Some schools are "encouraging" students to make these pledges. My son refused and was asked for an explanation of his refusal. He told them it was none of their business.
I think many of the kids play along and sign the paper.
I did the same thing your kid did when I was in school (refuse to sign such nonsense).
Good for him.
You are so right.
Teenagers are teenagers. I was one....once..
I wish that my little girl was not going to be one soon!!!
I try to put her on the correct path but a teenager has their own mind.
I talk to her about sex and the ramifications of an early age. I just pray that she listens to me.
