With Age Comes Experience...

This statement was just used in an article speaking of Sarah Jessica Parker and motherhood (click here to take you to the article on modernmom.com). I have to dispute this line a bit.
With kids come experience in the field of children. Not age. Nothing will ever fully prepare you for children until you have them. Not age. Not time. Not career.

Sure, you may be able to give your children more... more life experience lessons, more financially. Who knows! To each their own. Everyone is at a different point in the personal lives at any age.
My feelings; Age and Experience with regards to motherhood is inaccurate.

I am learning daily. My kids teach me daily. I constantly surprise myself; and they constantly surprise me.

Every day is a learning experience. Whether you are 20 or 40.

  1. This is so true.

    Another thing each child is different and just casue it works for one does not necessarily work for the other.
    It is constantly learning and adapting.

  2. Hi there, I've been reading your blog for awhile but haven't had a chance to comment yet.

    I'm a 22-year-old mom whose about to pop with baby #2. I am also the oldest of 6 kids.

    For me, having my child was pretty easy compared to other first-time moms because I had helped raise my brothers and sisters since I was 3 and it didn't take long for me to realize what I did and did not want to happen when it was my turn to raise children of my own.

    So yes, I would agree in that with CHILDREN comes experience! Not to say that I know everything about raising children -- because I don't! =P
