HAVING A BABY IS HARD WORK

Marissa - January 17

I'm 15 and i just recently gave birth to my baby girl on the 17th of december. And trust raising a child is HARD!! Now that am back at school its more harder because i gotta do my homework, and watch my baby. Having a baby is not fun at all...i have to feed my baby,buy diapers,put her to sleep. She always wakes up in the middle of the night crying so i gotta get up and see whats wrong with her because i gotta make SURE she is happy and haves everything she needs. My boyfriend which is her daddy helps me out alot he works and supports his child on the weekeneds i spend the night at his house so we can raise our child together if my boyfriend wasent around to help me out i dont know what i would have done. But i just thank god that i have a healthy baby girl & that her daddy is around and supportive ( because most guys are man enough to make a baby, but their not man enough to take care of it ). I know am not the one to be saying this but to all you young girls that want baby you should wait because you have no idea how hard it is. I have a friend who is 16 & has a 2 year old daughter and now she is pregnant with TWINS..and i see all the stuff that she goes through. So it's best if yal wait. I wish i could have waited til i got much older...but i dont wish that my daughter was born because I LOVE HER WITH ALL MY HEART.

HEY IT IS REAL HARD TO TAKE CARE OF A BABY I AM 16 YEARS OLD AND I THINK IS HARD GETTING UP IN THE NIGHT GOING TO SCHOOL THE NEXT DAY. SOMETIMES MY MOM HELPS ME OUT & MY BABIES DAA=DDY IS A GOOD THING IF YOU HAVE SOMEBODY BY YOUR SAID BECASE IF YOUR ALONE YOU WON'T GET NO WHERE. THINK ABOUT IT

 

what Tania - January 19

you say, " YOU WON'T GET ANYWHERE" not "YOU WONT GET NOWHERE" gees! you say " IT'S REALLY HARD" NOT "ITS REAL HARD" it's easy to see the kind of people that are teen mums by the way they speak, the lower cla__s.

You go KM!!!!

Don't group all teen moms as lower cla__s, and a__sume they can't speak or write proper English. I have a 90 average in an intensive English course, and that's right dear, I'M A TEEN MOTHER!

to all you girls who think you need someone have a little faith, i had my son when i was 17 years old, and yes i was on welfare, i was also alone, my family lived in a different city about 8 hrs away, iwas not with the baby's dad nor did he help put. DO NOT let anyone put you down if you are on welfare, use the sources out there for you. I am now 28 and a registered nurse and guess what I did it all by myself. I still have my son and he is very happy. To all you that think teen moms are s___ts and whores, think again, they don't all come from low income families, or abusive, there are just like you, but made a mistake, it really isnt fair to put them in a catagory. True some arnt that great but on the most part they try and they try their hardest. It doesnt help to put them down all the time. they come on here for advice, help them! This is a hard world to have children even when adults it's harder as teens. My point is ladies and gentlemen, do what you have to do,, you can do it, and you will, be the best that you can be, and enjoy the precious being you have been given,noone can take away your pride unless you let them, good luck.

also i might add, i am not for or against teen pregnancies, but it happens, they do need advice when askd, they are still people with feeling, theya re scared and excited and every other feeling imaginable, it wont help to be rude. one lesson i was taught as a child, do to others as you would have them do to you, im sure you had questions when you were pg, just like these girls so help them.

Teen Mum's are not dumb.....I'm 17, pregnant and i'm a personal a__sistant for a financial planner and I am als\o doing my degree in financial planning which I should complete by the end of the year. I hate the way people make out teen mothers are just s___ts and whore's because probably around about 80% of the time girls get pregnant to boyfriends whom they've been with long enough to be cla__sed as a serious relationship. I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 3 years and both career orientated and if we do decide to keep the baby it will not make me dumb...... So stop this c___p about people being dumb because in actually fact you dont know these people...they're probably smarter than you

Of course its hard, whoever goes into it thinking its easy is in for a rude awakening. My daughters 3 months old, and I knew the minute I got pregnant it was going to be tough. And it is, not as tough as I thought though, and Im loving every minute of being a mother. But Im also not in school anymore, I OWN 2 cars, and I have my own place.

RE:Whatever - February 22

What a bitter, whiney little child you sound like. To Tania- Just because you can't make it on your own doesn't mean everyone can't. Why don't you stop living off your Mom and Dad and raise your child on your own. Your parents raised you, they don't need to be raising your kids too.

 

josh - February 22
