How many of you are single teen mothers? And why is the father not in your childs life? I'm a single mother, and I am 19 years old. The father of my child is 17 and left me for a 26 year old woman and her two children. He was with her throughout my pregnancy and the first month of my daughters life. He isn't with her now, and still doesn't come around. "He doesn't want to be tied down". He keeps saying he wants to be a good father and wants to help take care of her, yet has done nothing. He rarely answers my calls or returns my text messages and has only seen her about 4 times since her birth.
