What was she thinking? She needs to find a job. She has way to much time on her hands. What could she possibly see in a 15 year old kid. This is happening way to much. People need to start thinking healthy. The world needs to change its ways.

I am the boy's father and yes this is happening too much. It has devastated our family as well as others that arent mentioned in the paper. Now we are fighting a slow court system that keeps allowing posponements.She has already admitted it but still pleads not guilty and the court just allows it to drag on. We would like to get on with our lives and let our son begin healing but cant until she is put away. There are alot more victims here than meets the eye and she knows it.

What alot of people don't understand is that sometimes, without the parents ever understanding, the so-called "kid" wants it. I happen to be 15 myself and I like older men. There is nothing wrong with me or anyone else wanting a relationship with someone older. I think that the only real crime here was that she was married. If she were single, alot of people would view this differently.

The woman is in her 40's. She is a mother and a wife. She should know right from wrong and at 15 you also should have values that tell you the same. At 15 you are still a kid. You haven't developed your mind. At 15 you think you may know it all, but you don't. I feel for this boy and his family and you should too.

Are you saying that because I choose to like older men that I lack values? While I don't generally engage in online arguments I think your statement was incredibly ignorant.

Have you told your parents about the older men? What do you consider older? Why would a man in his or her 40's go with a 15 year old unless they want to control and manipulate the relationship. The only thing you could possibly have in common is sex, and someone in there 40's has no right to step over that boundrie. That is why we have laws to protect children from preditors. If you are 18 go for it, if thats what turns you on!

If you think the only thing that people of different ages can have in common is sex then boy are you missing out! And yes, my mother has met the guy and likes the guy. Now personally, what I consider older for me is no one older than 30. I don't happen to be interested in anyone over that age but I certainly won't condemn anyone who is interested. And no, it's not about control. In several of these situations, I won't say all because there are a few crazy people out there, it's about love. So I guess it's lucky for me I was raised to understand what love is.

Btw, you say that the mind isn't fully devolped at 15. It's quite amusing that in less than 3 months I'll be 16 and that happens to be the Michigan legal consent age. Do you think that I'll change my mind in less than 3 months? I suppose we'll have to wait to find out if my mind "devolpes".

And you said I should feel for them. I do feel for them. I feel for his family. For the man who said he was the boys father on this page, I feel for you. I realize this may not make sense to you but I do not in any way feel for the boy himself.

And aren't you a convicted sex offender yourself? How come you weren't "put away"?

As a (compared to what) "older man", and without knowing or wanting to know any details, I support the idea that we are all humans. I don't know exactly what "relationship" means either. But go figure: My first meaningful relationship (other than parental) with a woman was when I was 19. She was 31. That relationship changed my life (for the better) forever. When I was 63 (now 66) I had a "relationship" with a woman 38 years my junior. It changed my life (and, if I am not being too egotistical) hers for the better, presumably forever. We are best friends, permanent. So where is the problem - presumably in some individuals' mental senility or juvenility.
Whoever you are, be strong, you are not wrong.

You should check into her work history as well. I was told by one of her past employers of problems she had there.

You poor child. It shows we love our parents no matter what they do. You shouldn't have to deal with what she has done. Good luck to you and I hope you don't follow in your mothers unethical footsteps.

Hi I was looking for information on such topics. The reason is because I want to do the right thing but don't know how to go about it!

I heard my sons friends having a discussion, THEY DID NOT know I was listening) they were in the rec room and I heard them discussing something about one of their friends mother's who were as the boys said PUTTING OUT and they talked about other sexual stuff, they also mentioned the mothers name! I know who she is, I've heard she was bi polar but I would never have thought she would do anything!I was, I am frantic, I tried to confront my son when I got him alone and he told me that a couple of his friends all but the age of 13 yrs of age have been having sex with one of his best friends moms but he will NOT tell me who, he doesnt care if hes punished he says its a guy thing? I heard a name during that discussion however how do I anything about this?
If it were my son, I would totally flip! OH wait sorry I already am flipping, if you have any suggestions please help me, I dont know what to do with the info I have
