Well i was just having a normal convo. with my daughter im 36 and shes 14 turning 15 and she was telling me about how all of her other friends have parents who are in their 50s and tells me its cool having a hip parent. I dont know if this is weird for me to be a little afraid of but my daughter said she wants to have a baby at 19 or 20. No effence at all to any of the other mothers this young but i want her to go finish college and everything before a baby and not have any financial issues. Also i dont want her to then go out and look for love thinking "Oh this will be my babys daddy" Can any other moms relate to this or think im crazy for being scared sort of?Answer Question

I don't think this is the end of the world. A lot of young girls think about what an ideal parent would look like. She may have it in her head that for her an ideal mom is someone who has enough energy to run around with a toddler (God knows I feel that way when I am racing after mine - I think, I'm too old for this), looks and dresses in such a way that is not embarrassing, and someone a teen can talk to. It doesn't mean that when the time comes, when she turns 18, she will be looking for that guy she wants to be her children's daddy. I often said things at this age about what I wanted to do...not all of it turned out that way. Even if she does have children at an early age - she is an adult at that point. Tell her your hopes and wishes for her. By the way, even with a child/children she can still live out her dreams. And there is nothing wrong with having the greatest desire to be "just a mom."
