Dear MIRIAM: SORRY ABOUT THE SEX ORGY

November 10, 2006

By Dr MIRIAM STOPPARD

Dear Miriam MY husband and I went away for the weekend and our 17- year-old son threw a party. When we arrived home it was still in full swing and we found two of his friends nearly naked in our bed.

The other rooms were in a terrible mess and littered with used condoms. I’ve been too scared to confront my son in case he admits he’s been having sex. To me he’s still my little boy. What should I do?

IF there’s one issue parents feel uncomfortable facing when it comes to their teenage children, it’s sexual activity. You need a reality check. Little boys don’t usually organise boozy parties and your son is all grown up.

Studies show teenagers who feel they can talk with their parents about sex are less likely to engage in high-risk behaviour than those who don’t.

If you’ve talked with your son about sex and discussed ways he can have it responsibly then, unless he’s having sex with a girl under 16, he’s not doing anything wrong.
