    That sux! To have your childhood ended like that is so...disturbing.

    The worst I ever heard, was a guy I met, who was a great-grandfather.......
    AT 40!!!
    And yes, he was from W. Virginia

    Well, if you insist.... biologically we're ready to make babies when we're ready, it's only societal rules and norms that pushes that time so far out. Our bodies wouldn't have the capability to procreate at a young age unless that's what we were supposed to do.....

    I'm just playing devil's advocate there, though, this is obviously awful from a realistic standpoint.

    Agreed Bob. It's the social implications that I was hinting at. Then again, I would not want my son to be a father at 13. But, that's just me.

    I agree. It is horrible both for the "parents" and that innocent child.

    I'm just playing devil's advocate there, though, this is obviously awful from a realistic standpoint.
    It is awful from a biological standpoint as well. Human beings are physically capable of reproduction after puberty, but boys, and especially girls, are still developing physically. Even if human beings were fully physically mature after puberty, the mental and emotional maturity that contributes to a successful child rearing experience is not present at that time. Hence, the societal rules and norms conferring legal adult status.

    I understand that you are playing "devils advocate", but it is so sad that many people don't understand that human reproduction is about replacing yourself with an independent, contributing member of society rather than just running off a copy of yourself. Otherwise, we are no better than animals.

    That child's parents are going to be ones who are really going to be bringing the baby up. My younger son is 12. I can't see him bringing up a child when he is still learning about morals and the way of the world.

    I'm at a loss for words.

    Neither my 14 year old son, nor even my 16, 18 and 20 years old daughters are even close to being ready for that.

    Other than avoiding pregnancy, there are other reasons for being on birth control.

    I would take anything printed in "The Sun" with a grain of salt, they're similar to our "The Enquirer".

    Folks, let's look from the bright side even if it's totally wrong.

    Let's see. The 13 year old dad may have a chance to see his grand grand grandson if his sons and grandsons were to follow his footsteps. I doubt it but you never know. :D

    Well, technically I was ready biologically at birth to crap in my pants, and at that stage of life it was understandable, but I'm here to tell you ..... it ain't a pretty sight at this stage of my life.
    (can be verified by my sons)

    There's a time for everything , and 13/15 isn't it.

    That was to respond to Sal's Lasareath "Was she the baby Sitter?"

    So since she now has a baby my response. "She's now just that no ones takes back later, and there's no cash to add to pocket.;)


    But I could make it clearer by...

    She's now. Just that no ones takes the baby back later, and there's no cash to add to pocket later. ;)

    I caught a bit of an interview on the news, it went something like this...

    Reporter - "How will you support your baby financially"?
    13 yr old - "Whats financially"?
    Reporter - (laughs). "I mean what will you do for money"?
    13 yr old - "I dunno"
