13 Year-old boy becomes a father.
This boy of 13, who looks 8 has become a father.
The sexualisation of children has gone so far, that children are now begetting chlidren. I agree with the last comment below that sex education normalising sex for children is counterproductive.
From the Sun:
A baby-faced boy in the UK has become father, but when asked how he would cope financially he responded, “What’s financially?”
Alfie Patton, 13, became a dad this week after his 15-year-old girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman, gave birth to little Maisie Roxanne.
The boy has told Britain’s Sun he “thought it would be good to have a baby.”
“I didn’t think about how we could afford it,” he said.
“I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometime gives me 10 pounds.
“When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble.
“We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react.
Alfie, who stands only 125 cm high, had a single night of unprotected sex with Chantelle when he was just 12.
Christian groups have commended the teenagers’ decision to keep the baby.
Michaela Aston, of the anti-abortion Christian charity LIFE, told the Sun: “We commend these teenagers for their courage in bringing their child into the world.
“At the same time this is symptomatic of the over-sexualisation of our youngsters and shows the policy of value-free sex education just isn’t working.”
