I am SOOO sick of the stories about this stupid 17 year old girl who had the photos of the AFL players. Now she is supposed to have been having sex with a 40 something year old man for weeks at a motel????
Where are her parents? Why arent they doing anything?????
If that was my 17 year old I would not be letting this happen!!!!
I think its really sad what this girl has done but I dont think you can blame the parents.
A 17 year old girl is not a child, she's 1 year off being classified as an "adult". She has the body of a woman but not the maturity. She is able to drive, has probably tried alcohol, drugs and had sex.
You have to wonder what sort of life she has had that lead her to where she is but I dont think you can solely lay the blame for her actions at her parents feet. Get yourself a teenager and you'll soon be viewing this differently.
Its all well and good to think "I would not let this happen"... its another matter entirely if you can actually stop it from happening.
You can be the best parent in the world and your child can "go off the rails"... who knows what is really going on in that girls life.
