Young Single Mothers are Better than Their Reputation

Young Single Mothers are Better than Their Reputation

Without a doubt young single mothers have a less than stellar reputation when it comes to disciplining children and raising a family. Many people in our society look down on them, but I believe that young single mothers deserve our support, not our scorn, and that if we give them our support they can create successful families. Why are Young Single Mothers So Maligned? Young single mothers are often viewed as being “kids having kids”, and many look down on them because they assume they are promiscuous or stupid falling pregnant. However, it should be recognised that many young people are having sex, often with multiple partners, yet not all of these girls become mothers. Like most young people, girls think they are bullet proof and live the same lifestyle as everybody else, until something goes wrong and they discover that they are pregnant. Many of these girls do not abort their baby, but bravely face a future as a single mom, including the social stigma and the implications for their own dreams and desires in life. These girls should not be looked upon as whores but rather as heroes! What Single Mothers Give Up Young single mothers have to grow up quickly. They may have been fooling around and carefree when they fell pregnant, but they have to face the reality of a completely different life for the sake of their child.   1. They Give Up Fun! Most young mothers have to make the decision to give up fun, not being able to go out with their friends partying and relaxing. They may have their child minded occasionally, but the overall carefree lifestyle of youth has passed away for them.   2. They Give Up Their Dreams Most young girls have dreams for the future, and most of ...

Most people think that most often teenage mothers help establish the idea that all teenagers are self centered, lazy and useless, but this could not be further from the truth!  Sure, there may be some who fit the image of laziness and selfishness, but there are also those who provide a very positive image, if you have eyes to see it! Which Teenage Mothers Help Restore the Teenage Image? Young mothers are most often single.  They have most often experimented with sex as a teenager, as many teenagers do, and they have fallen pregnant.  They may have been young when they fell pregnant, but they made a decision to have a child and bring up a child and most often they do this recognizing that they will have to commit 20 years of their life to the task.  They also know that there is little in the way of teenage mothers help, so they are taking on a big task These teenage mothers help destroy the stereotype of selfishness and laziness.  While their friends are out there partying, many of these girls forego this and make a commitment to put their child first. On occasions they may get their mom to mind the child and they can still go out, but often they ignore the peer pressure and put their child first.  For a young mother this is hard, and when they decide to commit to their child, they are required to grow up awfully fast.
