Too young to be a Dad!  

Friday, 13 February 2009


All over the news today has been the story about this little boy who has fathered a child. He was just twelve years old when he got his fourteen year old girlfriend pregnant.

Several questions spring to mind, least of all… how! and when and where were theses two small children when it happened?

Of course now it has happened, the question of how on earth they are possibly going to cope with a baby.

In an interview the child (twelve year old boy/father) was asked how he would cope financially…”What’s financially mean?” he asked.

This is truly an example of a broken down society, and a scary future for this baby, I am worried about this on so many levels. And all they are being shown is kindness and publicity and attention, its hardly going to teach them what they are doing is wrong.

Obviously the grandparents are going to be raising this baby, so I guess we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief, because they did such a great job with their own children!

I'm sure you'll be as horrified as I am!

    I think I saw like this before. I'm not sure what's the title. I think it's Too Young To Be A Dad or Dad at __. Well it was his age.

    Both of their families decided to have the baby adopted but in the end he changed his mind and became matured. He wanted to take care of the baby and started studying and working hard for his daughter.

    He named his baby after his mom.

    I heard the interview too, he was immature even for 13, I don't think any amount of study will make him a strong father figure. I'm sure the media will be interviewing the mum in six months and she'll be talking about this baby's absentee father!
