Kids are like farts-you can only stand your own

Without kids we would be a dying people. They keep us young, ask simple but probing questions and are not afraid of the future. They like to take on challenges and try creative new approaches to problems. Did I say that they keep us honest.

I love children. I have worked with them in one way or another for 22 years. All I've ever wanted was to be a mom. Unfortunately, I just found out that I'm infertile (I'm 33). My future husband will just have to be okay with adoption because I WILL be a mom.

I'm surprised at how many Dems like kids! Seeing as how they are so pro abortion. (Ducks under chair)

Why judge someone because they admit to not liking kids? Not everyone needs to & it's better to admit you don't like them or want them than to have kids you really don't want. Not every person needs a child to "feel complete" in their life

you're not going to find the honesty, loyalty, and genuine kindness in most people that you'll find in children... they haven't been corrupted yet, that's why I love them

I got married and thought I'd found true happiness. Then we started having kids. Children are wonderful. The challenges and joy that they bring into a loving home will strengthen the married couple that is blessed to raise them.

Just a little PSA to try and not judge a child throwing a tantrum. It may not be a lack of manners but something they cannot control, like PDD-NOS (autism spectrum disorder) or sensory processing disorder. Instead, try a friendly smile. Sometimes that's all it takes.

Good for you. An adopted child is just as much your child. When you love and care for someone they become part of you and you become part of them.

Depends on their behavior. We can't put all kids under one stereotype.

Not everyone has what it takes to be around kids. That being said, nothing irritates me more than people who think they are too good for kids. You used to be one...and with that arrogance, you were probably quite annoying yourself!

Next time on To Catch a Predator, thousands of unsuspecting people admitted to liking children. We will now hunt them down and bring them to justice one at a time.

Yep, I love my girls. I just worry about their future in this new Commie loving society. Where government re-education centers can teach them how to have sex, and tell them how to get birth control, and abortion pills, without their parent's consent. Its a sick society.

I remember a conversation I overheard my mom having when I was seven. The lady was complimenting my mom on her kids but added that she doesn't normally like kids. I remember thinking what's there not to like? We are just little adults.
Now as an adult I get it.

Kids who are brought up right, yes. Not kids I see in the store who throw tantrums. I don't like most teenagers because they're disrespectful and annoying. Haha.

Or they don't like kids. I've met a few of those. Unfortunate, but it does happen. And as a kid it doesn't feel pleasant to be in the company of an adult who's spewing dislike about kids to your parents while they know you're standing right there. Rude.

Energy in motion. Not sitting around immobilized and depressed without action. We need more action and less words. Even if they are wrong, at least they try... We need to not squash out all our youth. Life is good.

I like kids. Can they be annoying? Of course! But so can all humans! Without kids there would be no more humans because we'd go extinct. I'm glad to help watch younger kids if my help is needed. I'm glad to teach all people on what I've learned. In fact, I'm glad to help wherever and whenever I…
