    How many of you have children? If so, what are the pros and cons.

    I would imagine having a child would be like having a slightly higher-functioning version of X-calibur. Loud, abrasive, selfish.

    Who would want a little shit running around the house creating problems?

    i dont want kids presently... im aware my views may change but right now kids and marriage dont seem like something i want.

    marriage looks shitty and annoying, and kids are disease bags bringing home every fucking virus and diarrhea/puke germ there is infecting everything you own.... puking all over everything, touching everything getting it all gross and infected...

    kids gross me out for the most part. If i had a kid and he came home sick, id go stay in a hotel till hes not sick and someone has disinfected my belongings. Kids sicknesses are the worst, its always puke, diaarhea and horrible colds that make you want to die.


    so as i see it, the negatives of kids are enough to make me not want one. Plus i dont have time, and dont want to make time for kids, if im gonna make time for anything it will be for a holiday to relax.

    I'm sure there's some sort of tax credit for reproducing.

    This

    I have 2 kids and it's a struggle every day, but I'm a single dad.

    Pros: They love you unconditionally, they're fun (at times), and they can make you proud (at times).
    Cons: They're a lot of work, they don't listen, and they cost a lot of money.

    This, mostly.

    If someone has any kind of busy or structured life, or they like to be spontaneous or come and go as they please....

    They shouldn't have kids.

    Kids require nearly 100% of your time and attention, even when they're at school or something they're always on your mind. Depending on the parenting, some are easier to handle than others, but most have their 'tough' years or phases. You're always battling something, be it bedtime, what they eat, who their friends are, what they want....

    it never ends.

    Having said that, my son is my biggest accomplishment (even though he's not 'finished' yet), the source of my pride, the biggest reason I smile and laugh as often as I do......when I'm not ready to choke the life out of him for something, lol

    He hugs me in public, yells 'I love you' from across the mall when he's working or with his friends, kisses the top of my head whenever he sees me.

    Best. Feeling. Ever. :)

    my friends w/ kids make it seem like the happiest thing ever when they post pics on facebook and say, "hangin out with my spouse and kids tonight.. life is perfect.."

    and then i see them and they say, "never have kids."

    i'm like.. "yabba, dabba, doo!!!" :hardcorehappy:

    Don't forget child labor laws.

    There used to be a time when you could just breed workers for your small business.

    This is more and more the case now that everyone has a germ phobia. I mean, yeah, wash your hands and cough into your arm etc., but the more overboard people get with germ control, the more sickly their kids are (and more often) it seems.

    I wasn't a fanatic, and my son was seldom sick...neither were we.

    They are little germ magnets though, lol

    well i made it sound bad, im good at that hahaha

    Im actually not a germ wimp... I just dont have my own kids, and with others i see how kids are always sick and i think about how i dont want to be sick. Im sure if i had my own kids wed regurgitate food and re-eat it together, but until then, keep your yucky kids off me lol.

    single dad....1 kid

    Pros: having a mini me do my bidding, tax credit, funny, brings me joy/happiness, keeps me in check, have to change your lifestyle
    cons: Ruin your chances to travel, annoying, can't go out when you want, have to change your lifestyle, they become priority, they talk too much, they poop everywhere, they whine and cry too much,
