Calendar (Date Validation) birthday microcopy interaction ux ui date calendar error message form form validation

Hi Dribbblers!

My UX study for today is about date/calendar entry.

Problem: I’ve noticed birthday entry wherein you are allowed to select years like 2017, 2016, 2015, etc. How on earth would a newly born child would use an app?

Possible Solutions:
1. Remove illogical date options
-The year allowed is up to 1999 only. It’s impossible to register below 18 yrs old.

2. Report errors appropriately
-The error turns red when you try to scroll beyond 1999.

3. Preserve user’s work
-There's no calendar field to tap to enter the date. The calendar selection is already there.

As always, I always look for helpful feedback/questions that could benefit everyone. :)
