Quoting Circle K:" Up until last year, I was getting nasty stares from people because they thought I was a teen mom with ... [snip!] ... But I think labeling a 19 year old as a "teen mom" with all the negative connotations to it is just stupid. You're an adult."
I agree. There is a huge difference between MOST 19 year olds and MOST 16 year olds. I don't think we should be classified as "teen moms". I certainly do not label myself as a teen mom. I hate the way it sounds :roll:
What does "cutting my evils" mean?
I agree with Reaper. Age does not define how good of a mother you are. Just be a good mom, regardless of your age, and ignore the critics.
Quoting youngmumtoshawnathomas:" im 37 weeks pregnant with a little girl and i cant wait to meet her, but im getting so fed up of people cutting my evils becuase im a teen mum does anyone else get this ?"
Being a teen mom doesn't define who you are as a mother... Don't title yourself as a mother.. If you are good mother that takes care of their child and puts the child's needs before your own. Then you are a good mother and that is all. I've seen parents in their 30's that choose themselves over their own child's needs just saying...
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" What does "cutting my evils" mean? I agree with Reaper. Age does not define how good of a mother you are. Just be a good mom, regardless of your age, and ignore the critics."
She isnt from America so it could be one of their terms haha
honestly no body has the right to be giving a pregnant woman grief.
raising a baby in your teen years is just as hard as raising one in your late 20s so ignore the stupid ones who label you and stand tall with your head high. Your a mom and you cant let little stuff like that get to you any more cause you have WAY more important stuff to think about
People make rude comments to "young" mothers, but you just have to realize that just because your young doesn't mean anything. Your not the first one, and you sure in hell won't be the last. I get looked at, and get asked how old I am by most people and they look at me in discust. Others shouldnt matter. All that should matter is you and your family and if you think your being a good mother. So just keep your head upp:)
With me no one really talked to me about being prego at 17 they may have talked behind my back, but man oh man i got glares alot of them, and if looks could kill, id be half way dead. Alot of people dont like teen moms but i dont see the problem with it. We may just end up being better parents maybe...
