    THIS Is Messed Up. (must Read)

    Before anyone could have kids I think they should first have a IQ test and take a parenting class.  This is going to be long, but sooo worth reading because I know the most effed up family you'll ever hear of! My aunt has six kids ranging in ages 25 to 4. Her oldest...

    Some People Don't Change Part Two My Version

    Don't Get Me Started

    It sucks when the ones

    that don't deserve kids and can't provide for them are the ones that pop them out left and right! Then the people that will provide for them can't have any it's a sad thing seeing people take that for granted!

    Apply Here!!!

    seriously, there should be a mandatory application process for anyone wanting to reproduce! Stupidity and ignorance is genetic. I hate to say it but the **** is spreading like wildfire.

    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.

    I think that they should teach parenting

    as a compulsory subject to everyone. It's a good birth control for some and it would reduce the amount of people who are bad parents. It won't change the big things but it at least means people are ready for the responsibility! Because some people should not have kids at all.

    I think people should have children

    when they're ready. Only they know when that is. It's not really about whether the child is planned or not. I'm always thinking about how the child will be raised. Some people are responsible but they just don't want children. And some people are irresponsible and they do want...

      Most people are very unfit to be parents. If you are going to have a child you have to be commited to dedicating your life to that child. People are so selfish they seem to be incapable of this. They end up getting divorced, which don't get me wrong there are good...
