If they were preteens at my age they would probably be dropped off in the driveway of the boys home.

No one can prepare you for the changes that happen inside you and externally when you meet your first spawn. Its an awesome and terrifying experience all at once, and it never stops.

When you're older and have kids you coddled them because you know subconsciously that's it for you as far as procreation goes

That's what I'm calling bullshit on. It doesn't matter if its your opinion or someone else's you happen to agree with, its still bullshit.

Best time to do it in my opinion is when you are good at maintaining healthy relationships. If you are the type that doesn't keep in touch with any family members and/or jumps from relationship to relationship it will be difficult. Father/child relationship can as fickle as father/mother. Takes work and a lot of compromising.

I agree Charlie, I don't believe that being an older parent makes you a "helicopter parent".

I didn't have my first till I was 40, my second at 47.
I'm far from being a "helicopter parent", especially compared to some of the 30 somethings I see at my kids schools. My friends that I know that started "late" like I did are pretty much the same as I.
Another difference I see is that I'm more strict/require them to do chores etc. than a lot of their peers with younger parents.

Only saying I agree with the logic do I believe it definitely is a fact? Nope. I do, however think there's allot of truth to it. I also know that I didn't truly express my opinion, or his for that matter, well on this subject. Do I think having kids young as I did is a good idea? Nope. But I do think there are pros to having them early (not as many as having them later)
