even if its a troll, its still good advice

OK - this is a bit bizzare to me. From what I remember about using condoms, it was both people's fluid on them (2 sides you know) and if the woman takes it off and touches her self, then she could get pregnant (in theory). And isn't the "correct" way to use them to remove them ASAP and wash your hands? Thus solving most "fluid" associated problems????

Though PP suggestions about practicing puting them on some thing ahead of time is a very good idea.

Good for you that your son feels comfortable asking you to by condoms!!!You can still get some STDs even if you use a condom. (herpes, genital warts, and etc). I would encouage him to be in a committed relationship before having sex, and postponing sex until he is at least 16 or 17 years old. Because a 16 or 17 year old makes better decisions than a 15 year old.

I don’t have children yet but I like that you have an open communication with your children.
That's so great that he came and asked you. I’ve never saw that!!! Cool boy

Wow, I am 14. I am really mature for my age, so I will tell you what I think. I think that it is better to give your son the condoms, becuase if you dont, then he could get this girl pregnant. Maybe he isnt even thinking about having sex, but knows that it might come up in the near future, and he wants to be prepared. I know if I was a mother, I would get my child condoms just so he doesnt go and do it anyway, and make a bigger mistake. I hope that helps, and I hope I sound mature. lol.

I have teenage sons....they have asked for condoms. The first time I bought them. After that, it was their job to go into the store and buy them. Meaning: I drove them to the store, went in with them, gave them the money, they picked them out and THEY alone paid for them.

We talk about everything...so there are no secrets within our home....and yes, they did have questions....thanks goodness they felt comfortable enough to ask....

14 y.o. son won't talk

I really found Sarah's reply helpful- the mature 14 y.o.! Thanks, Sarah! (or is it without the "h"?) I would love to hear from boys as well.

My 14 y.o. son is too embarassed to talk to me, though I told him, despite his protests, that when he needs condoms, I will get them for him. He isn't quite there yet, he is shy and says "you don't talk to your parents about this stuff!"

He has a friend who is a bit older than he, who is sexually active and has a girlfriend. He freely gives his friend advice, and even told me about some of it. He sounded pretty sensitive and thoughtful, and I am hoping it is a sign that he is loosening up about talking to me.

I want my son to have full & correct info about sexuality. We are homeschooling, so I wonder if any of you have good suggestions for books, etc. that aren't corny. He would never go to PP at this point.

Maybe if I go there, I can pick up some good stuff. I once tried to show him something at the local library, and he said eeuuw! Maybe he is more ready now.

Well mama, I have a 15 yr old dd and I have not had that question yet from her : and I pray it wont be here for a while. Oh, by the way dd is sitting next to me watching me type this, and OUR advice is get the condoms of course. Better to be safe than sorry. As far as the size needed maybe his dad could ask him that wonderful question. Or if dad is not around, well mama its all about you! Just make sure you talk to him about how important this situation is. My oh my, I wish you luck and I wish I could offer more advice. Do they have condoms that have different sizes in 1 box like a variety thing?
