having kids

My daughter's subject teacher advised the students not to just focus on studies when they are in college but to look out for potential boyfriends. I advise the upper secondary students to do that but did not realise that this teacher dished out her advice to the lower secondary as well.

Anyway, when daughter informed me, I replied that was the reason I "quickly" married because I wanted to have kids. She retorted, " You married in the nick of time" .I couldn't help but secretly smiled at her interpretation.

I am thankful I am blessed with 2 kids despite my late start.

  • I am surprised to hear that this is part of the teaching in school. :)

    When my daughter started a relationship when she just turned 16, I tried to discourage her. I have not met the boy then but my concern was she was too young. Two and a half years on, in different unis, they are still together. My son who is going on 21 is going out with a girl whom he met at uni and I still think he is too young.

    I feel that when they are out in the working world, they will meet more people from different walks of life.

    I too married quite late. :)

  • wonda, you are now blessed with one!

    judy, it is not part of the teaching. The teacher was just giving her advice.

  • In my church school, we don't encourage kids to think about this subject yet when they are still schooling. When our schoolgirls started working, we prayed that God would send a partner for them and He did! God sent one non-believer who became a Christian and married "A" and they have a son now. Both are serving the Lord faithfully. Then when A's sister graduated from college and started working, God sent another non-believer - this time, her colleague, who also became a believer. They got married two years ago and are serving the Lord too. Before marriage and while dating, my pastor's counselled both couples. Always seek the will of God. I know what's like when I am being unequally yoked to a non-believer, though he is a good man. We are still praying for my husband's salvation.

  • Oh, there is nothing wrong if they happen to meet someone they like in college. But just be friends first. Personally, I wouldn't encourage my son to look out for potential girlfriend while in college.

  • I wouldn't 'encourage' a college student to look for a relationship, because if his/her grades drop after being in a relationship, he/she may blame me. I wouldn't 'discourage' either, cos for some, it's just in their grain.
