When you become a teen parent, you are forced to grow up and give up on many of your dreams and ambitions to put your children first. For many teen parents, these dreams include going away to college. Although some teen parents are able to obtain a college degree, not often are they able to go away to college and have the “college experience.” According to an October 23 report, though, Kailyn Lowry of “Teen Mom 2” is determined for her kids to have the experiences that she missed out on after having a baby as a teenager.
According to the report, Kailyn wrote, “Looking at all my friends pictures in college makes me want my kids to do everything I didn't get to do! Looks like so much fun.”
Kailyn Lowry was able to get a degree and worked as a dental assistant before getting pregnant with her second child. Now married, the “Teen Mom 2” star plans on going back to college in the near future. Even though she is working hard to further her education, she won’t have the same experience that her friends had. For Kailyn Lowry, there was no living on campus, going to parties, or joining a sorority.
Even though the “Teen Mom 2” star did not have the opportunity for these things, she has been able to take part in some other joys that her friends did not get to have. Raising a child is hard work, but it is also one of the most rewarding things a person can do. Kailyn Lowry has done a phenomenal job at raising her son, Isaac. The young boy will soon be starting school and it must be rewarding for Kailyn Lowry to know that, even though she missed out on the college experience, she was able to help shape Isaac into a well-rounded young boy.
