Tonight my daughter and I were just talking and she told me that shes been feelin sexually pressed. At first, I thought she was joking about because that was the theme of the TV Show (Good Times) we were watching...but I realized that she was being serious.
shes taking Psychology in school. Today she says in class they analyzed their dreams. For the last two weeks shes been dreaming of her ex-boyfriend and he's drinking ORANGE juice. Also in the dream....shes been wearing ORANGE...the code guide they gave for what your dream means is.....ORANGE: Means you are experiencing sexual tension. You should pay attention to your sexual needs.
Lord Have Mercy....when did they start passing stuff like this out at school??
She is 17 and is planning to leave for college at the end of next school year, so we had discussed getting her birth control before she left for college. I just thought that she would wait until then. (smirk)
She assures me that she is STILL a virgin...and I had (have) already selected the doctor I wanted her to see....but feel like going ahead and getting her the b/c now kinda says: Sure....go ahead and have sex. She also assures me, that their is no one person in mind, and she still might be a virgin by the time she leaves for college...but that she wants to be prepared.
For the last two years she has worked with a program at our Local Y that was a teen sexuality program...and yes, abstinence was a part of it. She has done the program for two years....so I know that she is aware of the pitfalls of sex.
One other thing...since she was like 13, I've told her to COME AND TELL ME WHEN SHE WAS READY....I kinda preached it now that she is older 15-17.......and she also knows that I am going to try and talk her out of it....but I'd feel like a bad mother if I brush it aside...and I dont want to overtalk the subject with her either...but how can you overtalk something like this?????
I say all of that to say...that I'm proud that she is 17 and still is a virgin....by the time I was 17, I'd been sexually active for almost a year....so again...is it being a hyprocite to say....DONT HAVE SEX????!!!!
Lord Have Mercy
Ok....so here it goes.....WHAT DO I DO?????????
I know that when a person makes it up in their mind that they are gonna have sex, its gonna happen. I also knew that she wasnt going to be a virgin forever...that more than likely she wouldnt make it to 20....but my Lord...17....she doesnt even clean her room.
Lord, Lord.......help me.
