Did you answer the how many kids did you have before 22 question yesterday?

You know I don't really care what people think of me but what I cared about was that they asked the question just to vote people down which I found very childish and immature. What did you all think? I am a lot older then some of you, I have a career and I have a degree and I am doing great just because I had a child before 22 doesn't make me or anyone of you a bad parent in fact I'm a DAMN good parent.

  • I agree! I answered, but if I had known they were going to judge people by that silly little question I probably wouldn't have wasted my time answering the question.

  • i am a lot older than most women on here too
    i missed the question
    but i did not have a child at 22
    i had my child at 42
    i do not think someone is a bad mom because of their age
    bad moms come in all ages, shapes, locations, education levels, races, heights, weights, etc etc etc

    what is the issue, ???

  • I seriously agree, I had 2 children at 22yo. It's not a bad thing, some people are just ignorant and seem to find whatever reason to vote others down. It's stupid.

  • I have come to the conclusion that there are a few bad eggs out there who enjoy disrupting the peace around CafeMOM. I stay away from the anon. questions unless they are in categories that seem safe, like Crafts & Hobbies and Home & Garden. Sadly, the trolls will ruin it for some and then the whole Q & A will just be another drama filled group. I'm hoping this will not happen, because I love lending a hand and helping peeps who really need the advice.

  • I think it was just one person-I went back and looked at the link and it was only one vote down per under 22 answer-you can not be sure the person that asked it also voted down-it could have just been some loser!

  • I missed that question.
    silly people to think a number next to 'years' makes some one better or worse at parenting...

    I was married at 19, had all 3 by the time I was 24.

    having kids younger just means our bodies got back in shape faster...
