I am fed up of the constant looks i get when I walk down the street pushing my daughter's pram. Why do older mums and older people seam to think they are such amazing parents? So what I have tattoo's and piercings hell I even sometimes dye my hair mad colours. My 11 month old is my priority! She is very content everyone says so(including the social worker who came after someone put in a false report!), she is always smiling and talking, she eats well has is a good weight and size for a prem baby infact some people say she's big. So why is it that i am being judged for how I look? The amount of people that ask on a monthly basis if i'm 15-17 is somewhere between 1-4 people, and thats in a month! For starters mind your own business, but i'm 20 years old. And although I'm young i've gone all through school got my GCSE's and got an NVQ in Hairdressing, no I dont currently work and am on benifit, i'm no longer with her father, but he see's her every weekend as he works weekdays and pays for her monthly. So why dose it give others the right to judge?! I haven't seen as many babies being killed or beaten by teenage parents on the news as I have olders. I'm not the only one I know, but I think alot of us "young parents" do a damn sight better job then SOME older parents have ever done, So stop judging us.
