Do you think one should start their family early or later in life? Why do you feel this way?

It's easy and hard at the early stage or later stage. Pro for young parent:energy to chase children, grandparents may still be alive, and can be better in tune to what kids are into. later stage: harder to chase children, probably will have more money, have more wisdom.

Short but to the point. I am 38 and have an eighteen month old and chase after him all day, and hold him as I excercise! Great response.

My husband is 23 and I am 21. We recently had our first child. I think that it's nice that we are young. When they all leave the house, if we have more now, we'll be in our 50's and hopefully retired. I think that it would be nice to spend my golden years with my husband and playing with grandkids. It's also nice because my grandparents get to be great grandparents before they pass on. And being young with kids gives me a chance to talk to those who are older then me about having kids, and how they raised their kids. Also, I think that because I am younger I will be able to relate a little bit better to my kids when it comes to movies, and music.

I think there is no particular time or age when to be a mother. It is the calling of a woman. As long as your matured enough, physically, mentally and financially -- that you would be able to face the responsibilities, and challenges of being a mother.
