I agree, In some ways its a good thing that the parents are going to help though, if the parents wernt going to help then they kids wouldnt have the guidence that the partly do now. Although i do agree that its wrong they should be having a baby, i mean there are people out there who cant have a baby and then you have kids having kids. Thats terrible. 16 is the legal age in england and if the girl is going to be 16 soon legally if they have sex again he can be arrested. People need to learn about protection!!!

I'm disgusted by the parents of the boy and girl... Where the hell were they?? Times are different now.

I'm completely disgusted by the media. These children have no place on the front page of any newspaper. Where has their decency gone? In today's world these kids are going to need HELP not publicity and shame.
I was actually having that discussion with someone just yesterday about this. Back in the day, marrying and having children that young was the common thing to do. Had this happened years back, it wouldn't have been something to make the front cover of a newspaper.
