It is our responsibility to have loving, educational talks with our kids. We must teach them the difference between right and wrong. We must guide them to be responsible and to make healthy, moral decisions. Therefore, a proper lesson about “the birds and the bees” is a powerful gift of knowledge to give to our teens. This knowledge will teach them about personal responsibility and moral decisions. 

“Kids need to know that it’s okay to make silly, minor mistakes. Little mistakes are life’s priceless, learning lessons. But Immoral decisions kill the mind, body and soul.” — The Watchful Mom

We must have unlimited patience with our teens as we discuss the issue of teen pregnancy. It is important to explain to them why this irresponsible behavior is inappropriate for teens Furthermore, we must stress to them that if they do not make the right/moral decision that there will be life-changing consequences for their irresponsible decisions.

“We must help our teens learn how to plan for their future. We must explain to them how important it is to be a teen kid, and never a teen parent. Therefore, a firm voice is needed with our teens as we give them the following loving advice: Teen boys must never get a girl pregnant, and teen girls must never pregnant.” — The Watchful Mom

As loving parents we must always tell our kids something special: we love you very much, you are very important to us, and we will always be looking out for you. And that means that we will have many strict family rules. 

Our kids must understand that we are doing our best to be responsible, loving parents. We want to make sure they have a healthy, happy, loving, successful life. But in order for all this happen, they must also be responsible teens, and they must learn to make healthy, moral decisions, too.
