Even as a full-fledged adult of 33, with a hands-on husband, I was surprised at how hard being a new mom sometimes seemed when my son was born. I can’t imagine doing it as a teenager… But I, and millions of others, will get another chance to experience it vicariously thanks to

I was over 40 before I felt sensible enough to care for a child!! Having said that one, of my distant cousins had her first child at 18 and seems to be coping well.
