are both "going out" each with a girl in their grade.  I'm not ready for this.  They're still my babies!

OMG.....  A baby @12!  How long ago was that?  I was still trying to figure out how to french kiss - forget having sex at age 12. (sister Bootygirl had to explain the finer details to me of french kissing and sex)

Thankfully my 9yd old girl has no interest in boys and I don't see that changing any time soon.

She was 11 when she was knocked up... by her older sister's no-good 17-yr old bf... we were in 6th grade.

Dang, Preach, where did you grow up?! When I was 10, which was not quite 20 years ago, "going out" meant you sat together in the lunchroom and held hands on the playground. By junior high (7th grade in my school district, back then), some girls were getting slutty, but in elementary school, kids just generally weren't unchaperoned in co-ed groups. If you had a co-ed birthday party, parents were there. And by 10, most girls wanted to have sleepover birthdays anyway, so no boys allowed. But I know a lot has changed in 20 years.

You should have them both watch “Jersey Shore”, y’know, so they can learn the proper way for a gentleman to behave around girls.

We had a 6th grader (12 yrs old ish) get preggo when I was in middle school. The school was set up for 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

I don't think "going out" in elementary school means "unchaperoned" events, either. I'd guess it's more of the holding hands type of stuff you mentioned earlier. But I could be wrong.

Obviously this is the parent's fault for not teaching them early AND OFTEN that girls are ICKY!!!!

P.S.  Better get to the pharmacy.

Oh, I'm not saying it doesn't happen. And I think there was a big change once you went to junior high - in my school district, elementary school was K through 6 (though they've since changed it), so up to age 12, you were still pretty protected. But like I said, I know things have changed even since you and I were that age.

There was a girl in my class who had a baby at age 12 also.  There was also this girl a year ahead of me who graduated high school with 3 kids, each with a different father.  Nothing suprises me anymore.

(I grew up in the middle of nowhere, also.)

BUT! seriously - babies before you're 13 - - in our society???  IF I ever decide to have children - - that is what scares the be-jeebus out of me!!  Girls these days can't wait to grow up and I REALLY don't get it!!  You can't tell the difference between a 9 year old and a 29-year old sometimes!!

While I'm still chuckling after going through and reading all the posts, I still have to say this to you, Preach - WHY DIDN'T YOU WEAR A CONDOM AT LEAST??!!

And that is the parents fault for letting them dress like that. They need to PARENT not befriend their kids (and yes, I have a 13 yr old boy who fortunately hasn't expressed and interest in girls yet!)

I'm not a parent - so I can't speak from experience.  But for that supposed tween or teen - it's sometimes could be a matter wanting to fit in...

I've gotta say, 10 or 12 is just too young to have "girlfriends" or "boyfriends."  Just my worthless opinion.
