There are a lot of factors that go into anything being the right decision for you. Like do you want to go on in schooling? Do you want to establish a career? How important to you is your parents support in raising the child? At almost 16, you have a lot left ahead of you. Do you want to have a child with you? Can you realistically envision the sort of time and money commitment that a child will mean for you?

These are all things that you need to consider. Below are links to some threads in which folks go over the sorts of issues and problems that having a baby relatively young can bring up. It's worth a read over them. Good luck.

I Want A Baby NOW!!!

Thanks for replying...I'm finishing year 10 by july and after i have the baby i think i will do year 11 and 12 at a tafe (with a child care) part time or casual. Then eventually i will study at uni when she/he starts school. I have lived and coped with out my parents before so if they choose it to be that way i shall do fine my boy is extremly supportive and is getting a job (i already have one) and we will be saving all our money now to go towards the baby.

i read those acticles and i thought over my plans and i think that it'l b fine
thanks so much
