16 year old mom question?
I take care of my child like I'm supposed to , she doesn't leave my side, ever. The only time she does, is when my family takes her without my permission. I'm going to spend the night at a friends house, who is only in Arizona to visit for a few days, and my mom said I can't bring my daughter. I'm SURE there's some law against this, but I don't know what. Can someone tell me a way that I can tell her that since Leigha is in my custody, and I'm her mom I can take her with me? I've refused to let my daughter stay in their care after I woke up one morning when they had taken her and found they left her on their bed when she was sleeping and she fell onto a tile floor, she's only 6 months old. I'm spending the night ONE night. The age doesn't make a mother, the actions do,case anyone wants to rag on the fact I'm 16. Yes, I got pregnant at a young age but I'm doing everything I can to take care of her the way she should be.

Not exactly if there's a law regarding that since you are a minor yourself. I'm not sure actually. It'd be best to call your local police department (not 911, but their direct number lol) or stop by and speak with someone about that. They should definitely be able to give you a clear answer if you truly do not want... More

YOUR child, YOUR decision. Every decision is YOURS when it comes to your baby. Tell your mum that you appreciate her input but you'll do what you want.

sweetie she is YOUR child, your mom is prob. just trying to take control of your child because your still a child yourself and she is simply trying to guide you to make right decisions.
