Babies and Students

One of my 10th grade students brought her 14 month old in to school today, (after class). He is 14 months old. He is adorable.

I found out one of my OTHER students, a male, his "ex" girlfriend gave birth a month ago. He had a picture on his cell phone. She is adorable. I think he's a Junior.

I...sort of am speechless. SHE has it together, is going to school, working, I think living at home.

He, I think, is joining the services or something.

I...just have no words.

Oh my. 10th grade?

Can my kids stay 8, 5, and 3?


It's amazing what babies having babies are doing. Disheartening, huh?

This is so sad ! This usually means that the grandparents end up paying for and raising another family about the time they had hoped to retire and take life easier . Children SHOULD NOT be having children ! Doris
