dont listen to what people say. Yes you shouldn't have been having sex and yes you should have been protecting yourself (and maybe you were) but so lots of people make those mistakes but not everyone comes out with a baby, either they are lucky or they get an abortion... More

no people just want to be ignorant. seriously i had my child at 19 and less than a year later my uncles gf had hers and she is 36 and personally i am way better a mother than her. age makes no difference of what type of parent you are.

I don't think just your age alone makes you a bad mom,if YOU (not someone else) give your child what they need(a home, food,ETC) and give them love and attention then I would say you are doing a pretty good job.

no but you should have waited a little longer to have a baby. its better if you are older cuz then you will have a job and can support a family.

irresponsible sex is wrong, but that doesn't mean you are a bad mom

It doesn't make you a bad mom. It depends on how well you are raising your child. You are awfully young to provide proper child care considering you should still be in high school, and being a teenager, are most likely involved in outside activities like clubs and dating and such. I just hope you realize that being... More

Don't think that ever.

As long as you're not sitting around letting these assistance agencies take care of you when you're of age. You would only be a bad mom if you didn't finish school and get more education or start working by setting a poor example for your kid.
Answered By: JC - 1/2/2009
It doesn't make you a bad mom. I think some people have issues with the fact they work so hard to provide for their family and others are handed money for nothing... and that's fair enough. There's also the stigma attached to teenage sex and pregnancy... another reason you may get that impression. It doesn't really... More
Answered By: dreams87 - 1/2/2009
Not at all. It depends on how you raise your child and how you treat your child. Most importantly, this all depends on how you love your child. When you love your child, there are sacrifices that you will make for your child. I don't think age has anything to do with it. It's more about how responsible you are.

It just means your life will be more challenged than an older woman's would be and you have deprived yourself of experiencing many things that teenagers should be enjoying. You need a good support system and help making major decisions about raising your baby. I hope you have that in place. Babies are a blessing... More

Being a teen mom DOES NOT make you a bad mom. My mom was 15 when she had my eldest brother, 18 when she had my next brother, 20 when she had me, and 23 when she had my sister..so yes..4 kids by the time she was 23!! Yes things were hard for a while..we were on welfare and all that for a while cuz we had a dead beat dad... More

not all teen moms are bad moms but alot do have a hard time coping with the responsibility. In my opinion if you love your child do your absolute best to care for your child and do right by that child it doesn't matter how old you are. I was 19 when I had my first, I now have three, and even at 19 it was hard for me to... More

It certainly doesn't make you a bad parent just because you are a little young. I don't know the circumstances under which you got pregnant, but either you made a mistake and had sex or you didn't do it willingly and you ended up pregnant. Either way, you did a wonderful thing by keeping your baby, and even though... More

It doesn't make you a bad mom, but it doesn't make you the best mom either. Your child is put at a disadvantage when you can't provide him with financial stability as well as an emotional one. Prove to those you think see you as unfit by doing all you can to better your situation.
Answered By: elizabeth_ashley44 - 1/2/2009
No. A bad mom is a bad mom. No matter the age. Your age does not determine the care your child receives. Your determination to being the best you can be does. Getting help? Shoot, if you are able, get it, get on your feet, get off the help and get on with a fabulous life with your child. Best of luck!
Answered By: Dana C - 1/2/2009
are people saying your a bad mom for having a baby as a teen or a bad mom because your dependent on federal assistance to take care of you childs basic needs? I mean do you get food stamps too? I'm not trying to be mean but just wondering. I don't think either has anything to do with being a quality parent emotionally... More

Of course it does not make you a bad mom. Stay in school, do it for yourself and your baby.
Answered By: Dayle - 1/2/2009
it shows that you used bad judgment with your body but your parenting skills are not in question. what you do from here on out is the deciding factor for your child. work hard to get your education so you wont have to live off the taxpayers once you turn 18 and show your son what a strong woman can really do.
