Foreword: When I first wrote this, and sent it out to a test audience, just about everybody said "For pity's sake don't publish this! They'll come looking for you with tar and feathers!" The "they" mentioned there means conservative, right wing, perhaps even evangelical types. But they have kids too, and their kids get pregnant out of wedlock too, though I won't mention the most famous one, or even give clues like "she's a dandy dancer, by the way." No, instead I think I'll just take the chance that suggesting a new way of parents approaching "The birds and the bees" with their children might lead to some dialog. And I think that's a good thing.
And if you don't happen to be a parent, please read this anyway. I guarantee you that you know some parents, and I'm willing to bet cash money that if you give this to them it will start that dialog. Maybe not with their kids, right away, but you never know. This falls under the category of "If it saves one kid from making a terrible mistake, then it was all worth it."
Even if I get tarred and feathered.
Dear Mom and Dad,
You don't know me, but your children might. I hope not, but then, I have reason to believe it's possible.
