Causes of Baby Dumping
One of the causes of baby dumping is teenagers are lack of sex education. Most of the parents failed to inject the knowledge of sex into the mind of their children when their children were small. They feel shy or uncomfortable when their children ask them about sex. Besides that, parents always assume that their children will know everything naturally when they become adult. They are giving less response to those questions and less clear explanation to their children. Parents are less giving a clear view about sex and always claim that their children are too small to know about sex. Most of the schools are facing the same problems. They do not have sex education as a compulsory teaching subject in school. Teachers are also refused to give information of sex to their students because they think that giving sex education to students is not part of their jobs and most of them are having the same thinking as parents.

Also, they are lack of parenting skills. They failed to become a good parent. They do not know the correct way to feed the baby, bath the baby, or teach the baby. Therefore, teenagers failed to grow their baby with their own capability. Furthermore, high school students are too immature to fully understand the effects of free sex could have on their lives.
