Wow! I can't believe I'm posting this, oh, so scary news, but I always get such good (and bad) advice. I realize I will get mixed feelings on this subject, but, here it goes.

My 15 year old is having sex. I think.
Short version- I found a condom in her picture frame. (I'm a pretty good snoop) about 2 weaks ago.
O.k, here's where it gets ugly.... They're mine.
I didn't say anything to her. I started thinking my condom stash was getting kinda light. Not due to me.
So I decided to count them the other night, and counted 11.
O.k., she and her " friend" who's a very nice guy, went to the movies and dinner. I looked in the box, and counted 10. DID YOU HEAR ME ! 10!

I ran out of my room, to confront her, but stopped. What do I do? I don't want her to NOT, use them. I also dont't want to say it's o.k.

So she's out with him now. All I can think about is them...well you know.
I really am in a delima as to how to approch this. I need advice, right or wrong, everyones opinion will be taken. Thanks. :confused:
If you're daughter is having sex be thankful that she's practicing safe sex. A lot of kids don't these days. I'm sure it's always shocking for a parent to find out their teen is sexually active but the best thing to do is remain calm and ask her to sit down for an adult conversation about sex. Don't "confront" her...sit down as mother and daughter and have a frank heart-to-heart. DO NOT admit to snooping through her room. That will shake any trust she has in you.

Kiera1595 gave great advice and I can't really add a whole lot to it. Tell her that you will make condoms available to her and you should discuss getting her on some birth control as well. It may seem like you're condoning her actions but what you are really doing is protecting her from unwanted pregnancy and STDs. If she wants to have sex she is going to whether you like it or not. At least this way there will be some trust and openess between the two of you and she will more than likely come to you with any problems she may have in the future.
