I Hate When People Judge Teen Moms

Not all teen moms use or abuse the system, are bad parents, or glamorize being teen moms and getting pregnant. Read our stories before you judge us! 664 People

    18yrs Old And Had A Baby

    So I keep finding this dilemma in my life. I will always be judged for having a child at a young age. I understand that it was an irresponsible act of myself and my child's father. However even though we are not together or associate with one another other then the fact we have a...

    I am not a teen mom and I don't know any teen

    parents personally but I have the common sense to not judge them. Its actually extremely rude to do that. You aren't better than them. There are some really good teen parents out there. And some teen parents are way better parents than some parents in their 30s and 40s. Having a...

    hate hate hate it. And i'm only 14 weeks along,

    the more I show, the more judgement i'm going to get. Let alone when the baby comes. I was told was week that i'm ridiculous if i don't put my baby up for adoption, that this country doesn't need another teen mom on welfare. I was so shocked, I didn't say anything, but I wish...

    Not All Teen Moms Are The Same

    This is one of my biggest pet peeves, when people judge teen moms! Being a teen mom myself, I know how it feels when people let us down saying we aren't mature enough and how hard it will be, ect. we know, we get it! But I have seen on many TV shows how some of the girls make us...

    Mistakes happen. You can

    either be a pessimistic *** about it, or you can except reality and just be happy for the pregnant teen. I realize it's not an ideal situation, but you might as well get excited about it because a baby is coming you want it or not (unless you abort it, which I'm totally against...

    I hate others who judge teen moms.

    I was a single teen mom at 16. I found it very hard to be a teenage mom and going to school. Two of my girls are single and pregnant. Melissa is 13 and Jessica is 16. They both got pregnant and are doing good but hard for them as it was for me.

    When people judge teen moms they are just

    judging. They don't know the stories behind how that baby was made. Yes sometimes it is their fault but ok at least they are taking care of their child. I remember after my son was born I would walk around with him like any normal mother would do and I would hear people calling...

    I abhor others who judge teen moms

    and no nothing about this topic. Guys, I am speaking to you got it. Many males call us filthy and dirt names because we had sex and had kid during our early or middle teenage years. Many young girls are raped by the male gender and end up pregnant. This is my story too just...

    I was a teen mom at the age of 16,

    I had my second daughter at the age of 19. Of course I had the support of my family. I didn't want to be the typical story of a teen mom on welfare so I went to nursing school and obtained my RN/associates degree by the time I was 20. I was now able to support my children...

    I thought I would share why I hate the fact that people hate on teen parents. Mainly the moms.The reason I hate it is because they have done nothing wrong. Everyone who hates on a teen mom needs to stop watching shows like '' 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom'' and if you're british...

    I have a friend who wanted to get pregnant.

    Everybody kept telling her what her reasons was, but she ignored everyone and did so anyway. I wasn't even able to stop her. Everybody told her that she was going to end up like every other teenage moms who would eventually undergo abortion, but she proved them all wrong. Some...

    but teen moms need more support than judging. Just because you disagree with their choices doesn't give you the right to be a jerk.

    should have an abortion because of it being a "rapist baby" no matter what it's still a baby, I think abortion is terrible, and things happen for a reason, so yes. I'm going to keep it, and love it. As for the man, when I tell my mom she will probably make me tell the police...

    Too often we judge people on too little

    information. But instead of judging people on what they do and where they are in life, why don't you first look at their character, morals, and situations? So with that in mind, why do people still judge us teen moms? What have we done to deserve such hateful stares and...

    I do understand, but yet, there is no reason to voice your negative opinion. The reason teen moms have a bad rep. is because of people running their mouth on their opinion, not facts. But don't get me wrong, there are bad teen moms, but not all of them, and we all should not fall...

    Personally, I think pregnancy is just freaky. But still. You don't just pass your judgement on young mothers like you're some kind of expert or like you get to play god. I have 3 friends, all under the age of 19, who are married and have children. And they are the best damn...
