8 Signs You Are Not Ready to Have Kids

8 Signs You Are Not Ready to Have Kids

Last week I had a conversation with someone and what they said to me literally made my jaw drop. That conversation is what ended up inspiring me to write this post today. This person is a married adult in his mid 30’s and the conversation progressed from talking about how he wants kids of his own to taking about changing diapers. As soon as I said it he said that he doesn’t have to worry about changing diapers because his wife will be changing them all.

What??

I tried telling him how that’s completely ignorant, unfair and just plain immature. His response was, and I quote: “I can’t deal with poop. I will end up puking all over the baby”. So, what, he can never be alone with his own child because he won’t change a diaper? I am sure his attitude will change if he ever becomes a parent himself, but frankly I hope he thinks long and hard before procreating – especially since this same person can barely take care of himself.

Being a parent is the hardest job there is and it’s not for the feint of heart. I was infuriated when I walked away from that conversation and as a result I compiled this list of other signs that someone might not be ready to have children of their own. In addition to not being able to deal with poop.

1. You cringe when you go out to eat and get seated at a table next to a family with small kids.

I’ve been on both sides of this scenario (hey, I was young and immature once upon a time), so I truly do understand how loud kids can get under someone’s skin. With that being said, I have also been that mom who had to take her child out of a restaurant and wait with him in the car until the rest of her family finished their meals. It’s one of those things that you don’t fully comprehend until you are a parent and find yourself in that situation. And if you think for one minute that it won’t happen to you – BWAHAHAHA!!!!!!

2. You don’t like to share your food.

Even though my kids are 8 & 11, I still have a tough time with this one. It’s no secret that I really, really love food and sometimes sharing it with my kids is hard. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out with the kids and they don’t like their food, so I end up giving them mine. The struggle is real, guys, but you do it because your kids are more important than you are and they need to eat more than you do.

3. You think nothing of spending $150 on a pair of jeans.

Do you know how many diapers you can get for $150? I’m being serious. I used to drop crazy money on clothes, shoes and handbags – until I had kids. People always told me how expensive they were and they weren’t kidding. Having a baby is expensive and unless I hit the lottery, I have much more important things to spend my money on.

4. You don’t like people touching your stuff. Related, you like to have nice stuff.

Once you become a parent you have to be ready to say buh-bye to anything nice, or anything clean in your house, or in your life in general (including yourself some days). My kids have ruined everything I have. They rip stuff, stain stuff, draw on stuff – you name it and they will find a way to destroy it. My oldest thought it would be funny to flush a stick of my deodorant down the toilet one day when he was about 7 years old. $250 later…..

So, see what I mean?

5. You can never even imagine waking up before 7 am on any given day – especially a weekend.

I am lucky that my boys were both sleeping through the night by 9 or 10 weeks old. One of the benefits of formula feeding. But just because they sleep for an 8 hour stretch, it doesn’t mean that the stretch won’t come to an end at 5 am – which is exactly what happened in my case. For the last 11 1/2 years, I have been up by 5:30 am every day.

Every. Single. Day.

We have experimented with different bed times, but no matter what we did, he was still up at the crack of dawn every day. He still is. If you are not ready to give up your precious sleep for your kids, you are definitely not ready to have them.

6. You think that carrying two additional bags of random stuff with you every single time you leave the house is unnecessary.

It’s very necessary. Please trust me when I say that you don’t want to be out of the house without an extra change of clothes for you and baby, snacks, bottles, toys/entertainment, diapers, wipes, lotions and anything else you might need specific to your child. Trust me, being out & about nowhere near home without that one specific squeaky toy -the one that happens to be the only one that will make your baby stop crying is a nightmare scenario.

7. You care too much about what other people think.

Being a parent means that you have to have thick skin. I am not exaggerating when I say that EVERYONE will think they know whats best for your child and they will not hesitate to drop all kinds of unsolicited advice on you and point out everything you are doing wrong. Not only that, you will be judged time and time again for everything you do including, but not limited to how you dress your kids, how you show up at the school drop off, what you pack your kids for lunch, and god forbid if you choose to formula feed instead of breastfeed (and to this day I still get flack for my decision). So if you can’t deal with that – you are probably not ready to be a parent.

8. You decide to get a pet because the pet won’t cry all the time and won’t talk back to you.

This one is pretty self explanatory. You’re too immature to have a baby – and maybe even the pet because frankly, they require some work, too.

Do you have anything to add to the list?

    Wow to the conversation that started this and yes I agree that any or all of the above is cause to rethink having kids as you most likely aren’t ready if any of these do describe you.

  2. Sarah Bailey

    Wow that’s crazy – I don’t have kids, but if I did I would certainly expect my other half to partake in things like changing nappies and he knows it. x

  3. alissa a apel

    OMG I so agree with all of this. Even my Dad back in the day changed diapers. I’m so glad that Travis wasn’t the type of Dad that wouldn’t do this or that. He watched at one point in time 2 babies and 2 two year olds a few days a week. He watched our 2, and my sister’s 2. It worked out well before Emerson was born. My sister watched our 2 a few days a week as well.

