how old was the mother? if she is a teenager,then it probably down to her lack of paranting,and probably not practised in the family.
if this is the case,it sickens me,some of todays teenagers have no parenting skills what so ever and never think of this before they get pregnant.
Questions that they should ask themselfs before they even think of starting a family.
Q1, whats in volved in being a mum for the first time?
,would i cope.
will my parents help and stand by me?
,my parents didnt look after me well,how would i know if i can be a good mother?
will by boyfriend stand by me all the way.
things like this,most of the time are not asked,or not put into consideration which leads to this sort of thing happening to young parents who dont have the experts advise to hand,or they think they have it down to a T,but most of the time they dont,hence the reason why this sort of thing happends.
thats my oppinion, if anyone wants to correct me on any of this feel free.
