“Graduating high school in the top ten of my class”

June 16th, 2015

I, myself, as well as many others my age have many plans for the future and are still preparing for these intensions. My aspirations for the future are very important to me and I am constantly making decisions every day that will affect them. One of my main goals that I am most focused on right now is graduating high school in the top ten of my class. I try to put a lot of effort into my school work to achieve these goals. Having a child right now would greatly affect all of these goals and plans for my future. I do not think I am fit to be a mother in this time of my life. If I had a baby right now, I would not be able to be in as many extracurricular activities as I am in right now. I would also have to focus less on school and focus more on caring for my child. Colleges may not want me anymore and I probably wouldn’t be able to afford, money-wise and time-wise, to attend college. The type of job I would get would be very different if I were to have a child. Relationships and friendships would also be greatly impacted. Making a mistake in high school like having a child would definitely change my life and my plans for the future. –Teen, age 16
