Just because you can, does not mean that you should... does it?

Because you CAN have 9 children, should you?

Because you CAN eat all you want, should you?

Because you CAN homeshcool, that does not necessarily mean that you should. Or that you are capable.

  • You are right, just because you can do things, does not mean you should.

  • Never...

    I CAN choose to FF my kid at 6 months, but, I won't.
    I CAN never try to BF, but, I won't.
    I CAN put my kid in a crib at night, but, I won't.
    I CAN feed them solids at 2 weeks, but, I won't.

  • I, for the most part agree. But what works for one doesn't work for all. Sooo in some cases I do believe just because you can, you should!! You only have one life to live! Make the most of it!

  • i agree, the end doesn't always justifies the means. i mean yea we all could probably have 9 kids, but do we have the insurance for these 9 kids, the money to provide for these 9 kids the patience for these 9 kids.

  • I agree! That list could go on and on..

    Just because you can take what isnt yours..

    Just because you can have soda all day

    Just because you can include a 3rd person in your marriage..

    way to many to list...

  • I agree, but as with any other statement, there are always those who are exceptions. My DH is the youngest of 9... I don't think his parents fall in to that "you shouldn't" category... ME, on the other hand... COULD I? sure, but I would go nuts - so I shouldn't... So everything has exceptions...
