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! 538 People

    Okay for the ones who asked I'm 14

    and yes, I'm pregnant. I know what you guys are thinking "she's too young", "she shouldn't be having sex" exc. last year I found out that I was pregnant with twins and I didn't know what to do I was only 13 so I told my mom and she was obviously disappointed but she was also...

    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...

    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...

    All So True!

    I love seeing so many Mom's and even people without babies stand behind teen/ young mothers. I got pregnant at 18 and had my son at 19. My son was born at 27 weeks and I always have people ask, oh you gave birth early because you were young? no that is not why, but thanks for...

    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...

    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.

    I'm a Teen Mom (does 19 count?), and most of the crappiest parenting I've seen comes from 30somethings raising their kids without any knowledge of how to appropriately follow through with realistic parenting techniques. My child is well-adjusted and liked by his peers because I...
