What's that I hear? Silence? Mmmm not having kids is amazing.
You may feel that way now, but you might think differently in the future. A kid could be fantastic!
They always say “you’ll think differently” when they never do. It’s extremely ignorant to say that.
I used to think the same way then I had kids and I can't imagine my life without them
That's cool, you can carry mine for 9 months and then pay me the $250,000 to raise it till 18 then you can also pay for it's college and be there when it screams for hours. I'll visit it on weekends if I'm not on a date night with my partner or sleeping or on vacation. Meanwhile I'll be here controlling my insatiable lust for breeding since y'all can't.
Not everyone is equipped to be a parent. It’s a 24/7 job when they are young and even when they get older it’s still a demanding job. I have two children, and especially looking back on when they were little it can be a uniquely rewarding experience. On the other hand, there are a lot of trade offs and costs (time, emotional, and financial) in having children. And there are no guarantees how well things are going to ultimately turn out. I believe that each individual is best suited to decide for themselves if they are suited for, and in a place in life where, they can be a good parent. It’s a personal choice.
