Britain’s youngest mum article
This is a ‘real life’ article about a girl who became Britain’s youngest mum aged 12, and then had another baby at 16. It conforms completely to the stereotype of the teenage single mum, stating that she is unemployed, has been in trouble with the law and has been evicted from her house due to non-payment of rent and noise pollution. It includes information about the girl’s mother, who she has recently moved back in with to try to sort her life out, and states that she is a single mother of 9 who lives on benefits. This would be quite a shocking real life story to the reader of this magazine; it would make them feel better about their own lives as they would think they were different, better than these people.
