I don't need religion in my life to impress upon my kids that middle or high school relationships are based on immature emotions and mental and physical capacities based solely on the influx of newly flooding horomones. I can also impress upon my son that those girls willing to blow or do whoever flatters them or makes them hot are a big RED FLAG of WHOOT WHOOT! MENTAL ISSUES! SOMETHING AIN'T RIGHT! and most likely not a girl he'd be bringing to any family cookout to hang out and with his family. I can impress upon my daughter that any school aged guy who insist she needs to "grow up and put out or lips on" if she wants to keep a guy could care less about her psyche and that is a big RED FLAG of TAP AND RELEASE and if she's willing to put up with that than she has mental issues that need to be dealt with and she should seek help and she most likely won't be the girl he'll be bringing to any family cookout to hang out with and meet his family.I'd say religion has alot to do with this argument. The fact that the morals being portrayed here are based on religious beliefs, I'd say religion has EVERYTHING to do with it. Whether its your reason why you raise your child a certain way, or why you believe sex to be one way or another. Whatever you determine it to be, the reality is its based on a way of life. Keep in mind that the way you raise your kids, or have been raised isn't the way others have been raised or raise their kids. With that being said, despite the fact that you tell your children "not to have sex because parents make a mean face" doesn't mean that other people tell their children, Look I know your going to get it on, so make sure you use condoms and get on birth control, and if something should happen, here is a box of plan B in the cabinet to prevent a late night expensive trip to the ER to prevent pregnancy.
If only kids would realize the difference a few years and maturity makes in how good a relationship and sex can really be.
