What do you think about Teen Moms?

I have a few Teen moms that are having trouble with people looking down on them for being a parent already. They are around 16-17 years old and have all of these adults judging them. Most of them are better parents than some adults that I know and it pisses me off that parenting somehow has a set age group now. Sure, some teens don't deserve to be parents but what about the ones that actually care about their kids?

  • I think why do they always want recognition? Do you seen adult moms going around and saying...I'm an adult mom and I raise my child...why can't you give me a cookie.

  • I agree with you there anon.. My mother was an controling religous freak that never let me do a thing... and when I tryed talking to her about sex all she said was, " IF YOU HAVE SEX BEFORE YOUR MARRIED ITS A SIN." Then would not say anything more after that... Yeah, like that helped... but it all worked out in the end! I am still married to the father and with have 3 kids and one on the way! Couldn't be happier about how my life turned out!

    I think that teen mothers do not have good mothers.

  • they look down on you because they think you have already shown thats you are not responbile the best you can do is prove them wrong and be a good parent to your kid/kids and screw what everyone else thinks about you it's not about you any more its about your kid so get over it

  • I don't look down on them at all. As long as they can take care of their baby or have help god bless them.
