I’m not saying this because I’m young.
Your parents’ kneejerk reaction may be to say, “You’re only saying this because you are young. You’ll change your mind when you are older.” But they are thinking you’re the same age they were when they made the decision to have kids. And, as people are having children older now, that’s probably not true. My mom tries to say this to me and I have to remind her, “I’m 32…I’m not a child.” By the time your parents were 32, they probably had 10-year-old children. Point is, they can’t use the argument that you’re “just young” because you probably aren’t that young after all.
