Just tuning in now a little later than most. My take- Nevermind the ethics of it all... my biggest question is, what do a 23 year old and 15 year old have in common??? Your lives are in two totally different places and maturity levels- or at least they should be. What does she talk about, how much she hates her teachers? American Idol?  I just can't see where a connection would be possible given such a gap. I've been working with high school kids for the past 3 years and it doesn't take long to realize that despite sometimes having a "mature" appearance, mentally and experientially we live in two different worlds.
