I'd say 25-30.
You're old enough by then to have lived your own life a bit and get partying or career-building out of the way (whichever is your first priority), but (if you're a woman) still young enough to bear more than one child, if you choose to.
I don't like when people say, "Young enough to still be able to keep up with a child." I know parents who had children very late in life, and they were able to "keep up" just fine. Assuming that older parents are confined to rocking chairs after 35 is just stupid and outdated.
No younger than 25
In a biological perspective: 15 - 34 years of age.
In an ethical perspective: 22-34 years of age (after you pass the three written exams, pay the filiing fee, take a public course on baby-rearing, and get physically evaluated).
I agree with those who said about 25.
I'd like to say 21 or 22 but society's changed so it's no longer the days of "get married and start a family right away". We can't afford to do that in this economy and more people either want or have to go to college to make a decent living first.
about 25 but then again Im almost 30 and still have no kids... love kids to death but I guess its not my time to have any :)
You also have to make sure that if you are doing this to start a family that you are doing this for all the right reasons and with the right person otherwise the kid ends up paying for your mistakes
Mid-thirties after education and have some experience in a career, maybe married but buying a house. I think having a home is the most important requirement in knowing you're ready to commit to the idea of bringing a life into the world. Today's women can do the single parent with a higher degree of success than any other time in history.
35 is good.
at the age both man and the woman are ready "but dont keep it too late"
25 and on.
Now a days, people focus on their career first. The majority of people start having kids later then what it used to be before.
when you can afford it and rely on the govt to pay you a benefit
But make sure you have a stable life and household.
I didn't have my kid till I was 25. I wish I would have had him earlier maybe 22 the younger you are the easier it is to keep up with them. But not everyone is mature enough to have a child that young so it depends on your personality I suppose.
25 to 30 its right age
depends if its a guy i say wait til your 30 a women 25 or over
Whatever age you are when you:
Are buying a home because you,
Graduate college & in a,
I didnt not do this and it has been hard, its do-able but hard.
