I told her nope, she then said that if i would take her, she would have sex with me, note the real statment was something that starts with a f and in with brians out,

and we wonder whats wrong with kids today?, its easy, moms and dads who turn there kids over to the TV, video games, other kids, and the goverment to watch.,
Bottom line is if you have a kid, its your job to take care of it, the best you can. not just let them run streets or with a guy 3 years older.
WOW that is terrible!!

I don't think parents do much different now adays...they just have different vices....like today it's t.v etc...but my mom told me that when she was growing up, the eldest was put to work cleaning and taking care of the other children or they were sent outside to play. (Mind you, this is in rural sask).

You also have to consider that today's children are sexually maturing faster because of the hormones we put in food and I know for myself that buying organic food is sometimes outside of my budget.

Both kids are under 18. So suing because he know she was under 18 is crazy... How do we know she didn't start it? Last time I checked it take 2. I hope this case gets thrown out. While those parents are at it why don't they sue the school, network and cable tv, the goverment... because you know it's everyone else's fault never the parents.... This is why certian people just should never be allowed to have kids, they don't pay any attention to them then get mad when they do something wrong. give me a break!!

She could have started it. My nephew's ex-Mother-in-law seduced her boyfriend at 13 and had her first baby at 14. (I'm so glad she's the ex-MIL. I just wished she wasn't the grandmother of nephew's oldest 2 kids!)

As for the growing up too quick, I was reading Cosmo at 11. Most of my friends had sex between 14 and 16. And we were all pretty mature for our ages. But as far as doing what your parents tell you, I think that the best you can do is to seriously take what they say on board, think about it, and make your own decision. Its meant that I'm keeping a few things from my parents, but I think its worth it in the long run.

how stupid can people get. If it wasn't him she had sex with it would have been with someone else.

Maybe, but we don't know that. We don't know this girl and we have very little information about this case.

The only way this MIGHT have any grounds is if they were sleeping together at his house with the parents knowing about it. Like parents who supply liquor for kids. You never know about some people. But even so, you don't let a 13 year old date a 16 year old, definetly not car dates.

I agree, Katie! I was also playing with barbies until I was 12! I am almost terrified to bring a child into this world. Most kids nowadays have no respect for themselves or anyone around them, including their parents. It is turning into an awful world! And I also agree that sex was the last thing on my mind when I was 13! I wasn't too sheltered but didn't even know much about it then either.....

Actually, I think that the suit is an interesting one. If the boy is old enough to be expected to handle a car responsibly, he's old enough to be expected to handle his other matters resposibly as well. As for the girl's parents, the jury (or judge if both parties agree to a court trial) will be deciding how much contributory negligence to assign to the girl's behavior. And the amount of damages will have to be decided, as well. For instance, if the girl has needed counseling sessions, or if her quality of life has been negatively affected, and it can be proven that the sex caused it, then maybe her parents have damages. If there aren't damages, or if the evidence simply isn't there, the whole thing will be "non-suited" at the status hearings.
What I am finding very worrisome is how the general public has become very "anti-lawsuit", and as a result, the insurance companies are doing great at winning the lawsuits. For instance, our local ski area has never lost a lawsuit yet, even the latest, where a snowboarder was permanently injured when his board got caught on a buried piece of chainlink fence; the ski patrol didn't mark the hazard because even they were unaware of it's existence; since the '70s, various agencies had violated the ski area for not removing the fencing; the mountain simply paid the fines and ignored the inevitable.
And up here, in this county, no one has ever won a lawsuit involving snow and ice. A little girl was crushed to death in the preschool playground in 1998 by a huge ice slab from a roof next door; there had been 4 warnings by the volunteer fire dept. that the ice slab was dangerous. There was no reason that the slab wasnt' removed and the playground fence wasn't roped off, either. and there have been numerous times when people have fallen on black ice outside businesses that just don't bother to put out ice melt, and scrape the ice (I'm not talking about new ice, either, just incidents that happen clearly due to negligence and laziness), permanent back and neck injuries result, but the juries continue to rule against the plaintiffs. That is why insurance companies insist on jury trials rather than court trials
It's so much easier to defense a civil case than to complain it, esp of this sort, I don't think that the girl's parents stand much of a chance; it will be interesting to see how it all pans out...

Im sorry i have to go against that, i do believe that at 13 it is young, but alot of girls are really curious and she was probably a curious 13 year old, dont forget alot of 13 year olds tend to look older now days and the boy is mentally 2 years younger anyway!

SO i dont blame the poor boy, she was just a little horny girl

To me, the question of the lawsuit isn't about the kids. It is: are the boy's parents more responsible for the actions of their son than the girl's parents are for keeping track of their girl?

There are several specifics we don't know about the case.

Were the girl's parents assured by the boy's parents that their daughter would be properly supervised while at the boy's house?

Or did they even know she was over there?

The answers to questions like these will direct how the case turns out.
