When reading this thread I think about my own kid, what do I want for him. I want him to travel and see the world, discover himself a little before he has a child. To study and be happy in his career so he can make his own money and never need to rely on anyone. For me, I'd def encourage him to wait to have kids. It's not always a negative thing.
You did ask the question so people are giving you an answer, they aren't trying to be offensive.
