I say “My children will never…” all the time. Here are few examples:
My children will never run around a store screaming like a wild person.
My children will never walk around with ear phones in their ears in public places.
My children will never eat junk food.
You get the idea… I’m going to have perfect children 😉 As we all know, I’m in for a big reality check!
What will your (future) children NEVER do? Or, what did you say that they wouldn’t do, that they in fact did?

HAHAHAHA I love when I hear ppl without kids say these things lol
I use to say that my children wouldn’t have Binkies (pacifiers) yeah they both did til they were 3 and 2.
I use to say that my children wouldn’t ever be held to fall asleep because I wanted them to “self sooth”….yeah I held my oldest to put her to bed til she was 2 1/2 and my youngest til she was close to 2.
I’m sure there are more but I can’t think of all of them right now. Those are my two big ones though.

@lessons: I’ll play! Even though, yes, I try to remind myself that I’ll be in for a reality check, but I do this all the time!
1. My children will never lay their heads on tables during meals.
2. My children will never spend birthday/Christmas money until they’ve written their thank-you notes.
3. My children will demand something and have me give it to them!
Darling Husband, who already has a child just laughs at me, but until I give birth and these issues start rearing their heads, I will live in blissful denial.

Bwahahaha, I don’t have “nevers” any more. At least not for my child. 🙂
I have some “nevers” for me, though. So far, those are holding pretty strong.

Hehe. Some of mine I think are realistic, others….well. You know. And most of them I think are more reflective of me than of them.
My children will never have a TV or computer in their room.
My children will be read to every night.
My children will not be allowed to eat junk food every day.
My children will not be allowed violent video games until the age of fifteen.
My children will not watch violent TV shows or movies until the age of fifteen, exceptions being Star Wars and the Firefly series.

LOL, it’s like the #1 in the International Handbook of Parenting (otherwise empty, not helpful) that as soon as you say “My kid will never…” your future kid WILL.

My child will never use or abuse a female.
My child will also never get someone pregnant while still in high school like his father and his father and his fathers father too.

@Running Elley – In response to “My family will think that vegetables are delicious (I’m being optimistic lol)”…
My nephew actually went through a phase around age 6 or so where he ONLY wanted vegetables. My sister had to tell him things like “eat 3 bites of your chicken first, then you can have more broccoli”.

I have no idea what my future children will never do. I have lots of things I’d like to put on the list, but then I’m just asking for it. 🙂
