Re: Safe haven laws

yup she mad me absolutley SICK, and that she only got 6 years scares me! I will inform not only my daughters but my sons too. There is not excuse that they could not come to me and as far as I am concerned their friends should be able to confide in me as well. I am not saying that I will be happy they are having sex and by all means I will talk to them about why they should not have sex. I hope they save themselves for marriage but in the case they do not I hope they are NEVER affraid to tell me anything!

But I also want to point out I would hope they would not have to use the safe haven because that would just break my heart!

Re: Safe haven laws

I didn't watch the Oprah (don't watch it often) but I always thought the problem with safe haven laws is that so few people know about them. So you better believe my kiddos will know. Of course I would prefer that they come to me. I hope that we will have the kind of open relationship where they always feel comfortable coming to me about anything large or small. I also hope to be that cool mom that their friends would come to if they needed help. But I want them to know. Hopefully not for their own use, but the unfortunate truth is that most kids learn about sex from their friends. At least mine will have all of the facts to share. Maybe their knowledge can save a baby's life.

Re: Safe haven laws

didnt see it, i wish i had now though, thats something that intrests me..
anyway, ill let them knw about it, but seeing as im 19 and with my kids, and not married, well...id for sure hope they wouldnt thiink id judge them or try to hide a child from them for not being married, or bing young or whatever, i mean, i really hope they actually care for whoever they have sex with, but i dont think of a child when not married, or 25+ or whatever as some abhoration to be hidden, and never thought of again, either...
id welcome a grandchild into my house, and hopefully my kids will have the sense to take care of the baby, and nt do something stupid, kwim?

Re: Safe haven laws

I missed the oprah epi but wanted to say i will tell my kids about the safe haven law, it can save so many babies if more people knew about it.
i would pray and hope that my kids would come to me if either got pregnant or got someone else pregant, i want an open relationship with my kids and will tell them about this when we have the sex talk too
