    People who equate being a young mum with harbouring sluttish tendencies are ill-informed and too quick to judge. I know a girl who is extremely beautiful and talented-musically, sport-wise and academically and was destined for Oxford (keeping up the family tradition) but is now at home looking after her son, who she gave birth to last year, at 15 years age. Once at school, she threw some salt on her best friend for a joke, and automatically everyone told her to ''grow up'' in time for the birth and criticised her for being too childish as a now mum-to-be. Consequently she rushed off to the school toilets and tried to commit suicide by overdosing. People should really think twice before making hurtful comments, especially if person in question decides to keep the baby. Being too honest about your pessimitic feelings will hurt the person- instead, the best thing to do is offer your practical support but don't comment on what can't be changed.
    Anyhow I'm happy to see that this girl hasn't hidden away from the world destined to be a humble, unambitious person for life, rather she takes her baby boy everywhere she goes and you can tell by the way she carries herself that she's not going to let the words of others affect her. It must be extremely difficult for young mums-I know most people would find it impossible to cope, me personally because I tend to be quite selfish. I bet it is really hard for you Louisa but stick it out, your life at the moment may not revolve around late-night clubbing and alcohol-fuelled one nighters but I'm guessing nothing could really come close to the happiness you get from being with and caring for your baby. Good luck with your course, and take care. xxx.

    Wow.

    I'm humbled - you've achieved so much where others would simply have given up. Your son is very lucky to have such a wonderful mother - best of luck at Bristol!
