Don't like other people's kids?

I love my son dearly, but very rarely can I spend time around other children. Is that just me? Does anyone else not like other people's kids?

  • I get a lot of compliments when out, other woman giving me phone numbers wanting to hook up because they 'like' my children, I'll be honest I don't call people back because I rarely 'like' other peoples children. It would be one thing if maturity, respect, values and morals were taught to all children, however these things seem to be lacking in many children out there. It's like parents consider them either worthless to teach, or they're too lazy to teach them, or they actually think there is some age you start teaching them... *sigh* my children learned to say please and thank as soon as they learned to talk, not "can I', "I want", or "give me". In any case, those are my reasons why I do not care for many other peoples children, but then again there are many adults missing those things and I don't care for them either.

  • Of course. Especially if they are around 4. I hate other peoples children.

  • This is bad to say but I cant stand other peoples kids half the time, they annoy me I used to have all the patience in the world and LOVED working with kids but as soon as I got pregnant, my patience flew out the window and now I cant stand other peoples kids

  • I do not like other people's kids either! I thought it was just me! I feel bad that I never want to have other kids at my house to play, but other kids annoy the heck out of me!!

  • Glad to know I'm not the only one! I don't know if it's because they're not mine, or if it's the attitudes. They just unnerve me!

  • I don't mind some of my kids friends, but there are a few i REFUSE to have at my house. They are snarky little snots who don't even listen to their parents, so why would they listen to me?

  • eh, I like any kid I can disipline. If I can't disipline them, don't leave them with me. None of that "don't spank my kid" crap. If you don't want him spanked, either make him perfect or don't leave him with me.
