Yes, especially in this day and age. You cant be proper parents to a child without having the knowledge behind it. Yes, Grandparents and Great Grandparents got married at 14 and 16 and stayed together forever and had 12 kids and all that...... but they also had a different work ethic. They didnt use the government for everything. They didnt use the TV to babysit the kids...they actually read to them and made them smarter. Their was no such thing as ADD or ADHD back then because the parents took the time to keep the child busy. Keeping them busy kept them focused. At 19 and 20 you dont even have your own life together... so why bring a child into the equation?
Yes it is young. There is a positive and negative side to it. Negative is your freedom taken away at such a young age. Positive note, you will still be young when they are all grown up. You'll get your freedom back at a older age.
My wife and I are 20. Recently married, and been dating since we were 13. But we still don't think we're ready for a kid. There's too much to see and do. Kids are great, but there's a reason most people wait till their older. Hope that helped somewhat
In my opinion, it depend on if the couple is married or not and it REALLY depends on if the couple is mature enough and is willing to give up all their time and effort and money taking care of the baby. If u have gotten married and are willing to give up time, money, and effort then I say to heck with it go ahead and start MAKING THAT BABY!!!!-------> <3
Well it depends. You have to be financially stable enough to be able to care for a baby then go for it. Also make sure you guys love each other enough. I would say wait a few years first or until you get married.
Do the following apply to you: ~~are both working ~~can financially support yourselves in your own living space (not living with a parent or anyone else) ~~can support the baby ~~can support yourselves when one of you takes maternity leave to take care of the baby ~~can pay for day care when you go back to work ~~can pay all of the medical bills If the answer is yes to all of the above, then yes. If the answer to any of those options listed is no, then you are not old enough.
My mother was 19. My wife was 15. I am 23 (wife now is 23 as well). today we're checking to see if she is pregnant. The answer is no. A female who is old enough to reproduce and can should be taught the responsibilities. Our society is too fragile for that right now. But there was a time that it was tolerated and I honestly think we need to teach people about family values and responsibilities at a young age. We're too focused on selfish needs and wants and it's crippling our society.
respectively you two are going to be fine. I promise.
yes. you need to get a degree because factory and most well playing labor jobs are in china. if you have kids then that can't get done. also you arent responsible enough at such a young age. id say a good time is 23 to 26. but a lot of people are now having kids at 35-40 for the convenience
i just turned 19 when i had my son hes almost two n the smartest n most loving kid ever he was not planed but he is far from regretted don't rush anything kids need alot of love care and attition its not always easy or cheap so its ur choice but u will trade any party life u have for Disney movies :)
