Um, why didn't see teach the girls herself? Why leave it up to the school?<br><br>
My heart goes out to these girls.

That is just sad. <i>How</i> can their mother blame the schools? She's <i>their mother</i>, she is their most important teacher!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead">

That's so sad. I found out one of my high school students is pregnant today as well, but I can't imagine being 12 with a child. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br>
Oh, and don't you just love the mom's attitude? Way to eschew responsibility. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed">

I can *kinda* understand the FIRST pregnancy, but:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Jemma was first to give birth, to T-Jay in February last year, and weeks later Jade and Natasha discovered they were pregnant.</td>
</tr></table></div>
So, one girl gave birth and the mother had the nine months of pregnancy to talk about it with the other two and she didn't. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I googled it and also found this:<br><br><a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/05/23/npreg23.xml&sSheet=/news/2005/05/23/ixhome.html" target="_blank">http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...23/ixhome.html</a><br><br>
The father of Natasha's (who's already been pregnant 3 times--2 miscarriages and one abortion) baby is....ready for this?? 38!! His parents don't know about the baby, so he doesn't support them. WTF??<br><br>
So so sad....like someone said--for all the kids.<br><br>

I've also been reading some threads about it, and some of the posters are saying that everyone under 18 should be <i>forcibly</i> injected every 3 mos with that hormone (I'm assuming depo). Talk about off base at the very least, and obviously disgusting.<br><br>

While I wouldn't forcibly inject my daughter, I'd strongly recommend (read: bribe) her to take BC.

Well, that's a bit extreme and a big time violation of their rights. But, what ever happened to EDUCATION???? And since when do parents rely on schools to teach kids everything, especially about sex???

That is such an outrageous thing to say. Depoprovera has a lot of side effects that are very detrimental to a woman's mental and physical health. No one should be forcibly injected with it. I have a 13 year old daughter, and I positively bristle at the thought that she should be subjected to such a thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
