I tried going to alternative school while working and pregnant but that did not last but a semester either. I was to worried about what my child’s father was doing that I also quit going to that school. Six months after having my first child I ended up pregnant with my second one. I knew from then that I had no chance of ever going back. So I got married at 17 and started just playing the house wife and mom, till it came to me having to find a job.

I have seen this with my own father, who was devastated when my mother moved away with us. We were more than eight hundred miles apart, and he was unable to see my younger sister and me for almost a year. Of course, then it was just presumed that children belonged with the mother. However, even in these so called enlightened times, many
My parents divorced halfway through my ninth grade year in high school. I was devastated when I heard the news. My mother tried everything she could to continue the lifestyle we lived but even with working two jobs she was barely able to pay the bills and put food
Adam grew up in a low-income household, with just his mother because his father left when Adam was a young boy, never coming back or sending money for support. Then came the time for Adam to make his decision to either skip college to go straight to the NBA, or to attend college and get his degree while being a college star for four years. The problem was, Adam was having a hard time deciding which to choose as both have their pros and cons. Adam’s mother was sick, cannot work and can’t afford to support her and Adam for much longer. If Adam goes pro, he can earn money right away to help his mother and possibly be very successful in the NBA.
I was the first born and was the only child till I was six, but during those six years I witness my mother getting hit by my father and him being drunk every day and never home. I was scared and didn’t know if this was okay and normal for my parents but what I did know is whenever it happened I was hiding and covering my ears. My dad would go on drinking binges for days with his cousins and would never be home, my mom would worry and leave me to go find him, usually he was at a bar or at his cousins house and she would bring him home. That’s when things would get throw, slaps would be heard, cries as well, and another beer opening. It got worse and not only was he hitting my mom but now me as well.
Her husband left early on in Emily’s life and her mother was forced to leave her with friends or send her to day care. “…and I did not know then what I know now- the fatigue of the long day, and the lacerations of group life in the kinds of nurseries that are only parking places for children” (Olsen 707). Emily got nowhere near the amount of attention she needed. Maggie, on the other hand, was always with her mother. Maggie’s mother was also older and better suited to be a mother because she was older and more experienced however, Maggie’s father also left the family.
We’ve been dating for almost a month, not a long time but I needed a place to live. Since my mom kicked me out the house a month ago. She didn’t like the fact her daughter was 19-year-old and a college dropout. I’m a failure in her eyes, but Blake thinks I’m one in a million. I remember the day we met, like it was yesterday.
