|Children are included during Carnival|
Spain has one of Europe´s lowest age of sexual consent and until 1995 it was just 12 - that´ll shock most parents I bet. At that age they are still children and far to immature to make decisions that could potentially ruin the rest of their lives. However, surprising there is not an epidemic of teenage pregnancies like in the UK. Why..... in my opinion one of two explanations.

Im not saying that you don´t get groups of youths loitering on street corners, of course you do, but not like anything on the scale back home. Plus there is no drinking culture among the Spanish youth - I rarely see rowdy drunk teenagers and if you do, you can bet that in the vast majority of the cases they are Brits or other nationalities.
