The article is about how teen motherhood is declining, and how that is a good thing because teens don't understand child development, are often neglectful parents, and that children of teen parents are destined to live in poverty, just like their parents.
As if we don't have enough trouble dealing with the stigma of being a young parent, someone had to go and print this stupid sh*t. It's just frustrating because I feel like I am just as good a parent as anyone else, regardless of how old I am. (I'm 20, by the way.) I've seen what you guys write about your kids. I KNOW that you are proud of them, that they are your world. I'm the same way about my son, Lennon. It just makes me mad that, in this group, there are so many PROUD TEEN MOMMIES who love their kid(s), but do we get any mention? No, just the parents who neglect their kids; the parents who give GOOD teen parents like us a bad name.
I guess that's just my opinion. Thanks for letting me bit*h for a minute!
