I know I lot of people who have been told by their parents that they were an accident or that mom didn't have enough money for an abortion. A few times I have read on here that their mom said one of the kids was unwanted. Why would you tell this to a child or adult?

There is no harm in telling your kid they were unplanned or an accident.  It's when you make a point to let them know they were unwanted that is bothersome.

I know I was technically an accident.  So was my brother. 

Quoting EDDES:

 I have met some idiots that have told their children that they were accidents.

Some people have the class and the common sense of a Cockroach that is why they are so unhappy they just want to spread it around.sarcasmIgnorance is a Real Kick in the Head and misery loves company.

No, no. If a person I knew belittled their children like that is when I would cut ties.


Quoting Aslen:

Why? They can't help what their parents say to them


Quoting BeAmour:

This.



If I did, I'd more than likely disassociate myself with that person.





Quoting christina0607:

I have never met a single person who was told that.

My dd was a surprise, not an accident. That's how I like to think about it. But I would never tell her that she was an accident even if she was. What's the point of that?

One of my friends was told that her mom wanted to abort her. She was broken to pieces.

 my mom was told that by 2 awful aunts.  apparently when my grandma got pregnant with her (she was the 3rd child) her aunts (dad's sister) told my grandparents to abort her and said they would give the money to help.  my grandparents refused.
