Nope he doesn't seem to be taking after his Uncle He's just too busy with football, his DS, PC etc to be bothered with girls at the moment. Am sure that will change quick enough!

Although apparently he reckons Cheryl Cole is hot.......think he may be setting his sights a bit high.

That's what my mom thought as well (if you exchange DS with "Amiga"...)...

So you reckon that it's a cover, so that our friends from the subcontinent aren't embarrassed.

btw - if a woman says that size isn't important, she's just shallow.

Re: Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland

To be honest i'm not surprised. My ex was already having sex at the age of 12 and from I can gather that is not that unusual here (or in ireland for that matter ).

Ha you got a point, it is not free cheese they need to give out, its free pre - puberty condoms !

Millso for Lord Mayor of Dublin !

On topic(ish), do Swiss kids at age 12 have no hobbies or so? fields to play in, mountains to climb,cheese to make..

Baffled..

Same here. Back in my day as a 12 year old, we would just hold hands with our boyfriends, get a peck on the cheek and write "Roses are red" poems to each other. The more "out there" girls would French-kiss boys but that was it.

I have no idea how I'm going to deal with this stuff when my 2 are older *sigh*

Re: Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland

This is such a shocking topic in my opinion but thanks to people on EF, I still got a good laugh!

I am stressing about how I am going to protect my kids to fall in this ''fashion''.

Assuming you mean a convent, you have been keeping abreast (ooerr missus) of events coming to light over the last few years?
