I think 17 is too young to be on the pill

Dear Bunmi,

My son is in his first year at the university and he recently brought home a girlfriend who is currently seeking admission into a university. My son is 19 and the girl is 17.

We hadn’t really given him any sex education and we broached the subject after the girl had gone, as we didn’t want to have to cope with any unwanted pregnancies.

My son was really amused by our ‘talk’ and told us not to worry, that his girlfriend’s mother had put her on the pill. We were really taken aback by this. Telling your teenage daughter about sex is one thing, but kitting her against unwanted pregnancy is carrying

liberalism a bit far. Don’t you agree?

Dear Janet,

Your boy girlfriend’s mother is doing exactly what hordes of mothers all over the modern world are doing. Whether or not you want to face the fact that your daughter might

be having sex, it is a great possibility these days. Same goes for your teenage son! Like the saying goes, better to have the facts and not need them than to need the facts and not have them!

Now that your worries are over regarding your son’s sexual experience, don’t stir up another one on morality!
