As a father, I am greatly concerned about this issue. My kids are 9 and 6 now, but I fear they will be pushed into adolescence too early. So I enjoy every minute of their childhood I can.
I read an article a year or two back that talked about how the average age of menarche in the US was 14 in 1900. Now it's 12. That's what scares me most. Girls are physically able to get pregnant long before they have the maturity to deal with it. Combine that with a culture that virtually screams out, "Have all the sex you can!!!" and you have a recipe for disaster.
Show me a man who is twenty and not a liberal, and I will show you a man with no heart.
Show me a man who is forty and not a conservative, and I will show you a man with no brain.
