Momvestigation: One in five kids has witnessed sex in school. Now, hear their side of the story.
"Kids in my school are always hooking up or having sex in the closets, bathrooms or auditorium. I can't describe the nauseating feeling of walking down the hall and having to dodge the used condom on the ground." -- Kristen, 18, Atlanta
On Friday, we shared the results of our groundbreaking survey: One in five kids has witnessed sex in school. In this segment, called "Heard It, Saw It," you'll hear firsthand accounts from teens and tweens who've seen sex in the classroom, the girls' bathroom ... even during a high-school basketball game. These kids are from all parts of the country and all walks of life, but their stories are disturbingly similar. They've witnessed foreplay, oral sex and intercourse on school grounds during school hours. In our survey of 500 teens between 12 and 17, only 14.8 percent of kids said they'd ever tell their parents if they witnessed sex in school.
|For moms, this is a total wake-up call. You'll also hear a child psychologist, a family counselor and CosmoGIRL!'s editor-in-chief weigh in on why this is happening. In this tell-all age of Facebook profiles and celebrity sex tapes, are things like modesty, privacy and boundaries becoming things of the past? Warning: What you're about to watch is graphic and raw, but it's something every mom in America can't afford to miss.|
Tomorrow: Hear from kids who've had sex at school, in their own words.
