I’m 28 and I feel the same. I don’t know if its going to change or not. I’m rather on the fence about kids. 79% on the side if terrified.

I’m under the general consensus that children suck.

I feel the same, 25 and I feel like I’m not ready for kids at all. I visited my friend who has a 3 yr old and a 3 moth old and her house was full of baby things everywhere, it was chaos trying to feed both and bathing etc I was there for an hr and left sooooo drained!!!! 

 I’m not ready to give up my free time/money etc yet, way too selfish! 

its stupid but I also worry about things in the future, like what if they have disabilities or learning difficulties or get bullied or my daughter develops an eating disorser or anything that can happen in ones life. It’s soooooo scary!!!!

@Hyperventilate:  +1, I just don’t want one.

@AngelR88:  I’m the same way – I have no idea what to do around children. They’re not like normal people, they’re weird little beings whose ages/interests I have the worst time guessing at.

@AngelR88:  As a parent I can tell you that I love my own kid but I am definitely awkward around other people’s kids. I just have NO IDEA what to do with them or how to interact with other moms. I definitely understand your concerns. It’s hard being the weird antisocial mom :/

I can’t even fathom the idea of being a parent. Just not for me. I can’t stand baby talk and playing kiddie games. I was never into babies & I highly doubt that’s going to change.

I do want kids, but I won’t be baby talking or having my entire existence revolve around them. It is important to remain a wife as well as a mother. I think children are an important addition to a family – at least to our family – but I am not obsessed with TTC. If we can’t have a healthy baby on our own, I will not go to the ends of the earth to change that. We will travel and get dogs.

@HeyKaraoke:  This is so true. My kids are awesome. It’s the other peoples kids that I get weird around.

@Rubbs:  THIS! I’m 99% sure I’m not going to have kids. I just call myself CBC (childfree by choice).
