  • I think it's sad, and i always wonder WHY these girls felt the need to have sex and be mothers so young.
    We just moved to TX and my daughter said there are at least 6 girls at the school who are pregnant and she knows 2 of them already have one kid

  • Actually, teen pregnancy rates are going down. But I was 24 when I had my son, turned 25 about 6 weeks later.

  • I was 18 when I had my first child and placed him for adoption. I had my second at 20 and took care of him on my own. It was difficult but it was the best descion I have ever made. I wish I had the strength and knowledge of how to raise my first child on my own.

    I am sad when I see young mothers, girls pregnant. I know the rates are declining which I think is awesome, in my class alone I know there were at 3 of us (that was a class of 40). I often wonder what issues they have that they are trying to resolve with sex (I know now what mine were and I wish someone had been there for me to teach me I was worthy of more, that I was lovable without having to give up my body to a boy to feel loved and wanted and needed, and that I didn't have to define myself by having a man in my life. Unfortuantely my parents didn't give me that, and its not something you learn on your own.)

    I think it is sad. I know most are unplanned and it can really disrupt your life at such a young age.
