    They're Just Never Satisfied.

    I have had to babysit my brother's kids so many times, I will never want children of my own. They're leeches. They want everything you have, and when they have it, it's not enough. Nothing makes them think or feel, they are entirely self-motivated and a complete drain to be...

    I am 23yrs old and have been married for a year now. My husband and I talked about having children before getting married and decided that we would have kids in the future. Since I was a little girl I always knew that I did not want to have any children, I only agreed to having...

    I Never Want To Experience Parenthood

    Since I was 10 I never payed babies or children younger than me any mind. For some reason I knew they existed but weren't important enough to pay any mind. The truth is I didn't have any problem with children until my sister had a kid and I started dating a man with young...

    Sisters-in-law

    I admit, I'm pregnant, but I don't care for children much. Even when I was a child, being around the other kids was tiresome. I'm okay with babies and small children (as long as they're raised right and watched carefully), but older kids (ages 5-12) creep me out. I don't know how...

    For those of you that are fans of The Big Bang

    Theory, I will say that my experience around children is similar to that of Bernadette. I didn't have as many siblings as she did, but I did have little cousins, and there was about 10 of them altogether. Because I was the oldest girl, I had to wrangle them all, which was...

    Not a Breeder

    I know this sounds bad. But I don't like children or babies. I don't hate them, but they are not for me. Being a woman in the US this is against the norm, I guess. When some of my firends learn I don't want to hold their babies, they sometimes are offended. Or some understand...

    Children Make Me Feel Guilty

    I used to be a really spoiled brat. Whenever I look at photographs of me and my brother as kids, my brother is always smiling sweetly and I am, for the most part, frowning or looking at something else besides the camera. I remember that all I cared about was myself, I was selfish...

    My Truth

    It took me a very long time to admit that I truly do not like children. Thankfully I don't have any and now at the age of 39 I realize that I don't want to birth any. Ironically, I'm good with kids and am frequently asked to babysit!! What bothers me is that children these days...

    Ughhh...all the boys in our family are bad.

    My brother is 28 and he's still bad. I was watching my little cousin and I refused to let him eat his candy before dinner. He threw a tantrum like a big one crying, storming around, and stomping. Horrible. In general, I don't have the time or the patience for children. I look on...

    I don't like small children.

    There, I've said it. Why? I find them annoying, cloying, demanding, messy and destructive. I can't talk to them about anything, and cannot stand having to fake being interested in their attempts to communicate with me. It's unfortunate, too, that for some reason, kids like...
