I'd say it is normal. BUT I'd stay a kid as long as u can!!!!!! If you want a baby id do babysitting!!! You kill 2 birds with 1 stone. You get paid to watch a baby/child. Win win situation. You get to spoil the ones you watch and hand them back to mom and dad. Lol. Seriously just babysit. Stay a kid yourself.
It's normal. But DONT do it! It's really nasty to be having sex at age 13. Babysit. For sure. It's fun, and instead of paying for a baby u get paid. Also, it shows u what to expect if u rly wanted to at 16.
Yes but as my health teacher says. Your to young, your still a kid your self wait and you will be thankful. And then she had us do the baby project to prove her point and the guys practically killed the babies.
If your 13 and believe you are gonna be a good mom then you haven't thought a darn thing thru. How would you support it? McDonalds isnt gonna pay what you need to feed and cloth a baby. Social Services? I was a teen mom (not 13 tho!) and they gave me $120 every two weeks while I did job training, if it wasn't for my family we would have starved. How are you gonna go to school on 2 hours of sleep cause your up all night with a sick or colicky baby? If you want to be a good mom wait until you have a career, a house of your own and can afford to give the baby the life it deserves!

Bless your 13 year old heart. it is "normal" for many girls to think about babies and motherhood. Not all girls think about that. it shows that you want to experience motherhood. I think you understand that the responsibility of motherhood becomes manageable after you get your education and are able to earn an income.
It's normal to want one at 13 but it's also normal to think you can marry some cool boy band star of the month and live happily ever after too. Teenagers brains aren't done cooking yet and good judgement is not typically a young teens best skill. Neither is patience, consistency or selflessness. Just a few of the most important things you need if a actually have a child. An education is helpful too but hard to get if you get that baby as a teen. Supporting that baby is a big reality check too many learn to late.

It is natural for a girl to want to have someone to love and to like babies. But if one is seriously considering having a kid at 13 that is not natural, because it isn#039;t loving. It is cruel to purposefully bring a child into this world knowing you cannot feed, clothe, afford, or in any way support him. And if you think you can do that, that is not normal either, because it means you are trying to make very BIG life decisions without the maturity to actually think things through. As someone already suggested, babysitting is a very good idea. That way, you can get experience with children, yet not have the financial responsibility of having any.

In our society it is not normal to want a baby at age 13, because young ladies need to prepare for their own future. To be a happy and successful person a 13 year old needs to have an education and an understanding of the functions of government, basic finance, law, nutrition, home repair, transportation, health care. These will come with time and experience. I say wait at least til you#039;re of the age of majority (18-21) when you have rights as a citizen. Because you are thinking about this, I think you will be a good mother, but by gaining experience as a good person you will be an even better mother. Also children thrive when they have the support of a good mother and father. Best of luck
Get a doll to play with. Or maybe just babysit nonstop for a week. You'll change your mind.
Any responsible young woman who wants to be a mother some day has the job to first grow up, finish school, learn to work and hold down a job, buy a place to live .... then maybe start to think about having babies, AFTER she is married!
It important to be a role model to your children. Being a teenage mom just says that you are a loser who could not think of anything better to do.
Go volunteer to help at a daycare center after school or visit old people at a nursing home. Give up sone of your free time and see how long you can hang in there! Then multiply that times 50 for how much time & effort a kid would be for you.
Babies are cute, and cuddly and they love you all the time. It's normal to want something like that in your life, but when you look at the flip side. They are demanding, need constant care, nurturing, attention. They don't sleep when you want them to. They get ill and cranky and cry a lot! You can't become a mommy today and when it is no longer fun put the baby on the shelf and go hang out with your friends. Go to the movies, play video games all day. You have to usually quit school and will probably never go back, because motherhood is a 24 hr job, 7 days out of the week. I suggest you go play with your baby brother, or nephew for awhile and pretend that they are yours. Then hand them back to their mother and go hang with your girls! Or even start babysitting if you love babies so much. BUT DON'T HAVE ONE NOW!
Noooo! Dat is really a bad idea! I have a friend dat had her first bby when she was 12, her attitude changed and she wasn't da same no more especially with no help..I'm about to be 19, and its even hard for me n my bby is 5 months old, jst wait time ain't goin no where =) lol
Young lady, you have been given some excellent advice here. I suggest that you get a pet and consider carefully the counsel given. And talk to your mom or some other responsible adult female who you respect. Having a baby at your age will stunt your growth in more ways than you can imagine.
