Teens should not be mothers ... Ever

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Teenagers brains are not done growing. The frontal lobes which keep adults from acting on impulse are not done growing. They can't accurately correlate actions with consequences in high stress situations. It's like keeping a stick of dynamite near your fireplace. A spark may light it and cause everything to explode or you could go years with the it sitting there without incident. Who takes those kind of chances? It's stupid to have young teens raise babies

Adults should raise children into adults.

Why would someone be proud to be a teen mom?

It's so easy to piss y'all off

What would you consider a high stress situation, and what do you think would happen that makes you think teens shouldn't be mothers?  I'm just curious as to your reasoning.

Quoting Anonymous:

Did I say teenagers did not have common sense?

In fact teens can rationalize as well as adults in calm situations. In high stress situations teens cannot adequately rationalize. Their brain is not developed enough to do so.

Had my son at 18 and he is perfectly fine almost 3 yo. Not all teens are immature some actually have common sense. My son has always come first in everything I did.

Technically a person's brain does not stop developing and growing until they are 25. So are you saying that those under 25 shouldn't have children? And by the way, maturity is optional. Not all teens are immature irresponsible brats. I know some girls who became teen moms, and they are the best mothers I have ever seen. Your statement is judgemental. And it doens't make sense.
