Stigmatization of Young Mothers
Young mothers are mostly inexperienced with child care, and there are some who may not even be mothers by their own will. For young mothers who have little to no experience and are scared about raising a child, they need all the support they can get, so they can raise their children to their best abilities. Disrespecting or shunning them will not only reduce their self-esteem, but might make them neglect or abandon their child.
