Im a 17 year old mom with a 2 month old daughter...im always getting judged for being a teen parent and since then, have lost most of my friends and even some family members...i dont think that its right for teen parents to be judged and put out to be "bad kids". As long as they are good parents and take responsibility for their child/children...then thats all that should matter...but what i really wanna know is...whats your opinion on 'Teen Parenthood'? And how do you feel about it?Answer Question

Most teen parenthood is not planned, so there cannot be any amount of readiness for the event or what is to come, but that is not to say that a lot of them don't step up to the plate and learn really fast what is expected. I think once a woman of any age has children, intuition and instinct kick in really quick, although I have seen some mature ladies not have any of those I mentioned, but for the most part they do.
Just recently saw in the news a story about a high school girl who gave birth in a public bathroom and left the baby there to die, it bresks my heart when I see this, this goes beyond years, it borders down on matters of compassion.
Ultimately, I think teens mom can be just as good as any other mom, heck all they need to have is love and priorities in the right place, I am sure you are one of those, good luck with your baby!

Honestly we live in a very judgemental society, and no matter what we do there will always be someone out there pointing the finger saying what is right and what is wrong I was a teen parent and I love my children and I pat myself on the back everyday because I am a damn good mother and those who choose to judge can kiss my A** ignore the negativity continue being a wonderful mother to your child
