    I am not really for or against.

    I both kinda dislike those who can be nothing but judgemental towards parents and kids. Stop complaining, saying **** in justification, you dont want to have kids, alright. But also those who have and judge those who dont. LOL, i dont want to be part of any of that really. haha...

    Im 17 and decided I want to adopt a toddler,

    some people say Im too young for this desicion, but I think girls my age already have kids so I can decide. Its not like Im adopting now, if I change maybe I will have children of my own, but I doubt it.

    ...but My Boyfriend Does

    H ey so I'm really kind of in need of some perspective/advice. Basically, I met this guy and we got involved recently. I have never felt so compatible with anyone – from the most profound things like what we value in life, and they way we relate to people, to the smallest...

    My wife keeps changing her mind about wanting

    kids. She knows I would like to but she is the busiest person we know and she feels that kids would change her life too drastically. I know she would be a great mom but I also know that it would be very hard for her to give up her lifestyle and she might regret it. It's kind...

    Just Not Sure

    Well, I am 22 and I am not sure if I want kids.  I just feel so pressured into "wanting" to have kids, that I just feel that much more unsure.  At this point in my life, I just can't see having kids.  I don't know if this is because I am still young, or...

    And then DIE?! And leave them to cope in the world without you? Egads!! No! I want everything to tie up nicely when I go and not have to worry if my children have cleaned their ears and brushed their teeth two weeks after im gone. No. I can't even handle that thought. And I have...

    I Feel Abnormal

    I personally don't. I don't feel like I'd enjoy

    raising kids. The thought of changing diapers is pretty repulsive, and I don't think I'd make a good mother; I don't think I would be as doting or loving as a proverbial "good mother." Plus, the pain of childbirth is just too much to think about; I know mothers say you forget...

    I don't want kids because I don't want kids. Age, race, gender, etc has nothing to do with it. It's not something I want to put my mind and body through. Because I don't have to.

    I feel like people don't have children because they have a burning passion for them. It seems like they have them just because they think that's what they're supposed to do.
