  Underage Sex 2 Feb 2006  
What do you do if you discover your child is sexually active?

Coronation Street's current storyline follows Sally Webster's horror as she discovers her daughter Rosie is having underage sex with her boyfriend. What do you do if you discover your son or daughter is sexually active? Do you, like Sally, try and stop them from seeing each other, or do you take a more pragmatic approach? And are we as parents guilty of double standards when it comes to sons and daughters?

Katie Grant and Kate Figes, both mothers of teenagers, join Jenni to discuss how they would handle the discovery.
