I Think Some People Shouldn't Have Kids

    I always think of what Keanu Reed's character

    said in that movie Parenthood. "...you need a license to buy a dog, or drive a car. Hell, you need a license to catch a fish! But they'll let any butt-reaming ******* be a father." Parenting is not hit everyone.

    You Can't Take Care of It

    I joined this group because I think some people can't take care of children, there are so many abused and neglected children in the world. I say if you can't take care of it, don't bring it in the world. I am tired of hearing how Beethoven and so many other geniuses ...

    I hate teen parents. More specifically,

    I hate the *term* teen parent. Teen mom, teen dad. Especially in the context of media glorifying these young parents and how partying is still an option and doing things a regular teen or young adult would normally be able to do. After a baby is born, you are a parent first and...

    I know no one is perfect

    but not everyone should have kids. Doctors and laws should get into parents' IQ, whether they have common sense or not, habits, and salary. Gosh! If one person lives like a pig and raises two kids with the same nasty habits, it's not fair for others to tolerate. Not to mention...

    I would prefer to say "believe"

    rather than "think" because I feel so strongly about this. There are people who simply have no right to bring children into the world. You know this if you were born to them. They're too screwed up to be able to take care of a dependent, vulnerable human being. Sometimes these...

    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.

    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...

    A home without discipline is futile.

    You can't expect a kid to turn out well if you don't teach them the difference between right and wrong. In a way by not teaching the kids that there are consequences, they are the ones who will get more hurt in the long run. When I say discipline I don't mean belts, sticks, or...

    Some People Need To Close Their Legs And Open A Book

    What annoys me about some parents: 1. They're too young and still a baby themselves. They don't know what's best for a child, they can hardly even afford one and relying on a bunch of help from their family. If you're under 18 for the health of humanity you should probably try to...
