One of my friends sent this article to me that really shocked me. It was from The Sun news in United Kingdom, titled “Baby-faced boy father at 13″. And it’s really shocking because the boy Alfie is only 13 but he looks like five years younger. And his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman is only 15 years old and gave birth to 7lbs 3oz Maisie Roxanne.
A 13 year old should be playing outdoor and computer games but this one, he had embraced the big responsibility of becoming a dad in an early age. And it is also a heartbreaking news because of the consequences that they have to face without thinking. I know this news will be an reminder to everyone to be a responsible teenager and also to the parents. As parents should educate their children in an early age and open their minds about sex education.
I hope that alfie and chantelle will become a responsible parents to Maisie Roxanne with the help and support of their family and friends. Nobody knows what will their future be but as long there is faith and love for each other they will overcome what they have come through.
