Dear BeingGirl Experts,
I think it would be very fun to raise a child. I have started my period so I can get pregnant. Would it really affect my life if I get pregnant at the age of 16?
Since you asked, I think it would be the biggest mistake you will ever make to become pregnant when you have not had the opportunity to finish your own childhood, let alone become an adult. You have a great deal to enjoy as a young person before you become a parent. Children deserve two parents who are adults with goals, accomplishments, and commitments.
Parents need to understand the responsibilities and joys that go with raising a child. I don't believe that you are truly ready for this change of lifestyle.
