    I just can't stand some of my friends now that I have a baby and I'm in college. I'm just wow..
    I have this friend that I've gone to school with since kindergarden. Well we now go to the same college. I love it here and I honesty think its a great school that does all it can for its students.
    Well this kid has no responsibilities other than college, no children, no bills, no house to keep up with. He spends all his time getting high and chasing after his crazy girlfriend. Needless to say he is failing everything and did the same thing last semester. He tried to tell me today that he is tranfering schools and that this is the worst school ever and that is does nothing to help people.
    It's like me and thousands of other teen mother and other people with children have children, homes, bills, work and tons of other stuff to deal with and we do fine. Its like with all that being said don't tell the college is horrible if I manage a's and b's and you have nothing to really worry about.
    I just get so annoyed at people like that. We get talked about all for being young parents but nothing is said about people doing that.

    I simply told him this "It isn't the schools fault that you didn't attend class and do your homework. Transfer schools but don't say crap about this one".
    Plus the school did everything to help him with tuitoring and giving him easy classes months after the add/drop dates.

    I know really pointless but I think it is a teen parenting topic. :growlmad:

    I agree. It is sad that us younger moms get the reputation of being irresponsible and there's people like us out there who actually have responsibilities and are trying are best to make the situation as good as we can. Unfortunately it just sounds to be like this guy is very immature. Before I became pregnant, I was extremely rebelious, I did drugs and was just not a very good person at all. But as soon as I became pregnant I grew up immediately and stopped doing all the negative things in my life.

    It sounds to me like something life-changing will have to happen to your friend for him to change his attitude, whether that be failing school, becoming homeless, something tragic happening in his life, finding a girlfriend/love, having a baby, etc etc.. maybe not that extreme but you get the jist!

    I agree with you something life changing has to happen. The last life changing thing turning him into what he is now I believe. When his grandfather died he changed from this great person into what he is now. I just wish he wouldn't try to blame everyone else for his mistakes.
