I have seen so many questions of moms asking "we" think it's wrong for teen and younger women to have babies. Why is it ,you think, that we are so obsessed with young verses older? Women over the age of 35 are putting there child and themselves at more risk than say a 17 - 18 yr old is. So what's the difference When women get preg. Planned and not at older and younger ages?

at least at 35 you have the maturity to raise a child and usually a stable home life and are not dependant on welfare, and hopefully the father to be is also in the picture and has a decent job. Not to say that young moms don't but I know I was still a kid at 18 and hadn't finished my education. I personally chose to have my kids betwwen 25 and 30, not too young and not physically too old. All children are gifts, and we manage at whatever age they arrive.

It's important because younger people are generally selfish, irresponsible, lack life experience and in the under 18 catagory, still need adult supervision, structure and guidance! How can we be expected to raise a child when we are still growing up ourselves? How many of us thought we knew it all as teens, only to grow up and realize what idiots we were?
But on the other hand, if we wait too long, we are risking our health and in some cases, we risk getting too old and feeble to handle a small child with so much energy!
