It’s more selfish to have children than not to have children.
You want to have children, that’s all good, but don’t you dare try to tell me that bringing more human beings into the world is some sort of morally wonderful thing to do. It isn’t.

I don’t want kids, I’m a selfish person who wants to lead a simple life. Im horrible with large responsibilities/commitments, having a *CHILD* is *not* a good idea. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. this is brought up people say “youll change your mind” “you’re young” etc.

It seems like people with kids that are miserable want others to go through the same misery they did. Having kids just isnt my thing.

I like to think parents are just trying to trick childfree people into having kids so they’ll be miserable too. They’re just trying to convince themselves more than you.

People that don’t want kids should have that decision respected. It’s not easy. At the same time, people that do have kids shouldn’t be treated like a burden on society, as has become much more common lately. I don’t know why it’s so hard for everyone to respect each other’s decisions

Unless you’re rich as fuck, if you have kids your life is basically over until your kids become independent but by then you’re old.

Everyone bugs me at work asking “when are you gonna have kids?” I say “never” and they don’t believe me – well why’d you bother asking then? Then some people have told me “but you’d make a great mom!” like they actually have any idea lol. No thanks. The parent life ain’t for me.

A lot of people can’t afford babies even with government assistance and still lack prevention until it happens. Then can’t afford the 1st one but “my baby needs a sibling”.

>you can afford kids. You just too bitchmade to give up literally every walking moment, all your money, and put yourself deeper in to debt. Selfish millennials. Just ruin your life like a real mature adult

Imagine being this stupid.

If you’re on the fence about it, the responsible choice is to go without.

I’ll be honest; I wanted kids and I think they’re awesome and fun – but I sure am glad that a lot more people aren’t having them. Whether it’s financial freedom, or just population control. It’s responsible to choose not to, and to actively take measures to prevent having them, if that’s your thing.

I don’t really care, you do you.

I will never understand people that get so upset when they find out other people don’t want kids. Who cares what their reasons are? It isn’t about you, doesn’t affect you, and it’s none of your business.

Wont. Too much of my father lives in me. Kids are awesome and not a single child will be subjected to any of that.

I’ll be the awesome uncle, the participating gdfather or just a safe adult to any child that needs a figure like that but other than that?

The bloodline ends in me

The thing about kids is that no matter how much you want them and love them, they always take more effort than you thought.

Ah yes because a baby is the only thing we can give up our freedom for. Everyone without a baby is a selfish bastard that only cares about themselves

The most important thing about having kids is actually liking kids.

Yes, you should be able to afford them. But that is only the most preliminary check. Do you enjoy the company of your child? Do you treat them like a human being instead of a burden? Do you hang out with them instead of only spending a cursory amount of time with them? Or do you see them as a chore?

Children can pick up on the smallest things. And knowing that they are loved and wanted and that their parent is invested – is the most important thing.

We have a kid, and I was thinking out loud if we should have another. My husband was like “hell no, we’re almost halfway to 18, I’m not about to restart that clock.”

Good point lol. I honestly love my child, she is my heart and soul, but we like to travel and it’s definitely been difficult (and more expensive) to do with a young child. I would never blame someone for not wanting a child for any reason, and think people bugging about popping out a kid need to stop.

I missed doing a lot because of my kids. But, I didn’t/don’t blame them. My priorities changed once they arrived.

And now, I can’t really remember not having kids

I can’t help it, I learned all my life that kids are a burden to be endured, and when grown-ups praise and encourage kids they are just faking it for appearances. I’ve never wanted to have to deal with that and I’m glad I was warned off early.

Then when I’m 40 my mom is like “guess I won’t be getting any grandkids huh”… well, no, I thought I was learning from *your mistakes.*

From the tone of these comments it seems like everyone is forgetting that most pregnancies are unplanned. The real choice isn’t really whether or not you want kids, but what are you actually doing to prevent a pregnancy until you achieve one one purpose.

I know people who are “selfish” by having 4 or 5 kids and thinking the world revolves around their families. Also using up so many resources because they think their DNA needs to be spread wider then everyone else’s.
A children’s museum opened in our city and people complained about the price, saying that if you have several kids it’s unaffordable. Tough shit, should have thought of that before cranking out a brood. Also, the insurance plans where I work are 1) single employee 2) employee plus spouse or 3) family. We have one kid so I pay the same family rate as people with 5 kids. It’s bullshit.
