A mum from Sydney has divided the Internet with a risque gift for her son’s 18th birthday.

The mum bought a $6 jar from Kmart and filled it with mini-bottles of booze, chewing gum, money and a variety of condoms:

Some commenters thought it was inappropriate:

“You bought your son a variety of condoms for his birthday? Is it just me or is that weird?” one wrote – while another called it “distasteful”.

However many others said it was a good example of common sense parenting.

“The condoms are a good idea. We have to teach them it’s our duty as parents,” one wrote


“Praise be to those parents who promote safe sex to their kids instead of making sex a taboo subject,” another woman wrote.

“So important that young men learn that contraception is their responsibility and their right too.”
