    I Should Have Never Been Born ...But I'm Glad I Was.

    I come from a broken, chaotic home where two individuals attempted to raise 4 children they couldn't possibly provide for. We were incredibly poor growing up, and moved around living in motels with other family members etc. My mom was a drug addict and my dad was a moron who did...

    I am a step mom to a 7 1/2 year old boy. My husband and I have one 5 year old son together. We have chosen not to have anymore children. We had a few reasons why we are choosing not to have anymore, but one big reason is my step son. His BM has 4 other children. He is the oldest...

    I see many people with kids

    and thinking they shouldn't have kids by the way they don't pay attention to them and let them run wild. I see parents driving and texting in the car with some kids in the back seat. These people don't think of their kids' safety. I hear about people using their kids as a...

    And I'm one!!! My husband & I were married 21

    years ago this week. We told everyone we weren't procreating. No one believed us. Instead they were condescending. "You'll change your mind." "You'll make such great parents." Bullshit. Respect our decisions. Now we're 41 & 42 & happy as clams with no kids.

    I Think Some People Aren't *ready* to Have Children.

    Call me a bleeding heart humanist, but I still hold dear the notion that the vast masses of human mess out have the chance at healing and finding their way. There are some people who most certainly shouldn't ever have children for the child's welfare - paedophiles, sociopaths and...

    If you can't take care of yourself how are you

    suppose to take care of a newborn? Or a toddler? If you can't sustain yourself then how could you feed your hungry children? I'm not saying people can't change there lives but until they do they do no good by bringing a child into their sad, messed up world.

    I agree, although, everybody else

    that agree probably has different views on the subject. Drug addicts and physical abusers are obviously out. Personally, this is why I feel that people should have the option of abortion. If a parent doesn't have the maturity and their priorities in line, then the kid has a...

    Here Is What I Think

    All kids deserve to have loving parents. Married or single , rich or poor, young or old as long as they are good, devoted parents. Children need to feel cherished, respected and loved. It´s very hard to grow up knowing you were unwanted. Being a parent is not mandatory but...

    Ofcourse They Shouldn't But They Do:

    According to me a person who qualifies the following should have kids: 1. Financial security- you can afford a good meal for your kid, education, medical care, shelter, toys... 2. Emotionally stable- you need to be emotional stable, to deal with kids. You need not be perfect...

    I believe that some people should have kids too.
