There have been plenty of cases where full grown women have been with men who killed their kids. Hell, there have been plenty of cases where full grown women or men killed their OWN kids. I hate when people put down girls who have kids at a young age. Usually, they didn't have the best lives themselves. Despite what some of you seem to think, teenage moms aren't all horrible mothers, nor are they acting like they're from a "third world country" (whatever the hell that's code for). My mom was a teenage mother. We all have the same dad, and my parents were together for over 50 years until my dad passed away last year. My sister and I are both successful professionals with graduate degrees. My brother chose not to go to college, but he still built a successful life for himself, including his wife of 30 years and their 2 kids. But you rarely hear about those of us who overcome the odds and actually make something of ourselves. Is being a teenage parent an ideal situation for the parent or the children involved? Of course not. Does it mean you're some kind of sub-human who never should have had your children? Again, of course not. Some of you need to stop looking down your noses at other people. Too many of you seem to easily forget about the horrors that take place in your own backyards, with so-called age-appropriate parents who are seemingly living the "perfect" American life (Chris Watts, anyone?).
I'm with you. Though I do think women who leave their children (especially teenage daughters) alone with grown men they haven't known very long do deserve blame, for the most part the public scapegoats the women while letting the men off the hook. There are way too many insecure, psychotic men who are emotional cripples and can't deal with any form of adversity in their lives without lashing out violently.

Maybe I missed it, but I haven't seen anyone on this thread claiming that child abuse is rare.

I don't think anyone did, but it's in Current Events. It's always been a current event.

Default Not letting BFs babysit

I wonder why so many single mothers leave their children with boyfriends to babysit? Most women state they have been sexually abused at some point before adulthood. Yet, they so freely allow boys or men sex partners who are just passing through their lives to babysit their child(ren). Especially keeping their little girls. Why can't these women connect the dots? It's not quantum physics.

I'm a woman but I will never understand why my sex does this and I will never understand why men/boys beat, rape, or beat and rape someone but especially why they do this to little children.
