    Don't bring up the like. My brother is 17 and has blocked my mum on fb because she would always comment on things so he felt like she was stalking him and his friends.

    Do talk to your son though about the girl and let him know he can discuss things with you.

    She could have just liked the page because it posts funny things.

    I know my Boyf used to have to stay in a seperate room but we would meet up in the middle of night and as a pp pointed out if the wanna do it they will find a way. I think the best thing to do would be not mention the Facebook post and have a bit of a chat with your DS about safe s.ex.
    At the end of the day you won't be able to prevent them from doing it but ensuring they are being safe and supported to use protection is the most important thing I think!

    Yes, tadpoles, I did think the same thing that maybe she just like it because it was funny. Made me think though.

    I wouldn't jump to conclusions about what this could means in terms of them having sex. They're both no doubt at least curious if not fully interested but this doesn't mean that they're actually getting their kit off and going for it.

    I suppose, even if they are, it's fantastic that condoms are at least liked. It's better than not used which seems to be so very common in young people these days.

    I wouldn't ask or question him about it. He did nothing anyway... You really have no what of knowing why your teenaged bf or gf did something.

    If he is having sex and wants you to know he will tell you. If he doesn't want you to know he won't. You asking wont guarantee the truth anyway but may make the whole subject so uncomfortable he will never come to you even if he feels like he kind of needs to.

    Just my opinion anyway.

    And this is judgemental, but I did think that I wouldn't be happy if one of my own girls liked a condom page on facebook!

    I only have a baby girl and I agree I want my little girl to stay innocent forever, however I also don't want to be a grandmother to a teen pregnant or deal with sti's, so hopefully the site can encourage education too. Good luck op several years until I need to worry ( thank goodness )

    The reason I wouldn't like it is because, to me, it just looks a little tacky. You can be educated about safe sex without telling the whole world that you "like" a condom page when you're 15. It's hard to think of your children as anything but innocent.

    A lot of companies will give out free samples if you like their facebook page, I've had free coffee and dog food samples before from doing this so that could be why? However I do think that it's a good thing though, better to be protected than not.
    I probably wouldn't say anything, I think all you can really do is make sure your son is informed and let him know that he can always come to you to talk if he needs/wants to.
