im so jealous of all you adult MNers

being a teen mum SUCKS. yes i've heard on condoms and yes they sometimes split.

nobody treats you like a mum if your a teenager they treat you like a silly little kid.

i am a good mum! dp is a good dad! why does it matter that im 15! ds gets just as good a childhood as you do and i'm still a straight A/B student, and dp is getting a degree

i am not scrounging money off you via benefits, i dont live in a council house, my parents do not raise my little boy

SO LEAVE US ALONE

sorry i've seen one to many documenteries about crappy teenage parents. its not an excuse to be a bad parent if your under 18!!

ive changed my name to avoid the backlash of this...

Personally, I'd not name change.

You should hold your head high and be proud!

And don't worry, I got treated like a silly little girl by quite a few people when i had my DD, and I was 21. Some people are just bloody rude.

I hope that you are not being angry here because of somethign you've read here. I think most mnetters would be supportive and wnat to help when you asked etc, just as they would if a mum in their 30s posted.

My take on being a mum at 15 is...it must be tough. Hard enough doing all the stuff we mums have to do without adding in schoolwork, missing out on what your mates are up to and a feeling of being judged by other people. But some of the young mums I have met while teaching teens have been some of the BEST mums I have known.; So I judge no one.

Why should you namechange?

Stay proud and enjoy your baby. I think you should post away under your usual name. Well done you on continuing with your (excellent) studies.

Well my Mum was a teenage Mum and imo she is the best Mum in the world smile! I had my first ds at 30 and found it such a struggle so I admire anyone who can go through it all at such a young age.
Rise above it and don't let ignorant narrow minded people get you down.
