Oct 9, Ed and Katrina say their year-old pregnant daughter, Kirsten, is dating a year-old ex-con who is admittedly controlling and abusive, and.
In his book, Dr. Phil says that dating is "simply one of the most inefficient, non-productive, haphazard, hit-or-miss ways to try to achieve one of the most important objectives of your entire life.
When you decide 'I want to find a life partner, I want to get out there and make it happen,' nobody has a plan," he says. That's just like a meat market where you're just hanging over, people walking by you. Phil says you must have a plan where you create what you want. Have a plan and work your plan. Phil acted as a coach for a woman while she was on a date. Here is his advice: Phil says into Wendy's ear. It will be absolutely mesmerizing. Look right at him. Are you sold on anything? How did she do?
So we freshened her up a little bit and then put her out there. Find out what you want to know and decide what it is you want him to know and make sure you deliver that information on that first date. The worst thing in the world you can do is if you go to a party and you meet four or five guys, and the next day not one of them can remember you.
If you are an environmental non-event, are you going to be lonely. Do make sure you are listening as well as speaking Do smile when you greet him and laugh at his jokes Do maintain good eye contact Do use filler questions Dr. Phil says filler questions lets the other person know you are interested in what they have to say. There's an art to it and everybody has their own style," he says.
I'm interested in what you're saying, with what you're doing right now. You're nodding while I'm talking and making eye contact with me and you just said 'right. Back then if you did the crime, you did the time; and people were eager to lock someone up and throw away the key back then whenever a crime involved a minor in an inappropriate act with an adult, so to speak.
Looking at the facts themselves from the above-aforementioned edition of Dr. Phil, Calah and her mother did reveal to Dr. She forbade her from having a boyfriend or even as so much going out on a date to a school dance. My former boss only brought her year-old daughter into her law firm a couple of times. For example, once I was working at my desk, and I sensed a presence behind me. It was an uncomfortable feeling for me. Many of you reading my article are going to have your opinions regarding situations like that of Calah, and you will likely stick with those same opinions unless someone provides you with Earth-shattering facts to convince you to have a change of heart.
In any event, regardless of whether or not you believe that Jason should go to prison for being intimately involved with a year-old girl, I have this one interesting point that I would like to make. What if Jason had only been 16 years old when he became intimately involved with Calah? Also, if Jason had only been 16 years old when he became intimately involved with Calah, what if Calah had also become pregnant with his baby?
Well, first of all, Dr. Phil might not have invited her to his television show, unless, of course, he was doing a program specifically about teenage pregnancy. Phil would likely not have been as interested in Calah as he actually was because of the age difference between her and Jason.
Second of all, if Jason had been a year-old boy who had gotten Calah pregnant at the age of 15, the law itself would have had no interest in her situation. Her story would not have appeared on the evening news in her Georgia locality. It would not have even made the headlines. Of course, Jason probably would have bailed on Calah in no time at all after he got the news that she was going to have his child.
Her peers would have ostracized her at school, and the very same people who would normally have given her a pity party for becoming intimately involved with an older man would have thrown her under the bus instead, in figurative words.
The American Epidemic of Deadbeat Teenage Fathers As you already probably realize by now, this HubPages article here is not for the purpose of discussing whether state legislatures should lower or raise the statutory ages of consent across the United States of America.
My article here is about the epidemic of deadbeat teenage fathers across the nation and what can be done about it. Now, for the sake of preventing confusion, I will define a deadbeat teenage father herein as any boy between the ages of 12 and 17 years old who has gotten an underage girl pregnant and has bailed on her.
That is, if a year-old man were to get a year-old girl pregnant and then he bailed on her, I think we all know exactly what the criminal justice system would do to him inasmuch as he is legally an adult. Therefore, any reference I make herein to a teenager or an adolescent is someone between 12 and 17 years of age. Since the s when the counterculture flourished and eventually made its way into everyday life among the young generations of the United States of America in one way or another, stories have been told over and over again about middle school boys and high school boys getting adolescent girls as young as 12 years old pregnant and then bailing on them.
The battle between conservatives and liberals over whether there should be sex education or abstinence-only education in the public school system has raged on throughout the decades since the s.
However, what seldom gets talked about is how society and even the law here in the United States of America should handle deadbeat teenage fathers. All of us men remember all the filthy locker room talk back in middle school and high school. I never participated in any of it, but I had gotten an earful of it from the time I was in the sixth grade up until my sophomore year of high school, which was the last year that I had to take a Physical Education class as a requirement.
It is so common nowadays to hear stories about a or year-old boy getting his year-old girlfriend pregnant and then bailing on her.

Kirsten Dunst played a typical clean-cut year-old girl whose year-old boyfriend only had one thing on his mind. After he got her pregnant, he began to become emotionally abusive with her; and he participated in malicious gossip throughout his school regarding her alleged depravity, so to speak.
Then after he broke up with her, he had the audacity to bring his new girlfriend with him to the maternity ward at the hospital where the year-old protagonist had her baby, and he had intended to appear unannounced with his new girlfriend. He sounds just like the typical punk that usually is a deadbeat teenage father.
In real life, these events happen more often than not. Then after the deadbeat teenage father abandons the underage girl that he got pregnant, he moves on to some other naive, unsuspecting young girl to do the same thing to her all over again.
These deadbeat teenage fathers leave these teenage girls with the responsibility of raising the baby on their own. Meanwhile, the law does nothing about it. A year-old girl gets much more support from outside sources for getting involved in a liaison with an older man than she does when she becomes pregnant with the baby of a boy the same age as her.

