Why do you want kids?

Discussion in 'Philosophical Forum' started by Deleted member 84471, Jun 3, 2007.

  1. Nearly everyone wants kids..not for "survival", (like the human race is anywhere near extinction :notrust) , but to treat like pets, and spoil and pamper...WHY?

    I've asked my mother why anyone would want to go through the trouble and cost of raising a kid and she said it's something you have to experience to understand and can't be explained in words.

  5. That's what people say when they don't know what to say. :thumbs

    Why is that important? Your kids will not be you at all..you'll be dead and they'll be individuals. The only thing that exclusively carries through is your surname and a fraction of your appearance. Sure you can teach them stuff but you can teach stuff to random strangers, or your friends or whoever.

    I want kids...but only when I'm like....30....

    I think it would be cool to watch them grow up, like my own sick little experiment.

    Also, I have always wanted to say "You'll understand when you get older, son"

    My dad said it was because they're his only legacy. Something that's his and lives on after he dies.

    Personally I don't see the point of having a kid.

    I was taught as a child that we live on in our children. That we are immortalized in the way we effect others lives even if we are not truly remembered. That when my grandchildren have the same features as my own face, a little bit of me will live on in her/him as all the others who have come before me live on in my life. Kind of Circle of Life lion king crap, but i like it anyway <3

    That, and i adore children. xD

    And because we've been brought up.

    Why do we want to buy DVDs? Not for survival, but to put on and watch and... WHY!!!!!!!

    Also, personally, I don't want kids.

    Seriously, because I want my genes to go on, as anyone else. And I'd try to not spoil them, but to really educate them and make them good beings.

    This is how I see it:
    You take time and a whole load of effort to bring up a child in the best way possible so that when you get old and can't go for a piss without someone's help, your kid(s) will look after you instead of going/sent to an old persons home.

    Seriously though I want kids because it's one of the human race's instincts, no point trying to fight your roots.

    I want kids so I can show a child a better childhood than I had, also I want my legacy to live on even if its only my genetic code.

    I will have children because I need laborers who will do my bidding for free and that I have complete legal control over. Why buy slaves when you can make'em.

    Honestly though I want kids because I believe I have a good chance to help them lead happy lives.

    continue the human race? I dont want to.

    repeat the mistakes my parents did? i dont want to.

    Sense of immortality? fuck that.

    To pass on my genetics and create another generation of freaks? just dont care.

    Are my "instincts" fucked up? in my opinion no, but ask the remainder of the worlds population and they would say yes.


    Kids? I dont want any and i personally hate crying kids, and annoying hyperactive ones to. Plus i just cannot care about people because of my "nature"

    Do i care for my own species? no, because WE fucked up everything in the first place. To hell with the human race :p

    It's a funny way to look at things, but it's very true. Everyone helped my grandmother when she got to be in her late 80s. My mother, my father, me, my sister and even our brother. And it was a pleasure to do so, because everyone loved her so much.

    Me, I think I'd like to adopt a couple kids, because I don't think they should have to grow up without parents.

    I want kids, because I can be a better father than most I know. And cuz it's cheaper than an old folk's home when I'm 75 :D
