What do you think about teen sleepovers?

I was reading an interesting article from Huffington Post, the author was discussing how open parents should be with their teen with regards to sex: 

If you aren't comfortable with your own sexuality or challenging deeply-embedded ideas about sex being "bad," can you teach your kids anything different? In defiance of socially conservative mythology, approaches that are positive about sex do not lead to licentiousness, STDs, abortions and despair. On the contrary, the more you teach children about healthy, responsible sex, the more likely they are to treat sex in healthy, responsible ways. In general, they are more knowledgeable, more emotionally mature about it and "safer" in the scary-sex way.

She does some comparisons between the U.S. and the Netherlands, even how some parents in the Netherlands will allow their teenage children to have sex in their home.  

 Would you want to know your child is having sex, or prefer to remain in the dark?  Would you allow your teen's partner to sleepover in your house?

Yes. That is so likely with me being infertile and all...

Kicky--I said I was the result of a teen pregnancy. I didn't say I'd experienced one. The problem here isn't my writing, it is your reading comprehension.

No, you didn't:

"Yup. I'm living proof that once without a condom = teen pregnancy."

It was clear to me.   The statement could be read one of two ways - since I know her general age and the age of her kids, I knew it wasnt her that had been a teen mom - so the other option had to be it.

Where did she say she or I say that she was a teen mom? She said teen pregnancy.
