You don’t have kids yet? What are you waiting for? Another touchy subject amongst people my age, and their families. I guess some people expect you to start having or at least have one child by the time you’re 25. That may be the case for some young people, but what I would like to know is, if the people that are asking me what am I waiting to have children for; are they going to help me raise that child?
It takes more than diapers and wipes to raise a child. I also think its all about personal choice. People choose to have kids, some people don’t. So why do the people who choose not to have kids get so much backlash? Not even as much as if I were a woman choosing to be a single parent. Or just simple being a single parent with X amount of children. If anything we should commend people that chose not to have kids for their own personal beliefs.
There are many reasons why people choose not to have kids. Money is the number one reason on the list. Also, maybe they haven’t found the right person yet, or they simply choose not to have kids, they prefer to live childfree, and although some people call it being selfish. I call it being smart. It all boils down to having preferences, and what people want to do with their life.
It seems to me that if you’re not like everyone else then you’re nobody and all because you’ve simply decided to step out the box.
