    So I’m 17 have a job I have a boyfriend but I’m so like lonely I see him only fridays and I feel like I need something that’s like mine and I just feel like it would be good for me?
    And I know everyone’s probably thinking I’m too young I’m very mature for my age and I know a lot of mothers that are young and good parents
    Does anyone else feel the same
    Is this normal

    I think it's normal for girls and women of our age to want a baby as it's instinct! I would say though that with having a baby comes the financial and social burdens that a 17 year old in our society may not be ready for but if you feel ready then there is nobody stopping you! Just make sure it's something you and your partner both want and be ready to deal with everything that comes with having a baby e.g have discussions about what it would mean for all your relationships/ your mental wellbeing and continuing education etc. At the end of the day it's your choice as an individual and you must do what's right for you which could mean having a baby and that could also include waiting for a different time in your life X

    it's normal to feel this way if you feel you're missing purpose or not getting enough out of your relationship but trust everyone who's saying it's not a good idea at all. finish your education, get a steady career and a long term partner before you think about children

    'I have no meaning'- What do you mean by that?

    Well look forward 10 years into the future and think about an ideal, obtainable goal where you would like to be at then. One of your many purposes would be to go on and achieve that goal and you should do anything thing you can now to help get you there.

    Also, do things you enjoy doing! If you don't have much of that right now try to gain some new hobbies. You may gain some new friends in the process which in the future would mean you wouldn't be lonely.

    Who is going to raise the baby for you at 17? If you lose your job and your bf slides out, would you become a burden to society as a single mother?

    It is understandable for some people to have access to public support, but don't bring a kid to this world when you probably are not grown enough or financially stable enough to take care of yourself. Don't become a victim of the system.

    I'd recommend that you get a life before creating one.
