Solange Knowles had her son Daniel in 2004 when she was 18, and knows all about the challenges that come with being a teen mother. Knowles, 21, recently talked to Us Weekly about how she focused on raising her son, and also had some words of wisdom for pregnant 17-year old Jamie Lynn Spears.
“I’m sure a lot of people perceived that I was gonna be a young, irresponsible mom, [but] I think that there are some moms who are 35 who are just as irresponsible.” 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,” she said. “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.”
What kind of advice did she give to Jamie Lynn?
“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?”
