Has anyone other than myself noticed the extremley high number of pregnant teens and teen parents.. guys use condoms.. girls birth control! Both you can get at the health department for free.. and parents you need to be doing your part to instead of facting like it will never happen to your kid.. step up to the plate!
I have been saying the same thing!!! I am the proud parent of 2. One just got married, the other just graduated. I took part in my kids activities, while growing up, & they know right from wrong, and that they can talk to me at any time, about any thing, & I will give them the best advise & help them any way I can. I can't even begin to imagine what the cost of living will be, before the tobblers today are grown!!!

Right on! when my kids were teenagers, I knew where they were, if it was at a friends house, I talked to the friends mother. I always knew where they were, a phone number,when they were gonna be home, etc., My kids ages, 23 & 18, are grown, and I'm NOT a grandparent, yet. Get involved in your kids activities, and their schooling.

I think it's awful. kids having kids and then expecting their parents and grandparents to raise them while they whore around and have more kids. make them raise them and never babysit for them. plus there is more bi-racial babies being born now than ever. white chicks are a black mans trash. sorry but thats how i feel. ive never seen a white girl that dates a black man that was clean or pretty. trash is trash.
Who are you to say that every white woman that is with a black man is trash. Also where what is your problem with bi racial children? I have to of my own and wouldn't trade them for anything in this world. They are both adopted because my husband and I can not have children of our own. I may not have gave birth to them the natural way but I gave birth to them through my heart and it kills me to here someone talk about them or anyone like them in a bad way it is not their fault what color they are. Haven't you heard GOD loves everyone no matter their coloring not just white people!!!!!!!!!

I agree with you, if I am not providing financial support for you and your baby. Are you drawing financial assistance? or working and providing total financial support?

Hey! "ANYMORE"? When did they ever throughout history, for the most part(probably over 90% of the time) wait until they were 18, or married? Most cases of the probably 5-6% who didn't was because they couldn't find anyone, and then the other 1-2% is you!!! A lot, or even most of these people were raised in church and had good morals too. Having sex before 18, or marriage doesn't make you a bad person - it makes you "NORMAL"!!!!!!!!!!
Well, that's just great. Now some teenage girl who was trying her best to wait is getting even more pressure that she isn't normal and doesn't fit in. I know because this is how I felt. I had strong feelings about sex before marriage but the older I got the more I seemed to not fit in. Even though I was kind and pretty and had excellent grades, I felt like there was a club that I couldn't get into. So when I started dating Mr. Right, who I am now married to, I lost my virginity. I would give anything to go back and wait. Our relationship would have been alot less complicated. I am so tired of media and people spreading this message that it is normal. Just because it is done doesn't make it a healthy choice. I remember a Redbook issue, where a woman wrote in and said she wanted to wait until she was married but her boyfriend was pressuring her. What was the response? Give it up before he leaves her! What kind of response is that to give someone. Young girls, if you want to wait, wait! If he is going to leave you, chances are he will still leave you later on when things get tough or you just aren't in the mood. Find a guy who shares your belief. My husband and I both shared this idea of one partner for life. We were both virgians. But we gave in to peer pressure and to hormones.

Yeah, I did the same thing called there friends mom. Oh everything was fine and my daughter got pregant at her house. The Mother anwser was. Will there going to do it anyway why not in a safe place. My daughter was 16, 4.0 grade average, honor student. But she thought she was in love. After the father thought about raising a baby, he said it wasn't his and would not have anything to do with this beautiful little girl. I know mistakes happen, I thought my child was safe and being watched over by a so called friend, but she wasn't. I helped my daughter rise your child so she would finsh school and go to college. Not the one she want but is did graduate from both with honors.
How my daughter is married has 2 more kids and a great job. SHe is a wonderful mother. She took care of your child when she was home I was more or less a babysitter. So dont tell me you think your child is doing right. Staying with friends, Thats what I thought. So you got away them not one of them having a child. Thats great I am happy for you. But dont judge the one who been there and done that thinking there kids were will taken care of. I wouldnt trade the time I had with my grand daughter for anything. Its not always the parents fault what happens with there kids, you can only rise them and teach them so much the rest it up to them what they do with it, not the parents. And no I wasnt a teen mother I waited until I got married.

Class doesn't necessarily refer to strictly economics... Class is social-economic and classless behavior is reciprocated throughout the tiers of American society.

I completely agree. However, just because a young girls gets pregnant does not mean she is low class. She has made a mistake that is impossable to hide from the world. It is how she handles this responsibility that shows her class. And I do not refer only to whether she recieves assistance. I have no problem with people on that end as long as they are using it to help them as they better themselves. It is how she treats, raises, and cares for her child that shows her level of class.

Exactly. There are outstanding young parents out there and perhaps I was a bit generalizing when I made it sound that they were all failures.

It's important that we don't place the burden on the mother's and that men step up. That includes friends of young men who get these young women pregnant. Make sure you let them know this is not a joke and that this is unacceptable and they must take on a positive role.

We need to reinforce the community. The sense of community is seemingly lost even in small towns where community was once all there was.

I was a teen parent, and my parents did a wonderful job with me, they thought they always knew where I was at, however, you don't just get pregnant by sneaking out and spending the night with someone, I would meet my boyfriend before or sometimes after work or school. It happens and just because your child is not pregnant doesn't mean thier not doing it. Don't be one of those parents who thinks it will never be your child.

What do you mean, "You thought that her Mother was a friend", that's what I am talking about, she didn't do what a "REAL MOTHER", or "REAL FRIEND", was suppose to do, and look what happened. That's the kind of people I'm talking about. Sounds to me like that so called "friend" of yours, was one sick individual, that needed taking out behind the woodshed, and had the hell beat out of her!!!

That happens all the time, a previous boyfriend's mom was ok with us having sex, she would be home and we'd still do it, another friend of mine, her parents would throw parties with alcohol, they would not allow us to leave we all had to spend the night. Because she allowed sex in her home does not make her a sick person, may have not been right, but instead of beating the hell out of her, you talk to your own child, because if wasn't going to be at the friends house it would have happened somewhere else.
