Would you let your son or daughter date someone with a sibling thats a teen parent? What if that brother or sister has two kids being a teen parent? What if that brother or sister has 2 kids and all 3 of them were born while he/she was a teen? Why or why not?

I'm not judging I'm just asking I am a teen parent so I'm not bashing anyone or anything like that I'm just wondering..

Yes I would. My sister is married to an excellent man. His sister was a teen mom. Not all siblings are alike. Those 2 are like night and day.

i can't see why that alone would make a difference

 yes...because each person is different and just because their sibling is one way doesn't mean they will be

Yes. I would hope my son/daughter has been talked to enough on the subject of teen pregnancy and BC when they start dating.Or I should say she will be !

My DH's sister was a teen mom, my dh is the total opposite.  We didn't have our first child until he was 29.

Probably. However I think girls get more of the stigmatisim about it when it comes to dating, like if a girl is a teen mom its harder to date than a teen boy who has a child with a teen girl.
