Safe haven laws

So, does your pre-teen or teenager know about the safe haven laws? Do you plan on telling them? If so, at what age? Just curious since that is the topic on Oprah today.

its a law that lets you drop a baby off at a police station or fire dept with no questions asked and no consquences to you. Its to help teens who have babys, instead of them hiding the baby behind/in a trash can or killing it, they have somewhere safe to take them.

I plan to tell all my kids about it at the same time we have the sex and protection talk.

Re: Safe haven laws

I'm watching it right now, and the girl infuriates me.

I'm not sure about the OP's question, though. Will I tell my daughter that if she gets herself pregnant, she can take the baby to a hospital and drop it off? No.

She will know how we feel about sex before marriage, but we will also tell our children that if they ever make a mistake and get pregnant, we will take the child in and help and support them completely.

Re: Safe haven laws

I hope (as I'd assume most parents would) that my boys will grow to be good people. I would hope that I can raise them to make smart decisions and know that for every action, there is a reaction...or, for every act - there is a consequence. In an appropriate way, I will tell them about the safe haven laws. I want to explain it in such a way...that they don't think, hey...i can keep the baby and deal with it...or i can drop it off at the hospital with no consequence. I want them to see it as a last resort...if it's necessary to keep the baby healthy, then by all means (as opposed to dropping it in a dumpster, etc). i hope my point came across right...I'm having some trouble with words today.

Re: Safe haven laws

I plan to tell all my kids because even though they can always come to me if it happens to them, maybe they will have a freind who doesnt, and them knowing could help out their friend and save a baby.

Exactly. I think the info should be put out there with everything else.
