Condoms? Yay or nay?

I recently heard an old mama ayounge say she would, with all joy, give her children their first condoms and steady supply thereafter. She wasn't talking to me in particular so I just siddon dey look. She is a typical sister caro because today she talks about choir practice and invites us to her church and she be turning up at clubs tomorrow. While her contemporaries have PTA meetings at mind, she totally refused to slow down. Such a role model.

I would never buy condoms for my child, married or otherwise. It's not in my job specifications. If I do see a condom or just the wrapper with my unmarried child, he or she will hear it oh. Dear future baby, I hope you get to read this. Don't ever try mommy. I get the point that one can't stop one's children from having sex. They can't be monitored and protected 24/7, a 18year old is an adult and can make many decisions including whether or not to have sex. I agree 100%. But don't be giving me the teach them to play safe card. Complete nonsense! When I go home with a seemingly good result that has my peers hailing me, my mom would ask why I didn't have an A. When I say "Anhanh mommy, a lot of people failed o." She says "But someone got the highest. Why couldn't it have been my child? I don't care about what others scored. I know you can make it and you should work harder." On that note, why can't your child be exemplary? Why should your boy be allowed to fornicate because others do?

Has God's standard changed? Will it? So why should yours? You're the parent, act the part. Let your child know right and wrong, benefits of doing right and consequences of doing wrong. If he or she decides to sin, you've done your part, it's between him or her and the maker. He shouldn't bring any of it near you. Don't be an accessory to sin because the sin is a normal thing to do. Why don't you buy bullet proof vests for him to be an armed robber, or skimpy clothes to help her be a runs girl. Those are now random too, you know? Be ye not conformed to the world. Ye are the light of the world. Please please, having a family is secondary, making heaven is primary. Nothing/no one is worth missing heaven for.

No, I do not have a child but I know right from wrong. I also do know it's not as easy as I run my mouth. It will be easy for us in Jesus' name. Thanks for reading. Xoxo, Anuoluwapo.
Still talking about children, I strongly recommend you make inquiries about this school before the next academic session resumes. I'm not into advertisement but i'll recommend "stuffs" that I can use myself. If you want to publicise anything on here, please feel free to let me know but be ready to give one or two of your products/services to my bloghearts. I'm not LIB, I have, only, atleast a 100 pageviews everyday but some posts get more than 500 views but then hey, it's free and you don't know who may just be reading.

Dear bloghearts, thanks for reading. Do come back tomorrow, I'll have something really special for you. All my love, Anuoluwapo

Totally in support to all that was said. I would like us to comment on this; Just as the write has said, As parents we are to act our part by letting our children know right and wrong and the benefits of doing right as well as consequences of doing wrong.

Now, if as a parent, You have done your part but one beautiful day, you find out that your teenage son has impregnated a girl or your teenage daughter comes home pregnant, what is the best approach in handling it?

If an article can be written on this by our dear blogger, we would appreciate it. thank you ma

Good post Anu. I need to get whooped for forgetting your birthday, I'm so sorry dear, to think I was supposed to be a part of the plan somehow.
To the post, I wouldn't give condoms to my kids but would discuss the inevitable implications they might encounter if need be, before they are misinformed by negative vices. It all boils down to sex education.
