A new trend is taking over TikTok, highlighting teen moms.
Parents who had children in their teenage years are taking to the platform to recreate photos from their early days as parents. The results are funny and heartwarming, showcasing the struggle of early motherhood—and occasionally fatherhood—particularly as a teenager. The videos are set to “I’m Just A Kid” by the early-2000s pop-punk band, Simple Plan.
Often, the videos involve moms—now well past their teenage years—scooping up partially grown children to recreate photos. In the original pictures, nearly every young parent looks terrified, confused, or utterly exhausted. Sometimes all three.
In some cases, the videos revealed how completely unprepared these teens were to be parents. (That is not how you hold a baby.)
Even though some of these teen moms appeared to be thoroughly unprepared when their tots were first born, they are thriving now. Dozens of videos of happy families have been making the rounds.
They may have been young when they had children, but these TikTok users seem to be crushing parenthood.
