Young, but not immature?

I've only seen a handful of posts from younger moms on here that seem to have a grasp of the "real world". I'm 21, and 41 weeks pregnant and today was finally my last day at work. Why? Because my boyfriend and I pay bills, and baby Carter needs somewhere to live! We don't depend on our parents for anything, but they consistently offer.

I just want to see if there are other young mommies who feel the way I do. I get sick of seeing girls whine on here that their boyfriends treat them badly or their parents aren't being fair. Grow up, and be an example for your baby!

i agree. I'm 22 with 3 munchkins and me and DF work our butts off to provide for them. Having been a teenage mom I understand how hard it is, but at the same time it's just as hard for older mothers as well. I just want to smack some people and tell them to gtfu.

I know exactly what you mean. I am 25, with 4 kids, married, and I work full time, but I had my son at 13. Some of these girls on here just leave me speechless. They have no idea what being a mother really is, they still have on their rose colored glasses, they are immature and childish, and I pity their children. There are a few who are mature, and even a few who are 16 or 17 and mature. But most aren't. Especially those who complain about living with their parents or brothers and sisters. If you don't want to raise a kid around them, perhaps you should have thought about that before you had sex or decided to raise a child. Grow up and be grateful that your parents are supporting you and your baby.

I'm 18 and yeah I feel the same way I don't like to depend on no one for nothing, I like doing things by myself and for myself just as simple as that. I'm going to continue to bust my ass for my family !

I agree. I worked until 37 weeks when I was put on bed rest. I'm attending college full time now. I never complain about what I don't have, because I'm grateful for the things I do have. I find the "rose colored glasses" comment funny because my frames are rose colored. :p

Well im 17 ive been a LOT of stupid mistakes. I dropped out of school at 16 b/c i thought i was an adult, boy was i wrong! But im going to get my G.E.D. and get a job and go to college. I hate living with my mom and depending on my mom and my dds father for everything. It makes me feel like a pos but im trying my hardest to better mine and my dds life. I just wish some moms would stop bitching and better thier lifes. Its not easy but its f*cking worth it for their kids!

Yes it pisses me off I'm 20 and this will be my second come August and I hold it all down on my own no section 8 no welfare nothing but medical. I feel as though my kids will be out on their butt if I waited for help with anything but what upsets me mostly is the lack of critical thinking and common sense I see in a lot of moms not just the Young.
