So I came across an article this morning with a headline that made me laugh, "co-ed dorms linked to increased drinking, sex" and I thought to myself, do we really need an article to tell us that? http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/health&id=7138715
I know that a lot of parents would like to think that nothing happens at college that they need to worry about but I also think most parents are realistic when it comes to what their kids are going to be exposed to at college.
Dorm rooms, even if they are all female or all male, are still going to be a place where kids get together and do things that their parents don't want them doing, like drinking, having sex and other activities. It just makes sense that if you start mixing the sexes in dorms what's going to happen is the sexes are going to mix more often!
I'm not saying that co-ed dorms are a good idea or a bad one, I'm just saying that the article didn't need to be written. We know what's going on.
