7 Problems Teen Moms Face ...


Becoming a mother is no easy task, especially if you are in your teen years.

This is a time when most things come easy, but having a child is a whole new ballgame.

Here are 7 problems teen moms face.

Some of these problems are inevitable and others can be overcome with help of friends and family.

There are a few teens that are fortunate enough to have little to no difficulties at all, but these individuals are rare.

7. Social Difficulties

This is a hard problem to face when the teen mom used to be an avid party girl.

A loud and potentially wild party filled with teenagers is no place for a baby to be, which often puts a damper on the party scene.

Another aspect of the type of social difficulty that can arise is trying to continue to do spur of the moment things that most teenagers get to do.

Now that there is another human being to take into consideration it’s a bit more difficult to be spontaneous.

6. Physical Stress

A woman’s body is still growing when she is in her teens;

sometimes all the way up until the age of 21.

Carrying a child puts a lot of physical strain on a woman’s body.

This can be even more detrimental for a teenage girl, due to her physical maturity level.

Many teens are still trying to get a handle on their own personal issues at hand, let alone dealing with hormonal changes and major physical alterations taking place.

5. Looked down upon by Adults

Many adults tend to think teenage girls are stupid for getting pregnant.

I was 19 when I had my son, but it was still young enough that I had many adults ask my why on earth I’d want to be pregnant at such a young age.

They thought I was flushing my future down the toilet.

They changed their tune after I put myself through college while home-schooling my son as well.
