Girl, 12, allowed to live with boyfriend, 15, ends up pregnant

A 12-year-old girl who was allowed to live with her 15-year-old boyfriend is about to become one of Australia's youngest mothers.

The girl's mother allowed the couple to begin living together when the girl was just 11-years-old, and that's when the two started sharing a bed together.

When the girl's father — who does not live with her — complained several times to staff at the New South Wales Department of Community Services, they failed to do anything about the situation, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The girl's father discovered his daughter was pregnant in March when he gained custody of her.

Authorities said because the children were both under the age of consent, and the girl failed to make a complaint of sexual abuse when she was interviewed, they were unable to act.

The girl will be offered continuing counseling, parenting advice and educational services. A plan is also in place to provide care for the baby — when the child is born later this year.

Your reaction?  Would you ever allow your teenage daughter to live with her teenage boyfriend?

I'd like to say never, never, never, but when she is 17, who knows how I'll feel?

But 12? Not on your life.....

She's 12, she's not even a teenager.  My dd is 14 and I wouldn't let her do that.  That dad has a right to be upset.  I saw an article much longer than this one, more about the mom's relationship and I just get a weird feeling like this involves more than just a mom letting her dd be loose.

The mom should be investigated for child neglect.

I'm sorry...but no freaking way this would be happening. That mother needs a swift kick for allowing this to happen, along with the boys parents. My DH moved out when he was 16 and lived with his gf and I think that is too young. 17 MAYBE. But not younger.

THE acticle said the girl failed to report sex abuse? I hope they don't mean by the boyfriend. THey are both under age. It should be the parents of the two child. WHat about the boys parents?