  4. Liz Mays

    Yeah the hands off approach would be a deal breaker for me too. I’m all in and I expect the same from him.

  5. Jeanine Macintosh

    I knew from the beginning I was ready to have kids. However, I don’t like many other peoples other kids so I always thought that would be an issue. It’s so not, lol. Mine are my world. This is a great list, I think you’ve got it covered!

  6. Liz Mays

    To be a parent, you have to be soooooo unselfish. It’s the most giving you’ll ever be, I swear.

  7. Lady Lilith

    Lol. This is so true. If you want kids, you need to make major life changes. The kids come first.

  8. Erin

    Given the fact that I occasionally liken my dog to having a toddler(he inhibits random decision getaways & his sleepovers when we want to go out of town aren’t cheep nor are the vet bills associated with animal care) I’m fairly certain my stance of not wanting children will remain in tact for quite a while. Heaven help the next man who wants to marry me, my ex had ideas of grandeur in his head of having 7 children, if not more. Turns out, before we divorced he was 1 into the count, although not with me but whatever- I’m better off without him anyway!

  9. Rorybore

    If you cannot work without interruptions…. because good lord there will be many!! It’s been maybe the hardest adjustment for me – having 3 kids means I never, ever, and I do mean EVER finish anything without a couple of interruptions. This comment alone: 1 request for strawberries and blueberries cleaned, one request for the definition of “horrendous”, the phone rang, and I got a text. Like seriously. The struggle is real.

  10. Amber NElson

    I always knew I was going to have kids. But I can see how they are not for everyone!

  11. toughcookiemommy

    I always wanted to have kids but I have never had a lot of patience for small children. Thank goodness, I was very patient with my own boys when they were little.

  12. Theresa

    Now that mine are older, I can honestly say that this list applies to me now. Diapers, crying babies, squawking kids just aren’t my thing these days. I’m glad I had mine young so I can go buy myself some expensive handbags and jeans now that I am almost kid free and can afford them lol.

  13. Amanda Love

    Totally agree with all of that. I still however pop down $150+ on jeans because they’re the only jeans that fit me right. I don’t think I have anything else to add to the list but I think he’ll change his mind once he does have a child.

  14. Jennifer Williams

    My husband was one that was nauseated with dirty diaper changes and well I found it easier to just change them myself then it was to have to deal with my husband being sick as well and having to clean up after him and change the diaper. It is a phase and it does pass and some people can not handle it but make great parents. I did love watching him learn most of the rest of these lessons though – especially every time he grabbed his slobber covered phone to talk to someone!

  15. ascendingbutterfly

    I am mature enough to be a parent, I just personally don’t want kids. I have always felt this way. I definitely agree that It is certainly not a decision to be taken lightly.Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly

  16. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    Bwahahahaha. I love it! You like to have nice stuff. Yeah, that goes right out the window when you have kids.

  17. Sarah Bailey

    I can only imagine – it goes out the window enough when you get an other half and have to share with them lol. x

  18. Alli Smith

    Thankfully, my husband could change diapers like a pro and he always dealt with the puke – can’t touch that stuff. I always like to tell people that aren’t ready to have children that parenting in a 24 hour job. I totally agree with your 8 signs.

  19. Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas

    Ha! These are some great points. All of them are so relatable – especially the sharing of food and always have someone touching you.

  20. Angelic Sinova

    I definitely agree with this list. I don’t have kids yet but I’m only 24 and I still consider myself to be a kid! I can’t believe he thought he wouldn’t have to change diapers!

  21. Terri Steffes

    LOL, i have heard this conversation myself and saw a dramatic turn around when the baby was born. He really put a clothespin on his nose and used a spatula to carry the diaper to the trash. I totally disagree with the nice stuff statement. I taught my daugher early on to respect the nice things in the house. She always did and when we took her out, she would point to something and say, Nice? and if I said yes, she didn’t touch. I made sure there were things around she could touch and move around in addition to the ones she couldn’t.

  22. Scott

    I would add to make sure you have a stable job and place to live. Your goal is to provide the best for your child, and a stable environment is a must.

  23. milenabarrett

    I have kids and I still cringe everytime someone with kids sits next to us at a restaurant. I love my kids, but honestly am not a kid person. I’m still an awesome mom! (Just don’t touch my things! LOL!)

  24. Jeanette

    Yeah I do know people that thought they would never change a diaper in their life either. My husband learn very quickly that he was going to change diapers. He never really said he wasn’t going to but for the first three days he changed all the diapers because I could hardly move.

  25. irishred13

    These are funny! I still feel that way about my stuff!!

  26. Melissa Ann

    OMG, this is HIGH-larious! No, you will never have nice things again. No you will never have your own food again. You’ll also probably end up sleeping threesies.

  27. brokenteepee

    I don’t have children for a myriad of reasons but I’m a great aunt. I always said I’ll do anything but snot. Snot makes my stomach turn. But when it came down two It I was there with that snot thingie getting the stuff out of my infant niece’s nose. I almost tossed my breakfast but I did what had to be done.

  28. Michelle Myers

    I agree with you but many times people rise to the expectations placed upon them. Sometimes, becoming a parent is not always a well planned event and adults can adapt, change their views, and rise to the challenge.

