Section 1: What I know, Assume, or Imagine
I became interested in Teen Pregnancy because there are a lot of things I really want to know and throughout the years, our population of teens getting pregnant has increased. What I know about my topic is that teens now a days are getting into serious types of relationships such as being sexually active with their partner. Many guys also force some girls to have sex with them or try to manipulate with their form of sweet talking. That’s how it all starts, a guy tries to say the cutest things to make the girl fall in love and give them their virginity. Some teenagers think that just because they think that they are older means that it is okay to have sexual activities but in reality, they have no idea what they are capable of doing and how they’re putting their lives at risk. Since there are plenty of teenage girls that are easily manipulated by a guy, they are not as smart as they say they are. I assume that the whole process of having sex begins by having a boyfriend at a young age and making out with them. Sex can lead up to many problems because when you are in the mood, things could go wrong; such as forgetting to put a condom on. There are many things that can cause a girl to get pregnant. Before a guy is ready to ejaculate, they sometimes pre-cum and sometimes they can’t feel when that happens which can lead to putting the girl at a higher risk of being pregnant. Young teens that get pregnant have to go through so much because of one little mistake that they did. Being a teenager mother is never easy because now not only do you have to take care of yourself but you also have to take care of your child. Another thing about teen mothers is that by having a big responsibility on them can lead to teens to drop out from being so stressed out.
I imagine that sometimes getting pregnant doesn’t always mean that your having intercourse with your exact partner, but someone could have raped you. A lot of reasons why teen pregnancy occurs is because of peer pressure. Peer pressure could lead up to having unwanted pregnancies. Sometimes seeing your own friends getting pregnant can automatically mean its okay to have sex but its not. One of the worst parts of being a teen mother could be because you have nobody helping to support the child. You would think that just because your pregnant your boyfriend would stay and help but that usually never happens. Guys are only interested at getting one thing at a certain age and that’s just to get into a girls pants. Having to carry a baby in your stomach for 9 months with no help whatsoever can be one of the worst feelings ever during your pregnancy. Using protection is 10x better than being a single parent, dropping out of school, or losing everyone you know just by making one big mistake in your life because you thought you could handle being a teen parent when you really can’t. Becoming a mother at a young age is very difficult, especially when there is no help involved whatsoever. You now need to grow up, save money to buy your child his or her supplies. It inspires me how some teen parents are capable of taking care of their child alone and do whatever it takes to succeed for their baby. Maybe one day when the time is right for me, ill be able to put in effort to raise my child and take responsibilities.
Section 2: The Search
As I was researching my topic about Teen Pregnancy, I realized that there are many teenage students in my high school campus that have had or are having a baby are managed to stay in school while some other teen mothers decide to drop out of school or think about putting their child up for adoption. Being a teen mom is general is never easy, especially when still in high school. It takes a lot of work and courage to take care of a newborn. One has many more responsibilities due to the fact that one is no longer just taking care of themselves but of two lives. There are many forms of protecting...
