Three girls aged 12, 14, and 16 in the same family have all had children recently. The mother blames the school for not giving good sex-ed. I blame her for being a shitty parent. Take some responsibility for your own spawn woman! You have a responsibilty to your children, the school should supplement their lives, you are the primary source of inspiration for them -- not their teachers.

You are their mother but aparently you want nothing to do with how they are brought up. Honestly... sometimes I think there should be a test before you can have a child, other than the practical I mean.

People like this make me so angry.

Aweful story.

What were they doing with boys at their age anyways? I got my first kiss when I was 19!!! And may I add, I'm glad it turned out that way.

"He was my first love but now I'm gutted because he doesn't want to have anything to do with me or T-Jay."

No kidding luv. What could be more interesting and cool for a teenage boy to go see the bird that he knocked up and that can't go clubbing and doing fun things anymore?
:P

And yes, the parent(s) are to blame.

Head-wall, Head-wall...
Teenagers go from zero to sixty, and if a parent's not around before and during to provide the right information and support, things happen. Schools don't get enough money to do what they're supposed to do, which isn't 'parent'.

For cripes sake! My daughter's 15 and while she's done a bit of kissing, she's totally not ready for more and we talk about it. She has ALL the tools she needs to protect herself from pregnancy and disease if she decides when we're not around that she can't physically control herself, but she's fully aware that abstinence is the only certain way to avoid any problems. We shared a good laugh over the fact that two different OB/Gyn's have required convincing that she's still a virgin because most of their patients her age are not. We're not at all prudes, but that's just depressingly funny to as social commentary.

No one is a perfect parent, but if you're going to birth babies, you should at least make an effort. I hope at least one of the daughters does better than grandma did.

Good call. It is the parent's responsibility to inculcate their children with values. It sounds like the parents of these teenagers were leaving it up to the school system to do that.
