  • I don't have one. Just like I don't have an opinion on older moms. It's the actions, not the age that I form opinions on.

  • Most mother in laws are idiots. I know mine is. It's probably best you ignore her. What does she think you're doing wrong?

  • I think that they are giving up so much of their life way to early. I don't look down on them, but I think eventually they will look back and feel some sadness at what they did miss out on.

  • how young are we talking... I think that a younger teen (under 16) has NO business being a mother, but at 17/18 and older should be responsible enough to prevent pregnancy or deal with the consequences... I know plenty of young mothers who do a great job so I wont judge

  • I really think it is a mil thing, not an age thing, mine is like that too, and I am on my 4th kid, she only raised one of hers, who do you think knows more about kids?

  • I'm a young mother. I stay at home with my kids, and take very good care of them. I don't think it matters what age you are. There are good moms both young and old, and bad moms both young and old. It all depends if the mother is capable, and willing to be the best mother for her children.

    I don't. I'm 26 and have been a mom for almost 11 years. Not a regret. Not saying teens should(they shouldn't!!) but the idea that I missed something and will want it back simply isn't true.
