Do you like kids?

Here's what I mean...I like my children, I LOVE my children. Not only would I die for them, I live for them. I however DO NOT like other people's kids! There's only a few I'd say I love and even fewer that I'd say I liked. Do you like other people's kids? Are you honest if you don't? I have told a friend of a very ill behaved child that he cannot come over if she cannot control him. She knows I don't like him. No one ever asks me to babysit because anyone that knows me knows that I generally don't like kids. (I will say that I never ask anyone to watch my kids because I know I won't return the favor).

  • Good for you for saying it out loud. I don't much like kids either for the same reasons. I have encountered so many poorly behaved kids you'd think apes were raising them. I'm hoping I'll like older kids better than the young elementary kids but I"m kill me.

  • I don't even like my own kids (some times...when they're REALLY misbehaving, which hasn't happened in a while). I still love 'em and would give my life for them, but they have a way of pushing certain buttons *sigh*.

    That said, I will tolerate other kids other than my own. If they are well behaved, I have no problems being around them. If they are not, get them away from me. I'm just not a "kid" person. I envy people who are. I tried being in the nursery at church...hated it. I tried working at a day care in college...hated that as well. I've come to terms with not being a kid person.

    Plus, I'm not really a "people person" either. I'd rather have 1 or 2 close friends than be in a crowd of people I don't know.

  • Yes, I do. I love my kids and I genuinely enjoy being around other people's children as well.

  • I'm the same way, I do not like children....just MY children.

  • Not sure that makes me a snob. I like old people, does that help?

  • I LOVE children! I love mine the most, but I love being around other children as well. Sure some are bratty and mean, but that is usually a product of their parents, so I don't want to hang out with those parents anyway :)
