i find it hard to believe that young girls are getting judge for being pregnant at a younge age. if your 17 and older it should not matter. i was 17 when i got pregnant and i got judged a lot. i stood in high school and graduated high school with a daughter. it was hard but i did it. now I'm taking online college classes just so i can finish my schooling and give my daughter the life that she deserves. to me i feel like it should not matter as long as you don't give up.

You are the exception, not the rule. Teenage motherhood is a social issue. The majority are poor, uneducated, and produce the same in their children. Children of teen moms have a much higher rate of learning disabilities and behavioral problems. Boys of teen moms have a much higher than average chance of ending up in prison, and girls are at high risk of becoming teen mothers themselves and perpetuating the cycle. So yes, you can make it work. But most don't. I'm 19, will be 19 when its born, I'll make it work because I don't have another choice and I'm almost there. But again, the exception, not the rule. Teen pregnancy and motherhood is very much a huge social issue.

I know lots of teen moms that are doing great and others not so great but I agree with the previous comment.

Agree with the pp. you may have graduated high school and your in college now, both of which are great. But if you hadnt had family support could you still have done it? Are you able to financially support your child without help from family or govt?

We get judged because it's not normal, and it really shouldn't be. Even though we have made poor decisions we can move forward.
