Anyone want to share their story of being a teen mother?

Hello everyone, I am 17 and a Senior in High School. I am doing a research paper on teen parenting and their lives. I would like to have real stories and real lives incrporated in my paper. It makes up half of my semester grade. I would really appreciate the help! If you do want to share but want me to keep your name anonymous I will be happy to do so :). Thank you for listening!

  • First, I think it's great that you're writing a paper on this, & I hope that you will be showing all the aspects. I had my daughter when I was 16, but they don't give enough space here for a good response, so please send me a message with a few questions & I'll be happy to back-&-forth with you until you feel you have a good idea of my situation. Thanks!

  • i got pregnant at 19 and i was considered a teen mom even though i was married, Just cuz ur a teen doesn't mean ur going to be a bad mother i have seen plenty of girl turn their life completely around after having a child so young, but i don't understand what the big freaking deal is with girl getting pregnant at 16 or 17 when many year ago girls were getting married at 16 and having kids. This was way b4 my time, i don't know much about it but i have heard stories from ppl who were married at that age and had kids so why now 50 60 year later it's a problem? I really don't get it. Yeah there is school and all that. But IDK that's just me.
