  • Not at all. Age does not make a good parent. Determination and love do that.

  • i dont believe that age has anything to do with the ability to care 4 a child or love that child as it needs to b loved its all in how much a person wants to b a mother and care for a liil one

  • I am a teen mom and I happen to think i am a damn good mom. I am not perfect by any means but I am a better mom then some ladies in their mid twenties. So no I dont think that at all.

  • No, but teen moms face challenges that older moms (even those in their mid 20's) don't.

  • Hell NO! I was 16 when I had my first child. He is way more advanced than others in his class. I raised him with love and passion nothing could ever change the way I loved my children or raised them. I was and am a DAMN GOOD PARENT

  • Most of the teen mother's I've known have far less patience than the older mother's I know. They also (in general) seem to be more interested in partying, etc. and less willing to put the kid first.

  • I was a Young mom. Some people call me a teen mom because I got pregnant at 18, & some people dont because they say 18 is an adult... anyway

    I dont think being a teen mom makes you a bad mom, or a good mom. Its the person their self. I am not a perfect mom. I make my mistakes, but Im more mature then some of my friends who are moms & are older then me. I dont drink much, if ever, I dont ever ever do drugs, Im not out parting. I make sure my child has everything he needs, & ALMOST everything he wants.....

    age doesn't make a parent good or not.

  • No, age doesn't matter with parenting. I know people who had kids REALLY young who are WAY better parents than people who had kids in their mid-twenties or older. Age is just a number and does not have anything to do with how well a person will parent a child.

  • I think there are pleanty of good teen moms... but in general I think older moms are more likely to be better parents. Obviously there are good and bad moms of any age, but...
