What do you do if your boyfriend wants to have a baby with you and now that he's talked about it you want to have the baby too but you want your parents to be supportive but you know they won't be?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThis is a decision you have to make for yourself. Remember, you're the woman and you're gonna have to be extremely responsible. Your parents s…hould be left out of the equation here. Tell you what though? You can forget about sleeping for the next twenty or so years. A child is no joke, so unless both of you are employed and happily secured, then go for it. Parents will come around later after they hear the child's first words. Hope it goes well.\n. \n. \nLeslie.\n. \n Answer \n. \nAll I can say is wait he might just want to do it cause he feels he is ready, but bringing a baby in the world is a major thing Why don`t you ask him what he thinks of marriage? Why don`t you get married before you think of a baby? \n Answer \n. \nI wouldn't blame your parents! Have either of you heard of the word "marriage?" If you are serious then the two of you should show the maturity you both feel you have and face both sets of parents and tell them you want to get married. Looking gooey-eyed at your parents and simply saying "we wanna baby" shows a great deal of immaturity. Babies are not dolls that you look after for a short time and then put up on a shelf until you want to play "mommy and daddy" again.\n. \nI think both of you should first ask one of your parents close friends who have a baby to come over and look after that baby for 4 days ... that means morning, noon and night! I'll give you 2 days of it and you'll forget about having a baby at such a young age. There is colic, diarrhea, fevers that scare the wits out of you, singing, walking and feeding a baby at all hours of the night. When a baby cries you get up! You will no longer be able to go out with your friends on a whim (you have the baby remember) and before you know it you are going to have your nose plastered against a pane of glass looking at all your friends going by having the fun a 17-year-old should have and a whole lot more fun in the future, not to mention a good education and job. \n. \nYou or your boyfriend have shown no signs of maturity at all. It also appears that both of you feel that your parents should step in if you need a little help. Well girl, sit up and fly right! It will never happen! (MORE)
