Im talking about the 16-19 year old moms. Its so frustrating to be bashed at all, but better yet about being a mom, doing what we were put on earth to do. No one is to determine when the right time to add your baby to the world is. I hate this! And I will defend and stand up for all the young moms until im old,cold and full of mold!

its not just teen moms its every mom gets bashed for doing on thing or another. examples are spanking, non spanking, homeschooling, public school, day cares, working moms and SAHMs. and even if your not a mom you can get bashed. chosing to not have kids, gun fanatics, those against guns, prostituesd, escorts, cops, medicas, military. there will always be someone who doesnt like what you do or how you do or think that they do it better.

I was 21 with my first, but I agree. Some girls make mistakes and get pregnant too young, sure, but it doesn't mean they'll be horrible mothers. My best friend was pregnant and had a baby in our senior year. She finished school, went to nursing school, and is one of the best moms I've ever known.

i don't see a reason to bash any mother who does her job, but i think teen moms in particular are ridiculed because they are children bringing children into the world. it's an unsettling thing to see for some people and i think they just don't know any better way to handle it besides talking shit.

 I am 20 bu found out I was pregnant at 19.  I think people dont believe at that age girls are old enough to know what we want and they dont believe we can take care of another human being let alone ourselves.

Yes, but young moms are talked about all around the world, even have their own TV show. Thats ridiculous how we are ridiculed when there are much worse things going on in this world.

All moms get crap for something.  Really no matter what we do, we can't win. You know, "stay at home mom's isolate their kids, but working moms don't spend time with their kids." That kind of thing. I've never been personally or directly bashed.

Its because some young moms are shitty moms. People see shitty young moms and assume we are all like that.
