Moms, think back with me for a moment...

Think back to when you first brought home your little bundle of joy. Remember the stress? The exhaustion? The fear of the unknown? Now, do you think you could have handled that at just 14-years-old? A popular author thinks so.

An award-winning novelist told a British magainze that 14-year-old girls are ready to have babies. But, that's not all she said! She also said that at 14 she was competent enough to run a household and that men dictate the age at which women have babies.

As I'm sure you can imagine, this has parents around the world in an uproar.

I want to know what you think about all of this. Post your comments below.
