I have a 4 year old step son and a 21 month old daughter. I was a teen mum, but 21 now. I class myself as a good mother to my kids, I do everything for them and hardly ever go out. I never drink, I'm over that lol I'm such a nana. I'm sure most other mums on this forum are much the same, from what i have read u are all fantastic young mothers who have stepped up and taken on the responsibility of parenthood. Every young mum i know is amazing.
So why is there such a strong stereotype that young parents are bad parents? are the majority of teen parents actually useless mothers? I just want to try to understand this stereotype because the way i see it there is not alot of evidence behind it!
