I don't even have words.
I want to stab myself in the eye. And uterus. Just to make it STOP.
Do you know how many times I hear my students talk about "my kid"? I try to tell myself I didn't hear it. Especially not from that kid. I tell myself I misheard. Or that he's talking about his nephew, or cousin, or anything else.
The saddest part? Many of these girls are trying to get pregnant. Why? One of two reasons:
A) Because this way he'll stay with me. Because I love him so much that I want to have his baby.
B) Because they are so starved for love and attention that they decide to bring a baby into this world just so that baby will give them a child's unconditional love. They cannot get love from their parents, so they create a new person just for the purpose of receiving that person's love.
