Do you like children?

I mean ok, everyone likes of her own. But generally are you and your HB like children  or only yours?

  • Kids I don't have a problem with, it's the parents I can't stand.

  • I love children, they bring out something in me that pleases me, their innocence and honesty and wonder of the world is astonishing to me. Holding a new born baby gives me a sense of energy and strength, plus the smell and warmth is priceless. Yes, I would say I love children!

  • I like kids, and I spend a lot of my time volunteering in various ways with kids, ranging in age from toddlers up to older teens, and I've done so for years.

    However, just like adults, there are some kids that I do not like, because, frankly, they are very disrespectful, destructive, and downright mean. (I'm not talking about age appropriate, a toddler who throws a fit sort of thing - I'm talking about kids whose parents have allowed them to be little monsters.)

  • I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all children. Boys & girls & so does DH. They both have great qualities.

    Butterflyblue....girls really can be wonderful! Every child has great qualities if we just drop our judgement & really get to know them.

  • I am gonna be honest here....I like and love My children ONLY....I do not watch others children nor do I enjoy others children around with or without their parents. I know it sounds harsh but that is just me and the way I feel about it. I was offered a babysitting job a few months ago because the woman loved how my children and I interacted and how well behaved they were at my MIL church and I looked at her and said "No thanks I do not care for other peoples children." She asked why and I replied "Because I have enough stress worrying about my own children I would never do enough to feel justified placing more stress on myself worrying about someone else's children."....I think it will be the same with grandchildren once I become a grandmother also.... (This is my own opinion only and that is all)
