My first son was born when I was 19, while I was a sophomore in College. By the time I graduated, I had two toddlers! In my culture, having two kids as a teenager was unconventional, and unacceptable!!!
Today, my two sons are adults, in their late 20's, still single and trying to establish their careers. Since I had them at a very young age, they are much older than the children of my contemporaries. When my sons graduated from college, my friends were so envious that I was done with tuition fees and that I wouldn't have to worry about them as if I was free from parenthood. A friend who had her first baby when we were in our 40s asked me once, "when will the worrying end?" I reassured her by saying, "I hate to break it to you, it never does!"
