Girls who are not breastfed as babies or who grow up without a father are likely to have their own children earlier, according to a long-term study of more than 4, women across the UK. The researchers looked at four kinds of dirsuption that might affect the family lives of young girls and found that each one brought forward the age at which they first became pregnant by six months on average. However, he stressed that children could rise above problems during their upbringing. The study found that even after controlling for major differences such as the parents' income and social class, four factors during upbringing had an impact on the age at which a woman had her first child: whether she was breastfed; how involved her parents were in her upbringing; whether her father was present; and whether her parents moved house regularly. The key message, said Nettle, is that what happens to children early on in their lives is hugely influential. If you get girls when they're 14 or 15 and say, 'Hey girls don't have babies young', it may not do a lot at that point if, in fact, there have been more influential events much earlier in their lives that set them on a path towards a desire to have short time horizons and have babies young.

November 10, Claudia Colimoro still remembers the day she met Rosa, a year-old girl sent to the shelter she runs after being sold into sex slavery twice and getting pregnant for the second time. Rosa—not her real name—is one of hundreds of thousands of teens and pre-teens who get pregnant each year in Mexico, a worsening problem caused by minors having unprotected sex at an early age, but also by horrific violence against women and girls. Colimoro runs a shelter called Casa Mercedes in Mexico City that takes in pregnant girls with nowhere else to go, pays for their education and helps them raise their babies if they decide to keep them. Rosa was not yet a teenager when she arrived at Casa Mercedes, but she had already been sold into prostitution twice by her own mother. Her family comes from Puebla, in central Mexico, a state with a picturesque colonial capital that belies a much darker side: it is also home to networks of human traffickers who force women and girls into prostitution.
