If you have children do other people's kids bug you? Why or how do they bug you? Do the kids just act out and you can't stand the fact that the parents don't parent them? Do the kids just act like regular kids asking a million questions and it bugs you because it's not your child. Do you look at kids differently? Your children are cute when they do those annoying habits but if it is someone else's child acting like your child would would it bug you?

Before I had kids I used to get somewhat annoyed. But now I am more tolerant. And it does all depend on the child and the parents. Some parents just cannot control their children. So, this really varies.

@inertia4 I get annoyed with the parents more than the child because the parent should have some control over the child.

@mommaj I totally agree with that one. The kids are innocent when it comes to things like that. They don't know any better. Where the parents do.

I have had five children, but I am no fan of other children. The non-parenting thing drives me crazy. But, most of them are dirty and annoying, LOL.

Good evening. I haven't made it to your posts in a while. I was planning on doing that tonight if I get a chance. Although, I am seriously dreaming of bed right now. LOL

@RussTeed LOL. I know. I just meant I really wanted to visit your stuff because I haven't had a good laugh. Not too many people are fun. Okay then, why ARE you here?

Good questions. I love all children. I see the face of God in each one. I try not to judge, though I often see examples where parents are at fault. In societies where the family unit has been lost, such as in many places in the US, children are parented less. Sometimes I don't blame the parents either, I blame all of us for allowing our society to take the focus so far away from family values and parenting.

I think you can blame the government as well. The child abuse laws are so strict that most parents won't swat their child on their bottom. I'm not saying that is a good thing to do, but if you know anything about kids what is the one thing that they will respect. The Fear of someone doing that to them. Parents can't even use it as a viable threat because the kids can go to school and say mommy said she is going to smack me. LOL So they in turn know they can get away with it. Wonder why the prisons are full? Because parents cannot and do not know how to parent or discipline.

@mommaj There is a big difference between a swat on the bottom and child abuse. However, the government does not trust parents to make that distinction. That is our job, to make those distinctions. The government has taken many options away from parents, and then as a society we don't know how to be parents. It is a mess from any angle.

I love kids. I am nuts about them. Yesterday I was having my bath...and my little hero took the whole building by storm kind. He kept on shouting my name as he calls me (atta) and finally I was out with all soap still getting into my eyes, but decent. When he is playing and if I go to restroom, he gets terrified. He starts pounding at the door. lol. His little sister jumps out of her mother's arms towards me. And cries if mother does not let me play with her. They sure send me on ego trips each day. Would I have been different had I had children, perhaps. I can't say. I try to be positive about it. I don't have to do much for the little ones and I get to play with so many little ones now and then! If I had only one or two..that would be pretty limiting factor, right?

This is true. It would have been limiting and your own children don't always grow up and still love you. LOL You can't be their friends all the time. You have to be their parent. So in a way, you have it better where you can enjoy them.
