so i heard this show on NPR that talks about a reality show (i am not sure about which one it is).
and of course i immediately react.
because just so you know my whole philosophy is that organisations really only care about 'workforce' not the individual themselves.
however this is not my reality. or my experience.
many in my family were teenage moms and they regret nothing. unplanned babies.
yes life is/was hard. now they are well settled. yes they didnt go to college but they hold good jobs and are satisfied with their life.
i hate this focus on omg teenage preg is bad.
i am in school myself and i see returning students who were teenage moms not regreting their life.
yes its hard. but in many cases they also get a lot of help from family.
i am talking about the US. i know it can be a little different elsewhere.
it makes me angry that the choices for teenage moms are abortion or adoption. keeping the baby is not a choice because the baby ruins your life.
looking at the economy and seeing so many highly educated people (from BA to higher) struggling ... does it really make that big an impact on society.
so am i completely screwed up in my thinking?
what do you think about this topic.
