It's not easy being a single mom. As a single parent, you have to take on double the parenting duty. Other issues can make this even more complex. For example, some young moms write about what to do if my boyfriend is an alcoholic. Please share your experience and wisdom. As you will see, these problems require a great support system, time management skills and top-notch parenting techniques. If you have tips to share with other single moms or just want to help other single mothers and single parents out there, then tell us your story.
THIS IS FOR GLORIA AND ANY OTHER PRE-MOMS!
It's okay. Take a deep breath. You're bringing a beautiful person into this world, who has a chance of their own. Don't get abortion, you'll be scarred for life knowing you killed your own baby. If you don't know a way to tell your parents, here's one: Tell them calmly. Say you are ready to take full responsibilty and please ask them for forgiveness. Say you have learned your lesson, but you are ready to bring a child into this world, but you can't without their full support. If they kick you out, then they're not good supporters. Find someone who is. BUt NEVER give up education. It's so important. Get all your schoolwork one week at a time and do it at home. Then, after your babby is born, focus on getting early admittance to colleges and getting your diplomas and scholorships. Education is so important. Don't worry, it'll be okay. xoxo,

Unexpected PregnancyI'm not truly single. I have been with my boyfriend for a little over two years now. We started dating when we were both 15 and sophmores in high school. Only a little over 3 months ago we found out that I was pregnant.
By this time, my boyfriend had moved in with me and things were going very good. After I took FOUR pregnancy tests (because we were both in such disbelief) we scheduled an appointment with my family doctor. On the way there, we talked about the different "options" we had...basically keep or don't keep. Being so young, it was scary to think that all of our plans could be ruined by this.
After my doctor confirmed our fears, somthing changed. When we got outside to the car, me and my partner no longer had any thoughts in our mind about getting rid of the baby.
We just had our first ultrasound last week and found out our baby weighs a little over 4 ounces. Seeing it was a miracle...at every check up we get to hear it's hearbeat and each time we get overjoyed.
In a couple months, I will be heading to a university to get my masters in secondary education. I'm happy to say things are going great and I have plenty of support from my family and the man I love!
To everyone in a similar situation (teen pregnancy), know there is hope and plenty of support out there for you (whether or whether not it comes from family). Stay strong and follow your heart!
