I was referring to the generalizations you made about teen moms ending up on welfare and continuing to have kids and be jobless and bad parents
And most teen mothers probably don't have to live on their own and provide for their child. Many have families that provide some financial support as well as emotional support and caregiving.
And I'm not going to pretend that having a child at a young age doesn't put you at a disadvantage, but the way you worded your post implied that all teen moms would end up as failures and wouldn't amount to anything.
I value the study you provided, but the population size for the study, based on what I saw was 9000 teens. I don't think that is a large enough sample to put all teen mothers in one category and judge their lives
Actually, you may have missed some of the words this person used that clarify she (EDIT: or he, sorry for assuming sweatdrop ) is not talking about ALL teen mothers. I'm going to repost what she (or he) said.

People that start having their children in their teens are usually the ones that end up jobless and on welfare because they can't support their families but they keep having children none the less. Not that I'm saying this is what you're going to do, but it is what usually happens when people start having babies before they have a stable career path.
I don't mean to be intrusive, but I honestly think this was a case of miscommunication. You seemed to get upset at this person for making a statement about all teen mothers, when really they never said all. c: I can see how you missed the word "usually", though, and if you're still annoyed by the statement then that's up to you. Just wanted to highlight the point to see if it helps to clarify things.
