    This is an unfortunate situation. Here is my advice, I'm not sure if it will work with their parents. First, when discribing the situation to parents I would say that I consider school to be the student's "job" during youth. It is our jobs as teachers to guide and train behaviors that will be acceptable later in the working force or college. Sexual comments should be avoided since it could offend others and possiblly lead to legal action in this day in age.
    Before I would give this speach, I would make sure that I heard the comments myself and document them by writing down their exact words.
    It's a shame you weren't backed by your principal. I would go again if it continues and just make the point that such comments are considered possible sexual harassment and could lead to bigger issues at the school if not dealt with early.
