    Do you want kids?

    If you don't already have them, do you want kids? I like them, but I like to give them back and have never really had any desire at all for my own. I like to travel so I tend to avoid anything in life that might tie me down. I won't even get a dog in case I leave for too long and can't find anyone to take care of it! So are kids in your future? Why or why not?

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I hate kids. But I thing I'll have child when I get older. I really don't wanna deal with them.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Hmmmmm.... Right now I say I don't want kids ever... but I'm sure in the future that will change, maybe...

    I do know that when I'm ready to have more responsiblilties, I'm going to adopt. Just the thought of actually having a human being inside of me come out freaks me out! When I see a baby that is just born I think its gross, idk how people say they like the smell of newborns, ewwwww!

    Ahhhhh this just gave me the creeps!

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I definalty want kids. I love them so much they are so cute and sweet. I come from a large family with lots of kids around. I can even imagine not having any of my own. I want at least 3 someday.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    definitly!!!
    i figure they are the future and what better way to guarantee their will be some good human beings in our future than to raise em myself!!!
    but i wonder if i should have my own or adopt... i mean there are so many children without homes or love...and if i can give to them...than i feel i should!!!
    but then again i think it would pretty cool to have a mini me...
    but yeah kids are definitly in my future!!!

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I want kids, but not until after I graduate from medical school and start a career.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Ew. I never want kids! I dont think they are cute, and I think babies are the grossest thing ever. (dont tell me that I used to be one because I'm sure I was nasty also! :))...I think its sooo gross that kids can't wipe their noses and stuff.. I have already tried to get my tubes tied but the doctors said you have to have atleast one child before they will do it. I wish they would do it now...because I just don't have the patience, and if I ever got prego on accident, I would probably want to kill myself, so...I just dont have sex...but I'm getting married, and I can't keep doing that, so I have to pray that the Birth control works...thank goodness the hubby to be hates kids also--so neither of us want them...we want to travel and enjoy life, plus the world is WAY TOO overpopulated.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I definitely want to have children when I am older. Of course, that will come much later when I know I can provide for them with a stable financial income. I would say that I would plan to have children after I have finished all of the school coursework, married, and have settled down decently enough that I know we are ready to have children. I wouldn't want to provide for children if I knew I couldn't give them the best opportunity that I could for them. Besides, I think as human creatures we were meant to have children from a biological standpoint, so I might as well do it, but only when I know that we are ready and that we have the support we need to raise a child. ^_^

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Yes, I love kids, and I definitely want to have kids of my own one day. But, I do want to wait until I have settled down in a home, with the right person. And I know that it will probably be a long time from now, since I am still in high school, but I believe that it will all happen when it needs to. I would love to have one boy and one girl, very traditional, I know.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I will have a great family, so indeed i want kids. I will give them proper education, enjoyments in life as every dad should do. I will give them anything they deserve, and i will insure that i be the best dad in the world. But right now of course... i am only 18. :-) But looking forward for that.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I didn't used to want kids. As I grew a little older my opinions have changed. I am curious now to see what my kids will look like. I also want to experience pregnancy. Is that weird? I know I'll regret saying that, but I have always wanted to know what it feels like to have a little creature growing inside of me. Will have to wait for a few more years until this school thing is out of my way.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I've been around kids all my life, and I think that's why I enjoy being around them more than adults. I feel like I have more in common with them. I feel like I can re-experience my past. I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters and all of them have their own distinct personality and I think it's cool. I wonder what they will be when they grow up...

    I would love to have kids or adopt when I get older but that's a looonnnggg time from now :)

    Simply, Jo

    twins

    Well, I could never get pregnant like Arnold. (Junior)
    But, if and when, were my wife to get pregnant, I would hope that we were family planning by then.
    I want to be of the mind set that having kids is a welcome suprise or plan. I would never want my kids to sense, even in the slightest, that they were never planned for or wanted.

    and yes, I think twins or triplets even would be cool.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Wow! Thanks for all the responses, guys!!

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I would love kids but I have big goals and dreams I want to achieve. I love kids, thats why I want to work with kids fighting cancer and be a pediatric oncologist.

    I wouldn't plan on having my own kids probably till my early thirties. I come from a really large immediate family. I have four siblings, which in todays world, is a lot. I don't know if I want to have that many kids, probably like two, but I definitely want kids at some post.

    Amazing forum!

    Re: Do you want kids?

    I like children I have 4 of my own and. They are a blessing to me. They are my ANGELS!! I hear a lot of parents complain about their kids, but mine are my pride and joy and I don't have any complain at all. They are all well behave, intelligent, respectful children

    Do you want to be a parent?

    (not pertaining to this thread in particular)

    It seems as if everyone wants a baby but no one wants a "kid" or many people want a kid but don't want a teenager...
    I want children but when I reflect on how fast time seems to have passed, I know a baby will soon become a young adult; when talking about this subject I feel it is important to remove figuritive speech, you may want children but do you want to be a parent?



    ...a parent of an adult?!? lol.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    i am planing on going into earlychildhood education in college and i love kids. i am wanting to have kids of my own someday. but right now i am fine with the blessings i have from my brothers and sisters. i think children are a blessing.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Kids are a BIIIG responsibility. Throw ups, dirty diapers, holding them so they don't cry, playing with them, teaching them, all that requires time and a lot of it.

    I would want to have kids with someone that I love and that love would have to be everlasting. Marriage and then the baby carriage.

    If not then, maybe I'll adopt and/or get a few dogs. I love dogs anyway. But one day, I would like to have a position as a mother, a parent. I would like to experience life and love in that way.

    Re: Do you want kids?

    Frankly, I am appalled by the responses to this post. While you all have respectable opinions, children are not "things" or "creatures" that the majority expressed would be the runner-up to dogs. It is a little offensive to state all the negative thoughts about having a child and then to say maybe one day you will just to experience it.

    It is very hard for couples to conceive a child when trying and keep in mind that the adoption process is not one simple step. Familial upbringing, history, background checks, references, personal beliefs and values, social interactions, financial capabilities, etc. must all be analyzed just to be considered. So, if you want to adopt just because you want to try a kid and because you think you can, you might want to reevaluate your perception of what having a child really means.

    There is so much that can stem from this discussion so I would like to keep my reply short, but for us to think that we can have kids if we want or else adopt is a bit naive--and a slap in the face-- when there are couples desperate to love and to provide for a child whether their own or through adoption. Is it fair that because you are heterosexual you can have these choices and an easier process in adoption without criticism? Is it fair that because we were born into a societal system that we can just "get a kid" if we want when there are families that are forced to give up their child around the world? What about infertility?

    I am not seeking to demean any one's personal opinion, but children should not be regarded as things we pick or things we despise because they are not born with the life experience of knowing that a runny nose deviates from societal norms.
