I’ve only been a mother for fifteen years (well almost!) and I don’t think its
anywhere near time for me to have the sex/condom talk with my oldest son! I mean, he’s still a child for goodness sake! Well, according to one of my girlfriends, she thinks that it has surpassed the time to have “the talk” with him! She believes that I’m way too late for having the initial talk, but that I need to talk to him about protecting himself from this point onwards. She also says that if I don’t want any grandchildren, then I also need to personally supply him with condoms! WHAT?!? When she told me that I became completely flabbergasted! I don’t know, but writing this even now has caused my heart to accelerate just a wee bit, and I’m sure my eyes are ready to pop right out of my head! I’m now sure if I’m just not ready for him to be at the point where “the talk” is needed (any parents WORSE nightmare) or if I truly deep down don’t believe we’ve reached that point. My friend thinks that I’m in denial, and I can’t say for sure! I NEED AS MUCH INPUT AS POSSIBLE!
Why are things always so easy when it comes to other people’s children? I do know if I don’t talk to him, someone else will…..or has!
