Nowadays,our generation goes fast, fast in things they do, they think and decide. Look at our surroundings, we can now see some teenage girls that at the age of 14 - 16, they are getting pregnant. They didn't think about the consequences that may happen. They just want what they want. Being a mother is so wonderful but it is accompanied by great responsibility. They should plan it before they would go at serious phase of their lives. This isn't a joke. Be prepare, be ready. Are you ready to become a mother?

It is indeed quite a responsibility to be a mother. Children do grow up very quickly and mothers need to be able and ready to attend their children's needs. Yes, I quite agree, it is important to be prepared and to be ready in order to be a responsible mother.

Well, I've been a mother for ten years now and I really do believe that I was ready to become a mother at the time that my daughter was born. Now, two years prior to my daughter's birth, I had been pregnant and I did end up having a miscarriage. I was really upset about the fact that I lost a child that I had really wanted, but in retrospect, I really don't think that I was ready to be a mother at that time. Being a mother has been the most rewarding role that I've ever had in my life and I realize it really was a gift to me to have a daughter (and later a son).

Hi Kenneth, I'm already a mother and I was 27 when I became one. One thing I can say is that no amount of planning can really prepare one for motherhood. But still it helps a lot if one have a certain level of maturity before having a baby.

I will tell you not even as and adult are women ever ready to be come parents. It sadness me when people just judge teens and not judge as well adults. At any age you will never be ready as a mother nor a father. I'm 24 and I have 2 kids neither were planned but they where very much welcomed and wanted. Just like teens I myself wasn't ready we didn't have a home, and didn't every much money but we made it work. I don't think teens should be parents but things happen. Even when you use protection things can happen still. It's never easy but as a mommy I would do it all over age. My babies are my blessings and I went throw hell some days just to have them. I heard nasty things to say to me and thought about me I would hear them all over again and sit in a hospital over again.

I'm 23, and no, I'm not yet. I know I want kids, but I also know that I wouldn't be a good mother now. I want to enjoy life, travel, go to theatre a lot etc. while I still can and I'm fit enough to do that frequently... and I'm still young. Also, I'm impatient now, and I wouldn't be able to handle a kid correctly. But I know I want one or two, about 5 years later... when I'm hopefully able to provide a sufficient financial and mental background... I have the perfect father-to-be, though, fortunately! :)

I was 18 and married when I had my first baby. Yes it is a huge responsibility and I don't think a 14 or 16 year old is ready for it. They don't realize what they are getting into when their 'having fun' and the consequences are huge. I'm now a grandmother and my kids waited until they were in their 20's to start a family and they were ready!
