Teen sex and parent ground rules
90
Wed, 08-24-2011 - 4:49pm

I am looking for some thoughts on the subject of setting ground rules, and opinions on how others would have handled my situation.

Shortly after my DD turned 13, she attended a family gathering, bringing her "partner", a 14-year old boy she introduced as her "boyfriend".

There is a gal with a daughter the age of our oldest who's daughter came home preggers from college last Christmas by her long time HS BF. Both were at two different big state universities, about 90 miles apart from each other, and I guess they had a few study sessions together during the semester.

On the subject of having children young, here is a photo from today's local newspaper, showing 5 generations - a newborn, 19 year old mother, 35 year old grandmother, 52 year old great-grandmother and a 72 year old great-great-grandmother.

Very nice picture! We had a 5 generation picture taken when my oldest was born, my great grandfather at the time was in his early 90's. He lived for about 3 years after she was born before passing.

Are you Canadian? There are several points you have made that have made me think you are in Canada.

if you are, the age of consent is 16, not 15.

You mean I'm old enough to be a great grandmother?

While it's a cute picture I would definitely find it out of the norm in my area to see a 35 year old grandma and a 52 year old great grandma. That means they were 16 and 17 respectively when they started having kids. I know these things happen but I just don't *personally* know families of this generation that routinely start popping them out at such a young age generation after generation. Great Great grandma - who you might almost expect to have had a child by 18 or 19 was the oldest to have one at 20!
