Being a teen father comes with its own set of unique challenges and questions. You might be wondering where you fit in your baby's life, how to manage your changing relationship with your baby's mother, and what your legal responsibilities are.

Plus, knowing what the mother of your baby is going through will help you be a better parenting partner.
