Compare and Contrast Twenty Year Olds With and Without Children
Open your mind and think about a twenty year old with a child. Now, think about a twenty year old without a child. These are two different types of people but they can be alike and different at the same time. There are many similarities and differences in being a twenty year old with a child and without.

She needs to get her school work done before class in her time when she’s off work.
