I'm a young mom, I had my daughter at 16, I'm turning 19. She will be 2. I had a lot of problems during my pregnancy. When I had her, the dr. told me that if I had been older, I would not of had a vaginal birth because of her size and my body. I had enlarged veins on my placenta, low fluid, Rh negative, diabetic, I had a lot of problems. I don't know how I would off faced them especially if I wasn't young and very string minded. On the other hand, a lot of young moms still want to go out, hang out with friends, have sleepovers, stay up all night and then try to sleep in. They don't grasp the concept that they are a mother first and a friend last. They do not have their child as a priority. I on the other hand, knew my daughter was to come first. Even though I was young, I took on the responsibility and raised her.
