So I read an article in the stir, on this website, basically insisting that being a responsible teen mom means using birth control.
Idk why but even though it's responsible to use it, if you are married, had your first kid as a teen, and get pregnant again, who's business is it if you use birth control or not. Sure the majority of young moms rely heavily on others for support, but what about those of us who actually have it together, pay rent, pay for car, car insurance, dental , health insurance, college, etc... why are those expectations pushed on us?
We'll take me for example: I had my son at 18, I had already been done with HS at 16, am now 19 going into my JUnior yr of college as a statistics major, and yes real University college, we pay for all of our own bills including health, dental and vision. My SO and I both work part time so we can be home with our son as much as possible. We do play groups, i still breastfeed, we buy him only organic, basically we do everything we possibly can for our son.
Yet I don't feel the need to be on birth control. We are getting married this summer, and are planning to wait for our son to be near the age of 3 before we actually TRY to have another. So now I get the irresponsible title?
Another one is...what's with people harping on teen moms not going to college, lol I go by choice, but trust me it's hard, if you go to college after having a kid, you had to really want to go before.
