Raising kids in this day and age has got to be a very daunting task. Deciding when to get detailed about the birds and the bees is a major decision, especially for a woman who is the primary caregiver of two young boys. Such is the quandary Brandi Glanville finds herself in as her son Mason prepared for his first date. Mason is 12 which places him in middle school, most likely in the seventh grade.
I don’t pretend to have the answers for how a parent should approach this, but I do wonder if 12 is a bit young for actual dating. Brandi seems okay with whatever the actual plan is, perhaps it’s a group of kids going out together? Or two kids meeting up at sporting event. He plan for the occasion was to give Mason a written homework assignment. Click through for the questionnaire.
As you can imagine, the question about whether or not her 12 year old son’s “date” is a virgin or not is what sparked the outrage. Is this something she expects him to ask her prior to their date? On the date? Ascertain through asking around on the middle school playground? I’m not sure. Why not just ask if she has a period yet, or if she is on birth control and other extremely person questions that are none of his business?
For me, I found the numerous grammatical and spelling errors the most egregious thing about this little quiz. I mean after all she is a New York Times Best Selling author. Seriously, this whole ghost writing thing should be illegal. Doesn’t she have spell check? Grammar check? I get I can be loosey goosey with my own spelling and grammar, but I assure you that everything was triple checked and edited before anything went to a student. Not to mention all of Brandi’s clapping back on the Internet to those outraged by the virginity question included numerous usage errors regarding your/you’re.
I’m also a bit concerned about the question about what scares her and “religious or not?” What is the correct answer to the religion question in L.A.?
So what is your verdict on this latest Brandi blunder? Is it common practice to ask 12 year olds about their virginity these days? Do you see anything wrong with this questionnaire that Brandi was so proud of she posted it to the Internet?
