comment Should I allow or forbid my son to visit the education of a religion that I do not share?
It is necessary to show the rationale for why a parent may choose to remove their child from a "religious education" class, and that those reasons cannot be explained to a seven year old.

comment Woman: Afraid of infants/newborns
@scrappedcola Having kids isn't even enough. My wife and I are asked at least once a week when we're having a boy because we have two girls. "But, who are you going to do man stuff with?" Pff, my girls like football, and I like tea parties. I don't need a boy to have a child I can have fun with.

comment What should we do when our 15 year old wants sex with his 13 year old girlfriend?
As for the two years part, that was a summary from the bbc: bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4hPrqzTRSBvvzHkTckNYNZ5/… which summarizes it as: A boy who has sex with a girl under 16 is breaking the law. Even if she agrees. If she is 13-15, the boy could go to prison for two years. If she is under 13 he could be sentenced to life imprisonment. A girl age 16 or over who has sex with a boy under 16 can be prosecuted for indecent assault.

legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2003/42/pdfs/ukpga_20030042_en.pdf - Part 1, Section 5 "Rape of a child under 13": "he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person with his penis" compared to Section 6 "Assault of a child under 13 by penetration": "he intentionally penetrates the vagina or anus of another person with a part of his body or anything else" - a penis is special cased as rape. If you do not have a penis, you cannot commit that offense.

@Mari-LouA They may have not skipped it, they may have simply hid it from the parents, as teenagers are so prone to do.

I have added all I really want to touch on for the legal system. This is parenting.stackexchange, not legal.stackexchange. OP knows there could be major consequences for his son already, I'm assuming he's either well versed on the laws, and will do further research anyway. And his son should too. The result should be a natural byproduct of their conversation.

If a boy has sex with an underage girl (under 16) no matter his age, he has committed a sexual assault and he faces a 2 year prison sentence if she's 13-15, and life in prison if under 13. If a girl has sex with an underage boy (no matter her age) she has committed an indecent assault. (That's right, a boy and a girl doing the exact same thing to each other face different penalties...)

As near as I can tell, both being under the age of consent is still an offense. I'm not sure why, but I'm guessing it's to scare kids into ignoring the natural signals their bodies send them because educating isn't something that can be done through the school and through the law, but punishing them is. Not that I'm opinionated or anything.

You say that everything about this situation is bad, but to me it looks like 1) your child is exploring himself (which isn't in and of itself a bad thing) and 2) you're aware of the behaviors before something life-changing happens they aren't prepared for (STIs, pregnancy) - so not everything is bad!

comment Maintaining contact with a one year old in a long distance situation
How welcome is mom in this? I mean, this could be a move for work purposes or a move because we're leaving data picture. I don't want to pry, I just want to get an understanding of what kind of support you have in this endeavor.

comment How can I prevent my parents' divorce?
This might be hard to understand, but to take a lesson from Jurassic Park "Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should." You might not want your parents to get a divorce, but have you considered whether or not it's better (for everyone involved) that they do?

comment How do I handle a 10 year old girl “in love”?
@LCIII I have to disagree with that - this is not a good question. This falls squarely under the "needs work" category. Right off the top, it needs 1. background on this diary and how the knowledge came about, 2. what the desired outcome is, and 3. if (and if so, why) this is viewed as a problem.

comment How do I handle a 10 year old girl “in love”?
@KyleStrand The easiest explanation is a poor grasp of English. But I have heard the phrase "discipline him" in conjunction with teach them discipline as opposed to punishing them from several people, although when I think about it it's always in conjunction with a boy and not a girl, and admittedly exclusive with Asian parents (a Vietnamese family and two Korean families).

By discipline, do you mean punish? Or do you simply want to approach this situation in a disciplined manner?

I'll grant that any tool can be abused. I still think my brother (who always said the same thing your father did) was just flat out wrong.

@user3143 That was a popular phrase where I was from too, and I've never found it to be true. Condiments enhance good flavor, not mask it.

comment Extended family not catering for baby's routine
How firm are you on this 30 minutes? I have seen times where a friend will evoke the "oh that's her naptime" rule as if it's set in stone, but if it's something she wants to do suddenly it's a little more flexible. If you bend the schedule for some things and not others, I can understand why they might be a little upset. (My personal take is they should just "go with it" but I at least see where they're coming from if that's the case.)
