These are from a Dr phil show : what are your opinions ??
"I started having sex when I was 12," reveals Danielle. "I think I'm old enough and mature enough to make my own decisions about sex."
Her mother, Elaine, disagrees. "Danielle is doing things promiscuously with boys that I don't think she should," she says. "Recently, Danielle asked me if I would buy condoms for her. I just said to her, 'If you think I'm going to condone a 13-year-old having sex and buy you condoms, I'm not!'"
Elaine has also found notes from Danielle's friends that asked "Did you get any last night? I'm jealous. I didn't."
"I think my mom should help me get birth control because I won't stop having sex," says Danielle. "A lot of girls my age have sex because the boys like you a lot better and you're a lot more popular. If I were to get pregnant right now, I feel that I could take care of the child. I would get a job at the zoo, working at the concession stand or something."
Carolyn recently made headlines when she gave birth to a little boy at 55 years old. She also has a 3-year-old daughter. "I've had a lot of people ask me why I waited so long to have my children," she says. "My focus from high school on was college and career."
Carolyn and her husband tried to have a baby when they were married 15 years ago, but she never got pregnant. "When I was 42, we made the decision to freeze our embryos for later use," she explains.
After graduating from law school and separating from her husband, Carolyn decided she was ready to use their embryos. "My first couple of attempts did not work. Then, lo and behold, the pregnancy took! I was 52 when I had my daughter." Although Carolyn was concerned about her age, her pregnancy went very well. "When I was 54, I asked my obstetrician, 'Am I healthy enough to do this again?' And he says, 'You know Carolyn, you are.' And so I did it again."
