Why does everyone associate bad parents with teen parents?

If you are a teen who is 18 years old, living on your own and providing for yourself, then why are you always going to be seen as an unfit parent by those adults who talk down to you. A woman told me i had no business keeping my son that i am pregnant with, simply because of my age (which is 18) but she hasn't considered that i have a job & home of my own. w*f? No one has a right to judge you for your mistakes, because everyone has made mistakes, but because one parent is older, it makes them more fit no matter what their financial situation is? thats unfair. what do you think?
