Other than that, for the upcoming month I will be one of the facilitators in charge for a one day event with kids from an orphanage nearby.

I've been joining this kind of charity activities since last year. It brings joy to me seeing happy children. :hug::D

With no answers, I love and hate kids, the age of 9 till 15 years old can't fit into my head, annoying :hea: just like my GF's brother and my cousins :hea: but I love them also :hug: they are cute and at least are not boring :vlol:

No, I don't like them. The 'father' part of my personality still isn't visible. :p

They're definitely not boring. :D Just go out with them, you can definitely learn a thing or two from them.

And they view the world with an open mind. I especially love their imagination, so wild and carefree.

Being the eldest of 6 kids, and being 4 years older than the next eldest and a whopping 12 years older than the youngest (ill be 30 by the time she's my age now :eek: )- I feel like Ive pretty much helped raise most of them. Im always responsible, I kind of feel like Im over parenting - so if I ever have children of my own, it wont be for many decades, or, Ill adopt a young teenager :)

21-08-09, 13:32
i think there's something wrong with people who don't like children. maybe you don't like the way parents sometimes let them run berserk, or that you have to stop being self-centered when you have one, but they're innocent and amazing and we get to see the world for the first time again through their eyes.

sure, they can be annoying, even if they're your own, but overall, kids are awesome. i love 'em.

Yes, one of my main dreams in life is to raise a child or two and have a family. I have a niece and a god daughter who I treat like they were my own. I think children are one of the best gifts life can offer, they are the most beautiful thing about life. Especially when they are your own, they teach you responsiblity, selflessness, and unconditional love. Cheesy I know, but it's the truth. I can't wait to raise my own.:)

21-08-09, 13:41
Depends on the kid. Most parents don't know how to make their kids behave these days, which is why I don't like most kids. On the other hand, awell behaved kid can be sweet, and I like them. :)

All in all, I don't really like kids, but I somehow have always loved little Asian girls, they are so cute!!! :D I've been saying I'll never have kids, but I've considered the possibility of adopting a little Asian baby girl later on down the road. I'll probably never do it, but if I were to somehow have any kids at all, that's how I'd do it. :p

This statement and ones like it seem a bit blinded by black and white ideals to me. You do realise that even the smartest, wittiest and cutest kids can be evil little brats when the want to be? :p Actually you can reverse that and have a bratty kid that can be the model of all angelic-ness when they feel like it too.

That is what is soo marvellous about kids. They're so diverse, unpredictable and surprising. How a child behaves is mostly due to parenting skills and personal circumstances.

I love kids. I love my son even if he has made me want to tear my hair out on occasion. But he's smart and loving and kind too and he's helped me to grow into the person I am today.

I love babies, toddlers and really young children, but any older than that I'm really not a big fan of kids.. Everyone hates their parents once they get older, and I'm not really wanting to plunk down loads of money to have a kid who might hate me. xD

I'm sure as I get older my opinion will change, I'll want to start a family of my own, but for right now I'm not interested :p

Teenagers are definitely harder to ´communicate´ with. Well, they are not to blame, since they have to deal with all the changes in life etc. We have all been there.

I love 'pre-teen' kids, they are so cute and innocent (most of them lol). They really do see the world and everyone the way they are, without prejudice. The things they say can be so unexpectedly clever and funny. I have a niece, she is 3.5 years old now. I love her so much. :hug: :hug:

21-08-09, 16:59
I can’t generalize here. It totally depends on the child. Some are great and some can be brats, I guess them being like that is just part of growing up though.

To be honest, I can't stand around lots of little children, they make me totally nervous. But my mum has always told me she used to feel the exact same way, until she was around 25 and got pregnant with me. It really depends on the person I guess. Some people grow up loving children and wanting some of their own while others despise them their entire lives. I can't see myself EVER having kids though.

I was and I still am the youngest or among the younger in any group.

I work with kids..sometimes I like them sometimes they drive me mad. You can usually find some redeeming quality though....usually. Very rare to find a kid that I really don't take too..but they would never know it anyway.

However I would have laughed my head off if anyone would have predicted I would have worked with kids. I don't consider myself 'mumsy' at all.

That is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Just because somebody shares an emotional connection with children, does not mean they are a pedophile. A pedophile is somebody who is sexually involved with an underage child. Just because you don't like children doesn't mean people who do like them are automatically perverted or sick. God.

I'm not a kid person.

I don't do well with creatures as naturally selfish as children, and I can't humor them. I need to be able to talk intelligently to people, and I just can't tone it down for kids. I have like a natural aversion to them, like I just can't play nice with kids.