I can say this much. She will not likely get a pity party from Dr. Phil the same way that Calah Waskow did. In fact, while society shames her as being a bad girl, people look at the deadbeat teenage father as just another red-blooded, all-American boy engaging in normal adolescent behavior. I have worked in a social services agency before, and I saw this scenario all the time. Now, I have some idea of what some of you may be thinking. That is, there is the excuse that a, or year-old boy simply does not have the emotional maturity to deal with the responsibility of fatherhood.
Perhaps it may be a major burden for him to handle once he is confronted with it. Furthermore, many of these deadbeat teenage fathers learn how to manipulate the civil laws to evade their statutory financial responsibilities as a parent when they are approaching their eighteenth birthday.
Luckily, most deadbeat teenage fathers are not college material, and, therefore, they usually do not have this option to dodge their child support payments in that manner. By the time he completes his graduate studies and gets a full-time job, his kid could already be in middle school or even in high school.
Should Deadbeat Teenage Fathers Be Drafted?
I was once browsing around in my local library, and I came across this one large book regarding the adverse impact that deadbeat teenage fathers have had on the United States of America as a whole. I have been unable to find that book again in my local library since then, and I do not remember its title or its author.
However, it contained valuable information; and if I ever came across it again in my local library, I would definitely check it out from there and read it from beginning to end inasmuch as it was interesting.
The contents of the book were quite emphatic on how deadbeat teenage fathers have overburdened the social welfare system across the nation for years and years, and it described how wrong it was for teenage mothers to be stuck with the shame and embarrassment of having to apply for welfare benefits whenever her parents are unable to afford to help her support her baby while these deadbeat teenage fathers are allowed to move on with their lives without a care in the world.
In any event, it amazes me how it has been nearly fifty years since teenage pregnancy first became a major problem here in our country, and yet society and the law both continue to go easy on deadbeat teenage fathers.
Also, sometimes when the teenage girl stays with the teenage father of their child, the situation does not always turn out as planned.

Nearly a decade and a half ago when I was working in a call center, there was this one year-old boy named Andre also working there who had fathered two babies with his girlfriend back when they were both in high school, and I do call him a boy because of his substandard maturity level.
He was your typical punk who had an attitude the size of the Antarctica. He was living with his father and his two kids, and the mother of his two kids was living with them. He bragged about how he had two kids and he was just a kid himself. His desk was right next to mine in the call center where we worked.
Therefore, I heard many of his private conversations, because he had a big mouth. In one of his conversations, he admitted to a supervisor that he was getting a paternity test to prove that he had not gotten this one other woman pregnant. I began to wonder if the live-in mother of his two kids was aware of this situation. His friends were quite strange. One time he had been absent from work, because one of his friends who slept with a gun underneath his pillow had accidentally shot himself dead.
I feel badly for anyone who dies that way. However, Andre was a regular piece of work, if I ever knew one. Overall, it was clear that he was not bringing up his two toddlers in the best home environment. Teenage fathers have it way too easy here in the United States of America. Our nation has become the deadbeat teen dad capital of the world.

However, society continues to turn a blind eye to the situation. It amazes me how many of the same people whom I find posting comments on YouTube regarding how they pity adolescent girls as victims for becoming intimately involved with a significantly older man are the same people whom I find posting hateful and ugly comments on YouTube to deride teenage mothers whose baby daddies are also teenagers.
Okay, I get it. There are people who will find it completely immoral for an adult man over 18 years of age to become intimately involved with an adolescent girl below the statutory age of consent.
However, if a or year-old boy has intimate relations with this same girl and bails on her after he gets her pregnant, does the fact that he is the same age as her or close to her in age give him the right to wreak havoc in her life?
Unfortunately, some people seem to believe so. One story that I came across on YouTube that I found particularly moving was this one situation in which a girl named Sierra Watts had become pregnant at 15 years old and her teenage boyfriend had eventually bailed on her.
She did everything that she could to overcome the odds. Please watch her YouTube video down below for her story. Phil once invited Sierra to appear on his television show. However, she declined his invitation to do so, because she had reservations about his business ethics. She explains what those same reservations involved, in the YouTube video down below. After you watch her video, you will realize that the teenage father of her baby put her through much greater turmoil than Jason Johnson could have ever put Calah Waskow through, despite that the father of her baby was very close to her in age.
Phil's Invitation To Appear On TV Some of you out there who speak Spanish may know about a television talk show host named Cristina Saralegui who used to have a regular television talk show called Cristina in which she interviewed guests regarding different life-related situations.
So many years ago I recall watching one of her television shows in which she had a panel of guests who were discussing the subject of teenage sexuality. There was this one year-old Mexican man on the guest panel who was engaged to marry his year-old girlfriend once she turned 18 years old.
The most memorable part of that one show was when the year-old Cuban-American boy got into a heated argument with the year-old Mexican man. The year-old Cuban-American boy was screaming at the year-old Mexican man and telling him that he thought that he was a disgrace for being engaged to a year-old girl. The conversation became interesting when the year-old Mexican man lashed back verbally and told the year-old Cuban-American boy that it was teenage punks like him who sent teenage girls flying into the arms of older men his age.
I realize that the relationship between Calah and Jason was an aberration in so many ways in that they were going up against every possible odd as people in their local community continued to find out about their intimate involvement with each other.
