I am a 19-year-old girl. I fell pregnant when I was 16 and had to drop out of school to take care of my child.
The father of my child was helpful but since he started attending varsity, he no longer treats me the same way.
He is still there for his child but he does not look at me the same way. Should I have a second child just to keep him?

Dear Ms Potential
The challenge of starting a relationship in your teens is that you and your partner are still developing into adults. Your partner is different now because at tertiary level, people usually find who they are and where they want to be.
A second child will not guarantee that he stays with you, but it could trap him!
Love is the ultimate form of freedom. When someone feels trapped in love, they will always look for ways to get free and this will result in two innocent children having their hearts broken. Finish your education or try to get a job to broaden your opportunities.
