While in most cases teen girls are ill prepared to be parents, age is not always a determining factor in maturity level. Even though the majority of young adults are not ready to be parents, there are exceptions.
Some girls who find themselves pregnant early on meet the challenge and prove to be adequate mothers. On the opposite end of the scope, there are adult women who raise children and are still childish and irresponsible.
Overall, teen pregnancy is a common and largely preventable issue. From being a teen mother to knowing someone who is or will be, the subject is prevalent in our daily lives. As whenever something monumental like a child comes into a woman or man's world, their lives will definitely never be the same.
In the end, preventing teen pregnancy starts in the home. Pregnancy is not a light matter and should be taken very seriously for the sake of both the parents and more importantly, the child.
