    Its just bloody horrible . . . :mad:

    And one thing, giving more sex education at younger ages will just let them know these thing can happen etc etc and make them more intreagued to try things.

    And something that has been hardly touched in this is that why the hell was an 11 year old on a drunk night out, and the smoking aswell, you know she's just going to be someone living on DSS for the rest of her life.

    And here is something that confused me:

    "Sex with a person under 12 is illegal in the UK, regardless of consent. " erm, isnt that meant to be 16?

    I know these things happen all round, but, christ, i couldnt see myself being a parent now, let alone almost 10 years ago

    Yes. You're right.

    Lets take away sex eduacation and keep all the kids innocent and ignorant.

    Because they don't get up to that kind of stuff without sex ed...In fact, I believe that sex ed is the only place in society today where kids get messages about sexual behavior.
  3. No, im not saying take it away, but pushing it to lower ages, this will be teaching kids under 10 about sex education, all im getting at in that part was that IMO teaching kids that are 8-9 sexual education is not going to help.

    How about teaching parents to be responsible for their kids...like not letting them watch TV or movies or video games, listen to music that encourage that kind of activity...those types of entertainment that were never intended for pre-teen children. Or since policing your kids 24/7 is impossible, having open communication about those cultural pressures. Or how about parents having the responsibility to have frank discussions with their kids about the 'facts of life' so that school sex ed might not be necessary.

    If they are putting sex ed in the pre-teen school curriculum, its because it's already become a 'social' problem, not the other way around.

    The best way to teach children not to have sex is to shame them into thinking that it is dirty and wrong. :meh:

    Also, I bet this isn't the youngest mother in the UK ever, just in recent times.
  6. Am I the only one who was also distrought after reading that she was 11 and out drunk, and smoking 20 ciggarettes a day?
  7. I agree completelly there, i think thats one of the main problems in this case, i dont know if its in that article, but the mother was actually quoted as saying she wishes she had given birth at 12 aswell because it would have been sooo much better for her and made her more mature etc etc

    I dont think thats exactly a good stand point to have, not exactly a good role model, and letting her 12 year old (pregnant) daughter smoke ~20 cigarettes a day, and nights out on the bevvy, i think the parent (dont know if her father lives with them) is the ill factor here, not the best way to raise a child :scowl:

    Yeah i brought that up too, the media are hardly even touching that aspect :scowl:

    That tidbit alone speaks volumes. It makes the whole pregnancy thing less than a surprise.

    Ignorance is never a solution.

    Yes, in the old days when european monarchies forged alliances by marrying their offspring, it was probably not uncommon.
  9. I wanna know how it was taught to her that any of those things could even be considered a rational thought at that age. Man go figure. She seems happy, I guess?:eyebrow: :confused:

    It's definately up to the parents, in my opinion; though the increase in teenage pregnancies does seem to be a byproduct of the commercialisation of sex.

    Meh. We're all screwed.

    Agreed. In the past 3 months, my father, a crna, has given anesthesia to two pregnant 10-year-olds. There's something very wrong with that picture.

    So the mother is going to be 12 years older than her child. That's pretty crazy.
  15. I feel sorry for the kid to be honest. Being that close to your mothers age would be very disconcerting.....

    Why do they even mention sex ed?

    Yeah, I'm sure that an 11 year old who smokes 20 a day and gets drunk will pay great attention and learn a lot from school.

    It's just sad..

    I think it's becasue a lot of kids actually don't realize at first that sex=babies. I remember a little girl of 14 at my hospital who was surpised to become a mom. When asked in the intake/admit questions if she was sexually active(everyone over 10 is asked.) she said 'No.' after we discovered she was pregnant and pointed this out to her, she defended her answer by saying she meant that she "just lays there.'

    These kids need to spend time on a farm. After seeing animals mate for a week or so, and then all have their young for a week or so the next season, it's more obvious that sex=babies.

    That's what sex education is. People talk like it's instructions on how to use your crotch, as if teenagers aren't trying to figure that out on their own.

    TV only makes 'em see sex=entertainment.

    in my entire circle of friends ( im 16, turning 17 later this month ) im the only one willing to hold out on sex.

    This girl i had a crush on when i was about 11 or 12 ( maybe younger ) would not date me, she detested me i guess. She is now eight or nine months pregnant ( she is 17 ) and her boyfriend is in his 20's and i think currently in jail...

    also the singer of my first band ( after i quit ) on three seperate occaisions thought she was pregnant.
