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.
