Its a mixed emotion when I see teen moms. My cousin was a mom at 17 and she is great at it! But, its hard not to judge a teen mom...NOT for her being a mom or even how she got that way...but b/c I see so many of them not being a responsible parent. Leaving the baby with their parents so they can party all the time or letting thier kids behave badly tends to further the teen mom sterotype...But then again, can I really blame teens for acting like teens? And how do I know why they had/kept the baby? Maybe it wasn't their decision, it was thier parents. And then shouldn't I be looking to the parents of that teen mom to continue to raise her and then instruct her on how to raise the baby (but still letting her raise her own child)? It can be a tricky situation. But, in general, as long as you are doing your best to be a good mom, then thats all I care about.
