It might not be physical abuse, but hearing your parents have sex can certainly cause mental and emotional scars. Perhaps that's why a 15-year-old Florida teen called 911 last week when she heard her mother having sex in the next room. She says she "felt disrespected" when her mother invited a man over at 4 AM and began having loud sex. Initially the girl asked to be placed in a Christian children's shelter, but eventually changed her mind, not wanting to leave home because it was almost time for school.
