Parents Of Sexually Active Teens Board To Go
Tue, 01-11-2011 - 7:53pm

I know I'm guilty of inactivity- I got sick again, oops:smileywink: but I'm really sorry to see the availability of this board go. I just looked to see if anything is going on over there and that message was it.

Ya'know, actually no, you probably don't...but I was a volunteer

Hi, Everyone..

Tomorrow morning, CMKristy is going to create two new folders on this board -- one will be for Parents of Troubled Teens, and the other will be for Parents of Sexually Active Teens. The board is going to be labeled for support, so no attacking or critical posts will be permitted, as was mentioned as one of the concerns. Feel free to report anything you think crosses the line, but hopefully this works.

What are your thoughts on any other necessary folder changes, while we're at it? Games and Roll Calls seems to be fairly slow, but if you still want it, we can leave it. Let us know and we'll get it all handled tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience while we get it worked out. Nothing's set in stone, so we can tweak things if we need to.

I think we could do away with the Polls/Roll Calls/Games. As far as I know you can't even do polls in this new format. And this has never really been a board to do the 'Tuesday Two', 'Wednesday Wonderings', etc. type of games. For the most part it's seemed to stay busy enough without having to resort to those. Just my 2 cents worth!

YAY! Thank you so much! So we find them by scrolling down, right? Looking for the next "HEADING" , as in this one is the RRR heading, next is the Polls, Games, then the Explore IVillage? Unless the Polls one goes...I'm FAR from a computer whiz, so need to be led by the hand at first :smileytongue: Keep that

If you scroll down the board, you will find a whole folder for Parents of Sexually Active Teens. You might find some ideas for what you are concerned about by reading past post/discussions there as well as a place to post yours.

What is your recommendation on "provide teens with the means of being safe while still not giving them permission to have random casual sexual encounters."

I like that thought too, but I'd love to hear others opinions. We have 16, 15, and 14 here. We try to be open with them. One is more open than the other two. Have had good conversations about sex and protection and have given my two cents as far as making it special, valuing yourself and so on. I remember being a teen once, too. The other two who aren't as open aren't as interested in the opposite sex at the moment, although the oldest has been in two serious relationships in the past.
