So I guess I’m on a rant type of thing lol. Anyway let’s get to the real..
I want to talk (type) about young parents, by young I mean teenage parents. I want to talk specifically about a few cases I have experienced.
Now this is not meant to put anyone out there but just to get my point across.
My cousin who is 16 & still in high school had a child about a year ago with a girl who was currently a senior in high school. Then not too much later he had another baby by another young girl in high school. Do we see a problem? I THINK SO!!!
Then his brother who is 18 & a senior in high school just recently had a baby.
Now there has to be a stop to this. Don’t get me wrong the birth of a child/parenthood is a beautiful thing but when your so young it’s kind of bitter sweet. I mean my cousin’s barely have a education, job, and are in no way serious about their relationships. I mean come on even those who are high school sweethearts weren’t mature enough in high school to seriously say their relationship was serious enough that they just knew they were ready to make a family in high school. I mean it can be done but it’s not likely. I don’t think anyone is mature enough to be a good parent. There is no age limit but I can’t see someone who barely knows themselves being able to shape someone else’s life.
And what if this pattern occurs again. What if my cousins are not a hard on their children as they should be, seeing as though they are still teenagers. Then their children grow up to do the same thing, now we have a unwanted pattern. I have seen it happen too many times before. It’s just not a good look, honestly.
Now I don’t look down on my cousin’s but I do think the madness needs to stop.
It is so important to practice abstinence. I know that sounds lame but it will save you a lot of trouble.
If you didn’t know I am telling you now that I am a Christian & I do not believe in sex before marriage.
I am the product of sex before marriage & I was almost aborted.
It hurts to know that I wasn’t going to be here & I don’t take it lightly. I don’t ever want to put my self in that situation.
Also my parents are now divorced. Now I’m not saying that if they were married before children that they would have lasted but I think they would have had a better chance.
I want to give my future children the best life possible & the way to do that is God’s way.
So the moral of this post is to practice abstinence because teenage pregnancy is way too high.
There was a quote I ran across on twitter that I totally agree with…
"Too many funerals, not enough graduations, too many baby showers, not enough weddings."
We must do better!!!!
Let me know what you guys think
