I am sixteen, My boyfriend and I both want a baby. He isn't forcing me to do anything i don't want to do. We have been together 2 and 1/2 years. He had graduated and now has two jobs until he goes to college. I play basketball and run track. I got Honorable mention and all defensive in district for track. I made it to state in track. Everybody thinks that I am this perfect child and thats is the point. I am growing up, but i dont wanna let anybody down. I think by not wanting to let them down i let myself down. I jus wanna know i'm i really to young or ppl intend to think you are to young because everyone says it and treats you like a child even tho you was been raising yourself since you could walk..


P.S. i dont want a future in sports

You will have to care for the baby 24/7 for the first few years; you won't be able to "change your mind" or "take a break" from child rearing. You have many years ahead of you; I think it would be best to finish high school first before you decide you want to bring another life into this world. Please think things through carefully.

Especially if you are still in school. I would recommend graduating and getting a job before you make a decision like this because babies are also VERY expensive. VERY. Raising yourself isn't the same as being responsible for another life. It's very different. Before you make a desicion.... make sure you're okay with growing up completely and not being able to go hangout with your friends or go party or anything. Because you won't be able to do that.

I think you should seek either religious counsel, or if you prefer marriage/relationship counseling. I think there is ALOT more going on here than either you want to admit, or are being allow to admit. You HAVE to be happy with yourself and who you are, when you decide to bring another life into this world. Don't have a child to keep your boyfriend (who I am willing to bet is at least 5 years older than you are). That is the worst possible reason. And as the other stated, it is VERY expensive, VERY VERY VERY demanding of your time, patience, trust, love, caring, skill, etc... There isn't any possible way for someone to prepare completely for a child, there are SO many things that can go wrong. Granted a child is a wonderfully precious gift, but come with an IMMENSE responsibility. It will CHANGE your life forever. I do wish you the best possible life, and if you do decide after very carefully weighing all the pro and cons, go ahead and decide to have a child, then I hope for a healthy beautiful child, but please don't FOR GOD's SAKE get pregnant to keep a boyfriend or think it will make someone stick around.
