Many of us have been there, Many of us feel it IS a big deal. We gave up so much of our youth for our children, we had to grow up beyond what most of us were ready for. We didn't get to be normal teenagers and go out and party, we had to stay home and take care of baby. So why would you think it isn't a big deal to be a teen mom???Answer Question

It is, but not because you didn't get to PARTY.
More because a baby needs alot of things that most teen moms can't provide on their own, It inherently puts the baby at a disadvantage and the teen as well.
The teen CHOSE to get pregnant, CHOSE to have UNPROTECTED SEX (and luckily had a baby and not a death sentance HIV!)...so while I feel for her my heart goes put to the baby

I don't think it's such a big deal like I stated in the other question. Being a teen mom is hard but being a mom at any age is hard. I didn't go through the "oh, I missed out on partying, and friends and drinking" stage. I never had time to do any of that stuff even before I had a baby. On the other hand, my sil had her first baby last year and she's 33. She has struggled big time with her new responsibilities as a mom. Unlike teen moms, she got to travel all over the world, be an upper class socialite, climb the corporate ladder and do anything she wanted. Shortly after she had her son, she realized that her life as she knew it would never be the same. She still struggles because since becoming a mom she was demoted at a job she's worked her entire life to get. Her son spends more time in daycare than at home and all her "childless friends" have left her behind.
