What do you think about teen pregnancy?

Lately there has been alot of hype about teen pregnancy. What are your thoughts and feelings about it. I was watching on the news that some teens from 14 to 16 want babies because they are bored with their lives and/or want to stay in a relationship. Kids are growing up too fast!!

  • Any 14 to 16 year old that wants a baby because they are bored just shows how so immature they are. They have no idea how hard it really is.

  • I feel sorry for the babies. They have no say in what happens. I was born to a 15 year old mom it was not easy waiting for her to grow up. She thought she was mature and had it all together she could not have been more wrong. People criticize older moms but I would rather see a pregnant 50 year old than a pregnant 17 year old.

  • Unfortunelatey teen pregnancy has been around for a long time. Personally I wish, teens didnt have sex. Thats just my "old fashioned" coming out, I didnt have sex as a teen.

    I completely agree. Usually children get in trouble because they are bored, even parents of toddlers know this.

  • It is my worst nightmare, so I try to deal with it as best I can we talk about it a ridiculous amount of time, and we start early. Right now, my discussion is not centered on sex is bad, but that sex is something that SHOULD NOT be had in high school.
