  • Personally.. I think it is SICK. But things are done differently in other countries and nothing we say or think is going to change it. I sure do feel for her though.

  • I guess the mother doesn't know that we have internet here and can look up and see it it NOT in their customs. That mother is sickening and doesnt deserve to be around her daughter and poison her with her crap

    Answer by TALuke at 11:53 AM on Nov. 4, 2010

  • I had sex for the first time at 11. I had my period at 9. So, technically I could have easily gotten pregnant at 11... Which I can't even imagine. And I'm sure had it happened it would have been a HUGE deal - he was only 13 or so, so crazy doesn't even begin to describe what would have gone on... So the physical aspect doesn't shock me at all. What does shock me is the mother's reaction. However, in many parts of the world girls are married and having children at 11 or 12 all the time. It's really nothing new, and there is a BIG difference between a 10 yr old American and a 10 yr old Russian or Kenyan or whatever... Do I want to see my 10 yr old have a baby? HELL NO! But all in all, it doesn't shock me either, it happens all the time in these other countries, not that that makes it okay, it just makes it the norm for THEM...
