Does having children make you happy?

You're not having a "kid". you're not having a "baby".

That's the point most often overlooked.
The "cute little baby" will outgrow his/her Pampers in a matter of months.
Then, you'll have to deal with the mind-boggling responsibility of bringing up a person, and worry about their well-being, for the rest of your life.

Furthermore, ANYONE, any punk, any institution or individual with an agenda, can manipulate you like a marionette by simply threatening the well-being of your children.
(Tolstoy described this wonderfully well in "Anna Karenina"!)

It's a tough one to bear.
And while I have tremendous admiration for dedicated parents, as I said before, I really cannot see why anyone in their right mind would WANT to assume such an emotional and mental burden for life.

I've only read most of the first page of this thread and I don't think I can stomach reading anymore; it is too depressing. If we have evolved to a point where we no longer want children then we've reached our limit and extinction is now inevitable. It seems we have gotten too selfish.

im afraid im one of the i hate children and never want one brigaid.

i just dont have the yearning, i dont see babies and think arrr or coo over them.
ive actually been attacked for it and people call me a freak and things i cant repeat on here.
my own mother hates me for it because shes desperate to have grandchildren and lives for babies.

I could'nt be without my two young daughters. In fact i find it hard to remember ever being without them.

Granted bringing kids up is not always easy, but i would'nt change what we've shared for the world.
