&sr=8-2&keywords=vcf+contraceptive+film

 

which will be with the condoms in every drug store.

VCF (Vaginal Contraceptive Film) can be safely kept in a wallet (unlike condoms) and provides a second barrier method of contraception that (also unlike condoms) won't break.
