Just curious to see what you all think the pros and cons of being a father in your 20s vs your 30s?
Also what are the pros and cons of being a mother in your 20s vs 30s
By this I mean having a baby within those two age groups

I've noticed that it can go one to two ways. A man in his twenties will either be a dynomite father and do everything with his child OR he will be a dead beat who won't want anything to do with his kid because he "isn't ready for a baby".
I don't think age plays a factor in this so much as maturity. My sons biological father wanted nothing to do with our son and he went to court stating that he wasn't ready for a kid and wanted to terminate his rights. He was 23 years old at the time and I was 17. My current boyfriend whom I have been with for 5 years now is a year younger than me and he quite literally jumped on the opportunity of adopting my son and taking care of him as if my son was his own. Not many people would do that because single mothers are looked at as irresponsible and made out to have a ton of baggage. But what my boyfriend did when he didn't have to, even while being so young (he was 17 when he stepped in as my sons father) shows how genuine of a person he is. So like I said, I don't think age has anything to do with it rather than maturity or simply who they are as people.0

Definitely more financial stable and mature in your lower 30s to handle kids , at least for me it was when I had my daughters at 33 , I sometimes wished I was younger having them since they would be done with everything already but I never had a stable income or a girl that would settle down with me. As for women it's better in their mid twenties to have healthy babies and they are more ready than most guys that age too but it's definitely a big responsibility0
