Of course. They're more than likely going to be having sex whether you suspect it or not. I'd rather my kids be safe than have a paranoid parent who is too scared to talk to their kids about safe sex.

probably before they even ask for it. I will do the whole talk and demonstrate how to use it.

It will probably actually kill their libido anyway to here that from mom, but if it doesn't then at least I know they know how to be safe.

Yes! Better safe than sorry when it could mean a grand-kid or STDs!

I don't plan on having kids, but if I did then I'd definitely be handing out condoms. Otherwise I'd have no one but myself to blame if anyone got pregnant or sick.

Yes I would along with instructions on how to use it right.

I was given condoms as a teen by my mom so I would probably do the same for my teen.

I would. They're going to try things anyway, I'd rather them be prepared.

So far I haven't. However, we have had several talks about safe sex. We have discussed condoms as well as other types of birth control and how to obtain them and when they are appropriate. I also have been in the grocery store and pointed out where they are on the shelf! They know! I also have said that I believe sex is an adult activity and that if you are adult enough to be in a sexual relationship then be a man and buy ahead of time! (if I had girls I would say be a woman and be prepared yourself!) I am also positive that they have the financial and transportation resources needed to make those purchases! I feel like my job is to give them information, and provoke thought. Their job is to make their own choices. I have tried to set things up so that making wise choices is the natural choice.

I probably would I would rather him be safe then sorry. Right now I don't have to worry about it. But I know soon enough the time will come.

If my 16 y/o son said, I think I'm going to start having sex.. yes I would.

If my 13 y/o daughter said that, I would say NO WAY! NOT HAPPENING.

It really depends on the child him or herself, age, and what they plan on doing with the condom.

If my son has a girlfriend, I'll definitely make sure he carries some with him; but he doesn't have one yet.

I don't plan to ever have kids, but I can see myself giving condoms to my hypothetical kids.

I don't want to have kids but,I have a teenage nephew and I'm planning on giving him condoms if I can see him without his younger sister being around.It's fine with my Brother if I do that.

I don't know what I would do if my kids told me they'd be having a kid. So safe is good. But then I don't want to encourage it?

I think I would but I'm unsure...I have time to think about that! lol

I would definitely sit them down and have a talk, not just hand them a pack of condoms: "Here ya go" lol.. (I doubt that's what you meant.) MY belief is that sex is best saved for marriage. But I also know that my future kids are going to make their own decisions, and if they decide to have sex before they marry, I'd much rather them be protected than to end up pregnant/get a girl pregnant, or contract STD's.

Yes, although I think ze would probably be quite capable of finding zir own condoms (I know I was). I would be sure at the time to have an open dialogue about sex/intimacy going; I can't really see having, adopting, or potentially even fostering one without that. (Other things, like age and the maturity of the teen, would come into it as well--that would have to be included in the conversation. But I'm not sure I would ever out-right refuse, out of thinking that would be detrimental, I would no longer be an ally, and it'd still be pretty easy for the teen to get zir hands on a condom.)

Definitely wanting a safe protected teen over extra kids to take care of.

Yes, I'd rather buy my teenager a condom than help them support a child and care for it.

I think that's like saying birth control pills encourage sexual promiscuity.

Of course is give my (future) children access to condoms, or even other forms of birth control. But we'd have to discuss it first.

Yes, absolutely. With a talk about std's and safe sex in general.

Yes, better safe than sorry definitely sums that up! I'd rather give them a condom and have the talk/or discuss things that could happen if not using a condom. Always pair condoms and knowledge, that's my opinion.
