No It’s just that my parents have said that if I got pregnant at any age like 16-17 they wouldn’t allow me to live with them and so I thought. Why can’t y’all help me with the thought because I don’t think it’s that bad.

That’s a little cruel from your own parents.
I don’t think it’s bad, I mean, it happens. Maybe they’re only saying this is a deterrent to stop from having unsafe sex? I know this is what some parents do. And maybe if it were to happen then they’d think differently.

I cant comment in terms of pregnancy but i know that being a teen parent does not automatically make you a bad parent.

My mum was a teen mum and we were okay. It wasn’t easy but it wasnt awful

I completely agree with you there.
My mum pretty much was. She was 19 while pregnant with me and only had been 20 for a month when I was born. So there was still a massive struggle starting university pregnant. My hero she is.

Then there’s my partner’s mum who was about 21 when she had him, but had his older sisters (twins) at 17/18. Luckily, the father of them all was very supportive (still is) and as was their families. Although, there is still hardship having kids young.

My mum was 16-17 when she had her eldest. It definitely was rough to start with. My mum has been a carer for most of her career
