    I don't think I'll make a good mother.

    I think this is my first time admitting such.

    Even though the human body is made to continue

    the existence of our species, it doesn't mean some people should contribute their genes for the next generation. I live in an upper middle class city. Picture the most stereotypical rich suburb you can. Bimbo trophy wives made into plastic surgery perfection, and rich dads who...

    I can name quite a few people in my area

    who should be made sterile! I think there should be a law that requires want-to-be parents to have some sort of test to make sure they are fit to be parents. This should include their lifestyle, how the plan to financially care for their child, their living space and their...

    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!

    Sometimes I see people in public and,

    as much as I try not to judge people, I worry that they'll have kids. Haha!

    If you can't take care of kids,

    be involved in their lives, and be willing to make sacrifices for them, use birth control.

    One of the Two Biggest Mistakes of My Life

    Some people were never meant to be parents.  I'm one of those people.  It's years too late for an abortion.  Unfortunately, I now have to live with this for the rest of my life. I you are one of those people who think you might not be suited to parenting, listen...

    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.

    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.

    who should NOT have kids. They annoy me to the umpteenth power! Like they're cute and all, but they’re nowhere near cute enough for me to be like, “I want one!” I can only take them in small doses. My relatives’ children want to cuddle and be all up under me. And I'm...

    I have seen some pretty f*cked up stuff being

    done by people calling themselves 'parents' almost to the point its a push calling them 'people' Guys who knock a girl up but can't be bothered to take care of either the woman or the kid. Women who drink and smoke heavily whilst drunk. 'Parents' who do nothing but argue and...

    I feel like before anyone has a kid,

    they should have a dog first, because if you think about it, dogs are practically a slightly easier version of a toddler. You have to - give them baths regularly - feed them all the time - potty train them - take them to the vet - give them medicine - play with them Etc...

    One reason is because they don't raise them

    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.

    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 think most people shouldn't have kids.

    Just about all of the people I know have kids now and not a single one of them are what I would call a good parent. Some of the worst people I know are the ones with four or five kids. I think maybe people should be screened early in life and the ones there's no hope for should...

    I believe strongly that people with unresolved

    anger issues or past abuse should strongly consider counseling before becoming parents. It would be nice if you needed a license before you could have children that ensure you possessed the basic knowledge and skills to raise a healthy and happy child. Too much abuse, pain and...

    Yup. I think if you can't support them you

    shouldn't have kids. And if you do drugs then no you shouldn't have kids. If you can't be a responsible parent then no. I know people who live like crap because of their parents instability. None of them are going anywhere and it starts out from their mom and lack of parenting...

    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 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...

    Children are a committed investment.

    They shape and enrich your life. These people who do not allow them this and instead let them run riot and fend for themselves, are disgraceful! Children need good leadership, be set clear boundaries and be loved unconditionally!

    neighbor's kids for a few days because their dad was away and their mom had to go to the hospital after a car accident. He had absolutely no idea about how to take care of them. (Not letting an eight-year-old play battlefield is common sense, isn't it?) Called me about thirty...

    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 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...
