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! 594 People

    I'm 14 and I think I'm 2 months

    now me and the guy I'm with have known each other since 2011 and we've been dating for a year now so don't judge not all teens are bad moms

    I Understand..

    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 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...

    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...

    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 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 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.
