Not at all, as long as you are able to provide your kids with love and care, how cares about age?? :-)

I just turned 22 this year I have a 3yr old , 1 yr old and 2 month old I , I often think about how I should have waited to have kids I love my kids to death but its just me at home with all three of them and they are all extremely spoiled I go nuts , don't sleep wake up early to cook , can't get any peace of mind , can't keep the house clean I have a tiny studio so they gave access to everything lord

Now that I'm back in college I often wonder why I rushed into having a family. I love my son and already love the child that we are expecting, but sometimes wonder how much easier it would be if I didn't have to find a sitter to go to school or do homework. (my husband works evenings). I run a home daycare and raise my own child. I can support him and I love him very much so I see nothing wrong with having children young. I just feel guilty when I leave him for three hours four times a week.

Being a young mom is the BEST! Just think, you'll get so much more time with your kids and potential grandkids in the future since your started young :)

no way!!! i'm 25 and expecting my fourth!!! i have had so many people tell me im crazy!!!! Just as they did when i fell pregnant with my third when my second was only 15 months. if you know you can do it then dont let anyone get you down. dont take notice of those who make you feel bad, all that matters is if your happy!!

No its not bad...because i was 23 and had a 6 yr old, a 5 yr old and was expecting my 1st son...now i am 26 and i am expecting my 2nd son...their names are...Bryttny who is now 9...Alexia who is now 7...Rayden who is now 3...and Colden will be here in a couple of weeks...I had Bryttny a week after my 17 birthday...i was 18 when i had Lexie...i had Rayden a week after my 23 birthday...so its not bad to be a mom of 3 at a young age...and honestly i wouldnt let anyone else tell you differently...as for my parents...my mom was 16 and my dad was 19...and between them they had me my brother adam and my brother james....later after they divorced my mom had my sister latisha...and my brothers matthew...jakob...and bryan...my dad had my brother andrew...and the ages...me 26...adam 25...james 23...latisha 20...andrew 20...matthew 19...jakob 17...and bryan is 14...so i understand being young and a mom...but its also fun to have people you care about around to see your kids grow up to be happy and healthy...

My mom was 17 on the 1st, 18 on the 2nd and 19 when she had me. 4 years down the road she had my lil sis. But I love that my mom is so young. I am now 20 and have 1 and expecting another. She is a young grandma being only 40 when most grandparents are like 50 or so...and she can do a lot with her grandchildren

As long as you are happy, and your kids are too, then thats all that really matters. i had my first at 19, and im expecting again.
Sometimes i think, omg im going to be 22 with 2 kids, but then again i think thank god im still young and will crawl on the floor with my girl and play the silly games that i might not do if i was older.
All the best with your pregnancy and stop doubting yourself, im sure your a wonderful mum!

i think whether its "bad" or not is a matter of personal opinion. im 21, i have a 3 year old daughter & am 7 months pregnant. but im also married and have a degree and still going to college. i only think having kids is bad (at any age) if you expect to live off of government assistance all your life, i get medical still, but i dont expect to sit on my butt forever and let someone elses hard earned money take care of my family.

No not at all, I had my first little girl when i was 18 my second when i was 20 and i am expecting my 3rd, people who think that it is bad to have kids at a young age need to grow up. That's just my opinion but i don't undersand how it could be bad

I'm 26 and i have a 2yr old, a 9month old and i'm 16weeks pregnant. I personally think its better to have your kids young, who cares what anyone else thinks. Congratulations on being a mum its the best thing in the world. I plan to have all my kids before i'm 30 and we want 6 :)

No, my best friend has just turned 21 and she has 3 kids, 5,4 and 1 and she wouldnt change anything for the world and they are also great kids, so i dont think it matters how old you are!
