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?

Yeah, I know some people just can't handle the fact that they COULD be wrong sometimes. Cool

Nah, I know these posters have a problem with admitting when they are wrong. That is why only one has come back to post. lol.

Since you don't seem to have a problem rehashing old debates, Kicky, perhaps you could answer the questions about grass, that you forgot to answer yesterday. 

In what ways (other than the edge) can you tell the difference between sod and seed?

"What does this have to do with the accusations that she lives in FL or anything I said ever about her?" What a strange choice of words. People don't get "accused" of living in Florida - they get accused of crimes, such as theft or petty larceny.
