Solange speaks on being a teen parent and offers advice for other teen parents such as Jamie Lynn Spears:

Knowles, now 21, welcomed son Daniel in 2004 at the age of 18 (she split with husband, former football player Daniel Smith, after the baby was born).

“I’m sure a lot of people perceived that I was gonna be a young, irresponsible mom. I think that there are some moms who are 35 who are just as irresponsible. You just have to make the best decisions for you. You have to decide what’s best for you. Who are we to say what’s right and wrong for a person?”

To focus on raising her son, Knowles said she “moved to the country for a year” without any nannies or babysitters. “My parents lived on a whole opposite part of the world. My son has been my focus ever since the day he was born. He’s been the light of my life, the inspiration behind everything.”

Good for her.

    Good for her. But what about the other teenage mothers that can’t MOVE TO THE COUNTRY and know they have stacks on deck to pay the bills. That should be her main focus, she didn’t really have a career, what else would she be doing. (Well she could have been a Brittney Spears, but I digress)..what about the teenage mothers, who have no father involved..go to school, work, and take care of their child. They really deserve praise for taking responsiblity. In a world where were I think,”It is so easy to take the easy way out.”

    WHATEVER, thank you for saying that. When you got stacks like the Knowles family it’s easier than a mfr to say all that. she has been pushed on the public and got acting jobs and singing opps that a proverbial Fantasia type did not get. Rich people need to realize that they can’t advise people who have nothing. At least not without some thought.

    @Lauren…isn’t he the palest little thing ever! He’s a cutie though. I want to bite him! :)

    im sorry but in 08 young moms are nothing NEW. hell it wasnt new in 1978. good job solo, age aside if u birth it take care of it.

    @rusty eagle…I cosign with that! When you have money to start off with, it makes certain situations a little easier than it would be for a regular person. But for the little bit we have seen of her and her son, she seems to be a good little mom.
