should i buy my teen a sex dolls toy
When my son turned 18 my friends an family all feared that I wouldn’t be able to keep up the same level of parenting that I’d been used to, but little did they know that my son has been much easier to handle now that he’s an adult. He’s always asking me for my opinion and advice, so when he recently asked whether he should buy a sex toy for himself, I was taken aback.
“Should I buy a sex toy?” He asked me one day, and I immediately started to think about how to answer him. Was this appropriate? What would I say? After a few moments I decided that the best thing I could do was to be honest and truthful with him and explain why I thought it may not be the best idea.
I sat him down and explained all the potential risks associated with owning a sex toy, like the potential for embarrassment, and how it could lead to problems with his relationships. Then I asked him to think carefully about why he wanted a sex toy in the first place. Was it because he was curious, or because he wanted to show off to his friends?
After several conversations we eventually reached the conclusion that it wasn’t necessarily a bad idea, but that he should think carefully, firstly about the potential risks, and also consider his motivation for wanting one. I explained that if he felt like it was a good idea, he should make sure he was comfortable with using the toy in the presence of others and that he should ensure he followed all the manufacturer’s safety advice.
At the end of the day, I gave my son my blessing to go ahead and make the purchase if he wanted to, but I also made sure to emphasize that he should use it responsibly and always follow the safety advice that came with it. I could see the enthusiasm in his eyes but it was important for me to ensure that he wasn’t getting in over his head without proper preparation.
The conversation that I had with my son that day profoundly affected the way I think about parenting, and now I am much more likely to give a child or teen the chance to make their own decisions, within reason, Penis Rings instead of dictating their behavior.
Now, instead of advising him not to buy a sex toy I take a more empathetic approach, understanding that his opinion is just as valuable as mine and that he has the right to make his own decisions. I encourage him to consider the potential risks, while allowing him to come to his own conclusions. Rather than just giving him answers or telling him what he should be doing, I now try to explain the reasoning behind my advice and why this decision may or may not be a good option for him.
This approach has more often than not brought us to a mutually beneficial solution. I’ve become more open with expressing my opinion and he’s more likely to take my advice on board and consider all the options before making a decision. In the end, it’s a method that has served us both better and often leads to better outcomes.
