“That complete factor about your mates beginning to have youngsters and that it’s going to make you need one. The humorous factor was my pals having youngsters was the precise cause my 50/50 went to ‘I do not need them.’ I can tolerate youngsters for brief spans of time, however on the finish of the day, I haven’t got to take care of the anxious a part of having youngsters (illness, tantrums, cash, and many others.)”

“In a psych class, we realized a couple of research the place they separated monkeys from their moms at delivery. The monkeys grew to be troubled and twitchy. When these monkeys had their very own youngsters, the moms did not know take care of them. I used to be raised horribly, so I do not know increase somebody properly. My dad and mom had youngsters although their dad and mom abused them. My grandparents’ dad and mom most likely additionally abused them. I am simply chopping off the cycle.”
“I used to be ‘parentified’ as a baby to my 4 youthful siblings. After I see a baby now, I act good however can’t wait to get away from it. I had my share of caring for youths and have subsequent to nothing optimistic come out of it.”
“I’ve two boys, and I really like them, however boy, do I want I hadn’t had them. Whether or not or not it’s political, climatic, or economical, their future would not look too vibrant, and my complete life is now devoted to creating certain I will be round and financially out there to assist them in a cutthroat world.”
“I like my life how it’s proper now. Sleeping in, taking spontaneous journeys, spending my cash on myself. Having a child means your whole life modifications, and I do not need my life to vary.”
“Children destroy issues. They make messes. I simply was capable of eke out a life for myself in a home and really purchase some new issues and make it really feel like I’m lastly an grownup. For youths to spoil the sofa I saved for or the TV I saved for would simply be an excessive amount of. These are symbols of my onerous work and accomplishments!”
“I’d like to if I could possibly be a father. Motherhood asks you to sacrifice all the things — out of your physique, to identification, to even your life to your baby (my mother virtually died in childbirth). I really like my physique, my monetary freedom, my profession, my relationship, and the cleanliness and silence of my dwelling. I refuse to offer any of that up for a kid I do know I’d resent for upheaving my life.”
“I can barely undergo my interval with out painkillers — I will by no means handle to offer delivery. Additionally, I do not like youngsters, they’re annoying.”
“I am lazy. I like my free time. I like cash (properly, the little I do have!). I like sleep. I’ve additionally simply by no means had the intuition in me to need youngsters. I really feel full with out them. Plus, it is scary sufficient worrying about my very own future, not to mention the way forward for miniature people.”
“As a lady, I do not need the physique modifications that include having a child.”
“Folks saved telling me that as I might get older, I might attain my 30s, discover my soulmate, my pals would begin having youngsters, and many others., and I might begin to have that feeling. Nicely, I went by all these milestones and I nonetheless haven’t got that want for youths.”
“Have you ever seen the world on the market? I imply, a number of generations have already checked out severe looming issues and stated, ‘However the youngsters are our future! They’re going to repair it!’ Inside my lifetime, I’ve seen local weather change go from ‘international warming’ and really delicate modifications to once-in-a-century environmental occasions taking place yearly. It is time to cease making extra folks till we will repair the issues we’re inflicting.”
“Full lack of a help system. You already know the saying, ‘It takes a village to lift a baby’? Nicely, we’ve got no village anymore. Except you occur to stay near household, nobody is round to assist and also you’re by yourself.”
“Freedom. My husband and I’d most likely be fairly good dad and mom and we’re in a great spot financially, however we really feel full with one another. We’ve got enjoyable collectively and need to spend the remainder of our lives with out the duty and stress of youngsters.”
“Adoption is an extended course of and some huge cash that I don’t have. Children are costly!”
“I now stay with incapacity and power ache and I simply watched my finest good friend battle with a HEALTHY being pregnant! I feel a being pregnant would go away me with irreversible injury and ache and I’d be unable to take care of a child afterward. I’d severely battle as I’m proper now attributable to power fatigue and power ache. I would not be shocked if I turned wheelchair sure.”
“I simply haven’t any want. I don’t hate youngsters, and I really like my nieces and nephews and have a good time being an influential a part of their life. Nevertheless, that implies that I additionally see how troublesome and anxious it’s to lift youngsters. I perceive that individuals actually adore it and it’s price it to them, however that’s simply not me.”
“There are tens of millions of orphans on this planet — what about ME and MY genes is so particular that I’ve to create a complete new human from scratch? The world doesn’t want extra folks.”
