You are not the only one; I cannot stand the children, any of them.

On another note. Just this last fathers day I took my dad and mom out to eat at a steak house. This little kid (whose mom was a total milf) was sitting across from us in the waiting for your seat area. The little kid kept pulling on his dads pants leg. Not saying anything and just pointing at the stuff on walls wanting to get his dad to look at what he was looking at. Both of them just sat there texting away like the poor kid didn't exist. This kid was probably 2 or 3.

So, you're 22 and I'm 32. I probably feel the same way about you as you feel about the average 12 year old and conversely think of me in the same way I think of 40 somethings.
Exactly!

And that is why this is a non value-added thread.

For the record - my wife and I like children; however we have chosen to be a child-less couple for lifestyle reasons. From an intellectual and demographic view point childless couples are gaining momentum fast (at least in the US) - although it is still not as high as the 1930's when couples chose not to have children because they cost too much.

The reality is that most couples are delaying marriage until their 30's and 40's so just when they are planning on retiring, they have college expenses to worry about. In 18 years it's going to cost several hundred thousand dollars to send kids to an average college - basically wiping out any savings you might have and putting your kid in deep deep debt with probably very little chance of ever getting a job. It is well known that childless couples are much more affluent in the same way that gays are... we have lots of disposable cash. Cash that politicians need.

So... from a political standpoint... as the ranks of childless couples grows along with savings and cold hard cash... you can forget about schools, money for sport programs, etc... because we don't need those services and don't want to pay for them.

On a personal note... both my neighbors have put up basketball nets for their kids and now that school is out they are out playing from 7 am to 11 PM all week long. The catch is that there are completely open basketball courts across our quiet suburban street. All day I have to listen to "boing! boing! boing! boing! SLAM!"

Like I said earlier - we do like children but every time I vote it will be against having to pay for the burden of YOUR children.

I want to recommend Idocracy (the movie) . It's pure genius. If you don't get it, it really does need a repeat viewing. The net effect of the trend of affluent intelligent people having less and less kids is well illustrated.

All good. I'm third of six in my family.

Sister 1 - 2 kids (one adopted)
Sister 2 - 2 kids
Me - 0
Sister 3 - 1 kid
Sister 4 - 1 kid
Brother - 0

Told my mother I wasn't ever having kids when I was 8. Child-free is good.

And we wonder why the rest of the world looks at America and mocks our "me first" attitude.

So you don't want to pay for public education for kids?
You think not educating kids is going to make you better off? Who the heck is going to change your colostomy bag when you're 85 years old if we don't educate todays youth?

No money for sports programs for kids?
But you'll give cash to politicians?

I fully expect that when I'm 75 years old, my Thanksgivings will entail all four of my kids and about 7 or 8 grand kids (hopefully more) running around the house. Tearing sh!t up, making a racket and yes...maybe even laughing out loud. That's what I consider a successful life.

But that's just me. I'm a family guy.

Hello Mexico!

BierMuncher, seriously and with all-due-respect, there are other opinions out there. I don't have anything against children, or school programs, or education for children. What I DO dislike is this socialized opinion that the burden of children should be equally shared and I find the idea of "the villages' children" to be sickening. You want to educate your children? Send them to private school. We need to do away with public schools altogether.
