Many people say that children are annyoing, a finanicial burden,and weigh you down and make you unhappy. So after hearing this and witnessing it perhaps with a brother or sister, are you going to have children? If so why do you want to? Or dont want to?

OMG, how bad is your perception towarsd having baby! Life is so beautiful to have babies and kids. I could not call a house a home if there's no kid at all. If only I'm rich and I can afford, I wanna have dozens of them! For now, I have 2 boys and planning to have a girl!

Not only did I witness annoying children from my sister,my mother had a large family childcare( in my house!!) when I was little.I swore all throughout my childhood I never wanted to have kids.Now that Im getting older I do want to have kids.I even started working in a daycare infant room and realized I loved working with children.

That's nice... :) I always wanted to work with children and I love kids... That's what made me take up Bachelor of Elementary Education in college... Too bad I wasn't able to finish college...

We already have one kid, and I have to agree that it's a heavy responsibility but very fulfilling too... Anyways, I'm having issues about having another since our son is 4 years old and my in-laws are kinda bugging me about having another baby... But I think we're not that ready financially.... So I guess we'll have to save more and get pregnant when our son turns 7...

well, we certainly want to have kids as we both like them or love them you can say. i feel its our duty because we came in this world only because our parentsdecided that they want children. and i think they are cute little creatures. i think its our duty to show this beautiful world to our new generation.

If you choose to have children, you then prepare yourself financially to have them, to make sure they are provided for. I have a beautiful 10 month old daughter & would not want it any other way! I guess kids do start to get expensive as they get older & need or want things but initially they really aren't expensive. As for weighing you down, well, you prepare yourself to not be able to do the things you used to do but there is always family to help. I have found some children annoying but i guess that's all to do with how they're raised!

I'm definitely NOT going to have kids. They really are/can be annoying, a financial burden, etc etc. I haven't so much witnessed it with younger siblings, but I have nieces and nephews and I've spent the last 10 or so years babysitting. It was on and off for a little bit, but then it was everyday for the last 7 years. Why don't I want kids? Well, because they can be annoying, they're a financial burden, I don't have the patience to deal with them, they're messy, etc, etc, etc...
