Three schoolgirl sisters have given birth aged 12, 14 and 16.
“Their mother Julie Atkins, 38, who said the girls were too young and had ruined their lives, blamed schools for providing poor quality sex education.” (BBC)
Why on earth does she think it’s the schools responsibility to teach her kids about sex? It should be taught at school, but surely sex education should begin well before the age of 12, and IMO it should begin at home. Two of them discovered they were pregnant after the first one had given birth, so it’s not like the topic wouldn’t have come up in conversation once or twice.
