Research shows 12.5 percent out of 100 teenage girls get pregnant at the age of 14 through 17. At a young age taking advantage of trying to live on their own and making their own decisions and one outcome of the whole thing teen pregnancy. I strongly disagree on having sex before marriage and the later outcomes of it.” Life outcomes” of children’s teenage mothers are a social issue and also lower educational levels, and higher rates of poverty. Not having self-control is what some teens go through. Maybe if their parents gave them a little attention and taught them a word called “respect” therefore they would never raise the name of teenage pregnancy. Some teens go through nutritional deficiencies by losing weight, their eating habits, dieting, snacking, skipping meals, and fast food. Holding a child in their hand while walking around with friends is losing their “image” for teen male fathers is what is common now days. Because of that outcome teen mothers aren’t able to nurture their child and having responsibility. Taking care of a child doesn’t actually only have to be one parent nurturing it the mother needs help and support along side. Having patience is what kills teens not waiting and being pretty quick at the whole thing. Self-control is all you need to not have sex before marriage.
