I was just found out yet another girl I know who's mother is now taking care of her child because she doesn't want to grow up. She's in her 20s and her kid is almost a year old. She is about the same age as me when I had my first. She doesn't want to quit smoking weed, drinking, etc to raise her own kid. Good grief. If you want to do that get a sitter! Don't lose your kid over it! I keep seeing this more and more. I just don't understand. I know people go thru hard times, especially when they are young and got pregnant unexpectedly, I understand relying some on your family. But what I don't understand is just letting, or wanting, someone else to take care of your kid simply because you don't want to stop partying long enough to be a mother. There really is no point to this, but maybe someone on here can explain.
