Why do parents who've lost their virginities as teens not want their children to do the same?

I'm not a parent, and I'm just curious

  • Lol so many people have mentioned about mistake and education issues. Having pre-marital sexual intercourse is okay but getting pregnant is a no-no , what the hell. Why taking risk then? No need education for this most of our parents have did in the past and waited for the marriage , did someone educate them , the answer to that is no. So we cancel the education. Mistake is already doing that before marriage so the mistake is also cancelled. Just by using logic we can easily get the correct way already , right? Avoiding any kinds of these actions will offers u to have a happier life in any kinds of relationships. Look at your parents' life they have not had both of these things but their marriage is much much happier that that of the marriages are today. by the way , I have not seen any couples whose are still together after having babies before marriage and did this in their teens , in fact , whenever people do that thing before marriage. Already , having any kind of sexuality actions with someone like sexual-free life is really disgusting cuz it is not healthy and some contagious diseases could be spread around one people to the other and also physiologically results even in bad things till a person die. Just avoid it.

    • I think the bot is a believer , too lol

    Because they are old and mature and know that it's consequences while you have not yet mature to understand that.
    When you will understand it, you will say that they were right...
    They have seen what you have not seen and any parent will always wish the best for his child.

  • When someone who did something themselves tries to convince you not to do it, I call them hypocrites. That's okay though, they are often looking out for you and care. If they did not, they would not say that.

    I've always looked at it kind of like, okay your telling me not to do something I really want to do because you did it and it sucked for you. It might not suck for me, but you saying not to do it because you did means you have less credibility. If you had not done it and then say don't do it, I'd believe you better.

    I'm okay with parents saying what they did and why they didn't like it and why they shouldn't do it. That is the best approach, but leave it at, it is your choice.

  • That's false, my parents lost their in their teen and didn't gave a shit when me or my sister lost it. They let her boyfriend sleep in her bedroom while she was still underage.
    Usually parents don't talk about it at all (my parents did this, mother said sex was the only things men thoughts about and were interested in and my father never ever said a words about it).

    • @alice55 cool family.

    • @MasterKS Not sure if that's sarcasm or not but I love my family more than anyone.

    • @alice55 might sound sarcasm but its not, i am appreciating the bold living.

  • Because some looked at it as a mistake and don't want their children to their mistake.

    Others are ok with it but want their children to be smart about it and prevent pregnancy and disease.

  • Usually it’s because they regret their decision, and now have years more experience and understanding of sex/pregnancy, and want to prevent their child from making the same mistake. It’s a good concept, you don’t want people to suffer, but at the same time, your kid isn’t you, they may not believe or think the same way you do, so educate them and help them make a responsible choice, but don’t force them to follow you, or they will rebel.

  • Because a lot of us know how fcked up our experience was and dont want the kid to make those same mistakes. Sure make some mistakes but please not that one. Just be 18 and out my house

  • Because they want avoid their children being hurt, and making the same mistakes they did. Being disappointed with their choices. They can instil wisdom to their children from their knowledge. From their childhood.


    It’s a good idea to wait. To make sure it’s the right person and special. A moment you can look back on and have happy memories of. To not rush in.

  • It probably wasn’t the best experience for them. Regrets they want to prevent their own children from having. Mostly teen pregnancy.

  • For me, I'll be worried about my kids just because of how many people I've seen get pregnant or end up in bad situations at a young age

  • Because they may believe it was a mistake that need not be repeated. As a parent, you would want your children to live better lives than you did.

  • I would imagine it's because they look at their teenage children and still remember their innocent faces as babies and don't want to imagine someone sticking their dicks/pussies in or on their babies. 😂😂😂

  • Maybe they've learned the negative effects of first-time sex as a teen, and they don't want their children to have to experience the same things. We parents do the same thing for everyday experiences, not just sex.

  • I would only want them to be safe and prepared along with being educated

  • Because they don't want them to feel robbed from not getting what they deserve. They deserve someone who will marry them they deserve the best and don't want their children to settle for less. They don't want their children to make the same mistake and they pussy or dicks to feel used I don't know wild guess

  • Maybe they've found out it's better that way. Maybe they know that young teen sex can cause babies that can screw up their lives forever. Maybe they think it's best that they stay young as long as possible! Kids are in TOO BIG OF A HURRY to grow up and then, when they get there, they wish they would've stayed young as long as possible!! You don't know what you've got `til it's gone!

  • The risk of teen pregnancy. Period.

    Also, no parent wants their kid to lose virginity before marriage.

  • That's not the case of what I've seen, but I guess it would be because they didn't feel like it was the right move for them.

  • They don't want there kids making the same mistake they did when they were younger. I'm not a parent this is just my guess.

  • Do you really have to ask this question?

    Parents are more wise and have more sense than their children.

  • Pretty sure most parents dont give a fuck

    • Yo mama

  • Because they know they fucked up.

  • Because how a 15 year old sees themself and how their parents see them is vastly different. Their parents realize how different reality is from their 15 y. o. perspective. Plus they tend to be more protective.

  • Maybe think about it for two seconds? You're in your 30s, I'm sure you can do it.

    • Yo mama

    • You're a moron. Use your fucking brain and answer this painfully obvious question yourself. And now fuck off.
