  • OMG rude people i tell you. Wow i dont think your a bad mother i had my son at the age of 17 i worked hard to finish High school and still worked a pt job to support my little guy till i was out of school then i took CNA classes to support him better. he is now a happy healthy 7 year old boy. I did what i had to do and im sure you are doing the same thing dont let people put you down just because you had your child young it doesnt mean your going to be a bad mom. If you are taking care of your little bundle of joy and they are happy and healthy then thats what counts. Keep up the good work and dont let people drag you down.

  • Not all people do, and if you know that you're being the best mom you could possibly be to your child then just ignore those people that have a go at you.
    I'm sure you didn't plan this and I'm sure your baby has a perfectly good mother.

  • How old were you when you started having sex? I'm sure without much education you don't make enough money to support that baby, unless you're getting welfare or something. It's not a matter of what kind of parent you are it's just about you being irresponsible to end of pregnant at such a young age. I just don't see how a 16 year old could be a good parent when their just a child themselves.

  • I do not think you are a bad mom..I do not even know you.
    I do think that you are too young to have a child...

  • it not any of our buisness when she started having sex. and she never said she wasnt in school, and so what if she isnt. tht doesnt make her stupid. my grandmother got pregnant and married at 16 and left school and she has a perfectly good job w/o her high school diploma. and so what if shes on welfare or wic, its nothing to be ashmed of.

  • I agree with Danee, you're way to young to have a child, which makes it hard to believe that a 16 year old can be a good mother. I hope you don't get yourself pregnant again until you are married. It seems like some of these teen girls just keep popping them out, just work on your education so you can give this baby a good life, that will show if you a good parent or not.
