    Here's the article...http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-world-europe/20090213/EU.Britain.Father.at.13/

    However, just a comment on it though. Twelve year olds having sex and yet not knowing what the word financiall means.

    Better yet tho...
    How can you give a Kindergartener sex education (and what would consist of basic sex ed that would be on their level). At that age, girls are gross and have cooties to some.

    I saw on the news earlier the story of the thirteen year old father. He is tiny--four feet tall and baby-faced. So sad.

    Unfortunately, while I still think it's sad, I've seen "parents" this young too many times already. In the two years I've been teaching middle school, I've seen 3 pregnant 6th graders (two last year, one this year), and one of them the father was also 6th grade. The other two, the fathers were a little older, but not much.

    Awful, just awful. I don't think they even have the right to keep the child. Seriously.

    Oh my goodness, I just read the article. I am speechless.

    I will be 30 this year and not even ready to be a mother.
