Hey guys as above. do you regert it?
I have 4 kids. 17 (18 in 5 weeks!), 13, 8, and 4. I absolutely do not regret it. They are my life. My oldest has some depression, but its not severe and she has a therapist. Besides that, none of my kids have any mental health issues. They’re all happy and successful in school. Im very proud of them. I know theres a risk that any of them can develop sz in the future, but i cant future trip on that chance. I focus on the now and making every day fun and full of love. Im a good mom, and my husband is amazing, to me and the kids. Having his support helps a lot.
I have none. Never will. One of my wisest decisions to date
I know sooo many people that regret having children (though most won’t admit it).
I had a baby and had him adopted by friends.
Best decision I’ve ever made.
I love him, I get to see him, but I’m not responsible for his life and very soul.
Life tells us we’re supposed to have children,
I like my own life too much.
I have 6. Sometimes I regret having kids, sometimes I don’t. It’s just a part of being a parent. Everyone has those moments and like @Charles_Foster said, not many will admit it. Because admitting any weakness makes you the bad guy and no one wants to be that.
I have 1. I am hoping to have another as well. I don’t regret having him. Sometimes I miss freedom and my hobbies but I love him so much
At one point I was married and for a while there we were working on having kids.
As it turns out we never had any and I don’t regret it a bit.
My ex wife turned out to be a “bad” person who was abusive towards me.
Our marriage ended in divorce.
So goes life.
Same but I wasn’t married.
I wish I could have a kid or two even.
But man that’s some mad amount of responsibility
I have 2 kids Sparrow (24) and Sam (12). I don’t regret it. Sometimes I do though. I was trying to go to Spain as an exchange student when I got pregnant with my daughter.
I love the names you chose
Sam and Sparrow
One daughter who is twenty now. It worked out well, so far at least. I didn’t want kids originally, but am very glad for the oopsie.
Thank you. My niece’s name is Raven. I guess me and my sister liked bird names.
Sparrow is so cool though.
If I had a girl, I’d so be open for that name.
It’s hella cute
I just have the one little one. Mind you shes 19 in march. Shes still my beautiful dumpling.
Love her to the world and back.
It annoys me that blokes dont appreciate what an honour it is to be a Daddy.
I’ve seen her picture. She’s a beautiful girl. Very pretty face
Got 2 permanent kids through foster/adoption, had about I think 9 come through here temporarily. Love them to bits. There were times I regretted it, when I was losing sleep because of parenting duties. Those times only lasted until the next full night of sleep. There’s a direct correlation for me between how successful I feel as a parent and how much I slept the night before. Mostly I love it and feel very happy with my decision.
Yep. Losing sleep over your kids is normal. I was so worried about my daughter as she was growing up that I lost a lot of sleep. (She was bullied and struggled with her grades).
I bet it’s hard when they leave.
It is devastating. The worst is when we aren’t allowed to know how they are doing or anything else about them ever again and we just have to accept that it will remain a mystery.
