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?

Now you're just making yourself look foolish.

Kicker, "living proof" ------- What does that mean?

Living proof could mean that you were a teenager who got pregnant. You are living and the proof would be that you got pregnant. Sigh....

Nope, that would be you thinking my mother lives in FL. Ready for that apology yet? Laughing

Where is this proof that I got pregnant that you speak of? And re: the Florida thing, I must have confused you with another poster. I mean you're relatively new and it is a TOS violation to keep coming back under different names, so I must have confused you with someone else...

Where did I say there was proof that you got pregnant. Your words were very confusing, especially to a new poster like myself, Undecided. When you say "living proof", it could easily mean YOU were the teenager that got pregnant, NOT your biological mother. 

And re: the Florida thing, I must have confused you with another poster. I mean you're relatively new and it is a TOS violation to keep coming back under different names, so I must have confused you with someone else...

Yeah, that must be it. Can't just "man up" and apologize? Bawhhhaaaa....

You are funny. Where are your other cohorts that said I was lying? Lurking so they don't have to deal with me asking for an apology too? lololololol.

Actually, living proof of a pregnancy would have to be the child itself.  If we want to get all grammatically and technically correct and shiz.
