Teenage Pregnancy

How do yall feel about teenage pregnancy and what actions do you think can be taken to help prevent it from happening to such young children?
I thought of this earlier when I seen an 11 year old girl in the store 6 months pregnant. Crazy!!

  • EDUCATION.

    If we want to stop disease and unwanted pregnancy we would start with education. It is absolutely irresponsible to expect parent's to give these kids reliable and REAL information.

  • I agree with gypsyjewels. Education is the most important thing.... Just telling them "don't do it" DOESN'T work.

  • I don't think an 11 year old girl should be pregnant. However, if you are talking about a teenage pregnancy then I think the parents of the pregnant girl should show support toward their pregnant daughter once she becomes pregnant. I think it's extremely difficult to be a teenager and pregnant since there is a great deal to think about when preparing to bring a baby into the world.Additionally, I think parents should also openly discuss with their teenagers the value of safe sex and how unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy, and other transmitted diseases.
