    Why do people hate kids?

    I mean, I see people on these forums talking about kids and babys like they are sent from Hell to make their lives miserable.


    I am a teacher in training and honestly wtf is wrong with people saying such bad stuff about children. :O

    You were a kid too you know.

    Of course they can be annoying be they can also be endearing and nice + polite.

    Often times I am stunned by what they score on certain tests which I have to check.


    And I am a man by the way, so no stereotypical woman who is crazy about kids.

    Not everyone likes the same things.

    And imo saying things like "You were a kid too you know." is like saying "Hey you've had diarrhea once too you know", doesn't mean you have to like it.

    you are a teacher in training, that shows why you don't grasp the concept of "having a baby will ruin my wife"

    I hate kids that are little brats with no manners, which means I hate their parents just as much. Kids that are well behaved, I have no problems at all with.

    And you should not hate children for no reason at all. I am not saying you should like them but I don't understand why you hate them.

    You still have not answered WHY you HATE them? (if you do, that is)

    And it's not the same, the sentence you used is like comparing apples and oranges.


    Diarrhea is generally unpleasant. Being a kid is not.

    Many times, I make a blanket statement about hating kids because there are seemingly so many these days raised by either uncaring or unqualified parents.

    I don't dislike kids, I don't mind them if they are over 3 + years old.

    Babies are annoying, they need a lot of attention and you need to put a lot of effort into having and educating a child. Most people that don't like babies/kids are generally between their 24~ or something, I don't see how that is relevant but lots of different ages hate babies but that's just how I see it.

    This would make an amazing sig quote, if not for the fact that it would make people think I hate kids. +1 internets to you sir.

    On topic, kids have a lot of awesome to them, but they have a lot of horrible too. Your personality type determines which traits you see more of, and which mean more to you. If you're the type to be seriously upset by the negatives that come with kids, then you're probably not going to like them much. Just how it is.

    And this is another reason why a lot of children are evil!

    Brilliant.

    OT: I can handle kids in small doses, I dont really feel the aspiration to look after them for extended periods of time, unless they were my own. Plus the ones that are brought up wrong, become such little shits.

    Because I do not have the patience for them. Seriously, 30 minutes with a 12 year old and I want to rip his head off...
    The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it... You can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    Not really, i think in the past there were even more kids that had that type of situation, but now we have internet and the information go everywhere and don't stay in a small place

    I don't 'hate' kids but I never want them.

    1. They cost a lot of money.

    2. They are loud ALL the time.

    3. You need to spend much time with them because they can hurt themselves or get lost.

    4. They only care for themselves (especially teenagers).

    That being said I do like kids but I don't want to have my own. BUT I will be the best uncle ever

    1: Because society on an individual level is becoming more self centered and lazy.
    2: Because kids (of all ages) are raised worse today than they used to be. The more misbehaved children people see in public, the less they like the idea of having kids themselves.

    Also as a guy, I hope to one day have multiple children.

    I think kids are great for some odd reason, despite being 18 and in high school.

    The only ones I can't stand are the young adolescents that thinks it's cool to be cynical, there's no comforting them without them rejecting it and being an asshole about it.
