I am writing a paper for my senior class, and I have experience with taking care of children. I have raised my two younger siblings for the past three years. I have dealt with a colic child to anything you can think of. Being only in my senior year of high school and not being able to actually be a "teenager," my opinion on academic achievement has changed. I feel like with my experience and opportunity that I feel like parenting classes should be mandatory. I see all these young girls becoming pregnant and it makes me so sad. Not only because they now have to grow up and become mothers, but they don't have the experience of being mothers or dealing with children. Any thoughts? Any articles or bits of information that could help me please? I could go on for hours about this topic, but it can't be biased.
