Why have children?

I was watching WifeSwap. The lady had three kids. Four nannies. FOUR! Plus a maid and a personal driver. She doesn't work.

What is the point of having kids? She said she hasn't eaten with her kid's for 8 years. The nannies cook and eat with them. How sad!

  • WHAT? that's insane! just because of that her kids are going to grow up and be calling their nannies their mother, and she's gonna feel like an ass.

  • People are amazing. I go crazy when I have to work nights and miss dinner and play time with my son.

  • I don't understand it either...very sad for the children. I hope the nannies were at least good to them.

  • The kids will grow up and probably either be awesome parents or do the same thing to their children, if they even have any, its sad...

  • It is very interesting to me how people choose to raise they children I worked for a lady whos children grew up with nannies I will tell you from experience the children will love the nannies more than their parents even when they are grown, I agree it is sad.

  • Kids are great they are part of life I think it is a shame that so many mommy have to work to support their families and have someone else take care of their kids it is stressful.

  • Good question, I have no clue! Obviously with children it's even more absurd but I always ask why people get pets and then chain them up in the yard 24/7...what's the point? People are asshats, that's all I can figure.
