I am not THAT old I am in my early 30's and when I was in high school we had a couple girls who got pregnant. I didn't know anyone who had a baby while in high school most had them after we graduated. I grew up in St. Louis in a high middle class area, I am saying this because INCOME does make a difference. Statistics show that in poorer income areas it is more likely to have more teen pregnancies.
I doubt this same conversation is being held in north Fulton or even east Cobb, but I really want to know why. Why do kids think it will make them better to have kids. Most will never graduate high school MOST will not go to college, MOST will not marry the babies daddy and if they do they will end up divorced. I am so glad I was smart enough to wait until I was older, and I was smart enough to used protection. I plan on teaching my daughter that there is much more to life than just having a baby. That is what my mom taught me and I waited a long time to have my baby just like my mom waited to have me. I think we do as our parents. I mean come on how many teen moms do you see who were children of teen moms?
