Kids Having Kids

I could complain about this topic all day long. Young parents! And I mean YOUNG parents.
I’m a good parent. I was 29 when my daughter was born; I was ready for children and could provide for my family. But as we all know, that’s not always the case. For example, have you been to your local mall lately? It’s always entertaining to walk around ours and see all the high school girls who have babies. But maybe I shouldn’t say it’s entertaining. OK, how about this – it’s downright ridiculous. And more often than not, when I see this, I hold the parents accountable.
As many of you know, multiple times on here, I’ve said that it’s a shame because some kids truly never have a chance – and I mean that referring to their parents. Now before you go off on me, I don’t want to get in to a debate about individual situations or someone that messed up and ended up having a baby way too early. I’m more so referring to the unfortunate nature of our society today – one in which sex is expected in relationships, frowned upon if it doesn’t happen and where kids are either not educated on safe sex or too stupid to practice it. Let’s not forget Jamie Lynn Spears famously getting pregnant at age 16…
The reason I am riled up about this today is because of a conversation I heard on the radio yesterday. One of my favorite radio personalities, Mike Trivisonno, mentioned the story (if I can find the actual news link, I will – but I haven’t been able to yet). The story was about a 16-year old girl who has two children – an 11-month old and a four-week old. Trivisonno was joking about parents possibly giving their daughters birth control pills without their knowledge. But all joking aside, this young girl’s sad example is the epitome of what I’m talking about.
When I was young, my sister’s friend got pregnant in high school. That girl’s two sisters (one of which was 15) thought it was “cool” to be pregnant, so they went out and got pregnant too. And all three of them had kids within six months of each other.
What is our society facing? The answer – true social decline… You don’t talk face-to-face, because texting is better. And you have kids, because that’s the answer to all of your problems!
