Or is it just me....?
I'm 23 but i had my first child when i was 17. I felt sometimes that some people (and sorry but mainly the older generation) would look down on me. I'm sorry, yes i was a myoung mum but that doesn't mean i'm going to be a bad parent... does it?? To be honest i think i have done a far better job bringing up my 2 children than some of the older mum's that i know and hang about with have done bringing up there's.
It's not all negative though... there have been times when i an older aged mother has actually complemented me on something i have done or the way i have handled a situation and said that they couldn't have done it themselves. So it's not always bad, but i did feel at first that i always had to proove myself... now i couldn't care less, as long as i think it's right i'm gunna do it! :o) xxx