I wouldn't however hurt a child and I hate parents who don't treat their kids right. I guess I'm like the anti-parent, like I'll claw out anyone's eyes who hurt children or exploit them or don't listen to them. Because even though kids aren't the smartest things, they aren't stupid and kids don't lie. They have opinions and understand how the world works whether we want to believe it or not, and I don't like it when people take advantage of innocence.

I guess my main problem with kids is that I feel like I can't be the one to deal with them because I'm a corrupted version of childhood. I don't want to be the one who has the break the news to them and wake them up, you know? It innately makes me uncomfortable around kids and I become a little mean. Kids like me anyway though, which I never understood.

So to sum it up, I actually like kids, but I don't think I'm the type of person with the ability to handle or nurture them. Having something so precious depend solely on me freaks me out.

I hope to have at least one child someday once I get all my dreams and my wild years out of me. Maybe when I'm in my early 40's, late 30's.

Let me rephrase my previous statement: I like children when they're behaving or when I can control them.

And when they're sleeping, right? :p

It's very important to me that I'll have children some day. At least five. Hopefully seven. I'm willing to have more if I'm rich. I want to be a good father. :)

i love children to bits, whenever i babysit i find it soo fun especially toddlers chubby cheeks you just want to eat them up. If there is a naughty child however i will simply punish that child by taking away privileges :)

Children are high-maintenence pets, just astronomically more expensive. And they're cruel, selfish, and unpleasant as people. Just looking at them for too long makes me nauseous.

No. They can be annoying, bratty, and just a little bit frightening. For some reason they like me, however.

No, I don't like them. The 'father' part of my personality still isn't visible. :p
I don't want children, but I like being with them, as long as I'm not responsible or don't have to look after them. My sister last year in 20th October had a baby, and I never thought I would love so much having a baby at home, and before the baby was born my sister asked me to be the baby's godfather, and I accepted, without knowing if I would even love her, and now I love the baby so much.

Still, I'm like you in that. I don't see myself as a father, so I don't want children

Not every single Child is like that. If were gonna generalise then adult's are selfish, disloyal, ruthless and vain. Of course not every single adult is like that, and from personal experience not every single child has the attributes your describing.

As for being 'Immature' of course they are, they have yet to 'Mature'.

I dunno, sometimes kids can be cute. The other time they're annoying as hell and some can be very bratty it makes me want to fight them. :)

I can stand the children I HAVE to stand, like my 2nd cousins and my little brothers, but even then I have a hard time doing that.

Generally I don't like being around kids, which is quite a surprise to those who knows me because when i put my mind to it, i'm great with kids.

I like some of the tips (http://www.umext.maine.edu/onlinepubs/htmpubs/4077.htm) on how to communicate well with children:

Talk with, Not at, Children
Talking “at” the child is one-sided conversation: “Put on your raincoat;” “You are going to spill that;” “You need a haircut.” Adults who talk “at” children often use the excuse that a small child cannot converse at the adult level. But no one—including the young child—likes to be talked “at.” You may talk “at” the family dog, or even a tiny baby, but try to talk “with” a young child. Talking “with” a child is two-way conversation—talking to him and then listening to what he has to say. Forming the habit of talking “with” children rather than “at” them will be especially helpful when they become teenagers.

Use “I Messages” to Communicate Your Thoughts and Feelings“I messages” are statements of fact. They tell the child how his behavior makes the adult feel. Often, children don’t know how their behavior affects others. “I messages” are much more effective than “you messages” when the child misbehaves. “I messages” give the child responsibility for changing his own behavior. For example, if the adult says, “I see a dirt smudge on your face,” he is giving the child the responsibility to do something about the dirt smudge.

Caution: Instead of using “I messages” to express anger, express the emotion that came before the anger. For example, let’s say Bruce runs into the street chasing his ball. Fear probably comes before anger. Say, “I am really afraid you will be hurt when you run into the street.” Don’t say, “I’m really mad at you.”

Examples of “I-messages”:
1. I need help picking up now.
2. I don’t feel like reading a story when I’m tired.
3. I sure get upset when I see mud on the floor.
4. I can’t hear you with all that screaming.
5. I don’t understand.


Examples of “You-messages” (compared to “I-messages”):
1. You made a mess.
2. You’re a pest.
3. You ought to be ashamed at this mess.
4. You better shut-up!
5. You’re dumb.

My nephews make me to NEVER want to have kids, but my nieces make me smile and laugh and when I'm around them I want a bunch. I get sick of my oldest nephew who's sick who name calls (he calls everyone big fatty) and when I'm around him I wonder why I even think about having kids.
