I’m a teen mum and I’m sick of the stereotypes – I’ve got seven kids now but trolls STILL presume I’m unfit
A young woman who has seven kids has told how she's sick of trolls making assumptions about her just because she's a teen mum.
Jess, who is from the US, posted a short video to TikTok alongside a caption which reads: "Where all my bonus parents at?"
The young mum, who has five biological children and is step mum to her boyfriend's two kids, goes on to list several cruel jibes she's received for being a step mum.
Along with being told she's "not their real mum," Jess is often reminded "those are your STEP KIDS not your kids" and "you don't have seven kids, you only have five."
In a second clip, Jess, who first fell pregnant aged 17, goes on to share common stereotypes associated with being a young mum.
These include the assumption that she wants to take advantage of government assistance and that her mum was also probably a teen mum.
