Been staring at my listed topics for more than an hour now and I just could not think of the right words to make even a single sentence for each topics. Earlier I was planning to just draft an article about how my day went but I realized that it was just recently when I published about my Woozy Wednesday.

Well my Saturday was somehow the same to what happened that day. I can say that my migraine was very much present this week. Just like yesterday, the pain was still on the right side. I did not hold my phone throughout the day and decided to watch some movies. I have missed you, Netflix. I watched Aiplane Mode, Kissing Booth 3 and The Thieves. Then I took a photo from one of the scenes on Kissing Booth because I wanted it to be my lead image since I was planning to have a daily blog until I thought of something a little interesting to talk about.

Has anyone seen the Kissing Booth? While I was watching it I remembered when I was in high school when my friends and I went to the mall to watch a movie then we saw our batchmate inside the movie house who was lip and tongue locking her boyfriend. Maybe you are wondering what is the connection of the movie with our batchmate. The female lead character was still in high school when she had a boyfriend and they had a lot of kissing scenes from the trilogy. During the time that we saw our batchmate, I even commented to my friends that I could not wait to have a boyfriend so I can also do something like that. LOL. One of my friends who was seated next to me laughed about it and told me that my reasoning was to shallow. I forgot what movie we watched that time because I was more into watching our batchmate during that time. LOL. They actually needed a room for their actions. When it was time to leave the movie house, it was only then that our batchmate saw us and her boyfriend's lips were so red due to all the kissing. LOL. I bet it was too awkward for her to see all of us leave the movie house.

Going back to what I have said, yes it was one of the reasons why I wanted to have a boyfriend right then and there. LOL. Sadly, no boyfriends, flings or flirtationship not until I started working. Of course I was able to do what my batchmate was doing before. LOL. But when do you think is it ok to be in a relationship?

Nowadays, it seems that it is ok to be in a relationship and do a lot of lip and tongue locking in movies and/or drama series when you are below 18 years old. There was even a scene on Kissing Booth 3 that the female lead was passionately kissing his boyfriend who was half naked on top of her while they were on a bed with lights close. We can all speculate on what happens next but because of those scenes, people would think that it is ok to do it.

I know that we are now at that age when things are not how it was during the early 50s. Who should we blame for that? Are the parents to be blamed for not guiding their children properly? Should we blame the movies that we watch? Should we blame the technology? Should we blame our curiousity? Should we blame our lack of knowledge when it comes to s3x education? Do you think teen pregnancy should be talked about in schools?

I do have friends who also had teen pregnancies. They were actually the youngest in our group and they gave birth when they were 17 and 18. It was my first time to have interviewed someone on how it felt to give birth through normal delivery. We were friends so she was very detailed about everything even how she was being hysterical inside the delivery room because the father of the child was there inside. They actually have a love-hate relationship hence the emotions. Just like most teen pregnancies, my friends ended up raising their child alone.

I know that it really does happen that a child will be raised by a single parent whether it was conceived during his/her teenage years or not. However, I think majority of it was because of teenage pregnancies. Though there were also a few happy ending stories with couples that had started a family at an early age.

I think if I got pregnant when I was a teenager, my parents would have disowned me. Or maybe my parents would have forced me to marry the person who got me pregnant. Or maybe I would have run away from home if I found out that I was pregnant. Seems like some scenarios from a drama right? Those can actually happen in real life and there are also some heartless people who would think of abortion as an option. NO! NO! NO! It should never nor will it ever be an option.

We have this just outside our church. I just blurred out the name of our parish.

What is your take about teenage pregnancy? Those are just some of my insights with regards to the topic. I cannot elaborate any further as I have never experienced it nor have I experienced being pregnant. I just based mine from the people that I know. Just know that if ever you plan on doing something with your loved one, be prepared for the consequences of your actions. Also it would be much better if the 2 of you would do it after marriage.

Honestly, I don't think teenagers' bodies are prepared for bearing a child. Considering the mental health as well. It comes with a lot of responsibilities. But tbh, you can't blame the teenager alone. The environment where she is, the family she's been with, the peers, there's a lot to consider. Even if we educate them and guide them, there will be a chance that they will get lost. In the end, it is their decision. What we can do is just pray for them.

I also my pregnancy at the age of 17 and I delivered my baby boy at the age of 18. Though you're about the fact that most family disowns their children having teenage pregnancies. I was lucky enough that my family didn't do that to me. And also to my partner, I was lucky because of him too. I met a responsible man who took care of us. He dropped out of senior high school and is still working to provide for us. Though I'm not saying that my early pregnancy was a good thing. I highly advice teenagers to wait till they're physically, emotionally, mentally and financially ready before they even think about pregnancy.

Narinig ko na yang kissing both kaso diko pinanood parang diko bet. Abt teenage pregnancy, ahhh dapat kasi talaga ata nay s3x education na tau, or meron naba? Para alam na ng mga bata ang mangyayare if they engage sex at a young age? Okie lang siguro if gagamit sila ng condom basta walang mabubuong bata tas sa huli ipapa abort din. Or if ever man maagang mag buntis, sana lang maging responsible sila.

I got a first boyfriend when I was already 18.. I promised to my mom that I won't get a boyfriend until I hit the legal age so she don't have to worry. But she shouldn't interfere how many boyfriend I will have 😂.

If I get pregnant while I'm still teenager,my mom will still accept me, but my choice not to have one because I can't see my parents crying because of my wrong decision. And besides, I know how hard life it is .

Teenage pregnancy is a no for me. Imagine how many babies don't have parents and just stuck on orphanage because their teenage mom leave them.

I am not pro teenage pregnancy. I think it is a product of improper decision making. Those teenage years were supposedly meant for studies, or family time, I wonder how they insert lovelife and doing those 'you know what' things at a very young age. They must be really good at multitasking LOL. And so brave to do such things out of curiousity alone, without minding the consequences. I could never 😂

But seriously, I wonder whose fault is that? I know someone whose sister is a consistent honor student yet got pregnant at an early age. Or also the fult of the movies and media today, where youth is exposed to more open acts like that, and pronography is also one. I believe that if a child is raised well and not exposed to such things (that naturally makes him/her curious) teenage pregnancy would not happen. It's saddening it's common in our country.

Honestly, if I am a parent of them, I would be disappointed not just with my teenage child, but also with myself. What did I do wrong as a parent? Things like those.

I am not hating on people who had teenage pregnancy, especially if they learned to took responsibility and learned from their experiences. Rather than those who abort children for the sake of having a pure image. They are disgusting.

For me, normalizing teenage pregnancy is still a no. Environment really contributes a lot as to how the teenagers act but, it's still up to them. They already know the result of their action but they keep doing it.

It should not be tolerated. Guardians or parents should take the biggest part in educating the young people about it. Teenagers are not ready for the responsibility they are to face once they enter parenting life or even the pregnancy itself.

pregnancy comes with so many complications both physically and mentally. teenagers are not ready for that just yet.

Most people now know enough about how to get pregnant. Pregnancy that comes at a young age without being ready will bring many problems with it. For this, those who will be together should learn the ways of protection.

I would say, ones environment could be a big factor on teenage pregnancy..

Also, social media is a big factor why nowadays, number of teenage pregnancy has increased significantly..

Parent's proper guidance is critically needed to avoid such incidents..
