i hear of or see all these teenage girls pregnant lately. do they not teach sex ed anymore or do parents not teach these kids to practice safe sex?
i know they are going to do it if they really want to and you cant always be with them 24/7. but it is really getting bad when you have middle schoolers pregnant. i know of at least three in high school that are or rumor is that they are.
what is the world coming to babies raising babies. and the sad part is sometimes the parents of these teens end up raising the kids themselves.

It's because people glorify teen pregnancy with shows like The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Teen Mom!

Why not focus on the kids that are keeping their legs closed and trying to make something of themselves! The kids that are saving themselves until they are married!!! Wow! What a novel idea!!!

Aww!! Is somebody jealous that she can't find anyone to screw her?
your an idiot. nobody is jealous cause they cant find anyone to screw them. some people are concerned about all these young girls and young boys messing their life up by having babies too young.
everyone wants better for their children then they had, but some dont want to teach them to use protection or be safe if they are having sex. then they want to cry and complain how their children are having a baby at such a young age. well if you teach them to be safe and use protection that could prevent a lot of heartache and hard times for these teenagers.

Supposedly, the teen pregnancy rates are on a declining trend and we have shows like "Teen Mom" to thank for it. I don't feel that scripted reality TV has anything to do with the teen pregnancy statistics though. Teens don't see things from any other perspective except their own and have the attitude of "it won't happen to me".

I have noticed the alarming teen pregnancy happening in this little town of Franklin and know a few of the young ladies who are now mothers. In many instances, I believe the parents discussed condoms and birth control, but the kids just don't bother. They are too immature to understand the emotional, physical, and life long effects of their decisions.

Peer pressure doesn't help either. When all your friends are becoming moms and dads and making it seem like it's the "best thing ever", I'm sure these young minds see the only option is to have a baby too.

I'm not saying that age qualifies a person to be a good parent or not, but it sure does make for a difficult future for all involved. It really is a sad sight!

And parents are allowing boys and girls to move in together and allowing them to even sleep together in their home and then so happy they are going to be grandparents. Nothing like a baby but you at least need a job and means of support. Parents are partly to blame. Put you daughter on birth control. ESP when you know they are having sex. Parents have no indication with their kids and are
Afraid to tell them the reality of things. Teenagers have been having sex for years. You can be a friend to your daughter but also a
Parent

The shows like Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant motivated me and alot of my friends to make sure we didn't have kids while we were still young bc we saw what a struggle they went through. Not just that but it taught me alot when I was a teenager about how to keep myself safe from becoming pregnant or getting an STD. I am now 21 and I do have a one year old daughter with my fiancÚ I've been with for 7 years but it didn't happen bc we wasn't protecting ourselves but bc his condom broke and my birth control failed from where I had been taking antibiotics for strep throat a few weeks before hand. But just because you are young does not mean you are not capable of being a great parent. My daughter never needs or wants for anything bc we make sure she has everything possible. I see some young girls who are better parents than people in their 30s that have a baby. It all depends on how the young mother and father take to stepping up responsibility and realizing they have to grow up for that child. Just because we are young doesn't automatically make us bad parents.
