Birds and Bees
I am a single mother with an 18 year-old son who is having his first serious relationship with another girl. She is the same age.
I've tried to talk to him about s**, but he freaks out when I bring up the topic. He always changes the subject. The issue that I'm having is that I know he is having a sexual relationship with his girlfriend, because I have found used condoms in the garbage in his room. I work really long hours, so they evidently have been getting it on at the house while I'm working. I'd prefer that he waited until he was married before having s**, but at least he is using protection.
I'm pretty conservative, but try to be realistic too. I'm about ready to tell him to stop having s** in the house, because I feel it is inappropriate, but then again I don't want them doing it somewhere more public, either. Any advice would be welcome.
