    Wait until you graduate from uni then start a family. By then at least you'll have good employment prospects to get a job and sort yourself out financially. Don't think about what others are doing..you will thank yourself years from now that you went to university and graduated with high honours and now you can afford to look after a family of your own rather than going a having a child first and realising how everything else (including studying) is actually quite difficult to manage afterwards.

    There was a similar thread on this. Choose your options wisely.

    Please speak to a sensible, responsible adult, and then continue with your life, finish uni, and growing up, and then consider parenthood

    There's a high chance you both won't get into the same uni and you'll have to drop out or go part time if they'll let you. My friend had a baby in college and had to drop out, now she has no a-levels and 3 kids (2 are twins) at 19, living in a council house.

    I'm afraid that any kids you have will start at 0. For you to have a kid at 17 we are going to have to improve our cloning abilities.

    If you really want one go for it.

    But there's a 100% chance you will regret it. My elder brother had a baby at 15, and it was ****ing hard. They survived, yeah, but only because my mum pulled them through. If your parents aren't willing to look after the baby, provide for it (cause you can't while at uni lols, also think of accommodation there!) then it's down to your mum.

    She's raised her kids, why should she be raising yours as well? My advice is wait until after uni, but I can't convince you probably.

    Go on then, and in a couple of years you'll make another thread 'HELP, funding for single parents while at uni' and I will kindly exit the page.

    At least wait till after uni, you are so young. Go out and enjoy life a bit first, it is not cheap to raise a child.

    One wonders how many people on this thread have children. Probably not that many. It amazes me then that you can speak with such authority.


    Perhaps balanced advice would be more useful. You have to make your own choices afterall.

    Having a son or a daughter is pretty much the best thing you can do ever. It's so much more satisfying that the best career or going to the best university. Seeing a small life grow and learn things is so brilliant, so fantastic, so unique that it changes your perspective on everything.

    My sister had a baby at 18, she went to uni and graduated with a 2:1 in law. It can be done. You are entitled to child benefit and a childcare grant. Both are worth several thousand pounds a year.

    On the other hand, because children are so wonderful they deserve a stable family life and a safe environment to grow up in. It is difficult to provide this at 17, particularly when you're not married so you have no idea where your relationship will be in 10 years. This is going to sound harsh but in 10-years your relationship will almost certainly have broken up and you will still have a 10-year old. You may stay together forever, childhood sweethearts do happen but you probably shouldn't bet the stability of son's or daughter's childhoods on it.


    Best of luck,

    WOW! This piece of artwork is certainly unique. How long did it take you to make this?
