I’m so utterly disgusted about this 12 year old pregnant girl in Dubbo, NSW. She’s carrying the child of a 15 year old boy. The girl’s mother allowed the boy to sleep over with her daughter. This is beyond shocking to me. People who are stupid enough to let that happen (ie, the idiot mother of this girl) should be locked up. If you live in Australia today there is no excuse for such behaviour.
The fact that this happened is shocking enough. What’s worse is some of the commentary I’ve heard about this on the radio today. It seems like a lot of people are essentially forgiving the mother and finding other things to blame. A common theme was that parents these days don’t have time to spend with their children and aren’t able to supervise properly. Newsflash – teach your kids how to be a good person and they won’t be shagging when they’re still in grammar school. Raising your child properly doesn’t mean you spend every waking moment with your child. I know plenty of working parents who manage to set a good example to their children so they don’t turn out to be sluts.
I have no brilliant insight to give or solution to offer to this “tween sex” problem. This blog is just a rant. I’ve felt sick all day thinking about this story. I’m so angry at this story I want to burst. Thanks for listening.
