  • No , I don't think it is fair. My mom and I don't get along but I give her credit for being a single teen mom in 1968.

  • Another teen mother question? I swear every question is about Obama or Michael Phelps or marijuana or the lady with the 8 kids.

    No, I don't look down on teen moms if they take proper care of their children.

  • I don't think people look down on teen moms, i think people look down on the situation. Teen pregnancy may be more common these days, but it's still not an ideal situation that society likes to see. Everyone wants to see a teenager be a teenager, have fun, enjoy their young life, grow up and then have children.

  • i dont know why people say teen moms like age has anything to do with it, it doesnt matter if you have a baby at 19 or 29 if its your first you are going to have to figure things out, being a mother doesnt come with age it comes with practice, patience and tolerance.

  • No, I definitely don't look down on them. I just wish they could of waited to have a baby. But I know it happens. I saw a lot of girls pregnant when I was in highschool and now I'm 39, Had my first at 28. It's a lot to have a child and I think it would be harder when you're a teen financially and emotionally. God Bless all you young mommies who do it all.

  • No, it's just the same question over and over. Maybe if you would read back past the first page you would find them.

  • FIrst of all you are generalizing. You say alot of people look down on teen moms and you also say that teen moms do more than their best to take care of the child..... Your statements are too generalized. Not all people look down on teen moms and not all teen moms do their best to take care of their child either. I don't look down on teen moms as long as they didn't plan to get pregnant and when i say teen moms I mean under 18. I don't think there is ever a good reason to get pregnant on purpose if you are under 18.
