Rome: In a weird incident that was reported by online newspaper, a 12-year-old girl becomes mother of a baby boy in southern Italy whose father is a 13-year-old classmate.
According to doctors, the girl has delivered a 3 kg baby boy last week through a caesarian section in a private clinic in the city of Bari.
The children’s families are said to be middle-class and decided they wanted to keep the baby.
In Italy younger children are having sex in the early stage of life now a days, the Puglia region’s guarantor for minors, said Rosi Paparella, calling the Bari case “an alarm bell”.
Paparella blamed the problem of children having children on inadequate sex education in schools and at home, the ready availability of pornography and a lack of parental supervision.
