Many women may feel a strong maternal instinct kicking in in their early 20s if not sooner. If you are having maternal cravings but are not yet ready for a child, here are some ways to give your time to those in need. Here are three tips to help young women with strong maternal instincts let loose that nurturing side once and for all.
Get a kitten or puppy. There's something about nurturing and caring for a young kitten or puppy that satisfies my maternal instincts to the core. I recently got a Miniature Dachshund puppy named Honey and she has quickly become my world. Nothing is too much for the puppy. I have had blast training, cuddling and playing with her. The large responsibility of having a puppy also puts into perspective the amount of time that being a caregiver takes, from feeding, exercise, playing and training. I am not ready for a child, but my puppy has provided me a companion that depends on me 100% for care. Having a puppy has been the best "practice" for Motherhood yet.
