i dont agree with this at all. im a 20 year old and have got a 1 year old boy. so i had him when i was 19. and i can say he is very well looked after and im with him all the time careing for him, i think it is wrong that people judge this by age as it is not about age. i knew when i was ready to have my baby and other people are probly the same. just because we are young dont mean we can not look after are children. and like a lot of people say we have a lot of energy for them and when they are older can enjoy life and if r children have kids we can have time with them. my freinds my age have got kids and they do a great job to. im not even saying older people aint good mums but its not age it if ur ready for a baby and can cope and want to be a mum.

i thik that is crap i do not think your age is what makes a good mother i am 24 and i have 2 kids a 4 year old and a 2 year old and i enjoy the fact that when my kids want to run and play that i can still keep up with them and when they are grwon and have kids that i will be young enough to enjoy my grankids again i do not think age makes you the mom you ar i would not recommend it for a 15 or 16 year old but just because they are that young does not mean they want be a better mom than somone 40 ithink t all depends on the person and the kina mom they want to be and the life they want for there kids and how much they care i consider my self a great mom and i am young but i know my kids come first so saying older moms are better is bull sh.. age does not make you a mom

its a load of crap, its not about age its about the individual! i had my son at 17 and i can honestly say im a fantastic mum! i know old mums that hit their kids and young mums that are fantastic its not about age one bit its about maturity, i dont feel 18 i feel about 35 whereas others my age are horrible mums i know im just as good if not better than some older mums! that shouldnt even be a debate because as i said its about the individual, no1 should judge people by age group thats ridiculous!

soory but i do not agree its a persons own choosing as i am only 23 and have 4 kids the way i see it is when they are older i can have my life and enjoy it because i will still be young enuff and if my kids have kids i will also be young enuff to enjoy my grandkids

I think each side has it's pros and cons. I'm happy with my decision and I think thats all that matters as long as an individual is happy with thier decision
