From ABC-TV News — By MARY PFLUM — June 22, 2011

Patty Skudlarek strives to be a responsible parent. That’s why she says she told her 18-year-old son that if he wants to have sex, not only is she okay with it, but she’d prefer that he do it in the family home. Skudlarek isn’t alone. The Internet message boards are abuzz, telling the story of a small but growing number of parents who are allowing their teenagers to have sex at home.

IF indeed some teens are going to have sex anyhow—maybe it is better in a safe environment. However I would think that it would be awkward having your parent in the living room etc. while engaging in that activity. There will always be those kids who are going to engage in sexual activity much earlier than a parent would like—and that might be the car (really not comfortable) or woods or beach or a nasty, cheap motel. IF given permission by the parent—some would be OK with it, some not. Yes or no would be up to the parent and the child—and their relationship. Hopefully some of these parents would encourage their teen to abstain etc. Some will and some won’t, no matter the setting.
