Not crazy about other peoples kids.....

I know that sounds terrible with me being a mother. I have three kids of my own, and always said I didn't want kids because of how I felt around them. When I got pregnant with my first child I was devastated. I cried on and off for weeks. My mom tried telling me that it's different with your own kids. Of course I didn't believe her until after my first was born. My question is, am I the only one like this?

  • No, for the most part I don't like other people's children. There are a handful of exceptions & they're at my house all the time lol

  • I don't like many people PERIOD,and kids are no exception. Some kids just rub me the wrong way.
    There's this creepy kid in my son's class that is always trying to ask me questions and he leers at me.

  • I like certain kids, usually the well behaved ones lol Kids like me though but I do a lot with my dds friends. We go to movies, do art projects, scavenger hunts. But she's had a few friends I don't like, they are rude brats so I try to not have them over.

  • I like kids who are well-behaved and in possession of their basic manners. Which means there are a lot of kids I dont care for at all. It amazes me how rude some parents let their kids be, and just laugh it off. That being said, I love my daughter in a way that is different an so much deeper than I feel about any other children, even my stepkids, and it's unexplainable to me.

  • All in all, I have way less patience with other people's kids. Whenever I begin to think mine are little monsters, I just go out in public and witness other people's children and I feel a little better. That said, sometimes when we are out my kids are 'THOSE KIDS'.

    I however was not upset when I found out I was pregnant with either of them.

  • Since being around a lot of little kids. I have come to the realization that it's not the kids fault that they can be annoying. They are annoying when they have annoying Parents. Kids are like mirrors of their Parents bad qualities. Unfortunately the Parents don't see it or correct it because they don't notice their own short comings. Thus we have so many bullies & disrespectful children these days. Thank their disrespectful & obnoxious entitled Parents for that. Whew....that was like a vent! LOL!
