It seems that the age that people are having kids is getting younger and younger. I think it's wrong. There's this girl in my sister's school that has 6 kids and shes only 16. Theres also 10 year olds that are pregnant! I was born when my dad was 24. I'm 26 and I haven't had a kid yet. I'm currently married. How old were you when u had your first kid, and what age do you think people are too young to have kids at, I think you should be about 19 Atleast.

you don't need to worry that u haven't got a baby yet 'coz i'm also 28 now & just got married last yr & still no baby. many said that it's still safe to give birth at early 30's or as long as you are healthy & don't have any uterus problem. i haven't let an OB monitoring or pre-pregnancy check yet but planning for the 2007 for sure... i wish you the best too! for that 10 yrs old being pregnant might be so risky & for sure not ready for parenthood. our worries also for the kid's future & mother's health then.

I think 16 is way too young, let alone 10! I was 31, but that's because we were unable to have children naturally and I needed treatment. I think mid to late 20s is a good time and 40 and above is too late! Too many complications.

I was 19 when my son was born. Then I had my daughter when I was 29. I don't think I was really mature enough when I had my son. 16 is WAY too young to have a baby!
