When Kris Jenner appeared on US talk show Bethenny in 2012, she candidly described how, when Kim was 15 years old, she had put her on birth control.
“When my older ones were growing up and Kim came to me and she was very honest, saying that she was feeling sexual. I kept on thinking ‘oh God, here we go’,” said the Kardashian matriarch.
Jenner said she felt no hesitation in putting all her daughters on the Pill as soon as they expressed an interest in sex.
“You can try and talk your kids out of (having sex), but unless you lock your child in the closet and throw the key away, they’re going to do what they feel.”
It’s the talk most parents dread, but once you start noticing your child grow into a teen, there’s no denying that the topic of sex and relationships will arise. The question is: how and when do you broach the topic of contraception with your hormonal teen? Do you take the proactive route or live in denial?
