    Children, when they are little they step on your toes, when they grow up they step on your heart.

    Too much heartache and pain from my experience.

    Ever wonder what your own parents' Pros and Cons were at the time? Mine were thankful for their parents and shared a desire to parlay the debt of gratitude by providing a home for children of their own; each of us have done the same.

    Amen to that; there is nothing worse than other people's badly behaved revolting offspring. Even the well behaved ones are barely tolerable.

    I can't help feeling that if everyone for say, two decades, took a vow not to have children and stuck to it, our poisoned planet would have a chance to recover from what we've done to it. Life could be quite a bit different, many sci-fi stories have been written based on this concept.

    This describes one of my ex-girlfriends to a tee.

    If we had listened enough to our parents, maybe we wouldn't have any children, but we thought they were exaggerating.

    They force us to grow up and they keep us alert and so do our grandchildren.

    Well said. The returns on investment are many... resulting in non-net sum zero gains.

    "We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

    That being said, Earth's future ecosystems will be fine no matter what, albeit in the long run, give or take a couple hundred million years.

    Kids are what makes the world go 'round.

    Actually, if not for you Trev33, we would all cease to exist.

    Its no coincidence that this site was initially developed shortly after the arrival of my first son.

    Suddenly the pub wasn't an option, how to fill those evenings? Write a chess site.

    Pros : No kids, no RHP.
    Cons : Everything else. (I joke 😉 )

    A bunch of kid-haters around here [not Russ and GB] mostly atheists but I see a couple so called Christians [no surprise there] as well joining in the kid-hating discussion. Dislike or intolerance of kids is the result of selfishness and greed simply because your time and money is diverted to another person. Its amazing how many parents resent that.

    Not that is worth anything to you atheists but the Bible says:

    Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them..(Psalms 127:3-5 KJV)
