Being a young mother has many more benefits than you imagine. Read this article and you will know what I am talking about.
It’s Saturday night and no, I’m not in a bar enjoying myself with friends, or dancing to the latest trendy song as surely many women my age are doing. On the contrary, I find 2 little ones, one on my lap playing with a stuffed animal and the other sitting next to me while enjoying reading a book that he found this afternoon. I was a young mother, very young (under my decision, being married and fully aware of what it means to start a family) and I am eternally grateful for it because it has allowed me:
My first child was born when I was 21 years old and had been married for 2 years. The energy I have at that time allowed me to manage my sleepless nights in a good way, playing on the floor, running from one place to another (garden, activities, classes and many other projects that I dedicate myself to), taking diapers, fighting with tantrums, meetings and many other occupations without suffering great exhaustion, because as the saying goes “youth, divine treasure.”
I had enough time to plan my second child
I had 8 years to plan my second son, before the biological clock began to give the first signals to speed up the process. Therefore, it was a conscientious decision, taken and planned together, without any pressure.
When they are adults, I will not be an old woman yet
When my children are of age, I will only be in my forties. So there will still be time to dedicate myself to doing activities of my interest, traveling or if they have decided to be young parents, I will also be able to enjoy my grandchildren without complications.
Less risk of congenital diseases
The ideal time to have a child is between 20 and 30 years old, physiologically speaking. Therefore, the risk of complications in pregnancy or congenital diseases of the baby are considerably lower than in the case of being a mother after 30.
Language, electronic devices and other aspects of this type will be easier to understand, since the generation gap that separates us is not excessive and allows us to maintain the same type of knowledge of how to do things.
Less, but best friends
When you have young children, it is very difficult to reconcile times with those friends who have not yet become parents, because life works differently.
For this reason, almost as if by magic, one day you wake up and realize that you have few, but very good friends. That they are able to understand that the rhythm of life that you lead many times does not allow you to be present as before, but they are looking for ways to adapt and maintain a close friendship relationship over time.
Without a doubt, if I were given the choice again, I would not hesitate to be a young mother. The benefits of being one have exceeded each and every one of my expectations.
