It appears girls as young as 12 are now sexually active and the concern is they are not practicing safe sex. I just wonder if there should be concerns too as to 12 being an acceptable age for young girls to be sexually active. Do you think girls should be sexually active at 12 or should there be more education along those lines as well as the practicing of safe sex.
