My probably unpopular confession

I do not like other peoples kids. I love mine, I have 1 who is awesome. But when it comes to others kids I cringe at the thought of being around them. I hate it when my nieces and nephews want to stay all night because I have to pay attention to them. Tonight dh nieces stayed all night and I decided to work late. I can't explain this feeling but I just get too aggravated.

What about OPK (other peoples kids) do you not like?  Is it everywhere or just when they are put in your care? Do you feel you are put upon by the other parents?

I agree, although the one exception is my SS.

He may not be 'mine', but I love that booger.

I don't dislike other kids besides my own. I dislike caring for other kids besides my own. If I don't have to babysit, feed, discipline, or any of that other caretaking stuff for your child, I am pretty sure they are absolutely the cutest things walking.  I even think they are cute when they are mid-tantrum because they aren't my problem.

I'm not like that--I really like most kids, including the more "spirited" ones :-)  But I don't blame or judge people who dislike kids, provided that they're still kind to them.  I think a lot of people feel like you do, OP.

I think a lot of women are like that, I know several. But im not, I love my nephews and niece endlessly, and want to spend as much time as possible with them. I also babysit for my friends often, and let my son have friends over every day. Maybe it's because I only have one child of my own? But I love other peoples kids! :)
