I am 23 with two kids, 1 and 2 yrs old. I didn't get to go to college, I don't regret anything I've done I just wonder how things would have been had I not had my boys so young, does any one feel the same way?

I concieved my first child at 19 and he turned out to be my angel.My mother past 1 month after he was born if he wasn't here i probably would have been in a crazy ward or something. I had to live for my son. in 2005 i got married,had another child am still not complete with my education and have no job. you don't have it worst than i. Children are blessings from God and through them you will become a stronger womanand complete what you need to in due time. Start with one class at a time{ its amazing how i can give advice but need to start taking my own to heart}

i am 28 with no kids...i however wonder how my life would be different had my girlfriend really been pregnant back when i was 21...my son or daughter would now be about 7 years old... i also dont have any regrets, just wonders about what might have been... the butterfly effect movie is a good movie that explores how 1 little change in life alters everything...if you havent seen it...i strongly recommend it...

I had my son when I was 20. It was a year or two before I started to regret not finishing college and not doing more with my life. Onc eyou have kids, life gets so much harder and you cannot always do what you need to make yourself happy.

now adays when your kids are older and settled in school you might be able to go to college, i am now at home and done more exams at home in the last 12 months than when i was at school. the oppertunitys people have today is much better.

I'm 22 with a little girl. I wouldn't change a thing. I've been with my husband for six years, married for 3. We new it was time. She's six months old and my life only gets better with each passing day and it's because she's in it. I don't think I've even thought about a 'what if' since I've had her. To me, there is no 'what if'. I was put on this earth to be a mommy--to be my little girl's mommy so that's what I'm doing with my life! I love every second of it!
