- does anyone know how old the youngest parents were?
- A: 1939: Lina Medina of Paurange, Peru gave birth to a 2.7 kg (6.0 lb) baby, Gerardo, by caesarean section on May 14, 1939 in Lima at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days. Her parents, who assumed their daughter had a tumor, took her to a hospital, where she was determined to be seven months pregnant. Although Medina's father was arrested on suspicion of rape, he was later released due to lack of evidence, and the identity of who impregnated Medina was never uncovered. The reason for her precocious fertility was cited to not lie in the ovaries themselves, but to have stemmed from an extraordinary hormonal disorder of pituitary origin, causing her to have regular periods since the age of 3. Later, the doctors discovered that her first period actually occurred when she was eight months old, a lot sooner than her father had reported in the medical reports. scary yeah...
- Which Make Better Parents, the older or younger, survey?
- Q: A few mins ago there was a question about why people judge younger parents. I under stand why, but in the post, the asker basically judged older parents.Now, I am not singling you out, asker, so please dont be offended, just an example.Thing is, questions and posts that imply older parents are better than younger, and vice versa that younger parents are better than older appear here all the time.So, lets clear this up, and please try to avoid the mud slinging...How old are you?Do you have kids? How old are they?Do you think younger parents are better? Why?Do you think older parents are better? Why?
- A: How old are you? I'm 37Do you have kids? How old are they? Yes they are 13, 13, 11 and 8...I had my first (twins) at 23 and my last at 29.I can answer the last two questions with one answer. I don't think either are better than the other, just different. I mean everyone becomes an older parent at some point right? I am 37 which might make me an older parent but I had my first at 23 which at that point made me a young parent. So I guess I have been both a young parent and an older parent.Personally I feel both have a lot to offer and i think starting younger is best because you have the energy to deal with little ones and then as they grow and you grow into an "older parent" you gain the patience and life experience you need to deal with the older kids and yet are still young enough to have fun with them.I don't think starting out as an older parent is the best thing because if you have a child at let's say 35 then you are 50 by the time the child is 15. My oldest are 13 yr old twins, then an 11 yr old and 8 yr old and even at 37 I get tired keeping up with them. Right now it's summer and we are on the go go go and each night I am exhausted. I can't imagine doing this at 50. So in closing I think both younger and older parents have a lot to offer but I think starting out younger is better.
- How does the age of the parents affect how a child is brought up?
- Q: Young parents or old parents, how does this affect the way your child is raised? Is there a prime age for parenting?
- A: Of course it does. Younger people tend to have less patience, time and money on the other hand they usually have more energy and stubbornness. Both have endless amounts of love. People's priorities change as they get older but not their basic values. Young or old it's the values you teach kids that's important not the style in which you teach them. So I think, yes age affects how a child is brought up in terms of parenting style but no, there is not a prime age.
