    I never have loved the idea of having kids

    but it was officially confirmed I never wanted children after my sister had my niece. Hard work. I'd rather focus on myself, children ruin so many opportunities.

    At least I don't think I do.

    We'll see. Some adults baffles me with their lack of compassion and understanding of children though. And by some I mean a lot. There's a complete lack of respect. Okay, so I don't really like being around kids. I'm not good with children, and I don't really know how to act...

    Most children are either malevolent

    and destructive, or annoying and parasitic. I'm not saying it's their fault, just that I would never want to subject myself to that. And imagine what kind of parent I would be if I had kids, Jesus Darwin ****. It would be a nightmare. There's symbiotic relationships in which...

    Nothing frustrates me more

    than being told I will change my mind when I "get old enough" or "meet the right man." These things imply that as an adult I am still not fully capable of making decisions and that the decisions that I will make in the future are not my own, that they'll be based on a man in my...

    Doing The World A Favor

       I have never liked kids, most of my family thinks I love kids. I would be really embarrassed if they found out some how that I don't. I don't wanna be judged just because I'm not like most women in the world who want kids right off the bat. Half the reason why I stayed a...

    My aunt is pregnant and I'm

    Kids are annoying, loud,

    messy, expensive, and time-consuming. Those are all things I don't like to deal with. Therefore, I don't want kids. Not to mention I'm bad at understanding what they want and I'm bad at entertaining them. I will be the first to admit the fact that I'm too selfish for kids. I...

    The Reason Most People Have Kids

    The main reason I don't want kids is because most young women I know (including my own mother) were scared to be alone got knocked up by the first guy that showed them attention and got married or stayed together for it. Years down the line they're miserable hate each other even...

    I tried to like kids.

    I truly did. I went into teaching and obtained a Master’s degree, along with several teaching and babysitting positions in different grade levels, to be better with kids and connect with them. To create a world of more respectful, literate, and thoughtful children. I also...

    My mom let my baby sister be my birth control.

    My little patience and need for control really messed me up. Over the past two years I've really mellowed out though. I still don't want kids, but if I had them, I might actually have the patience for them here in a few more years. I think it would be a beautiful experience...

    I'm pretty sure if I don't want them by now,

    I will never want children. Hell, I can barely stay on top of my two cats. I typically won't date someone with kids, but it's not necessarily a deal breaker unless there is more than two of them still living at home.

    my father in law informed us

    that he's expecting grandkids, jokingly of course. but I'm content with no kids at all. I can sleep in, I don't get judged for my parenting choices, and over all I enjoy being able to go to Wal-Mart at 11 o'clock at night.

    The Top 10 Reasons....

    10. I've got no motherly instinct. I've never felt it at all, even when around babies. I don't see the facination. 9. Screaming and whining just grate on my nerves. 8. Pain of childbirth? No thanks. Stretching out that area down there? No thanks. Chance of ripping...

    I don't want kids, because honestly.

    I'm too selfish, I wouldn't want a kid to have to grow up with ME being the parent. And I'm just really bad with kids. So.

    and never will. I am not a children person can not stand kids. But what annoys me sooo much is when people say " you're still young you'll have them one day." Well no I won't because I don't want them. Just because I'm a girl and have a boyfriend and might get married one day...

    I don't even like girls enough to marry one,

    and I'm not going to make a baby with someone I'm not married to, I don't like kids that much either. So I guess that settles it.

    It is not, I repeat, NOT selfish to not want

    kids. It is your choice and your life. People need to quit acting as if the world is going to end if you choose not to have children. What people need to do is mind their own damn business. Also, what people need to stop saying is, "You'll change your mind when you get older" or...

    I'm tired of all these mombies running around

    acting like women who aren't reproducing, are the most selfish people on the planet. Exactly how is it selfish to not want kids? Neither women who have kids nor the ones that don't aren't doing the world any favors so why does it matter? Also, I just plain don't like children...

    You know what really bothers me?

    When people ask me why I don't want kids and I tell them it's because I don't like them, they come back with "you were a kid once." Seriously, what's your point? Just because I was a kid once doesn't mean I have to like kids. That's stupid. I can't handle them. They're too...

    and a complete waste of time and money, as well as the entitled mommies that think reproducing makes them special. The world is already overpopulated. I plan on living my own life to its fullest instead. I only have one life and I won't waste it on a whining bundle of germs that...

    Manipulation does not work on people

    who don't want kids. Parents who do it to their own kids, are horrible parents. Who the **** gave them the right to do such a thing? They do it because their kids are not giving them what they want so those parents are trying to make their own kids feel bad about themselves and...

    Something that grinds my gears is

    when people tell me I will change my mind. I really doubt I will. Having a kid would involve me to have sexual relations with a male, and I really don't want to do that. *sigh* I sometimes feel like people don't respect my Asexuality.

    I Still Don't Want Kids.

    I was only a kid, around 10 years old, when my 16 year old sister, Jamie, had her first baby (Nathan). Then my mom said to me, "Don't be like your sister." I remember thinking, "Don't worry, I won't." A few years later I was in high school and saw so many girls who were getting...
