These statistics seem like crap to me! Yes I'm very young and getting prepared to have my third child. But I'm passing all of my classes. I'm getting ready to take drivers ed courses to get my permit and then a work permit to get a job. I've had nothing but support from my family and friends and even people I don't know! My kids were adopted by my aunt and uncle until I'm 100% financially stable and I see them almost everyday. My kids have shown no signs of having any issues they're growing up healthy and happy. My first pregnancy went fine except I accidentally induced myself Dx. Long story short these statistics are crazy. I know that some women are not able to care for another human being who depends on your love and your time and your nourishment but not all teen mothers are "unfit".quote

In my opinion you are going to get moms at any age who just aren't going to be able to be good parents... whether or not you're 16, 26 or 36 isn't really what makes you a good or bad mother. Your choices do. It may be harder to make the right choices at a younger age, I agree, but being 16 doesn't mean you will be the world's worst mom. My mother had me at 18 and I ended up better off as a baby than my sister was when my mom had her at 21. Three extra years of age and "experience and maturing" did her no good at all. She was eating healthy and wasn't into drugs when I was an infant... but with my sister my mother had became addicted to drugs and continued to smoke and eat as she wanted during her pregnancy with my sister. She got her college degree in computers and had work when she was pregnant with me and when I was young, but around age 23 or 24 she stopped working and is now, at age 38, living off the state. She was a better teen-mom, then she was as "an experienced" mother.
And then there is me. I do not fit into the statistics either. I'm having my first at age 19. I graduated top of my class, and early at that, from high-school. I've made mistakes, like every other person on earth has, but I've grown from them. If you have ever checked out my profile on here, it says I have 3 angels up in the sky. I was diagnosed with cystic ovaries (both sides) and was told I could never have a child (obviously, the doctors were all wrong because I will be giving birth to one VERY healthy baby boy any week now). Judgement aside, the first time I got pregnant was at age 15. That said, I got pregnant in the past from sexual abuse... Anyways, I have a job, a car, an apartment, and in my father's words "twice as much as what we had for you and your sister combined". I was walked out on by the baby's father, but so are the 20 or 30 some-odd year-olds that give birth... My child is just as well off with me as if he was with any other mother out there. I know how I want to raise my child. I know how I want him to grow up. The respect he needs to have for women and men alike, the values and priorities I would like him to live with/by, AND he has all he needs and SO MUCH more.
With all that said, the original post, without the note added to it, came off very harsh and judgmental, but with the top note added, I was okay with it. The only reason I went off into a rant like this one due to the amount of negative posts I've read in response. Please, don't feel like I am targeting anyone or trying to be rude, but these are my opinions...
