I think its a good thing to be a father. Its not a moral failure to care for a child, on the contrary. People have been having children in their teens for CENTURIES. Better a father for cares for his kids and still does amazing in his classes, than a deadbeat who does neither. His daughter is lucky to have him.
Better a man who takes on responsibility early, than a man-baby who is still working shit jobs with no family well past his 20s.
It's not a good thing to have a baby at 16 years old. You can't provide for it and pretty much sacrifice your chances at higher education. Glorifying this guy who has made horrible decisions is ridiculous. Not to mention this "man" refused to admit he was the father for 3 months and only goes to visit his kid once a fortnight, while paying for absolutely nothing.
>It's not a good thing to have a baby at 16 years old.
Its not a great thing, but neither is having a baby at 35. However, good on him for stepping up to the plate. Family is always a good thing.
>You can't provide for it and pretty much sacrifice your chances at higher education.
Not buying it, on either count. There's plenty of programs for poorer families, since he's young he likely still has his expanded family alive to help him (which is how families were traditionally done). """Higher education""" is not the end-all and be-all of human life and in fact the huge glut of higher degrees hasn't much paid off for the millennial generation anyway, most don't get jobs remotely relevant to what they studied in that """higher education""". I got a bachelors degree and while it was okay and all, I'd much rather have a family right now.
That said I am sure he can get a higher degree and I am willing to bet he will go into it with a far more responsible and prudent eye ("what courses will better my ability to provide for my family?") than the average 18 year old who just wants a place to drink and get his dick wet.
>Not to mention this "man" refused to admit he was the father for 3 months and only goes to visit his kid once a fortnight, while paying for absolutely nothing.
So then what were you saying when you said that he "sacrificed his chances at higher education"? Sometimes its hard for men to step up to the proverbial plate. They don't carry a baby inside them so at first they might feel detached from the whole thing, especially if the mother has custody (as it sounds like she does). But I will never fault him for having a child in the first place and I will encourage him to see his child more if he is able. Those are both good things.
>tfw all the biggest dickheads from highschool had unwanted kids at 17-20
Who's the virgin weirdo now, Daniel?
Looks exactly like my little brother.
Not even kidding.
and guess what, he's got a kid and he's 18 years old.
Meanwhile I was in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Momma fucking loves little bro more than me.
>one girl in my year level gets knocked up in highschool (several rumoured to have had abortions)
>in the year after graduating ~1/4 of the girls in my year level had had kids
>""""''Living"'"''''" in south Auckland
Having a family is one of the most basic biological drives.Its literally the basis of our existence.
Also gross how you point out the girls, but none of the guys...you think those kids appeared from nowhere?
If it was South Auckland they would've had the kids in highschool m8, not immediately after
I just find it funny that it's like they were waiting for highschool to finish before they got knocked up.
>Also gross how you point out the girls, but none of the guys
After a brief look none of the guys in my year level had photos of themselves with babies plastered all over their Facebook account
>he didn't live in the esteemed mansions of Merivale
>he didn't attend a prestigious Christchurch private school
>he didn't spend his days hitting sixes with Daniel in the Hagley Oval
>he didn't have his penis polished off by a Filipino maid every evening
In some ways I agree but if you think about it modern society is one giant cuk that puts everything in our way know to man.
>Someone to care about
>Someone who cares about you
The rest is meta but we get so focused on it.
This is why higher education and work for everyone is a terrible idea. Nobody is having kids because they have to work/go to school for 20 years and get sick of it first or they're pond scum that 'couldn't manage to get an education'
There's enough part time courses, ways to get degrees later on, but still we all for for this shit and let ourselves get outbred.
I always post in and find successful threads late in their life-cycle. The posting seem to stop shortly after my post every time. ;_;

I'm a tall good looking guy and all it does is make people way more wary of you
I was extremely shy in high school and terrified of strangers but people just thought I was a stuck up cunt who thought he was too good to talk to them
Personality is way more important than looks
You haven't seem the autistic handsome people I've seen, you ever wonder why there's so many muscled dudes wandering around edm concerts with their shirts off? It's because the only way they can get laid is if the girl is wasted and the music is too loud for her to hear him drop spaghetti everywhere
Kinda wish I had kids early with my first love
Now that time is gone and I fear the chance will never present itself again
Something we can't have in America otherwise the faculty would get sued for "favoritism," or some such nonsense. Basically the faculty choosen best and brightest among his peers, sort of like our valedictorian, but based on things other than just grades like personality, popularity, extracurriculars, &c.
I cant comprehend how autistic kiwis are
but good on the guy for keeping the kid, better than a single mother raising the child tbqhwya lads
Over here we call it the School Captain/s, and its presided by a year level council, same goes for Junior and Senior sports captains etc, but New Zealand, fucking kek
>he gets to be Head Boy
>mom gets to be a mom
good. people having kids at such a late stage in their lives is going to have major consequences on the quality of our successive populations. rates of autism and genetic disorders are already skyrocketing
some people are just born to be a grunt man, if they prioritize their pleasure than their intellectual achievement then just let them have it.
all this fedora mindset where intellects is everything is what wrong with the world and that's why we keep spawning self-entitled smartasses to kill our societies
where were these drunk 16 y/o whores when I was in school
>He's fucking 17 man
don't underestimate people at that age
they are old enough to know what they are doing and old enough to know better
at 17 "everyone" knows it's a terrible idea to have a kid
In my city there are a huge amount of opportunities in trade careers, so a school was set up for the last two years of high school for dropouts to get trade certificates while still finishing year 12 and getting their high school certificate.
I'm not kidding when I say 80% of the students there knocked up a girl/got knocked up themselves while at the school. Every year you get kids from there who fuck off to the gold coast because they got a slut pregnant who refuses to abort and they do not want to deal with it.
There's nothing wrong with this though. Everyone thinking they need to go to university is stupid as fuck and has just devalued the worth of a degree while also turning universities into businesses instead of higher education centers
They did this shit with the Maori kids and a lot more of them are in full time work than would have been if people had just left them to their own devices once they turned sixteen and dropped out
