I was just informed by another mom that our movie theater seems to be a breeding ground for young boys and girls with over-active hormones?

My friends daughter said that she was witnessed a few "indescretions" and stated that although these boys and girls knew others could see what they were doing, they didn't really care.

Has anyone else heard anything about this? If so I'd love to know the truth behind this.

My 13 yr. old son goes to the movies periodically with some friends (some which are girls) and if this is true, then he will no longer go without an adult present.

OMG!! "Wake up, Little Susie, Wake Up." When did you first realize teenie boppers go to the movies to make out?

Somebody ain't payin' attention.

I was told this too, so I have started going with mine-I heard they were installing cameras but not sure about it!
Of course there is also the reason that they don't check the tickets so for all we know our kids are watching R rated movies at 13!

Well connersvillian, we're not naive to the "make out" things that happen back-in-the-day, but these kids today are not doing your average make-out, we're talking hard core stuff.

My 20 yr. old daughter was there with her boyfriend, and saw a VERY young girl who was sitting next to a young boy, suddenly disappear. When my daughter walked down the steps to use the restroom, she saw this young girl kneeling in front of this boy. She notified management immediately.

My daughter said this girl looked to be 12-13 years old and the boy didn't look much older.

I think parents...responsible ones...need to supervise their kids at the movies. Why ask for trouble?

I remember at the age of 13 going to the theater for the soul intention of making out with a girl. No one complained when we swapped gum through two whole Elvis movies, and she didn't get pregnant till four years later AFTER we were married.

Sometimes the love lasts longer than the gum we stick under the seats.

explain this to me, why does ANY parent let a 12 or 13 yr. old go to a movie unsupervised anyway?
I think the problem with today's youth are the parents. No responsibility, and sometimes no brains.

Have heard the same from several.

Also some parents would be embarassed (I hope) by the way their kids act after being dropped off. They jump from one theater to another (5-6 at a time), texting constantly and talking to one another. Very rude and waste of others money. Rarely go as it's too costly to be bothered by the tweeners.

Not only in the theater. I have also heard the same horror stories of the school bus! Any thing goes. If you chaperone a dance at the high school look out! The girls skirts are so short and there is enough bump and grind going on for procreation! And the admin doesn't stop it.(Hopefully things have changed in the last 4 years but I doubt it.)

I've also heard of this "activity" happening there. Obviously there is a problem because we can't all be talking about the same occurrence.

Hit the matinee. It's cheaper and the tweens aren't usually there.

Its not the high schoolers you really need to worry about. Most of them are on birth control.

I have to say yes naughty things have happened at the movies. Seen stuff with my own eyes by a popular athletic girl. I seen worker look right at them and shook his head and done nothing.

I was 13. We were married when she was 17 and I was 20. We had our first child two years later.

My point was, love is usually pretty innocent at the movie theater. Well, it 'used' to be.

kids today are so sexually advanced and yet so mentally and emotionally immature to handle responsible decisions.

they walk around with cell phones, and texting non stop, sending naked pictures of some classmate to other friends cell phones. They dress provocatively, and think they are in LOVE with each girl/guy they "date".

What they need, beside a good kick in the behind, is some Guidance.

Don't forget, our children's behavior reflects on us parents.
