I take it you visited the website in question. Because you would never have a knee-jerk reaction. You pride yourself on your commitment to stating informed and knowledgeable opinions, right?

Yes, Yes, that is the POINT! You're talking about what people should be doing but obviously from our teen pregnancy and abortion rates they are NOT.

Reality vs the fantasy you want to be reality.

If you did your job then why would your kids be interested in the website? So how does this really affect you or your family?

Also, aside from paying for the initial website to be set-up the cost to maintain the site is minimal! All you need is an administrative assistant with a little bit of html skills to pop in a new line or pic every once in a while.

This is called preventative care and the cost are minimal compared to what it cost for things like..free prenatal care...WIC and of course the costs once the child is here.

This is another example of the government being where they shouldn't be.

Kids aren't inherently special until they actually prove they are, btw, mine included. Once again, parents need to step up and the government needs to quit wasting money where they shouldn't be.

No 10-year-old can possibly be supervised in every conversation they have at all times.

But in reality, that's just one kid's parents who screwed up.

HHS Website For Girls, 10 to 16, Informs Youth About Birth Control, Gay Sex,

good post, I agree - and 10 years old is a ridiculous age to start 'teaching' about this kind of stuff.

It's designed for girls, aged 10 to 16, to give them information about sex.

Menstruation does begin for many girls as early as 10 years old. And the trend in the United States has been for menstruation to begin starting earlier and earlier. So, yes, this information needs to be available to girls as early as 8 years old. It can be quite traumatizing for a girl to start her period and not know what is happening.


So as SOON as you begin to develop sexually, you should be sexually active?

That is HORRIBLE!

A 10-year old has no need for most of that stuff.

Why not just have sex ed in kindergarten while you are at it!

so for every one of you there are hundreds who do not do the same as you.



If I had children, I would disown them if I EVER found out they used birth control.

Birth control should be punishable by death. It is despicable and prevents human life from occurring.

It should at least be the same penalty as murdering someone in cold blood.

Not just one, and furthermore I don't think having adult magazines in the home is screwing anything up for anyone.

lol, so you should let your parenting style be governed by those who are too lazy to be real parents?

Oh that makes TOTAL sense!
