  • depends on how old she is, and her sense of maturity.

    my SIL says that, but shes like 17 and is immature and obnoxious and is still a child/brat herself.

  • Some people just aren't parent material...atleast she knows it.

  • I depends. If she is a young adult or teen, no really. Alot of people that age say that. Then, they are the ones who have a dozen and get pregnant on their honeymoon. I didn't care for kids much and I was pretty critical of misbehaving children until I had my own and could really understand how it is. If she is married, she could be jealous. Older, just negative. I would ask, "How do you feel about my kids" point blank. It would get on my nerves so I would ask her to keep her negative comments about kids to herself when she is around me and absolutely, when she is in earshot of my children.

  • Well when I was 21 I said I would never have kids ever but I never walked around saying it but now I have three kids and love them to death.

  • It's better that she knows this and won't bring a child in this world that won't be loved.

  • weird.. I would want to rip her eyes out! Maybe even use a spoon! I am protective of my kids. and NO one talks about my kids that way!
    Have you ever asked her why she says that?
    Maybe it is just every kid?
    Dear God, I hope. Other wise.. prepare the spoon!

  • I agree, some people are just not cut out for it, and at least she knows it. I imagine if she is young she will mature and maybe change her mind.

  • When my friend was 17 she said that she would never have a baby she is now 21 and has a cute little boy. I think most girls say that when there young.

  • The only time it would concern me would be if she was mistreating *my* children. Other than that, why would I care if she wants kids or not?
