Child with child.

A ten year old girl became a mother yesterday in Brazil. Mother and baby are doing well. [Folha de São Paulo]

The father is a boyfriend and it's not a case of abuse, the paper says.

I'm highly disturbed by this but I couldn't find any further details - that kids are getting sexualized earlier in life is a sad effect of our culture: the missed (and so important) childhood. But are their bodies adapting and evolving as well?

More to come...
