  • Just like brittanybell said, WHERE THE HELL ARE HER PARENTS?! Are they just going to sit back and let their daughter keep behaving this way? She's showing an appalling lack of responsibility, and running the risk of teaching her poor kids to ask in the same manner. My mother would have taken a stick to me!

  • I think someone dropped the ball. In Oregon, when there is a teen pregnancy, the girl is REQUIRED to get a depo shot when the baby is born, and then the county peeps in to make sure all is going well, and they encourage the girl to keep up with the shots. I think the parenting classes are mandatory as well, and they can be a good reality check for a young girl with stars in her eyes wanting to make babies. Then again, the most irresponsible mom I know making wayyyyy too many babies is in her 30's and pregnant with her 5th, the 8th for the dad, and they are homeless without 2 nickels to rub together. But they were TRYING. Some will never stop. :(

  • I agree and disagree, but i aslo frew up fast, long story. Im a young mother of ONE! I was pregnant at 17 but with my bf at that time since i was 14. My mother was dyin of cancer and i new i needed her to see my baby and have a grandchild before she left us, I got a gold medal for it. My daughter was born in november my mom passed away in august. my daughter was 9.5 mths old. Ive taken very good care of her by myself, with little to no help with both my parents being passed away and her father leaving me with no support, when my mom died. I worked 3 jobs and went to school, i havent finished school yet, 4 yrs later but my daughter still has everything she needs and then some. 1 kid at 17 in this economy now is good enough where theres a will theres a way. But 3 sooo close in age at 17 i couldnt have handled it. Good luck to her but she should stop and smell the roses.
