Pregnancy occurs naturally throughout life. It is unfortunate that it occurs so often at young ages. Teenage parenting is a huge but common struggle amongst young adults. This occurs very so often in urban communities. From what I’ve seen, it is not at all easy. It is rare in my community, that young moms receive much help and support with their children. Majority of the help offered to these young women are limited to government assisted programs. Many times the young girl is impregnated and by the time of birth, the father is nowhere around.More and more young children are being raised my young mothers and the father is absent. I’ve always wished that an end could be put to this and that we as a community could help.There are many birth control and abortion options but apparently those options fail in these cases. I feel that we as a community should do more to help our young women with these struggles. It hurts me to see this in my every day life. I believe that one day we as a community will all help each other throughout our struggles as opposed to tearing each other down. It also hurts me to see my community rapidly fall apart. I strongly believe that one way to help prevent the struggle of becoming a teenage mother, we can show the effect of hardships to our young ladies. Hopefully this will empower a change in this aspect of our community.
