Life is way too short to spend time ashamed-it's almost 2012 not 1935 where a young woman was considered a whore even if she was raped and either sent away to give up her baby whether she wanted to or not or made to lie and say her husband died or something-it's not something to proud of, but it doesnt have to be the end of the world-it is however the end of your carefree teenage years. You can still make a life and future for yourself and your child but it will be much harder than if you didnt get pregnant. Harder doesnt mean impossible if a young woman is really determined to give her child a good life
Quoting Anonymous:The sheer number of teen moms replying proves my point. Teen pregnancy has now become some misguided badge of honor in society. Sad and pathetic
Well what do you think the answer is? Go back to the days when girls were sent away in shame while the boys that got them that way got off scott free. Get over it that isnt gonna happen. My personal belief is they should wait til they're married but since people generally dont married til they're in their 30's it isnt likely. Girls in this situation have a hard enough hill to climb why kick them all the way up?
Quoting Anonymous:Okay that's bs I'm a teen mom and I'm married and happy with my son and his dad so stfu
Quoting Kaidensmom2011:That ur judging all teen moms unfairly yeah I'd say it does
i had my son at 18, im not proud that my birth control failed, but im proud that i was able to have such a healthy happy baby, if thats such a bad thing then so be it
Quoting Kaidensmom2011:I had my son in September I'm 19 years old and not all teen moms think it's glorified I know better but you make it seem like teens are getting pregnant on purpose and it's bulls*** because for most of us I think didn't plan on becoming parent but at least we stepped up and took responibility for it
