I Think Some People Shouldn't Have Kids

    Me. I shouldn't have kids.

    My upbringing left me walking the streets and getting into trouble, all types of dudes trying to get a piece of this *** since puberty hit. My kid would be on lockdown. I'd monitor every electronic device I allow and screen all their friends and activities. I would track their...

    before saying grace.She asked, "Do you think dad doesn't really care for us anymore?"He responded candidly, "I guess. No text. No calls. I still miss him though".I sighed. "Do you wanna have him in our home?"He curtly said, "I don't want to be black and blue again".She asked...

    One of the Two Biggest Mistakes of My Life

    If you have a bunch of children,

    you don't have any clue on how to raise them, then all you are accomplishing is creating future psychology patients. Anyone can have sex and create a child, but it takes a real good person to raise that child.

    hyper, talkative girl and I love to be happy whenever I can. I love spending time with my friends or siblings, but I hate being with my mum. She was a very good mother before that, always being at home with us, taking us out for shopping or to the arcade, cooking for us daily...

    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...

    Many, many years ago my dad said to me,

    "They take some of the worst people in the world and turn them into parents." His point was to be sympathetic and understanding, not judgmental. I've tried to always remember that.

    I can name quite a few people in my area

    My sister should've never had children.

    She just locks herself in her bedroom with her new boyfriend of the week, she pays no attention to them, she doesn't deserve to be called a mother. My heart breaks daily for my 4 nieces and nephews.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I believe strongly that people with unresolved

    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...

    I use to be against abortions,

    BUT after seeing and hearing what some children go through, I'm all for it! I rather for a woman to have an abortion, then to let her child get abused in ANY type of way, weather it's by her, or someone else. Some people SHOULD NOT have kids!

    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...
