i'm 21. my son was born when I was 20.  how exactly does that make me a teen mother? sure being a young mom has its own hardships, but i was not in highschool, I was 20 when I had my son, so not a teen.... it just irks me.

not meaning to offend actual teen moms.

Did you get pregnant when you were a teen?

Do you act like a teen or adult?

Maybe because you were pregnant as a teen? People can be dumb.

You arent a teen mom... that would irritate me too. 20 is a hell of a lot different than 16.

i had my son when i was 19 but it was 6 days before i turned 20.

i find that people call me a teen mom when its convenient and they want to stereotype me. but once they find out i'm in college and married i was just a "young mother."

its stupid.
