Basically, I hope & pray that all of you young mothers, want to be young mothers; please read this, think hard about it!
Why? Are you not getting the attention you want from your family? Are you being bullied at school? Me, myself; I was 14 & wanted a baby because I wasn't getting attention from my family. Well I started thinking about how hard it will be, 14 & a baby... Wow! Its hard to raise a child at such a young age. On top of that, your body is still going through changes! I got pregnant at the age of 18 & had my son when I was 19 & in the 12th grade. When i tell you it was hard, IT WAS HARD & going to school!! I did attend my prom & walked the stage to get my diploma, which was a Blessing! I thank God everyday for not letting me get pregnant at such a young age, cause I probably would've drop out of school! I know some of you, your family says they will support you, but when it all boils down; they was just talking. Some families will help. Mine said they will, but soon as my son was born & needed something; it was me that had to do it! I don't call my son a mistake, he's a Blessing!! Education is the key! Its hard trying to get your education & raise a child when you are still a child yourself! Its hard to get a good paying job, even with a diploma! Really think about your options! I am only here to help!
i agree! i had JUST learned about sex when i was 12 from my mom!!! at what age do they figure this stuff out? media? interent? kids at school? honestly, what is this world coming to. hormones at this age shoulnd't be raging that high, for SEX of all things. i can see them craving foods, getting angry, having B.O. but sex?! WHAT the CRAP! i am 17 now. when i was 12, all my friends and me would play with barbies and watch spongebob! why cant they just go be obsessed with twilight like all other pre-teen/teenagers would be? seriously....if you are young enough to have sex, then you are responsible to raise a baby. because you obviously think you are mature enough to have sex....when you are so not.
Kids are not the same as when u & I was at the age of 12! Thats why I'm telling my kids to wait. They are 10, 11 & 15. I'm teaching my kids that education is the only thing that should be on their minds. Enjoy your childhood, cause once you get grown; there's no turning back!! I pray that my topic touches alot of teens on here.. It's hard raising a child & you are still one yourself!
im 13 and well my family give atention and i aint being bullied :/ but i really want a baby... i know it seems mad and i get what you are saying but having a baby is all i can think about :/ is there any other reasons why other then not getting atention from family or getting bullied ?
Could be your hormones, because your body is going through changes. Or it could be your friends or the kids at school. Keep your mind on your education! Enjoy your childhood while you can. Because there's no turning back after you have a baby! Enjoy going to school dances, going out with friends, going to your prom, most of all graduating from high school & college! Then think about getting married & having kids!! Your time now is very valuable.
I am 22 and have two great kids. the first of which i had the day before I turned 20. They are my life but right now I cant just pick up and go. i cant go out whenever my friends want to (clubbing, movies, shopping whatever). I just joined kickboxing to get back into shape but i may have to quit because i cant find a sitter for my infant. Being a young mom is hard. I didnt finish college and i want to go back but once again, i have noone to watch my son.Take the time you have now as a teen to just be a teen. go out with friends, get your education and be happy doing that. if you are worried that all you can think about is having a baby, then maybe you should seek profesional help. I dont say that with the intention of being rude or arogant but maybe it would be a good idea. start babysitting all the time.
It's natural to want a baby at a young age because of hormones and stuff, but immature to act on it.
I'm sixteen. I really want a baby. Not just a baby, but a child, the whole lot. Perhaps I'm more mature than others, more ready than others seeing as I've thought it through and know I don't just want the baby, but I want the kid as well, even the teenager.
But I know that however ready I think I am, I'm not. So I'm saving money, getting an education, a steady relationship, getting experience by baby sitting. I'll have my baby when I'm older. I would advise all teenagers who want to be mothers to do the same.
