How Fast Are Kids Growing up These Days?
When we hear people comment that kids are growing up way too fast these days, it’s no joke anymore. Proof in point is the latest 10 year old to give birth in Northern Colombia.
The name of the 10 year old mother has not been revealed, but we do know that she comes from the indigenous tribe Wayuu. Since the tribe is protected by its own jurisdiction Colombian authorities cannot get involved. The identity of the child’s father is not known at this time, but many believe that the mother and father are married.
A 10 year old giving birth today is possible. Doctors report that they are finding that females are starting to ovulate at much younger ages, but even though a female is ovulating, it does not mean she is ready to give birth. The new Wayuu mother’s baby was delivered through C-section because it was believed her pelvis could not handle a vaginal birth.
