Too Old To Parent?
According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the birthrate for women 45 and over more than doubled between 1990 and 2002. It may be more the norm for women to become moms at forty, but at what age do you draw the line? Should women have babies after 50, or even at 60? Is there such a thing as being too old to parent? Is it better to have children later in life or is it unfair to the kids? Tune in and tell us what you think by calling 1-877-CN8-LIVE or by clicking here.
