Re: Can teenagers be good parents?

Hi, would I raise the baby or put him on adoption? Everyone’s situation is different, assessing your situation will help you decide whether an adoption plan is best for you and your child. If raising a child as a single parent is financially hard, the government is offering any kind of help for mothers and children. Having family or friends who provide practical support can make being a young parent a bit easier.
What would I do if my teenage child found themselves in such a situation?
I found this article that says, as a parent of teen having a baby, recognize your feelings and work through them so that you can accept and support your teen. Being angry and disappointed are common. You might have a strong flood of emotions to deal with, especially at first. But the reality of upcoming baby means that you will have to get beyond your initial feelings for the sake of your teen and his child.
Thank you for sharing.

Re: Can teenagers be good parents?

Considering that people married and became parents as teens for most of human history, they can be good parents.

Re: Can teenagers be good parents?

My initial view for this question will be NO.

Teens cannot make good parents and the kids grow up to be damaged or are abandoned when they are born.

But things will be different if there's proper financial backing and emotional support from the families. Teenage pregnancy has become quite common in the US and not everyone is fortunate to get good families.
