younger moms vs older moms

do you feel younger moms ( 25 and under) aren't capable of being as good of moms as older ladies (26 +) ? sometimes I see a 15 or 16 year old mother and I feel pity for the child.

  • I think you can ENJOY parenting a bit more when you are older. . .

    But I was a busy young mommy, going to college and working full time, and of course going out every moment my little bear was with her daddy. . . I didn't really stop and smell the roses. . .

    I think teen moms bring some extra energy and enthusiasm to the game. . .whereas older moms may bring a little more wisdom. MAY. Some of them never really mature.

  • I think it all depends on the person. I think there are a lot of younger moms that give ALL younger moms a bad name.

  • I dont think it matters what age you are as long as you are a good mom.Who cares how old the mom is.

  • I am 19, and had my son at 18. I think I am a very responsible parent. My boyfriend and I both have good jobs, we spend tons of time with our son, we take care of him and he is happy and healthy. It has nothing to do with your age, only your level of maturity. I know plenty of moms that are bad parents and they are MUCH older than myself.
