i think its sad that its becoming a trend but there are some teen moms that really rise to the occasion and take care of thier responsibilities, that said, im glad i was smart enough to responsibly take birth control and not become a teen mom!
Not for me to judge. With that said, I have to admire a teen who keeps her baby It will be hard at first, but with family support and shared love, one will be happy one decided to keep her child. Some schools allow teen moms to graduate. When the time comes , it will be rewarding to be a young grandmother:)
Ok... Let me tell you something... Regardless if two people use condoms and birth control, they can still get pregnant... The only way to not become pregnant is to NOT have SEX. Even if the girl is on BC and even if the guy wears a condom.... There's still a chance the girl can get pregnant! I get so mad thinking that people think using "protection" will keep them "safe" bc it won't! That's all I have to say....
Nothing. Everyone makes mistakes... They are just the ones who own up to it and take care of their responsibilities. We all have close friends or family that are going thru this... Let's give support not make them feel bad about it.
I think it is sad. It is sad because they miss out on so much of the incredible experiences they could enjoy through out growing up. It's sad because they lose that time in their lives when it is ok to be selfish and focus on themselves. It is sad because they are unlikely to finish school. I think it is sad because their child has to be raised by a child. It is sad because most of these kids will have parents who end up hating each other because they are not capable of overcoming the adversity brought on by parenting at any age. It is sad because the children of teen parents are likely to become teen parents themselves. It is just sad all around. However, that being said, if these teens buckle down they can become great parents. They have to put their selfishness and differences aside and focus on the main goal: raising happy, healthy, productive kids to become adults ready to take on the world with every chance at success. It can be done, but it isn't usually what the outcome is. I have hope for the youth who get themselves into these positions, that they can get an education, jobs and be good parents who raise good children. They just have a lot harder path to go down.
I think it is very stupid. It is very inappropriate too. Teenagers still have a life too fill for themselves, and instead their life is left empty because they are "raising" a child. I think 16 & Pregnant sets a bad example for teens as well. They think that they can get on a tv show for being stupid because they are pregnant and a teen. Well, when we see them in public, we think "What was she thinking," i dont understand why our teens today are like this. its embarrasing for their families too.
Hard life. You miss out on the most fun time in life. Grow up fast,learn to be responsible quickly. I'm sure the majority would agree they love the baby but it's not the best road to travel. I give them credit for keeping the baby.
I was a teen mom with 2 kids...my son at 17,my daughter at 18 and my other daughter when i was 22 my kids have turned out just fine and so have I..life might be hard with 3 kids at such a young age but they have the best life possible..I am working on my diploma an going to college to hopefully be a teacher 1 day..now if a girl was 14 or 15 an had a baby then their parents didnt do something right
I was 16 when my daughter was born, and I have absolutely loved every second of it. She is the sunshine of everyday for me and my reason for living a happy and fulfilling life. I was going down a bad road until I got pregnant and her being born saved me. Its not a sad thing unless the teenage parent has ulterior motives for having the baby to begin with. There are plenty of grown adults who have no room raising children so who's to say that just because a parent is young that they will automatically do a bad job or be miserable with the life of parenthood? My parents didn't screw up raising me. I was loved and taken very good care of just like my daughter is. I am working full time, have my own house, car, and go to college without help from my parents or the government. Teenage parents aren't always bad, just like middle aged parents aren't always good.
