I think teen pregnancy is not good because some teens can get hurt off of teen pregnancy
and i also think that teens should not have boyfriends because that is what make girls get pregnant at that young age which is not good so i think that they should stop.
Teen pregnancy is only a problem because we make it out to be. We portray teen moms, as parents who are don't know how to take care of a baby, which is actually the case with most 1st time moms, and that they rack up welfare money, again not true. Only 1% of teen moms are on welfare. Even better, the most accurate studies show teen motherhood is not socially costly and may even be economically beneficial for certain poor populations.
People always say that your life is ruined whenever you have a child at such a young age. It actually motivated me to fight stronger for the best in my child's life and mines. I graduated, I am working, I am going to school. I am fairly just as well as other teen students without a child.
There is no way one could consider teen pregnancy a good thing. Far too many lives have been damaged due to teen pregnancy in the past. The teen for one must make adult decisions regarding the infant, thereby taking away the joy of being a teen. The infant may pay a large price by being raised by a child as well. Both of these would cause life long problems.
I am not a teen mom, but I am not against it. My family is against it. My friend had a baby recently. My parents were upset about it and didnt want me to hang out with her. The way i see it, a baby is a good thing. As long as you are responsible and mature enough to handle it, you can make a good mom. And because your young, you can love you child longer than someone who has their baby at 35. I hate it when people bash on teen girls who are pregnant or have a baby. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with it. Get over it.
I am the product of a teen pregnancy, and both my life and my mother's life are awesome. We have a very close relationship due to our small age difference. I am a 3.5 student and am considered a nice, well-rounded kid by many of the adults in my life. We are both well off now, regardless of early decisions. While my mother did not want a child as a teenager, she still raised me right and she showed that she could be an amazing mother. There have been no negative consequences to my early birth, and I would simply not exist if so many people said that teen pregnancy is a bad thing.
I think I you're old enough to take a risk of getting pregnant and you think you're mature enough then why not? If you KNOW you will give you're baby the best you can then why is it bad? I don think you should plan to get pregnant but not all teen parents are terrible parents and not all of them go on welfare? Why do teen mothers get bashed on? They just want to hear what any other mother wants to hear. Congratulations on the little bundle of joy. Just because you're a teen doesn't mean you won't make a good parent. Teen mom and other things like that give us false perception on it.
I'm a teen mother so of course i see nothing wrong with it. There are many advantages. You're younger and keep up with them better. You can have a closer relationship. Teen mothers are just as good as a mom who is 35 and in some cases better. We do the same thing any other mom does.
I myself am a teen Mommy, I myself can say it does have it's ups and it's downs. Age to me really doesn't matter it's all about the maturity level and how patient you are. When i found out i was pregnant i had just turned 17 years old. I was so unprepared to have a baby financially, But i had a bunch of support from my family. Me being as mature as i am i kept the baby and got a well paying job to support me and him. I completely support teen pregnancy if you can emotionally and financially handle it. I also support abortion if it is a life and death situation. I also support adoption aswell, Adoption isn't a bad word! It's completely okay!! If you can't handle the baby or it just isn't the right time for you it's okay you're not doing wrong you're giving that child a chance to start their life. Trust me i kept my little boy and i am so happy every time i see his little face early in the morning my heart skips a beat, it's just so beautiful that i could possibly make something so precious! It's totally worth it and if you're getting a lot of hate and judgement from people just block them out of your life you really don't need to hear them rant, it's definitely worth pushing everyone out of your life, it better to be just you, your GF/BF and your baby a lot less drama. Just keep your head up and em-braise what's coming <3
Most teen mothers will see this as growing up, and will fight more for what is right for her baby. Just like ANY other mother. Teen moms have more to deal with school, parents, drama, boyfriends, and their baby. Just because they are young doesn't meant they don't know what to do. If you trust a teen babysitting your child, i think you can trust her with her own. Teen mothers should not be bashed on from society.
I've seen mothers saying how this makes them stronger. What about the baby? The baby may go through difficult times. It's a shame to see that some people support this and say yes. It's absolutely disgusting. The mother can barely support the baby most of the time. The fathers usually take off. I hope people come to their senses and vote no.
I honestly think that having a baby while still a teenager is wrong, why have a baby why you're still in school, be a teenager, have fun instead of having a baby. We don't need more babies in this world. All of our taxes go to these irresponsible teenager moms who made a bad decision! Wear protection, get on birth control or don't have sex. Be more responsible of yourselves. Think about all of that stress as a kid with school and future and adding a kid into that problem. Finish school, go to college, have a successful job and either adopt or then get pregnant. Don't do it now. I'm against teen pregnancy, I think it's filthy and irresponsible. Have safe sex and figure out your future first.
As a teenage girl, I find teenage pregnancy to be incredibly irresponsible. If you were raped, I understand, but teens wanting to have a baby? I don't care if motherhood isn't costly. I don't care if it's somehow helping the economy- you can do that when you're older! A baby isn't like a new dog or cat- that is a person you are responsible for shaping, for building into something wonderful, and you think you can handle it with such little life experience? Face the music, ladies. Once you have a child, your life really isn't your own: it's your child's now. It's not about you anymore: it's about them. You had time to spend on yourself and you just went and blew it: that was your time to be selfish, to live, to laugh, to be, well, a teen!
Teens haven't even started their lives and they are already having a child of their own. Their just kids that's why imma stay abstinence. My other always said to live my life , do what I want to do before I think about having or starting one of my own. Get an education and get a high paying job. Get a good husband, then start a family of your own.
Every baby is a blessing. However, teen pregnancy is a not a good thing. Teens are not emotionally of financially ready to be parents. They need time to mature, and learn how to take care of themselves before they can properly take care of a newborn. Often that job falls to other family members, which is unfair to everyone.
Teen pregnancy not only negatively affects the young mother, but also the child. A young mother is less likely to take care of herself as she should during her pregnancy. This leads to more issues once the baby is born. The child is more likely to grow up in a low-income family. Without a college education, the person will be stuck in a lower-income bracket. It is also way more likely the child will become a teen parent as well.
Few teens can financially support a child after its birth. It is important to stay in school and not get pregnant so the person can gain educational and job skills. It is important that a person be somewhat mature before becoming pregnant. This can prevent a lot of problems that could be experienced in the future.
Teenagers do NOT value their childhoods when they choose to become pregnant.
Understand NOT all teens choose to become pregnant; there people who FORCE teens to carry pregnancies to term against their will because they are AGAINST abortion. The teenage years should be reserved for delaying pregnancy and child rearing. It is OKAY for teenagers to wait until they reach adulthood to have kids. I feel that sex, pregnancy, childbirth, abortion, adoption and parenting should be limited to ADULTS ONLY. This applies to adults age 20 or older.
Teenagers should not have a baby, they should have fun with their friends and be social. Not sitting home and take care of a baby. There is a lot of time and stress. You need to be more ressponsible and act like an adult. They do no have the experience.
I get it that people make mistakes and all but it is getting way out of hand right now.Being a mom while still a teenager distroys us emotionally and physically.Your still young,while ruin the only chance you get to have fun because when you grow older you're going to want to settle down,wel...,most of us...But that still doesn't make it okay to distroy your childhhood.This doesn't distroys you but it can affect the baby being most of the times it's hard to provide for them and them can drive you to make stupid decisions.
