I am quiet shocked to see in this months issue of mother and baby the article on "Which age makes the best mum?".
I am 19 years old so yes a young mother but I am so proud to be!!
I want to know when older people will finanlly realise that young mothers can be just as good if not better mothers then those in there 20's, 30's and 40's.
I am so disappointed to see how many people skip straight to judging a person when they dont know anything about them to begin with.
In the article it states that Anita Owens, 18 experience is not the norm.
I am sorry but what is??
I was 17 when I fell pregnant and 18 when I had my daughter, she was planned and I am still with her father (20 yrs old). We are not married or engaged but plan to be oneday. We recently bought our own house and a new car. Our daughter gets everything she needs. Not once has she gone without and will never but on the otherside she will never be spoiled.
I have no regrets and am happy to have been able to have this experience this young.
And to finish off I know plenty of young mothers out there who are doing great.
