  • First off having a baby just because youre in love is stupid. Kids are a very real responsibility and they cost money. Do you have a job? A place of your own to live? Have you finished school? If not then get on birth control and wait. It isnt fair to bring a baby into the world thats not going to have a mommy or daddy that can provide for it. Babies are alot of work and arent just something that you decided to have because omg I love him.

  • I agree with the above poster. Competely taking your age and parents out of the equation...ask yourself this:

    How are you going to support this child? If you say food stamps, WIC, or welfare that is VERY irresponsible of you.

    If you answered no to any of the following questions then you (and your friend) are not ready to have a baby.
    Do you have a job? Do you have a home (that is NOT your parents or his) for your family to live? Can you pay for rent, groceries, baby food and formula?

  • Ridiculous! Of course she shouldn't TRY! I am hoping this post is a "fake". why the hell would anyone 13 ( or close to it) be joining Mother boards anyway? What makes her think she can financially take care of a baby. ( her body isn't ready for one either). This just makes me sick. At 13 I was consumed with Cheerleading, Soccer, shopping with friends, dreaming about being a singer, etc. HEll! I just put up my Barbie dolls a few years prior! She might think she is "in love" but it will NEVER work. there will be plenty of boys/men to come. FYI a Teenagers brain isn't fully developed until mid-20's! Hence the reason why teens make such irrational STUPID decisions!

  • If this guy loves you so much he will wait until your both older and take care of a baby. You don't need to rush you're just a kid yourself. If you have one now that poor child will have to grow up without the things he/she needs. Please wait....

  • Neither one of you should breed, you do not take being a parent seriously. Having a baby is not a way to keep a man nor a way to show you love him...you know what...Nevermind. I call Troll.
