Yes, I do think their correlation between this pre-teen sexual exhibitions at the theater and the high pregnancy rate in this area."Think there might be a correlation between this thread and this the one about pregnant girls at OCCHS? "
In the long run, don't you think there ought to be?? I'm not on here to offend anyone, but at least this is a starting point to get parents to wake up and see that their sweet kids, may not always be so sweet and innocent and that they need to check up on their children!
IF these kids are making out in a PUBLIC theater at the age of 11-14, what will they be doing when they're 15 & 16??? When I was that age, I was too afraid of someone telling my parents what I was doing when they saw me out... these kids don't care! I've seen & heard them run out of the theater and Los Portales cussing like sailors, dipping, and making several sexual inuendos.
I would be embarrassed if someone told me that my child was behaving so badly, then I'd beat them within every inch of their life! Most parents chalk it up to "oh they're just being kids and having fun"... Well, those kids are going to be the kids having kids or STDs, and these pretty, young, nieve, girls are going to make a great name for themselves!!
If a 11, 12 or 13 year is permitted to go to the movie wearing skimpy clothes, participate in a heavy make out session, become sexually adventurous with "hands in the pants" and in rumored oral sex, then what is left for them to do when they are 14, 15 or 16?
Yes, they are going to think they are sexually mature enough to engage in sex. The problem is that they are not mature enough to understand how their reproductive system works, and they become a teenage pregnancy statistic.
This all leads back to bad parenting. These parents are very much aware of how their young daughter is dressed when she steps out of their vehicle. There is no need to be wearing skimpy clothes when they are entering an air conditioned building.
If the parents would "check up" on their children at the movies, they would/should be surprised at their behavior.
The problem with some of these parents is that they are too permissive with their children. They are too concerned with being the "cool parent" or with "reliving their own youth".
They are not even concerned when their child becomes a teenage parent. They are only concerned with being a young, attractive grandparent.
Some of the parents in this area have a serious problem with priorities and morals.
