I'm a 17 year old mom. I got pregnant with my son at 15, and had him at 16. I consider myself a great mom. I do everything for him and he's my life. But every since I had him I've been judged and ridiculed by people, including my own family. They've told me that I should have put my son up for adoption, but he has changed my life in so many ways. I just don't understand WHY teen moms get so much hate! Especially when we do everything we can to take care of our kid! I get called a child and etc. But a ''child'' doesn't go to work everyday to support themselves and their kid, pay rent, buy gas, and take care of themselves completely. I do. I've been taking care of myself since I was 13. I've done just fine. I just wish people would understand that teens are capable of being great moms and supporting their kid. There are 20/30 something year old's that don't take care of their kids. Why are ''teen mom's'' bashed the most? You can be 14, 15, 16, 17 and be a better mom than any adult!
