Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

If you are referring to Yuri_lesbo, we all have her best interests at heart when we tell her to wait. What it comes down to is economics. How can she afford a baby? It is irresponsible to tell a 16-year-old who is now about to be kicked out of her mother's house that she should go ahead and get pregnant. It wouldn't kill her to wait a few years until her life is more stable. Perhaps the first step is moving out of her mother's house, getting a place of her own and seeing if she can support herself. If she can and has some money to spare, then maybe that would be a good time for a baby if she chooses. Lets not create another welfare mother reliant on a broken system.
I agree with Kimmieapples. Why rush into something you can't afford. I hate paying for other people to get assistance especially after I got laid off from my job. I can't get assistance, why should the underage get assistance when they don't have to pay in?
Are you talking to someone specific?
