Jesus is the last thing we need in our public school systems. And besides, even if he was in our schools it wouldn’t stop the kids from having sex.

I think that Jesus is exactly what is needed that and discipline. If parents took the time to care and be a part of their kids lives their wouldn’t be such a moral breakdown.

Jesus has NOTHING to do with this. I am a firm believer that religion is in all of our lives, but come on people. You parents need to stop blaming everyone else and GET INVOLVED with you OWN kids lives!!!!!!!!!! I am astonished on how many of my daughters friends parents never met me and let them sleepover! Get a clue.

Look what is going on in the world of religion nowadays. Maybe this is where the are getting it! Priests molesting little boys, I mean come on!

Are you kidding me. Sex at school has been happening since the 1970’s. The fact that everyone seems so shocked about it is beyond me. Do you not pay attention to the world around you? Keep an open communication line with your child(ren) and maybe, just maybe you won’t have to worry!!

I don’t think haveing jesus in school is going to do anythng to stop teens from haveing sex if that was the case maybe the pledge of alleiance should be brought back, talk to your kids about the reercussions and the deseases to haveing sex scare them a little to make them think.

Heidi is right. It’s called Good Parenting…active parenting! And take some responsibility people. PS: Jesus in school just wouldn’t work. If you haven’t realized it yet, not everyone is Christian in America.

Religion has nothing to do with it. Responsible parenting, ethical examples and talking directly to your kids are the most important things you can do for your children.

Separation of state and school is realistic. Expecting Jesus to make everything better is not. God gave us ALL a brain. It’s up to us to use it. The most important thing you can do to prevent this kind of thing is talk to your kids. From the time the are little until forever. It’s a conversation forever continued.

For those who continue living under a rock.. this is also happening in private religious schools. Even all girl schools have “activity” going on in the restrooms. The bottom line is get involved in your kids life, make your role an active one and stay informed on all aspects of their lives.

Jesus is a great guy, but it is still the parent’s responsibilty to educate their child on all the hormones surging through their blood and what the bodies response is. I am not sure why we all get so worked up over the natural response of the body. God gave us SCIENCE and really that is how sex should be studied. I think the biggest loss for all of us is that we attach “good” and “bad” to sexual feelings and then pass this down to our children when it is all perfectly natural to have these responses. Teaching kids that they have other options besides getting with someone else is not such a big deal. We all laugh about the teenage boy masturbating, but why is it so taboo for girls?

Imagine my embarrassment when I clicked on this story, and my speakers begin blaring across the office: “I HAD SEX AND ORAL SEX IN THE CAR!” I’m fiddling with the keyboard trying to shut the thing up. It seems to stop… as startled my co-workers return to their work.

Then it started again! “I HAD SEX AND ORAL SEX IN THE CAR!” Somebody leaned over and asked if I was on a porn site! (and I work for a church)

It’s not surprising that kids will have sex in school, if they have the opportunity. They’ll do it wherever and whenever they possibly can, because that is how we humans are constructed. I think we’d be wise to knock off our shock and horror at the idea that our teenagers want to have sex with each other, and just calm the heck down and emphasize healthy relationships, appropriate behavior, and high self worth.

Noname November 15, 2007, 10:58 PM

I’m calm.

Has sex in school been a common practice for our society through out the decades? Or has it only been in the last 30 years or so? What has changed? Why should we accept it as appropriate when clearly it is not. If you believe it is, Why do you have such low standards for our teens? Do you believe they are not capable of better?

Teens are having sex in school or on school property or somewhere else and even the teens that have open lines of communication with us usually will not tell us everything going on at school so as not to worry us. It is important for us to be good role models for them and to help develope there self esteem. We need to inform them of the risks of having sex and the consequenses assotiated with having unprotected sex. To inform them that these choices will be life altering choices and that they are in control of these choices. Not to do anything they do not feel good about or are not ready to do, especially because of peer pressure. You can’t take it back once you have done it. We need to keep reminding them that we are there for them and that they can talk to us about anything. As parents it is our job to be watchful of the slightest signs that there is something going on, any behavour that seems out of the ordinary for them and to keep ourselves informed as much as possible through sites such as this so we will be better equipped to deal with the challenges that come with raising children.

I am 18 years old I am currently in my last year of high school…I can say that there have been times when kids have been caught doing things that were not appropiate, and I truely believe that if Jesus was stil in the school alot of things that go on “school wise” wouldnt be happening not only the sex, but the killing, the bulling etc.. but i also think that is is the parents responsibility to teach there kids right from wrong, but whats funny is that its not just the kids in high school. i also work at a day care with kids from 0 to 12 and you would be surprise at some of the things that I hear.. I think the parents need to take a stand in raising there kids and not letting what they see on tv or in the world raise them cause they think its ok to do what they do in schools and its really not and sometimes what the parents allow them to wear provoks what goes on to….. If you add Jesus back and some discipline from the parents then we wouldnt have problems like sex in the bathrooms or really no where cause its a sin to have it outside of marriage

Thank you, Larae, for your mature and valuable comments. When we hear from a young adult like you we know that the shocking things we hear are balanced by the accomplishments of responsible students. It is extremely difficult for parents to guide their children into adulthood, but you have highlighted the important point: We parents must do what is difficult with love AND discipline. We have to be very clear to our children what standards of behavior they should adhere to, meet those standards ourselves and hold ourselves and them accountable for our/their actions. Good luck to you in the future, you’re off to a great start.
