A school district in MA is considering offering condoms to students as young as 12, they are seeing sexual activity, STDs and pregnancy affecting kids even at this age.

Both of my boys were routinely supervised at the age of 12, but it wasn't always.

My son is 12 and my daughter 13. I don't think that either of them is old enough to have a sexual relationship, but I also don't think that either of them is mature enough to come to me for protection if they did. I can't even imagine kids this age pre-planning sex. Maybe normalizing condoms for sex isn't such a terrible thing. Maybe they ought to be handing them out like candy. Let the kids blow them up like balloons, just on the off chance that a few will end up in the purses, backpacks, and wallets of the kids who might just find themselves in the situation to put them to use.
