First, I would like to say that I do not dislike children. As a matter of fact, I enjoy being around them and teaching them very much. Its just that I spent a large part of my own childhood helping in the raising my siblings. They still sometimes call me 'Mom.' Basically, I've had enough experience with child-rearing that I feel like I've already raised kids and I don't feel the need to do it again. A lot of people think I'm weird 'cause I like kids but don't want any. Here's the thing-spending time (I've been a baby-sitter and a pre-school/daycare teacher) with other people's children is great because, at the end of the day, you both get to go home...separately.
