It can also be the most challenging time in your life as you experience heartbreak and other issues with your friends that you simply can’t explain.

Other people begin to notice the little details that you wouldn’t expect them to take note of, and they will often make a big deal of some of these things if they feel that it’s a concern or if they feel that they can benefit in some way.

Unfortunately, one of the things that teenagers in the 13-year-old age bracket face is pregnancy.

Whether they intend to get pregnant or not is still up in the air, but it does happen.

Kennedy Griest was 13 when she went to what was supposed to be a fun pool party with her friends in high school.
