Oh, dont' worry I agree - 10 yr olds shouldn't have sex w/ each other. And yet, it happens. Should we keep them from doing it safely? Yes, we should try to keep them from doing it altogether, but that does *NOT* change the fact that it does and will happen. So wheres the harm in allowing them to have *ACCESS* to condoms?? Doesn't mean they have to get one, doesn't mean that if they have one they will use it. Just means that if they want to have sex, they can do so *safely*. Wheres the harm in that?
I can't figure out how a school could give a 10 year old access to condoms without at least implying that it is okay for that child to have sex.
The harm in a school giving a 10 year old child a condom is that the school would then be involved with the 10 year old having sex (if the child does have sex), which is not legal or acceptable under ANY circumstances.
Imagine a 10 year old going to the school nurse for condoms in order to have sex with another 10 year old. Imagine that one of those 10 year olds is your child. What is the right thing to do in this situation? If that was my child, I would not want the school to imply that sex is okay by giving my child the condom. I would want to be informed so that I could make sure without a shadow of a doubt that my child could not have sex with another child. Otherwise, I don't see how the situation could be anything but child neglect.
Please explain to me how this situation could be anything else because I'm not seeing it.
