I have heard many say that its wrong to give a teen mom a shower because they shouldn't be rewarded. But a shower is not a reward, it is not celebrating that the mom got pregnant, it is welcoming the first baby itself and the baby is no less deserving because of the circumstances of their mother. Giving them a rough start is not going to teach them a lesson, its just punishing the baby. Teen parents often have financial issues and need that help more than anyone. I had my first son at fifteen. My parents and some relatives threw me a baby shower and it meant the world to me. I did not have financial issues, but I needed to know that they supported me and that they were still behind me. They gave me the confidence that I could be a good parent and they turned me into the successful parent that I am today. People say that teen parents need to do things just the same as any other parent, but without things that most parents have.
