A mother has been jailed for three months and given an 18-month community corrections order for drink driving with 10 children in her four-wheel-drive.
Jeremy E Harrison's insight:

I think this mother is absolutely silly. Why would you drink drive with that many lives at risk she definetly deserves the jail time and definetly deserves her punishment. 10 children in a car with a drunk mother if i was the child i would have told her not to drive and to just call a taxi or husband or friend.

Jeremy E Harrison's comment, May 16, 2013 7:44 PM
She should not be driving with all those lives at risk all 10 children could have died and even those who are on the road with her being at risk.

Sex education 'doesn't cut teen pregnancy rate' claims academic - Telegraph | PDHPE | Scoop.it
Sex education lessons and freely handing out contraception to young people has little impact on teenage pregnancy rates, according to a controversial study.
Jeremy E Harrison's insight:

This article talks about how schools are giving good sex education but is still doing nothing to the teen pregancy rates. This may be a result of being drunk at the time or being on drugs or relying on bad methods to stop pregnacy. It also said that out of 1,000 7-10 of those become pregnant in there teens.
