It will also be fun to dress her up in cute outfits and see how much she has grown against a stuffed animal or baby chair. Baby pictures will also be more memorable if you are in the picture with your baby, for her to see when she grows older. While you will enjoy seeing your tiny baby, your teenager will have her own fun looking at your sense of fashion back then. Summary Mothers will notice many changes in their babies by the time they are one month old, including the way they communicate, play, eat and sleep. It is important to cope with these changes, but also to take care of yourselves.

This completely takes them out of their teenage years. I know a few teen moms and some of them are still succeeding in school and some of them aren’t.
The book, Please Stop Laughing at Me by Jodee Blanco, is an inspirational story about the abuse she endured during her years at school. She had to deal with physical, verbal, and emotional abuse throughout her school year. Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I can remember back in elementary school being the new kid. The kids made fun of me because I was new, but once they gave me a chance they liked me.
This caused her a lot of self-esteem issues as a young child trying to fit in with all the other kids. She felt an enormous amount of pressure at both school and home.

After we learn all the roles we will soon take part in, “the magic of puberty,” hits and girls immediately begin applying the ideals to their own lives (5).

She has shown tremendous communicative and academic skills. At age 5 her reports concluded she worked well in groups, but needed extra help in reading and writing. At age 8, Kiara scored above average on the visual spatial ability tests and also earned a wonderful report on her communication skills. The transition of going from a personalized classroom to a large classroom with new teachers, students, and environment could be tough (Arnett 2012). The academic work is placed into a higher level and grades are taken more seriously, but Kiara coped well with the pressure and she always received good reports from her teachers (Arnett, 2012).
