I've read a lot of your postings and was just curious as to what your story is. You seem to speak from your own experiences, as do I.

LOL, I was just about to post you something! I actually speak from experience given that I'm 29 . When youre 29 you read some of these stories and ridiculous advice given and it truly makes you angry to see how they don't think realistically. I was never that naive at a teen myself but i have made mistakes and leanred from them but really some of these girls actually commend other teens here for staying in abusive relationships , being beaten while pregnant , cheated on and they actually believe these guys love them. Its so frustrating to read how many of these girls have no self respect and no self control. Some of them think I am rude but really all I see when they post these comments is "self defensive tactics" I am sure you know what I mean . So whats yours story?

I have three little girls and will be 29 in October. I just feel like so many of these girls aren't living in the real world. I used to be one of them, believeing that if I was patient that everything would magically fall into place. It never happened until I got real with myself and made it happen.

Why are you on a TEEN PREGNANCY forum if your 29 years old? No wonder your so rude to everyone...

 

Emma2 - July 11

I completely get that! its so true , it starts with you. There is no one in the world who will love you unconditionally and forever but your children. Relationships fall apart at our age too everyday because people rely and depend on someone to make them happy. You have 3 girls wow! I am 21 weeks pregnant with my 1st and terrified but I find out the s_x tomorrow.:) How old are your girls?

We are on hear because alot of these girls need a little direction from someone who has a little life experience and knowledge. Some are scared and need sound advice, not the ramblings of a 15 year old who thinks she is going to get pregnant by giving a guy and b__w job and then swallowing.

No wonder you don't understand where we are coming from...you weren't a teen mom...and you don't know how it is..

I was 19 with my first child.

I was talking to Emma

 

Emma2 - July 11

Lillmomma , I was pregnant at your age and aborted because I knew I should have been more responsible and I knew that at 17 that boy was not the boy i would love and be with forever. I dont understand your advice , I never said i didnt make some of the same mistakes.

 

Emma2 - July 11

Lillmomma , I dont post here regularly actually . I post on signs of pregnancy. And princessesMom is right you all need someone with life experience to show you the way. The most destructive things I have seen so far is teens offering teens BAD advice to just repeat the vicious . cycle.

How did you not understand my advice? I was being positive, and telling the girl that it is possible to be happy and for everything to work out! I never gaurenteed anything!

hi! Sorry to b___t in!! I just wanted to say Emma, the first time I read one of your posts I thought "Gee, why is this girl being such a b___h?" Then I thought to myself, she said exactly what I was thinking!!! A lot of girls on here have serious questions and want serious help, and you give good advice to them!! The others just want to be coddled and told they are right when in fact they and everyone else knows that they arent being as intelligent as they should be, and I am guilty of not posting and giving them a dose of reality when they need it! I, in fact, will be a teen mom (barely! Baby is due in August, maybe a little sooner, and I will be 20 in November) but I have also been married for over a year, work part time, and am a full time college student, so I dont think my experiences are the same as the younger teens. I think if they are so sure they are old enough to have s_x, they should know how to use birth control correctly, understand how the body and pregnancy works, etc. and I think its great that you are willing to tell them that! Sorry this is so long!! I find myself distracted and tending to ramble the closer I get to delivery!! And PrincessesMom, I think its great that you are here to give advice too! :)

Why are we bashing Emma, all she is doing is trying to give us some advise. (isnt that why we post our questions) Just take what advise you get and be happy that someone is helping you. Isnt that why u are on this forum? to get help?

 

lilmomma88 - July 11

we're not "bashing" emma! i just dont understand why sometimes her advice has to be soo cold! you can be blunt in a civil way!

There is a place for older folk on the teen forum. Without them the forum can degenerate into a place where the blind lead the blind. At the same time it is important to be kind and not judgmental. Too many critical words discourage others from posting, and the forum then dies. I have seen this happen on several previous occasions, and it is close to happening again. God bless!

Grandpa Viv how old are you?
