Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Teen Pregnancy

 Teen pregnancy has a big part in my life because at the age of 16 my sister had her first baby she struggle a lot with my mom they would always get in an argument because og the pregnancy . Till she decided that she neede to move with her boyfriend , she still stuggle with money and then , at the age of 17 she got pregnant with another baby boy . She decided to move back in with my mom , and so she did i still see her stuggle with back pains , or not enough sleep , and with education she wants to study still , but she deosnt have the time . I thi nk this changed everybodys life because no one expected this from her .  I would tell other girls just to wait till they get older right know is not the time to be thinking about having sex or geting pregnant . My sister had to grow up fast and live all of her friend behind because she has to raise 2 kids . My mom got pregnant at the age of 17 she had to leave her family behind to come to the united states to give us a better future . She's a single mom and stuggles with money . If she would of stayed in school she wouldnt have struggled so much . She tries to be strong for us , but i know she just want to break down n tears sometimes . I appreciate everything she has done for me , but sometimes i wonder what if , Waht if she had never met my dad , what if she had stayed in school . She wouldnt stuggle so much with money . And i say the same thing about  my sister .
