I believe you answered your own question- 'child' at the age of 16. Will a child be financially and mentally able to raise another child in the best possible way? Not impossible but most unlikely, that's my personal belief
Yes, and no, I am 16, if I got a girl pregnant would I want her to keep the child? Yes, I would want her to keep the baby, because it is a part of me. Am I ready to be a father? No, I am no where near ready to be a father. I would do my best to support the child and I would get my parents to help me. (assuming they haven't already buried me.) I may be ready emotionally, and physically, but mentally I have a long ways to go. I hope this answered your question.
Well it all depends on the matureness of that kid . A 16 yr old can have a bby just like these 11 yr olds raped nd all havin kids but that's why they have to be able to mantain the child if they decide to keep it Ofcourse its a HARD STEP OF LIFE but nobody is never ready for a child life puts us thru good nd bad nd at times ppl make wirst decision . So its possible.
If you ask them they'd say absolutely!! They think they're all grown up at that age. I did too when I was that age and had a kid. It pissed me off when people would stool call me a kid when I was a mother!! 30 yrs. later I look back and realize I was just what they said I was a kid!!! I thought I was ready to be a mother and had 4 kids by the age of 23yrs. I struggled everyday to raise them and its the hardest thing I've done in my life today but if I could do it all over w/the info I have now, I'd wait and have myself together before I'd become a mom!! I live all 4of my kids and have an awesome relationship with them as well but that was not always the case.
In my opinion it is better to wait until you know you can a 100% take care of a child. But a child is a blessing and no one is really ready for a child. They are a blessing, but a big responsibility and you want to be able to take care of yourself first before bringing a child into the world.
No, not in this culture. You need to graduate from high school and take child development courses unless you have a lot of experience with children and babies, but you need to think of the financial aspect as well as being sure you are going to marry the man of God's choice in my opinion. There is much to learn and do before starting a family.
