This morning Christian and I had a conversation about her being legal. I asked her to define her being legal to do what?
This is her answer and I quote: "If I decided (which I wouldn't) to go have sex with a Twenty year old man , You could not do anything about it." My opinion to that statement was " You can not vote,buy alcohol or cigarettes as legal adult, but you think you can make decisions on having sex with men?" her " Yes because I am legal."
I stated to her just because she will be turning 18 in Oct. doesn't truly make her a responsible adult. She hasn't ever had to do anything really for herself.
If that is true being "legal" at seventeen ,then they need to be able to vote,buy alcohol & cigarettes . Having Sex to me is a bigger decision to me than voting is now days! Voting won't kill you!! Get you pregnant! Or hand you and STD although some would say BHO is like a case of herpes!
I was legal @ seventeen ,I was married and 3 months away from being 18 . Shortly after my Marriage I was pregnant with her! I try to explain things are different in her life. She Has many dreams that do not include Children at this point. I can tell you something I have taught my Girls better . If it did happen, we would figure it out! That decision would never include the morning after pill, the horse pill or any form of abortion!
