Teen pregnancy, and what I think.
I am 16 year old male and yes i have had sex before but that is beside the point. The thing about teen pregnancy that most people dont get is becoming a parent is a big step yes some teenagers can’t handle it, but that doesn’t mean that all teenagers cant handle babys. I’m not promoting teen pregnancy its just i feel like that this is a problem in society; that if a teenager is pregnant or has a baby it seems like already society labels them as immature, stupid, and irresponsible.
My personal opinon is that i love children and if i could have a chance to have a kid right now i would, BUT!!! Only if i could financly support a baby on my own and give a 110% attention to this baby, and be able to still go to school. Although i wish all these things could happen, but most likley not going to right now. Their are plenty of people that i know from my school that have a kid and their having an extremly hard time juggling all these things. Seeing this just makes me think “yeah i would like a kid, but i wouldnt want to bring a kid into this world that i could not support on my own.”
Many of people that are teenagers and have kids or are pregnant feel like they are looked down upon just because they have a kid and i feel like this isn’t right at all, i understand that you may wonder oh can that young man/woman really support a child? But that should never give you the right to discriminate on people that are young and have children, ya that could have been a mistake but it is part of their life now and it is most likely that if they decided to have that kid they must acctually care about it to, so they would do anything and everything for that child, because that baby is now apart of their lives and always will be.
So the one thing i ask you about if you were a teenager again or if you are a teenager would you want to be descriminate you just because you had a child. I certainly wouldn’t want them to.
