Was your mom (or dad, or both) a teenage mother?
Did you follow in her footsteps?
Did she talk to you about safe sex?

My mom had my sister at 19. I did not follow in her footsteps, nor did my siblings. I was 21 when I has my first child, and my sister was 24 when she first had hers.



She never explicitly talked to me about safe sex, but warned me about how hard being a teenaged mom is and I knew safe sex prevented pregnancy so I sure as hell wasn't about to go through what she did.

No my parents were in their 20s and married.



I had my first at 18. Pregnant at 17.



I dont think I ever even heard the word sex from my parents much less had any kind of conversation about it lol.

Nope. My mother was 30 when she had me. However, her mother was 15 when she had her first. But that was a different time and place, she was already married. Times have changed. I guess. Sort of.

No my mom wasn't a teen mom. She also didn't talk to me about sex. I had my boys at 17, 19, and 21.

My mom had me when she was 24 I think.. about the same age I had my first child.  My mom never talked to me about safe sex.  I wish she would have and I wish we would have had a better relationship with open communication.  Oddly, my mom got pregnant at 19 and that ended in mc and so did I at the very same age and mine ended in mc too.

Yeah, she was 14 when she her first and 20 when she had me. I was 15 when I had my dd, who is 7 now and just had my son 4 weeks ago, 5 days before I turned 23. And no she never spoke about sex with me until she already found out I was doing it and even then it was a mild conversation.

No
No
No, just put me on BC and sent me on my way

Lol I was a 'teenage' parent...I hate being 'classified' like that, I was a parent, just like a 30 year old.

My mom was 16 when she had my sister. Neither of us were teen moms. My sister was 27 when she had her first baby, and I am pregnant at 22.
