  • I don't think it's a bad thing, but I would say anyone under 20 is pretty young

  • I think anyone under 24 is a young mom. I do not think their is anything wrong with being a young mom. I know that the ability to be a good mom is not based on age but on drive.

  • Young mom to me would be a teen mom, or maybe early 20's? 20, 21, 22. Being a young mom isnt a bad thing... Being a mother comes naturally at any age. Of course "young mothers" are judged as being immature and not ready for the responsibility of having children. Some "young mother" prove this to be true, however, most mothers are wonderful at any age.

  • If you're too young to vote then I consider you a young mom. Nothing wrong with young moms. Women of any age can love and care for a kid if she tries hard enough.

  • Being "young mom" doesn't mean a woman isn't a good mom. I was what most think of as a "young mom". I had my 1st daughter just before my 18th birthday. She is now 33 and the most wonderful person you'd ever meet. Not tootin' my own horn here. Just quoting other peoples' opinions. But, yes, I did a fine job and raised a beautiful & wonderful daughter. I know some "older moms" that aren't great moms at all. I know some great ones too. But, the point here is that age is not the deciding factor in whether or not a woman is a good or bad mom.

  • I know a girl who just had a baby and she's only 13 so you that's way too young but don't tell her that because she has a nasty attitude attitude not to mentio9n also9 a filthy mouth that needs to be washed out with soap if you know what I mean.

  • A teen mom. I got pregnant at 18 and I didn't consider myself a young mom. I had friends get pregnant at 13 and 15 and 16..
