What kind of trend does this show our youth? Having a baby is a wonderful experence. Can only rich people do it without working 2 jobs or living with family for help?

Single people have been having kids a really long time. It's not a new thing that's inspired by celebrities. People do it all the time on one salary. You just have to know your limits, your needs vs your wants and have the determination to make it work.

I am sure there are many self-suficent single moms out there. Sure, it is tough to be raising a child by yourself, and it helps to have support. Many child that grow up in single parent homes become wonderful, law-abiding, self-sustaining citizens. There is no rule that says a home must have two parents. It's basically boiled down to nature vs nuture.

I am lucky, I am able to bring up my daughters without having a job, but I get help from the government and their father, plus I am good with money. I do get your point though, it is a bad example, but then they are just human like all of us and we can't always plan our lives to work out perfectly.

It is all over, the celebrity is just getting the attention. There are alot of women that are choosing to have babies without a partner. The family is being threatened as the norm. Children are a gift and we owe them a family structure in a chaotic world that we all live in. Too bad it is shown as an ok thing by a celebrity when so many blindly follow their example.

I'm afraid that is the case. And I don't believe money always allows them to do a very good job of it. (Britney Spears)
