I understand . & Thank you for you feedback . I shouldn't of posted this question it was just something going through my head . A spontaneous idea that was unintelligent . This is why most teenage girls end up pregnant for immature ideas of feeling as if a baby completes everything . I know it was wrong and I thank you for not making me make a stupid decision as putting a baby into this world that I can't even support. I rather finish high school & go into college & be successful young women . Thank you so much

Your wonderful to have acknowledged this! You could do this world and your fellow teens a great service by pointing this out to them as well. Having a baby is hard and solves nothing, just creates another problem.

How do you think you can support a baby, if you can't even support yourself? You will need to pay for shelter, food, clothes, diapers, furniture, etc for your baby for the next 18 years. Are you ready for that? Nope.

Uhm I can support my self . I have two jobs & enough money to get an apartment & pay rent for at least the first 6 months on the spot (meaning I have enough as of right now to pay all of that ) & have money left over . & well educated . If you don't know me don't Judge me by a question I asked . But that question was a unintelligent question just because I let my emotions get ahead of me . I thought having a baby would complete me & my boyfriend relationship when in reality it will cause a lot of problems . I may be socially awkward at times but I am well educated & can support my self just not a baby at the time . But thanks for your feed back I guess .

There is a reason that you are not legally an adult until age 18. What other reason is there, other than she is too young?

& you don't need to be a certain age to support a child . That's a stereotype . It's like saying all Spanish people cook . What makes you think being 18 has anything to do with supporting a child ? I'm 17 & so what ? I am a independent & strong women & my age or YOU won't tell me other wise . I'm not saying I'm having a child but if I do my age won't stop me . I can support a child at any age with my mentality like this .

You still have a long way to mature, if you think anyone can be ready to have a baby at 17. That's all I have to say, good luck to you.

What should you do first? Uh...get married.
If you're not financially independent and won't be able to provide a good home for your child, then do the baby a favor and don't get pregnant yet. You're just too young. Wait until you're old enough, independent enough, responsible enough, (and married), before you have a baby.

Don't be selfish, think of the baby. You're too young to provide for a baby like it deserves.

You mean you are pregnant right now or you are planning on it once you get married? you should probably start dating first and then when you get married go to the class.

Give yourself a chance first,17 is way to young to be a parent. At your age you are not ready for the real world or the responsibility of a child.

It's okay to want children, however you are far too young. At your age you don't have the financial means and the maturity to raise a child. More than likely your parents would get stuck taking care of the baby. Finish high school, if you already have get a degree or find steady work. Dave money, find a guy who you fall in love with and he falls in love with you, get married and have children. This sounds rude but you're 17, not even an adult. What makes you think you can raise a child?!
