how can a teen take care of a baby. you dont have a job (at least a steady decently paying one), your not mature enough yet, youre arent supposed to because you are underage and usually they either get rid of the baby or the boyfriend leaves after he finds out about it
Our bodies aren't ready for it as teenagers, and it the birth can harm us because our bodies are simply not to the point of being able to give birth yet. Plus, it's just plain gross. Why would you want to bring a child into the world when you're still practically one yourself? It's just plain stupid and a good way to ruin your future.
because the younger you are the more at risk your child is of having cancer or a disease that can be life threatening when their born. Also your body has not fully grown yet so it will be harder for your body to take care of the baby when it's inside you.
Teenagers have a double dilemma about childbirth. On the one hand, their bodies are Physically ready for having a child. But on the other they are NOT (sorry, not to offend you but....) emotionally mature enough to know how to responsiblycare for a child. By maturity I mean having enough experience to make rationale decisions, to be able to earn enough money to buy what is required, Can't afford healthcare (sorry, government supplied child care is rock bottom, cheap as you can get, with usually cost cutting doctors offices) And above all, Teenagers have a flawed decision making process (as evidenced by getting pregnant (repeatedly) at such a young age for such silly 'reasons'. Not to say a couple of years of growing up wouldn't help, but then the teenager wouldn't be a teenager!
Certainly not all adults are able to make rationale decisions either. BUT, the difference is an adult is usually NOT living at home, with mommy and daddy paying the bills!
A teenage body is not really mature enough to nurture a baby. Just because a female can get pregnant does not mean her body is fully ready to carry a child. It can, but the health risks are greater to both the mother and baby.
There is also the mental maturity. A teenage girl is not mature enough, not responsible enough, to raise a child. They may think so, but again and again it is proven they are not. Being raised by a grandmother-mother is not the ideal situation for either party but it happens so often because the teen mom wants her freedom.
Very general statements...but also very factual. I know I will see a lot of teens that do not agree with me, that's OK. I have enough years under my belt as a mom, grandmother and great grandmother to know.
You're still growing, and when your body is at the same time trying to grow another inside you, you're both basically competing for nutrients to grow. Can stunt your growth. Also, even if you're 16 or something, there are possible health issues later in life, including pains. After having a baby as a teen, you will find it hard to have time for yourself, let alone juggle jobs trying to pay the cost of healthcare for you and the baby, including the process of the birth, itself.
Besides the physical aspects, which are numerous and been said, there is the mental aspect. My mother got pregnant with me when she was 13 and had me when she was 14. At some point she completely shut down and has been medically diagnosed as frigid, which sounds kind of funny but it's not. She's not mentally stable in any capacity. She can't be touched or touch someone herself. At all. Also, she has ALWAYS been resentful to me. I know that's why she's done some of the things she's done in the past, and some of it was truly subconsciously done...but she has ALWAYS resented me. True story, she and I have had conversations about it. That's why teenagers shouldn't have babies, because they're still young and selfish (as it should be) and a baby takes away youth and you never get to put yourself and your needs and wants first ever again.
It's unhealthy because giving birth puts a big strain on the teen which is bad since their body is still developing and same goes for teens having sex and also raising the baby they suffer finically and cause stress poor educations this isn't always the case my friend has a baby and she's 15 she had it around October and she's fine and healthy and she supports her baby very well some teens take better care of their baby than a adult does to their child but most cases the teen suffers either in health or education and money
First off most teens aren't mentally equipped to take care of a child and also their bodies aren't fully developed yet, therefore they are more prone to hemorrhaging and complications while giving birth or after. Babies with teen mothers are also higher risk to have diseases and disabilities.
