After speaking with some friends (now parents themselves) about their experiences I have compiled the funniest and most embarrassing so we can all remember we were once young too.
It is also serves as a reminder that now as we wear ‘the other (parent) shoes’ that we should be prepared that finding out about this fact may occur at unexpected times and in unexpected ways.
Condoms don’t flush.
*Lisa discovered her son who was 15 at the time was sexually active during a late night visit to the toilet. “We allowed his girlfriend to sleepover in the spare room but obviously they weren’t in separate beds the whole night because in the toilet, floating at the top was a used condom,” she said. Deciding to broach the subject in the light of a new day, Lisa simply said to her son and his girlfriend over the breakfast table, “condoms don’t flush *Riley.”
Their reaction was complete and utter embarrassment.
Honesty is the best medicine.
When *Abby went to the GP accompanied by her mother he asked her if she was sexually active, Abby decided that she shouldn’t lie to the doctor so replied “yes.” “My mother was so angry at me after that!” She said. The doctor appointment was followed up with an in depth mother and daughter conversation that neither of them really wanted to have.
Caught ‘nude’ handed.
It was late at night when *Mel decided to quickly dash to the toilet. “My boyfriend was staying over and we were doing what many teenagers do. I needed to go to the toilet so made a quick dash but on the way I unexpectedly and literally bumped into my dad in the hallway. There was no getting out of that one,” Mel said.
*Kate said that her mum caught her and her boyfriend at the time in a very exposed position. “It was humiliating. Literally, full frontal, penis in vagina, I had my legs up, spread wide, so there was nothing left to the imagination,” she said. “My boyfriend could never look my mum in the eyes again. We broke up soon after.”
