I don't have kids, I'm 51. But it does scare me having a kid who looks like me.

Having a family has been the most important aspect of my life.  You would miss out on the most wonderful years.  However, I fully agree that you need to be ready to have kids.  Waiting until your 30's to reassess your situation is wise.

I think that if a person doesn't want children they shouldn't have them. Everyone should respect their choice. There are too many kids out there being neglected, abused, etc. If a person doesn't plan on being a parent for the rest of their life, they shouldn't have a baby.

I don't want kids. I'm 28 and I've been saying it for a while too. I already told my mom and some other family members if someday i end up pregnant it would be an accident. But of course I would keep it. But for now my decision on having kids is a no no. I don't need them. BUT I am gonna be an aunt for the first time. My brother is having his first kid. His gf is already a mom to a kid with another guy but yeah. Still pretty awesome.

I think more people should consider it. There are so many people that have children and do not put the effort needed into raising them. Many people have kids because they think they are supposed to (society's social clock) when in reality they may not have what it takes to be a good parent.

The choice of having kids is in the end a matter of preference. I think there is a stigma of a person being without a child much like people not having a partner/spouse. I think there was a movement of representing this classifying people as "child free" instead of childless as if the occurance was a bad thing. Yes there are people who shouldn't have chldren as they're irresponsible, but people do live healthy and satisifying lives without a child to. Some people do like their freedom to do what they want.

I've never ever had any desire to have kids so for me this is a great idea.

Different strokes for different folks although some people should definitely not been able to have had children! If you decide to have them you should  give them all the love that you possibly can. Your entire life needs to revolve around that child. I wanted children when I was twenty two but never really wanted a spouse.  Kind of hard to make that equation work.  I waited until I was in my thirties and am constantly rewarded with their accomplishments.  I couldn't have done it on my own and have a great deal of admiration for single parents that are able to take time for, listen to, and provide love to their children.  It is a huge commitment but my commitment has paid off and I give Thanks every day for my two children.

My husband I do not have kids yet. I am 26 and he will be 32 soon. I want kids. It just has not happened for us yet. I feel like it is a personal choice whether or not you want to have children. You have to prepared because it is a huge change. But definitely a blessing.

I am only 21 so this is completely hypothetical lol, unless I god forbid had a baby with a girl haha.  But do you think being a parent is a needed thing and/or that society kind of pushes that its "so great to have them" on us.  Some people call it selfish but if wanting to travel, enjoy my present family and friends and being an uncle, experience things with my partner that having kids sometimes inhibits...then call me selfish!  haha I have pretty much decided I don't want them in my 20's but I'll reassess in my 30s  ;). Or even if they are not biological I can adopt later in life!  I just don't like when people act like having kids is right for EVERYBODY or the be all end all of life, because I have nothing against having them it just isn't for me!  :rainbow: :peace: :)
You are 21 so you have plenty of time...by all means enjoy your life...and when you decide to have children it brings a new joy to your life...I always say you can regret not having children but never regret having them...it can be difficult like anything else in life but kids are great!

I was pretty sure I never wanted to kids and even though I was married we ended up not having our daughter until I was late 20s. People do not mind their own business and are always asking if and when you are having kids.

And after you have one, they want to know if you are having another. NOT A BABY FACTORY!

Enjoy your life. You are just getting started. Even if you never have kids, you can still have a positive affect on those around you.

To have children or not is a personal choice and you should not feel pressured to have a child just because family and friends feel you should.
