  • I don't think there is anything wrong with being a young mom, as long as you can take care of the kids you have it's no one's place to judge your family choices. Good luck (c:

  • When they do that, give them a big smile & say hi in a super friendly tone. I love doing that to people when they are rudely staring, it always catches them off guard & makes them feel like a weirdo. The look on their face is priceless.

  • when i was pregnant with my 3rd, i was 23 (had her when i was 24) and i used to get looks and judgments from people i knew. i used to think to myself of that visa commercial "insert item and price here, insert item and price here, the look on people's faces when they know you're on your 3rd child and how old you are - PRICELESS"

  • You know you are a good mom. Just ignore them.

  • You may look young but there's no way ppl know how old you are. I think you may be hypersensitive to people's reactions. Maybe they aren't judgemental and you are just taking it the wrong way. You even said, it's not something they are saying, it's just a "look"

  • oh I know what you mean...I'm 21 & thinking about our 3rd baby. It royally pisses me off because I look much much younger. You know what they can stare and make their comments, my husband & I support OUR family by OURSELVES. No assitance (except the kids insurance - Mediciad) Although I don't know many people these days that their children aren't on medicaid. They can all kiss my ass!!!

  • I had my 3rd by the time I was 22 also, I got the looks and still get them cause I am 28 with 5 living (6 total) I just laugh and say God bless, that seems to eat them up more than anything!
