There are a lot of stereotypes about teenage mothers, which may be the reason why shows that allow us access into the lives of young parents, like Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, do so well.
For women who decide to have children once they settle down, it's hard to imagine having a child while still figuring out how the world works. The question we ask is this: If we don't have this knowledge and time to teach our children, how can we ensure their success?
Common teen mom stereotypes include young girls having to raise their children single-handedly, they'll never amount to anything and neither will their children, and that they're too young to care for their babies.
Most of the time, teenage girls don't choose to get pregnant, but if they do, some are afraid to get an abortion.
We all hope these stereotypes are not true and that teen moms can be as nurturing for their baby as an adult mother, but time and time again there have been instances where they've fit perfectly in those stereotypes.
One teen mom from Russia perfectly fits those stereotypes, and the worst part is that she doesn't even regret it...
