I'm a very young soon-to-be mommy. I'm 18. I'm in high school, going into my senior year. I know I made a mistake but I will love my little girl and provide the best for her always. I have stepped up a lot and I'm assuming full responsibility for her. I work 40 hours a weeks as a supervisor at a restaurant and I CAN apply for insurance there and that's what I planned to do. I planned to work my butt off and get insurance for my baby through the company with money drawn from my checks each week. My parents don't want me to do that. They think I should get a medical card. They say it will be way to hard to keep working 40 hours a week, go to school and take care of a baby. They keep telling me that it's okay to get a medical card for my daughter. (I'm on my parents insurance) I just feel bad. I never thought I'd have to do something like that. What should I do? Is it so bad?
