See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Okay so here's the thing. My sister has a teenage daughter (14 years old) and last Wednesday while she and I were at the grocery store getting the last few items before the holiday, she got a phonecall from the school that her daughter (my neice) had been suspended and was told to come to her school to pick her up. She and I went to the school where she spoke to the asistant principal who informed her that my neice had been caught engaging in sexual acts with two boys, yes not one but TWO young boys her age. Imagine our shock. Apparently they'd gone into one of the restrooms and locked the door from the inside , anyway someone noticed the doors were locked and sent a janitor to open them and there she was with these two boys. Needless to say my sister was horrified... They've had the sex talk and my sister is pretty open with her daughter, she's raised two other kids who are more or less adults now (21 and 19). she knows she can talk to her mom about anything so it's not an issue where she doesn't have anyone to talk to.
Obviously it's concerning for any parent when your 14 year old daughter is having sex, she's too young and is not ready to deal with all the possible consequences of such an act. I mean there are STD's and early pregnancies etc, all of which my sister has explained to her. At this point my sister is at a complete lost for what to do, she keeps asking me, and it's by far the hardest question someone has asked me. My daugter is only 10 years old, and she's still playing with her barbies and watching cartoons so I really don't have much advise for her (usually she's the one giving me advice). So I was wondering if any moms here who have dealt with anything remotely similar or even if you haven't and you feel like you might have a clue.
