Sexin’ in Your Parents’ House…

June 23, 2011  |  

So many times my mom has been my news aggregate. Most of the time the stories center around parenting, being that she’s a mother and all. She was the first to tell me about the “white” baby born to Nigerian parents, the botox girl and now this.

Yesterday she sent me a text message asking if I’d heard about the parents who are allowing their children to have sex in their home. These parents came and spoke on Good Morning America, telling the nation that they’re cool with their kids screwing under their roof.

When I first heard about this I thought about the mother in the teen classic “Mean Girls”. You know the type of parents who are on the “I’m the cool mom” tip. But the parents who appeared on GMA, didn’t say the need to be cool in their children’s eyes was at the heart of their decision.

One mother, Patty Skudlarek, who has an 18 year old son, prefers her son have sex at home because it’s safer and cleaner.

“”I’d rather he … do it here than somewhere else,” “With the kids having sex at home, it’s a safer environment, because, you know, it’s clean … and usually the place they keep the condoms are in their bedroom…So then they’re close by. And it’s just … an environment they’re familiar with, as opposed to a motel, a car or a park, or wherever they’re doing it, these days.”

Another mother, Chloe Foreht, allowed her daughter’s boyfriend to sleep over about once a week.

I’m not a parent, so I can’t condemn these people, but I am judging them, right about now.

I understand parents wanting their children to be safe, but at what point does a teenager’s/young adult’s sexuality become their own, something they can associate outside the walls of the home they share with you ?

Are you encouraging and creating an opportunity your child might not be mentally or emotionally ready to handle?

It’s definitely questionable.

But I can see why acknowledging your child’s sexuality instead of ignoring it or pretending it doesn’t exist might be a more beneficial strategy in the long run. This is why I can’t quite call it. It depends on the child and I don’t have one… so it’s up in the air.

But one of the teenagers GMA interviewed also brought up a good point. She said this permission may put a child who doesn’t want to have sex in a tricky situation.

Grace McVey, 17, added. “Like, how do you say no? Like, a lot of times if they’re saying, ‘Let’s do it. Let’s do it.’ Like, ‘It’s time,’ whatever you blame it on your parents. You’re like, ‘No, I can’t. My parents would kill me.’ But if that whole thing is gone, like, what do you say?”

So ladies and gentlemen of Madame Noire, the parents and the childless, what do you say to this one? Would you allow your child to have sex in your home? Why or why not?

    Sex is not only for adults, but INDEPENDANT adults!  Should have their own house for sex.

    Wow! I wish they were my parents. I'm 23 years old & I pay my mother a little rent. She said, "when you pay all the bills then you can bring your men in here." That is my motivation to move out. If I could have sex in my parents home I would live their untill I was married.

  • Enough already

    Wow… Now you are comparing a natural act to equate with doing crack???? Wow, then either you aren't getting some often, or you have a radical conservative observation about a "God given instinct" in the realm of human nature. I am going to need for you to think about what you saying here…lol

  • Those parents better not get mad if their kids has a baby or two.

    • logablogaboo

      They would probably also pay for an abortion, if they haven't already.

  • not in my house! adults do adult things in their house.

  • manc

    Well I was always told to used the pill AND condoms, the chance of accidental pregnancy in that situation is so negligible it's pointless tormenting yourself over it…

    Are you F**cking kidding me….I am a 30 yrs old professional living with my man (we're not married) and whenever we visit my parents we have to sleep in separate bedrooms, and I totally understand its called RESPECT!!!!

    teenagers are going to have sex regardless, and they are doing it in their parent's home with or without their consent. Whether parents want to believe it or not, it's happening. I commend parents who are active in their kids' sexual actiivities, because prevention and education is better than an unplanned pregnancy. I am 22 years old, and although i have never had sex under my mom's roof out of respect, i wish she would have taken me to get birth control and condoms, and educated me on sex way more than she did. Im a single mother right now, of a 2 year old boy & even though i am almost done with college and i live on my own… Life would be much easier if i had an adult mentoring me on safe sex. so KUDOS in a way to these parents that are not going to wait for a ,"mom i have something to tell you .." talk.

    I'd rather teach my children abstinence….

    • lol

      Actually done the correct way it is the best thing that you can do. If they decide to disobey that is their choice, but at least they have been taught that they have the choice of being abstinent. Ultimately the decision is theirs to make, but they need to know about abstinence, and the risk of using condoms and birth control etc.

      • manc

        Well the original post said nothing about educating them about contraception the person just said they would be teaching their children abstinence when in reality kids need to be aware of all the options available to make an informed decision about their own bodies

    • Kayla

      Always assuming kids are these nymphomaniacs who cant control their urges and must bone everything moving is really stupid. Of course I would teach my child the importance of condoms,birds,and bees, etcc but encourage and urge them to wait until they're older. im not gonna throw condoms in child face and tell them to have fun. And they will only rebel, if i shield them in my house, stalk them if they talk to the opposite sex,go thru their phones to see text messages from boys etcc…. There's nothing wrong with waiting

    RIDICULOUS. Its funny how on one end of the spectrum you have parents who allow this to go on in their home, and then on the other end you have parents who walk in on their children having sex and beat or shoot at them. Shame on both. Their needs to be more education in my opinion. Everyone nowadays is having sex like dogs just runin around humpin whomever when the get that feeling. Its just so cheap in our culture today. I think thats why AIDS is rampant, kids are raising kids, and mothers are raising children alone. If we truly teach our kids the meaning of sex, how to have self control and respect for themselves and other people, things may be a little different. I don't agree with the way these parents are raising their children, but that is their prerogative. I know as for me and my home this will not be happening.

      I agree with you 100%!
