Admit you were not the best parent! If your kid is rude, pregnant at 15, doing drugs, whatever. Everyone here says "it was not my fault." Then, whose fault is it?

my ten year old is being very rude and lazy right now. Guess what? I blame myself!

yet, everyone is here claims to be such a great mom! Trust me, if you got pregnant as a teenager , you are not a great mom.

edit to add some thoughts.

i have read all the replies and learned a lot. I should not have said all teen moms are bad parents. I apologize to those I offended. I still do not think teen pregnancy is a great plan or path in life. But, I am sure there are many success stories. Just like some kids can come from a great family and still fail. It happens.

thank you to all who replied, it has been very informative and has given me a lot to think about.

i still think parents need to accept more responsibility for their chop idlers behavier.

WOW....painting with that broad brush again?

I do know some teenagers that got pregnant and were great moms (not all - but some)

Before you say I was a pregnant teen - nope - I didn't have sex until my 20s and had my first child at age 30.  I AM a great mom, however, I am not perfect!!!!

I got pregnant when I was 18 the summer before moving away to college. The condom broke and my mom took me to get an abortion. She is an amazing woman.

Yes, there are exceptions. I am sure some teen moms do a good job. But, I have yet to meet a mother who announces "I am a great mom" that I have a really agreed with.

we usually define great differently. I am sure you are great, by your standards.

Lots of generalizations there I think you would be better off without.

No one is a perfect parent, there is no such thing.  We all know there are great kids that come from awful parents and awful kids that come from great parents.  Sometimes, it really is just the kids because they are born little individuals with their own desires and demons.  Parents may help shape, increase or decrease the odds of certain things through their actions, but its ultimately the child's decision to go down a road we know they would be better off not going down.

I got pregnant as a teen. I am a good mother. I love my kids they are safe, healthy, clean and loved. They have all their needs met and most or their wants. It's very broad to label one demographic of people to be a stereotype.

Yes, there are exceptions. But the majority of the time, bad kids come from crap parents

Are you that great that you think anyone cares if you agree they are a great mom?

You sound like you think youre better then everyone , you're not.

Why does it have to be anyone's fault? Some things just are.
We don't need need to place blame in every situation.
