This is not the place to tell teenage (pregnant) girls that they will be crap mothers because they are young.

This is a teen pregnancy support forum and is to support those girls in the decisions they have already made, not for the older ladies to tell them they are stupid, bad mothers or anything else I have read recently.

If you can't be supportive then don't bother posting it. These girls deserve respect as people whatever their choices may be in life.

There is nothing to prove that young ladies are any worse at looking after and raising their kids than older ladies.

I think it's got a lot more to do with maturity than with age. Sure, everyone can point to teens who aren't responsible enough to be good moms, but if they look around they'll also see a lot of moms who had kids in their 20's and aren't responsible moms either. And sure, I know it's going to be hard being a young mom, but I also know it's hard on anyone at any age. It's not like someone automatically becomes a perfect mom just cuz they turned 21 or 25 or any other age. I'm not kidding myself. I know i'm young and I know that when the end of may gets here and my baby boy gets here with it, my life's going to change a whole lot - more than I can really imagine right now - and there's lots of times I sit here staring down at my tummy with my baby boy kicking and it makes me wonder what i've got myself into. And I know what people think and say about girls like me becoming moms like this. But I also know that i'm going to try as hard as I can to be as responsible as I can, and not just to take good care of my baby boy but also to prove all those people wrong who think i'm going to be a rotten mom just cuz i'm not as old as they think I should be.

That's just my opinion.

Its not about age....... Its about the reason any woman falls pregnant...... Young or old you shouldn't get pregnant to have some one to love/ love you....... Prove a point or to hold on to a man......... You should have a baby for one reason only...... Because you feel ready to support nurture and love another person holy and unconditionally........ No one woman regardless of age/ maturity/ sexual preferance or finantual situation makes a better mother than any other......... What makes a good mum is her willingness to give herself wholy and unconditionally to her child.......

Most teen mothers work twice as hard to provide for their child or children. But there are plenty more then a handful of teens who could careless and spoil the hard work of others and ruin the reputation of teen mamas. Props to all the girls who provide, care, love and raise their babies.

I think that people just dont give teen moms a chance. I think because (in most istuations not all) the girl has lived under her parents roof and not really had any major responsibilites and therefor people dont think that its possible. Just my opinion and I agree with you alll, someone the same age as me could be a horrible mother just like someone whos 40 or the other wsay around, a great mother

Teen mothers don't get a fair chance to prove to the world that they good mothers. I personally think teen moms do better than older ones. They can also relate to the children better when they are older.

I know alot of teen mothers who is a better mother to their babies then my cousin and my brother's ex wife. My cousin left her kids with my aunt and uncle (the grandparents) so she can be with a man. So to me she choosed a man over her kids. And my cousin is 26 or 27 one. I don't keep up with her age. My brother's ex wife. Likes to stay in jail I think. Yes my brother gots coustdy of his kids. But over christmas when my niece and newphes was visiting their mom she got herself put in jail. Good thing that their other grandmother lived by. But in my opinion. There is alot of teens that are good parents.

I Agree. Im Nearly 16 With A 3 Month Old Son. People, Strangers And People I Thought Were My Friends Have Made My Life Hard Since Becoming Pregnant With Jack. They Talked About Me Behind My Back And Looked Down Their Nose At Me. I Work Hard To Provide For My Son And Im Still In School To Get The Qualifications I Need To Give Jack The Life He Deserves.
