What do you think would be a good/appropriate age to start thinking about having children?
What's the Best Age to Have a Baby?
In my opinion would be in your 20's and when you have a head on your shoulder and money coming in. Kids are expensive To be completely honest. After 35 you can have serious complications and harder to get off the baby eight... I won't be having kids anytime soon I will be 21 soon I just know I am not ready and can't support a newborn or any kids. I was hard enough being 9 years old and my mom having a stroke after 2 months of having my baby sister. I had to do yard work after school until 6-8pm at night making 5 dollars a hour just trying to help my mom and Sister and myself.. I am glad it happened because I wouldn't be the same and that wouldn't of teached me learn morals and respect.. She is now going be 12 It all depends on if you are ready or not.
Always you protection no matter what unless you want Kids...
I'm a strong believer in the importance of having a good kids to resource ratio. No younger than 27.
I'm sorry to hear that about your mom. =( But situations like those force you to break into independance, which in your case is most admirable and commandable.
I agree, after a certain age there are many risks and complications involved, but I couldn't imagine having a baby before being around 30; I'm almost 23. And yes, one must be prepaired financially as well as emotionally to have a child, but also a stable environment.
after that why would you wanna be bothered?
hell when im 45 im not gonna want to be changing diapers and whiping snotty noses, staying up all night listening to screaming and wimpering... did that already with my old roommate...
^^Interesting standpoint, I hadn't even thought about tolerance level versus age.
when you're ready. mature, with enough financial means.
I'm gonna have one in about 2 or 3 yrs
I tell my boys after 25 is a good age to start thinking about kids. This is if they are married/stable partner and have a job/house etc.
I myself was ready to be a mother @ 17yrs old. I don't regret it at all. But if I had someone to tell me to wait, I would have. I actually feel I was born to be a mother and that's really what my true calling was. I've had the pleasure to stay home with all 3 of my children--oldest will be 12 next month. Truly am blessed
Hats off to Nana
Biotch! You wish you had a phone like mine...
I personally know way too many bitches with kids, I find they ruin your life especially if youre in your prime.
I'm well aware I shouldn't reproduce until I'm less selfish and stop drinking/smoking.
I wish other bitches would do the same tbh.
No younger than 35, but no older than 29.
Seriously, fuck having kids.
I agree with abz, I have friends with kids I'll chill with them but once that baby starts crying....it's yours gotta go peace.
Most of my former classmates have families with one or two kids mostly, but I'd be mortified if I were to have a child right now. There is so much I want to do , see and experience before, because I would never want to blame my flesh and blood to be of me not being able to fulfill my life's dreams prior to having them. *<~ does that make sense?*
In your twenties is fine
reading my mind lol
There is no perfect time. I have to two -10 yrs apart. There is no easy age. It was hard to adjust both times but you do it . Kids are the best. I'd have 100 if i didn't have to get pregnant again. I'm done now and all before 30.
Nothing is impossible!
Exactly my feelings. I'd love to have a baby, but not it's simply not the moment.
I think the best moment is when you feel you have the resources and the time a child needs to have a nice childhood
