    If you can't take care of kids,

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

    Namely, all of the people (both the men

    and the women) who show up on talk shows like "Maury" to determine which one of what seems like 50 guys is the father of their child, only to find out that none of them are the father. I make an exception for those guys who truly want to be the father of the child, only to be...

    Sometimes I see people in public and,

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

    It breaks my heart to see some scum

    who have kids and couldn't care less about them when there are some amazing people who physically can't have kids but would be amazing parents.

    Like me... I do not want my genes to passbon to

    a new generation. They will only cause more pain and suffering. My family has been in pain and misery for hundreds of years. I see it my mission to bring an end to it

    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 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.

    Over protective people will make their kids

    fail in life for sure.Many of them might think that the world is so harsh ect. But If you really want to protect your kids then protect them from yourself. Your behavior and desire to scare your children with your own fears can damage them than the harsh world could ever do...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Anyone can have a child.

    It takes someone special to be a parent. I have seen people ruin the lives of their children when it is clear that they never really wanted them in the first place. Society pressures us to follow social norms. "When are you going to get married ? when are you going to have...

    ... I'm not as responsible as I thought I was, as I've realized. It doesn't mean I wouldn't like to at least raise one on my own in the future, but I would have to work really hard for it, and to be honest, I don't have enough motivation to fight for two things at once... At...

    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 ...

    My take on it is if you can barely afford to

    keep yourself afloat, don't bring another mouth to feed. Chances are you wont be the one having to pay for it, we will.

    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 love other people's kids and have worked in many different jobs closely working with kids of all ages and I have always loved it. But I decided in my early teens not to have kids because of my not wanting to pass on some family traits that I never liked, didn't want to produce...

    I think some people shouldn't have kids.

    I'm not trying to be mean or rude, but I think in many casses, it's simply irresponsible. It's irresponsible as a inhabitor or this planet, as a member of society, and as a human being in general. For one thing, in case no one has noticed, the population of the planet went from...

    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...
