In brief: Raising

Raising a child is one of the most challenging and difficult tasks you can do.
They will mess up your house, keep you sleep deprived and take you to the brink each and every day. Since you are still very young, it would most likely be in your best interest and the best interests of your future children to take this time for yourself and work on your issues. Your problems with a violent temper could be a very dangerous situation for a child and you definitely will want to have other coping strategies in place. If you are not already under the care of a psychiatrist and a therapist, you should do so. Discuss your desires to have children with them and allow them to help you develop positive coping strategies. Good luck!
