My daughter turned 17 last month. I have always been open with her about sex. I also encouraged her to wait. I told her of the emotions involved & how much it changes things.
Hormones won out...At 16; she told me she had unprotected sex. I took her to get birth control. I was not happy about it but hoped she would make smart choices.
I am now in a situation of her being involved with a guy in his 20's. He promised my husband & I that they would wait until she was 18. I made it clear that I had already looked up the statutory rape laws for our state.
Fast forward a couple of months...
My daughter proudly announces how great sex is with him. When I tell her how upset I am; she basically tells me I am a hypocrite because I have always been so open about such things.
Why she thought it was a good idea to tell me about it is beyond my comprehension...
I am so upset that my head is throbbing. I am a wreck.
