    I’ll never understand why people do that, and I’m a parent. It’s a deeply personal and serious matter. It’s completely life altering, yet some people are so casual about it.

    I have a lot more respect for someone who decides they don’t want kids, than those who do, are lousy parents, and harangue others to have some.

    My parents never pressured me, but were happy when it did happen. My late mother in law on the other hand was a truly terrible parent by all accounts. She debased us constantly over not having any right away.

    Now, to stick with the thread theme, here is a book on my reading list...

    The kid thing goes both ways.. No kids? oh you really should have kids. Have kids? I'd never have kids, whiny snotty things they are.

    Kids aren't easy, that's for sure, but my 5 year old calls Daddy, Dadddayyy from the top or stairs this morning, I went over and said yes? and he says, Just wanted to say I love you. Stuff like that makes up for a lot of other crap.

    Say it man! That's exactly how I have always felt. It's very important to make that decision if you have children. Yet some folks don't give it any thought at all. If you are going to be a parent, be fully committed to being an involved, interested, good parent. If you aren't willing to truly give your kids the attention they deserve and to really help them grow up to be good people and have a chance in life, then don't have kids.

    People who harangue people who choose not to have kids are just vocalising one of their greatest fears: dying old and alone.

    What really pisses me off is that those of us without kids are apparently not permitted to comment on someone else's obviously poor parenting.

    Well, I'm not a pilot either, but if I see an airplane in a tree, upside down and on fire, I know that somebody f@&ed up.

    For me as a teacher I get questioned about not having kids. Married 14 years lots of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews I have helped raise.

    Some more than their parents attempted.

    No one wants to be the bad guy with a kid. But saying no and setting boundaries can make a kid love and feel safe more than anything else.

    They get pissed when the kids love me even though I am the only authoritarian.

    Figure it out parents.

    When they hit teenage years and I am still the bad guy. They laugh and say see they hate you.

    But whom will they run to for help and support when older.

    Hell their parents already run to my wife and I for money. They are more like grand kids in that aspect.

    That's largely because people don't know WTF they are talking about. I recall my bro-in-law making comments about how to raise kids and years later while raising two, he did none of the things he mentioned. Talk is easy.

    Much like you not knowing how the airplane got into the tree.
