What are the laws about two minors having sexual relations? I guess I never thought that it would be considered illegal unless one of them was over 18 while the other was still a minor.

More kids are growing up way too fast these days than ever before. The reality I've found from talking to some teens is that most girls admit that they've had sex prior to reaching 13 years old.

However, if these parents knew there was a sexual relationship between these kids and even bought them condoms?? Come on - I'm for teaching your kids to have safe sex if they are going to be dumb enough to have it - but there should be some common sense that they should be completely discouraging that type of activity at both of their ages not assisting them.

First of all the parents are stupid for letting their kids get invloved with each other at such a young age...

these parents are dumb.i am only 12.but i understand deeply.its not always the parents fault.the girl made her own desicions;she chose to have a sexual relationship with him.me and my boyfriend talk about it but we never talk about us doing it.im not saying that its none of the parents fault.its her parents,his parents,and them two all involved so you cant blame anyone.

You have to be your child's advocate. It's a parent's job to make decisions in defense of your child no matter who's reputation is on the line. An eleven year-old child cannot be crazy about a boy. Trying to ignore the situation only make's it worse.

I think that it's wrong for teenagers to have sex at a young age they should start to grow up and be more mature. I think most schools don't teach them much sex education and are failing teenagers from having sex at such a young age.. I'll be shocked if I had a daughter who had sex at a very young age and I'll feel disgusted and feel very sick. I think that the media such as teens magazines, tv soaps such as eastenders, Corrie, Neighbours have shown a bad attitude towards teenagers.. Their should be a ban on soaps and films showing adult content. They should change(15) rated films which show scenes of sex and sexual attitude and behaviour to 18 so that young children cannot get hold of them..IS THIS COUNTRY FULL OF SEX CRAZED TEENAGERS WHO DON'T CARE ABOUT THE WORLD THEY LIVE IN AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE EDUCATION AND LIFE...

Yeah I do agree that teenagers should not engage in sexual intercourse until their late twenties because it's very hard controlling a child and that young teenagers don't have a good attitude towards their parents when they have found out that they are pregnant.. Most do not know about the sexual diseases that can spread when not using a condom.e.g aids,hiv, gonnorea. SO I THINK THAT THIS COUNTRY SHOULD STOP AND DO MORE TO HELP YOUNG TEENS FROM BEING PREGNANT BECAUSE IT'S A NIGHTMARE WHEN YOU'VE FOUND OUT THAT YOU CANNOT LOOK AFTER YOUR CHILD OR YOU GET BULLIED FOR GETTING PREGNANT..

Whether it hurt doesn't matter....You both sound too young to be doing that...what's the rush? Don't be in such a hurry to try adult things. Sex is for adults who can cope with the bad things that go along with it. Just be kids, while you still can.

The Parent of the Son must have lived in a home where she thinks sex is okay when you are a CHILD! I think it's disgusting for kids to be testing adult actions out. But they do say now that KIDS are having KIDS! Schools need to show them new hoobbies and show girls how to say no and boys also. sink in the consiquences of what can happen to them emotionally and physically

Sadly incidents like this are happening more and more these days. Parents who allow this type of behavior to happen should be charged for child neglect. The Illinois Department of Child and Family Sevices or DCFS is a JOKE. They are well under staffed and if a follow-up report was to be done, you would probably see that DCFS has classified the incident as UNFOUNDED. DCFS needs to step in more and make things right. A Next question that should be ask is if these children are in fact victims themselves. Children who in fact exhibit this behavior usually come from a home where they were also abuse victims. Again Parents need to held accountable; buying condoms for you child, what was she thinking!

Sweetie, if you are having this much trouble with the English language you probably should reconsider having sex. It's important and should be meaningful.
