I'm not a teen mom but why do people give teen moms so much shit? A lot of teens end up being better parents than some adults. It does not stop then from reaching their dreams. It can actually influence them to make better choices in life.. Especially for 18 year olds. They're 18, which is considered an adult, so why are they a "teen mom" and get so much shit? I don't care that "teen" is in "eighteen". They're an adult and can make their own decisions.. So to any teen moms or teens ttc, do NOT let anybody tell you what to do! It's your life, not theirs! Rant over.
