Fortunately, and thank whatever gods are out there, I did not have to worry about my kids requiring

I'm with the others that if you feel your dd has such low self esteem and poor impulse control that she may be having sex with random boys in the bathroom at school BC is definitely a better alternative than having a baby at 13-14 (as long as she has the maturity to use it properly). If you're putting her on it just because you heard about 2 girls having sex in the school bathroom I'd think a talk with your dd about appropriate behavior for children, your expectations, etc. along with constant supervision that children need is a better alternative. Is the administration aware that kids are having sex in the middle school bathrooms? Don't they have teachers/aids checkhing that stuff? Might be an opportunity for parent volunteers if they don't have the staff to properly supervise the children. I've also heard of 13 year olds drinking and doing drugs - does that mean because other kids do it you're going to throw up your hands and go buy your dd a six pack?

My dd does do some things like cheerlead, etc but I'm not going to lock her in her room so I choose to put her on bc. Also here if the bus shows up early or parents bring them early you got kids that walk over to hardees, McDonald's until school starts. The staff will just tell you with what the board allows them to hire they do there best.

Jenhoops,

Let me start by saying that the folks here are your friends and wish the very best for you and your DD.

I've been thinking of you a little more and this will be the first of two thought lines I thought might help you. Sometime later today or tomorrow I will post the other as I find time.
