Quoting Ginger_g:" I'm a teenage mother and don't have no support from my family or friend just my boyfriend the thing we ... [snip!] ... etc. so as long as you educate yourself and educate your child ( And of course more then school) any person can raise a child "
How old are you??
"...differents..."?? It's difference...
"...Don't have no support..."?? Thats a double negative. Try: "I'm a teenage mother and don't have ANY support"
"As long as you educate yourself...." Which clearly you didn't.
I'm an 18 year old, I'm graduating this year. I have a job and am looking for a better more relaxed one. Heavy lifting just isn't my thing right now. My fiance is also looking for a better paid job.
I won't apologize for being a grammar nazi once in a while.
But please, don't post on a thread about how you're supposedly not a statistic and spell almost everything wrong, use double negatives, and involve unnecessary slang.
I don't know what school you went to, but send you're child to a better one.
Again, I apologize.... Just go and actually educate yourself before you tell everyone else to.
I applaud other teen mothers who have beat the statistics and brought their children into a world providing them with stability and love.
Hopefully, I can be one of those mothers too when my little one gets here.
I will admit I've arranged to be on WIC and a recieving government healthcare through the pregnancy.
Lets be honest, $7.25/hour just won't pay those expensive doctor's bills. If government healthcare will provide my child with the attention it needs whilst still being developed then I'm happy he/she is being looked at, at all.
I'm not ashamed for seeking help from the government. I am working towards an assistance free life. But for now, as long as my baby is healthy and cared for I will take anything I can get.
Government help isn't shamefull, it's there so you CAN take advantage of it when you NEED it. That's not permission to be lazy and rely on it for your entire life.
It's a helper. Get on your feet kind of thing.
I actualy found Mara's post very helpful and knowledgable. Thank you.
**Excited for my baby girl (Annika) or boy (Flynn) <3
