This was a curious report.
First of all, it was amazing that the pact was made among teens in a local high school could make such a big news. It was reported in Japan, too. This became a big news because it could happen anywhere in the world and because this incidence will have even greater ramification in the future.
During the discussion with an expert, she said that kids are only able to think about very short period of their life. This is what I learned when I was a student teacher. They live in NOW. What they are doing, what they are thinking is their everything. When they believe having a baby is cool, they do have one. Babies are not accessories. They have future as well as parents, I mean those high school students. Without secure jobs or financial stability, parents will have a hard time raising kids. For kids, they might not be able to get proper education from these parents. This pact is really a downer for both parents and babies. But still, babies are innocent. Bright, successful future might await them. Nothing can deprive them of happy future.
We need to hear a lot of stories from high school girls, school authorities, possible fathers, girls' parents and so on, and I'm sure CNN will have a lot of interviews on this report.
