Would you have children at 60 plus?

I think for me it would be too old. A lot of couples in there 60 plus are having children, They did not want to put their career on hold. They have children later in life.For me, it is a no! I am 50 waiting for grandchildren.With grandchildren, I can give them back when I am older couples have more health problems too.Caring for a child is a big responded ability. I say to those 60 plus couples who do want children look it to the statics and research. I say kudos to those lucky couples who do it!!

I have grandchildren already and am only too glad to give them back to their parents! No I would not want to take on a small child at this stage of life, not unless it was a dire emergency, in which case, of course, I would do it. Thankfully, I still have my health and strength at present.

I have already turned 66 and I don't see myself looking after any more children. I love my children, but they are not willing to look after any babies, so as much as I would like to have grandchildren, I don't see my children willing to give me any, unfortunately.

Just think, you'd be 70 when they are 10... 78 before they are actually an adult and allowed to stand on their own two feet.
