Do you think age has anything to do with how good of a mother you are?

    No way. A girl starts her menstrual, which is when she is ready to produce offspring, at the age of 9-13. Girls don't play with baby dolls for no reason. It is something that is inside of all women (no pun intended). Even though if I had a daughter if she got pregnant any earlier than 25 I'd whoop her ass.

    I had my first baby at 18 and my 2nd at 20.

    I'll be conceited/vain/boastful and proud and say that I'm a badass momma.

    Every single breath I take, every single sound that penetrates the tiny little hairs within my ears, every syllable spoken by or to my children it is filtrated through me.

    Always has been and always will be.

    It's whether or not you truly want to be a mother and recognize what you have and what you want and will do with it.

    Your maturity level, ability to deal with stress, ability to multitask, and how much attention and care you are willing to give your child is how well of a mother you are I believe. Age doesn't mean a thing I don't think. Just make the child the main focus of you're life and don't worry about anything else.

    I can't speak for others, but it made a difference in me.  I married at 19 and had my first child when I was 30.  No way was I ready for a child before that.  I feel at 30 I was more willing to give of myself, and share my life than I was when I was 19.

    Until the age of 26, I didn't even want children then in the blink of an eye it changed and I was ready--and loved every minute of it--and miss it still, 6 years after my youngest married and moved on.

    in almost all cases it does. experience and living are the two best ways to become good at anything. 100's of years ago, females learned about being a mother from a very young age but these days it isn't so true. no one can say the exact age but if your in your teens, there is a better chance of failing then if your an adult.
