    I am so tired of having people judge teen

    parents. TIRED OF IT! Just because you're grown, it does not mean that you will be a "great parent". An adult parent could just as well loose their job, divorce, etc. Being a great parent does not come with a certain age, my parents were 17 when they had me and honestly they've...

    I had a boyfriend and we were stupid in having unprotected sex because I ended up with biracial twin boys. I have raised them to be great young adults. I do not and never will regret the experience in having sex with a black man. It was fantastic. It was very hard for me at...

    Pregnant At Sixteen.

    Teenage girls that get pregnant might as well walk around branded as a who re, immature, irresponsible, and incapable of being as good of a Mother as adult women. I know not all people think this way- but the vast majority look at us, and see something that they, and society, are...

    Is honestly kill myself

    if I was a teen parent. Like what the ****, how retarder could you be to get pregnant before having a stable career. Unless you were raped or rich, you must have autism to get pregnant as a teen. Lmao

    18 and pregnant. I'm happy

    that I am because now I'm more motivated to do things. I have something to live for! The best part is that if you don't feel loved, your baby will always love you. If this is not my blessing, I don't know what is
