Teen mothers are not uncommon, but thirteen-year-old mothers whose daughters, too, become mothers at thirteen are a bit less common.

More importantly and more relevantly, teen grannies aren't signposts for a sane and tranquil middle-class existence. In each case, how old was the father and what circumstances led to pregnancy? Was incest or molestation involved? If the father was contemporary to the mother in age, then what did this boy's parenting role turn out to be and how was the child raised and treated ultimately?

I suspect that thirty-year-old women on Mobile Read aren't likely to put themselves in such disturbing positions (so to speak), nor are said positions what we wish to happen to the grannies among us.

How many of our Mobile Read members foreswore middle school to raise a tot? How many thirty-year-old grannies are we likely to find here really?
