Understanding Glasgow film series: Young Mums

Young Mums 

“No matter how tired you are you still manage to get yourself into school…then you can always boast about it.”

“Sometimes you do wish you had the perfect family with you, your baby and obviously the baby’s Dad, but that’s not how it always turns out…the majority of the time most mums are better off doing it themselves.”

Three young mothers from Riddrie, in the east of Glasgow, discuss a wide range of topics of importance in their lives: motherhood, staying in education, change, routine, family, entitlement, Glasgow. 

“Why do we get looked down on for having babies young?…why judge other people?…some people that are adults cannae look after their kids because they don’t have the support.”
