  • Honestly, not really. I love my daughter, my sisters and my best friends two kids. Other than that, unless I know them well, I steer clear of other people's kids.

  • It really depends on the kids. Not particularly fond of some of DS1's friends. They are the kind to sell their grandmother to the highest bidder or figure out the best way to blow up stuff.

    DD's friends are sweet and quiet, which is a little strange in this house, since DD is neither.

    DS2 is just making friends in kinder. all the kids in his grade are great to be around. I love to go in an volunteer because they are great kids.

  • I love children... as long as they aren't snotty or very misbehaved. lol. That probably cancels out a lot of children. It's usually not the children that I don't like, it's usually their parents. Which is why I gave up my decision to be a teacher because I was a student teacher for a few months and the things I saw/heard parents say to their kids made me want to pick up a desk and throw it at them!

  • Yes, I love kids. That's why I am a child care provider. I have met a few obnoxious kids but not too many. Then I look at the parents and I see where it comes from

  • Not really. I love my son (obviously) and his cousins, as well as the kids my friends have (the couple of friends who actually have kids), but beyond that I'm not really a kid person.
