In 1996 an outbreak of syphilis struck a group of teenagers in the affluent community of Conyers, Georgia. When epidemiologists interviewed the victims, they were shocked by what they heard: children as young as fourteen named scores of sexual partners, others told of orgies and sex parties.  FRONTLINE uncovers the roots of the Conyers syphilis epidemic and reveals a community struggling with teenage drug use, sex, aimlessness, and cynicism.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Lost Children of Rockdale County DVD:

I was VERY shocked when I heard about this documentary. I have lived in Conyers for my entire life, a total of 17 years. Actually...not really THAT shocked, because all of this stuff still goes on today. COME BACK AND DO A PART 2!!

An uncomfortable must watch video

By FordWes1982

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Lost Children of Rockdale County DVD:

This documentary concerns a heretofore unheard of problem, an epidemic of venerial disease among early teen caucasians from well-to-do families. Modern suburbia isn't the refuse from social problems and misbehaving teens that upwardly mobile parents have thought. Listen to interviews of young girls that have had over 100 sexual partners prior to their sweet sixteenth birthday, sometimes having intercourse with as many as three young boys simultaneously. Believe it or not this could be representative of a neighborhood near you. Their stories are not unique. If you: have teenagers, work with teenagers or want to, you must watch this video. Please be prepared to be shocked with the candor.

The Lost Children of Rockdale County

By Ford Wes

from Loudon, TN

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Lost Children of Rockdale County DVD:

This is a tragic as well as compelling documentary. The images I saw have never left me. I saddens me to see evidence that my worse fears have been actualized. After working hard, earning a good salary and buying a nice home in suburbia we have created our own nightmare. It saddens me also that so many of my friends are in denial. Every school teacher, every social worker, every pastor should watch this.

Western Civilization is Over

By The Philosopher

from Paducah KY

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Lost Children of Rockdale County DVD:

If you want to know why America is headed into the toilet. Just watch this documentary. It documents the breakup of families and the effects on the children. Everyone in America needs to see this documentary. Three cheers to the producers. I bought it and gave it to a high school principal to watch to determine if it was an isolated incident or not. I profess to be a very conservative person, but all the liberals that have talked to who have seen it become very depressed. The first person that told me about it was an atheist. His response was Western Civilization was over. We need young men to love their women. Sex before marriage will destroy young mens hearts and they will be irresponsible. They will only think about theirselves. They will not care about their wives or their children. As the Bible says, wine and whoredom doth take away the heart. Without responsible men, our nation is doomed to failure. We have to wake up and love our women and our children. Parents have to guide their children. This film documents parents not wanting to fulfil their responsibilities. You will be shocked by how profound the producers of this discoverd the truth. They should have gotten an Oscar for best picture.
