Just imagine that conversation between the two of them, the daughter crying until she's told.... I mean in a way serves her right. 13 is quite young. Sort of feel bad for op, knowing they couldn't do more to prevent it....

not even pregnancy, but I don't know any 13 year old even remotely emotionally ready for something as big as sex. as the parent, I'm not sure why she would be this gullible or be having sex in the first place.

By law she isn't old enough to consent to sex and make an informed decision on it. So I think you need to be helping her and supporting her and finding out why she had sex and who with. 13 is very young - she might not even have started her period - please don't play along.

Ah, yes. Let's scare our children into repressing behaviors and feelings they naturally get (& obviously don't know how to control) while new hormones are gushing through their veins. Fear is definitely the best option.

Sorry to break it to you, but when i was 13 (along with my friends) weren't really sexually hormonally, or at least not substantially. Let alone actually having sex. This really isn't ok, even if op's daughter really wanted to.

13? Though? Seriously? I used to joke that kids were fucking the second they hit teens. This is.... Wow. I'm actually shocked that 13 year old girls are out fucking.

I know the feeling #135, I'm in the same situation. I feel like within 3 years younger than us (depending on location, of course) everyone became wh*res; we're one of the last half-classy classes.

I'm 14 and every time I hear a story like this one I learn a new way to commit suicide on the Internet. Enjoy my comment as it brightens your day.

The least in teen pregnancy is one thing, but that doesn't mean that the younger generation hasn't started earlier and has easier access to adult content. Also, I'm sure that Plan B being widely available has a part in the teen pregnancy rates. It sucks people are blaming the parents. They can't watch everything the kids do and the kids may not care/ or under stand the potential consequences. Kids now are more aware of tech and may have an easier time hiding somethings.

55-- The U.S. Health and Human Services Department reported in September that pregnancy and abortion rates for teenagers have dropped over 10% in the past two years and have been declining steadily over the past 20 years. In a May article, the LA Times cited an independent study reporting similar drops. I teach high school and I also have known several pregnant teens over the years, so the numbers surprise me, too, but there does seem to be a trend.

Well my paranoid side says the numbers are being manipulated. It makes no sense that a middle class suburban highschools pregnancy rates would over quadruple in the 10+ years since I graduated to now. And somehow that's just an isolated raise. But who knows? Maybe with all the new agencies and laws the numbers aren't exactly doctored as much as they are "true" to an exact letter definition.

You also have to factor in that teen pregnancy is more acceptable (and thus visible) than it was in prior generations, where if your teen daughter got pregnant it was covered up.

I'm 19 and still haven't had a girlfriend. I don't mind though, I'd rather wait for the right girl than commit to a relationship that's bound to fail just for the sake of being in a relationship.

I did kiss a boy when I was thirteen but wasn't sexually active until I was seventeen. And for the people saying that it is imperative that teenage sex leeds to teenage pregnancy: I had my first kid at 28. You just need to know how to use protection and be slightly paranoid about safety.

As a 26 year old... I lost my virginity at 13. I turned out fine, no STDs, no pregnancies. Totally normal attitude towards sex and relationships. I think it's completely circumstantial.

Well maybe you should talk to her about safety in regards to sex. If she will continue to be active, she should at least know about precautions she can take. Based on her reaction, she is not fully informed.
