  • No!!! Why??
    I commend you for doing all of that. I am 19 and am a mother of 3 i had my first at 17 I dont work but My SO does and I dont live with my Parents we live on our own and I take care of my kids all day every day. People think just because we are young that we dont know what we are doing. It makes me so mad.

  • Absolutley not. You are a mom, and IMO, overcoming all of the trials that teen moms face, you are a very strong woman to have created such a wonderful life for your son.

  • No you shouldn't be treated any differently. You love your son and take care of him and yourself.

    It will be harder for you because you're so young, but don't let other people make you feel bad.

  • You are a mommy no matter what age you are. Four of my sisters had children at the ages of 15 to 17 and all of them are adults now and have always been great mommies.

    In fact, you have it harder than adult mommies because you are not of any legal age and you have so much going against you. Yet, you are strong and you don't let your age and society get the best of you. You just keep going and try to be the best mommy you can be.

  • if you love your child more than you love yourself, then you are no less than any mother among us. age doesn't make or break you, it only challenges, as does every aspect of parenting. love your child with your whole heart. you need not impress anyone but him.

  • You sound like a great SIL has 4 kids (started at 15) and she is not very responsible...Her b/f is a jerk, she lives with her mom, doesn't work, also she doesn't buckle her kids in the carseats...One time as I was buckling my 3 year old in I asked if she needs me to put her 3 year old and buckle her in but she said she can buckle her self, well the whole way to our destination she was yelling at her 3 year old to sit down because she wasn't buckled...she tried to put her 6 month old in a regular seat buckled with her 4 year old because there was no room for his carseat...but my DH wouldn't let her..he said he would bring the car back for her after dropping everyone off. Anyways, as long as you realize how important your kids are and you take responsibility, then you shouldn't be treated any different, and you sound like a great mom.

  • It sounds like you're doing a great job with your son. Keep on disproving stupid stereotypes that age has a lot to do with being a capable mom.
