The most important issue is of housing (Dench, 2007, A). More than 50% of the teenage mothers lived with parent(s) especially during the course of pregnancy, remaining 50% lived with their partner, or on their own in a private rented accommodation while some prefer living in council housing, supported housing or in temporary housing (Dench, 2007, A). These accommodations were often not suitable for teenage mothers and they seek out support for improving their condition as in most of the cases they were not even able to bear their house rents. Not only the rented houses were the problem but, there was always scarcity of social housing. The situation further worsens when these young mothers move from chaotic family home and end up making themselves homeless (Dench, 2007, A). Moreover, because of lack of maturity and also poverty there are more chances of split up with the partners and this also makes them homeless. The situation of housing is further created when the neighbors frustrate them. Eventually, housing was a high priority for young mothers, and it was often an area of concern (Dench, 2007, A).
Next to housing is the issue of income of these young mothers. It comes from a mix of benefits and tax credits. It varies with the circumstances, for instance, if they were pregnant, where they were living, and whether they or their partner were working (Dench, 2007, A). Some of them receive Child Benefit, Child Tax Credit, and other sources of Income Support and, if they were not living at with their parent(s), Housing Benefit. Some of the mothers generate from a wage (their own, or in most cases, their partner's), or a mixture of wages and Working Families' Tax Credit. Some young mothers sort themselves, while others cannot. Sometimes young mothers lose their benefits if they split up with partners. Therefore, income and expenses are difficult to balance so they are refrained from continuing their education. On the other hand minority of the young mothers is careful in budgeting or is financially sound or living with their parents (Cater, 2006).
Another important issue is relationship with the child's father, as in 50% of the young mothers started off well with their partners in the beginning and then they had strained relationship with their child's father and have to bear the struggle alone, due to split ups, keeping themselves from joining back the educational institutions. In a few cases babies have strengthen the relationships of the parents. The reason for these strained relations varies but in most cases problems of housing and money culminated into domestic violence, abuse and splits (Dench, 2007, A).
Impact of having a baby is so much that pregnancy, followed by having a baby significantly affects the lives of young parents, predominantly mothers. In
