  • Don't worry hun, you'll be ok. Give yourself a break. When you're overwelmed just put the kids to sleep and have some quite time. Start doing something fun like going out every other Saturday. You're not just a mom, you're a 19-yr-old girls too and you have to live your life.

  • Your boyfriend "got you pregnant"? You had nothing to do with that huh? You decided to be a mother, this is part of it. We get overwhelmed, overworked, we are underappreciated, under-acknowledged.... No matter if you're a single or married mother, 19 or 35, it's hard. You don't get to go out much. Get your joy from your children and from being a good mother and provider. Raise smart successful children and your job will be done. Don't rely on your obviously unreliable boyfriend to be there or provide anything. And don't have anymore kids you have enough to worry about right now. Birth control is worth the investment.
