At What Age to Stop Having Children??


hey guys!

Just curious as to what you all think..

at what age do you think people should stop having children??

Is it different for the male or female?

should you be considerate for your children because you don't want to be too old for them not to be able to enjoy their parents as much as a younger family? Or they having to care for their parents at younger age.

I'm just asking for personal opinions.

I'm rather young, but my OH is MUCH older than me. I want a big family and we are on baby number two... But curious if I should stop at 2 or if I will be able to continue for possible baby # 3 and/ or 4 .

so at what age do you guys think people should stop trying to conceive?

Thank You!!

Thank you.

I know all personal opinions on the matter are different, was just curious of what everyone's personal opinion was of it.

I'm going to be 37 when this baby comes and that is definately old enough for me. This baby will be my last... I don't want to be a older mum to a newborn.

For me, 35, but I would prefer to have stopped before that...

That's just my personal preference though, not suggesting anyone else should do the same thing x

Thanks all!

I am 24 but OH is 41... So was trying to see how many more I can get out of him before he get's to an age that seems too much for children. Thanks all!

I think what ever age is fine. As long as you still care for them when you are older. Mum had me (1st kid) age 24, and her 7th (last) at age 40, and now she's 51 and is totally over motherhood, Dad left and is in another country, mum has a new bf and doesnt have much time at all for the youngest siblings. She wanted a baby at 40 but not a 10 year old at 50. Such a shame because they dont deserve it.

Same goes for some one 'too young', have a baby if you want, but look after it, don't palm it off onto its grandparents so you can go partying!

So I think age doesn't matter, as long as you care for your child the rest of your life, cos thats what a parent does.

I was 20 when married, 21 when having 1st child, bit of a shock, but I will be 27 having my 3rd child and loving it, don't regret having children young!
