Energy vs finances
There are both pros and cons to having kids young and later in life, says this mom.
I am a young mommy, I was only 20 when my son and daughter were born.  To top it all, on my 21st birthday I went to a club to celebrate my birthday, and the bouncer would not let me in because I had to be 18 to get into the club!

So when people see me they always comment on how young I look, which people say I should take as a compliment, but I don't.

I find the teachers don't take me seriously, as I still look like a child to them.

But I really love being a young parent.  My mother was in her late 30's when she had me, and my brother was 10 years older than me, so we didn't have a really good relationship.
I feel that I have a super relationship with my kids.
