I'm not old enough to have kids yet but I still want some when I get older. I recently took a class called occupational child care and in that class I got to take care of a preschool of children (about 8 per day). At the end of the year I didn't want the children to go and i wanted to take the class again but sadly i couldn't. Now I'm smart enough to realize that having children has its cons too. I remember when my little sister was born and she was a pain in the behind. But now that she is six it is okay but she still does bug me. I know I want to have children in the future I just gotta have time for them first. Who else thinks this.

I qualified to be a nursery nurse I then worked for a few years before having two children of my own, and all I will say is looking after others children is NOTHING compared to have your own the weight of responsibility is much greater for a start but its 100% rewarding, im 24 now and plan to have one more baby when my others are in school.

I agree. Having our own child that we taking care have a big different in taking care the child of others. It is like, i'm taking care of my niece and i love her but it is still have big different in taking care my own child, My daughter is very special to me. She is the greatest gift that God give to me. She is my precious.

I always knew I wanted children . When I was younger I was always taking care of somebody's children and when there was an event going on , the adults loved to have me tag along as the oldest child because they knew I would take care of all the little one's . You sound very responsible in that you know you want children but you realize you need to wait until you are older . You will make a good mom someday !! Being a mom has always been the most important thing in my life and I would never trade it for anything in the world . I have five children today and would have more if it was an options but due to medical problems and the fact that my husband definitely does not want anymore means I will have to wait for grandbabies lol .

WHOA WHOA WHOA!!!!! Stop the truck where its heading to because I got news for you. I can't be a mom because I am a 16 year old male. Yeah I know its weird to hear all that from a male but I guess I shouldn't have used the term "I want to have them" sorry for the inconvinence but now that i wrote this it should clear any confusion in the future.

I have my daughter but i still want to have one or two babies again. Having children at home can make the house full of happiness so i want another baby. Heretofore our house are so quiet because there is no child here but now that the baby came,our house is full of joy. Everyone loves to play with my baby. Playing on the children can help to release stress..Happy Mylotting..
