The wrong way to find out your teenaged son or daughter is having sex is insistently on accompanying them to the doctor and demanding to know that information. In other words, pulling a T.I.
That said, there’s probably not a right way for a parent to react to this news, as every situation is different. And judging by the replies to a now-viral tweet, there are tons of ways in which it actually goes down.

It’s interesting to read through and see how people answered her question. The most notable reply was from Chrissy Teigen, model, TV host, and all-around celebrity personality.
Teigen followed up with another tweet that was somehow even more tongue-in-cheek than the first one.

There’s plenty of replies in which the parents were judgmental, possessive, or even cruel, but we’d rather focus on this one, which is pretty much exactly how every parent should react to this particular piece of news.