  29. julieiscocoandcocoa

    #2 is such a struggle! I do this thing where I save the ‘perfect’ bite for the end of the meal (my Dad does it, too). When someone asks for a bite right at the end of a meal I have a hard time not getting livid… And #3, I’m so frugal now it’s ridiculous. I just joined a women’s organization and they are all talking about having too many clothes to fit in their closet and I’m over here like “I own 3 pairs of jeans and a bunch of t-shirts”. Lol.

  30. Ann Bacciaglia

    This is a great post. These are all so true. I will have to share this with my friend who is trying to get pregnant.

  31. CourtneyLynne

    I think you covered it all!!!! Some people really shouldn’t ever have kids. Kids take a lot of work and some people just aren’t cut out for it because they are too selfish & don’t know how to care for others.

  32. maria @ close to home

    LOL I did not spend $150 on jeans until they were out of diapers. In fact I am so old they did not sell 150 jeans when they were babies

  33. Mimi Green

    I totally agree that if you aren’t ready to be a parent you certainly shouldn’t have kids. Nobody signs up saying “Oh I just love poop.” but it has to be done. That is the least of parenting. I’m annoyed by his thinking.

  34. taranoland

    LOL, yup, those are all good reasons. Or maybe a list to work on before you want to start to have kids!! Some people are definitely better off not having them!

  35. Whitney Jordan

    These are hilarious, and oh so true! Though I am not sure you can ever be fully prepared for kids!

  36. Kait

    This is such a great list and as someone who doesn’t have kids and isn’t really sure if I ever will want to, I can wholeheartedly agree with all of these!

  37. CountryLifeCityWife

    I’m turning 40 in less than 3 weeks and I never wanted kids. Not in a mean way, I just knew they weren’t for me. Alas, I married a man with kids and while they’re older, it isn’t easy. I am a lucky one, but I couldn’t agree with this more. Some people think they should because it’s expected. I’m glad I never did and I get the joy of seeing girls grow into women while being a role model.

  38. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    This is a good list for those who are considering having children. I thought I was prepared for kids but I wasn’t. I didn’t realize what all it involved and what all I would have to give up. Regardless, I always put my kids first and even though “poop” would have made me gag before childbirth, it didn’t bother me when my kids were born.

  39. Ora Lee Gurr

    This is a quick way to wake people up to whether or not they are ready for parenthood. Fortunately, my mom raised us all to be good parents, and my husband recognized that poopy diapers are an experience for the mom and dad.

  40. 24/7 Modern Mom™ (@247ModernMom)

    I love this! I’ve had this conversation as well. Also, I hide treats for myself!

  41. meagan

    Haha, this is a great conversation to be had! I’m probably that family that people cringe when they sit next to me at the restaurant. Haha

  42. traceyzimmer

    This post is awesome! I am pregnant right now with my first so I’m hoping I’m ready!

  43. Neely (@Neelykins)

    I dont know I think you could think some of these things and still be ready for kids. Just my opinion.

  44. Enricoh Alfonzo

    Hahah! I love point number 7. This is a brilliant post! I want tons of kids, this only added to my want.
    A while back my big sister was adamant on not having a kid, she was too afraid but I managed to convince her other wise & now she’s like a good & proper mommy. She’s so in love with her baby girl more than anything.
    I really do think things change once you actually have a kid regardless of how you feel about it.

  45. Elizabeth Lampman

    I loved this post. The thing i miss the most is sleep. I used to be able to sleep and take naps before i had my kids. I know eventually they become teenagers that like to sleep in as well lol.

  46. Sequins in the South (@CarlsonLaci)

    Hahahahha love it and so dead on sometimes ppl make me almost back flip on the thoughts they have on having kids or not etc…. Wow lol

  47. Claudia Krusch

    Love your post so much! I agree with so many things! After I had my son I wanted another one so bad, but the doctor said I couldn’t….now I actually feel ok about it!

  48. Kathy

    Wow, I can’t believe that he would say that! If my husband ever said that I would be extremely upset. It certainly isn’t the mothers job to help with kids all the time. Wonderful post to by the way!

  49. alexandria

    I think that a lot of people fall into those categories. It doesnt mean you shouldnt have kids. I hate getting up early, but I do it. I love shopping and havent stopped.I have never touched puke until my daughter puked in my hands and it was no big deal. There are just things you do when you have kids! There’s never a perfect time.

  50. Roxanne Morrison

    I had a good chuckle at most of this, I was one of those who thought I’d never be ready. Mine was a late in life baby & I now wear yard sale clothes, my idea of a social group is a car full of teenagers, and have been known to eat skittles stuck to the car floor but can say that she is the love of my life! I wouldn’t trade a second of it for s $500 purse.

  51. Bonnie @wemake7

    Great post. I cannot believe that someone would say they wouldn’t have to change diapers lol.

  52. Carolyn

    My kids wake up super early too. I miss the days of sleeping in. I also agree with just about all of your points.

  53. Renée ♥

    Great post! Many years ago, my (then) SIL sat on my couch and said, “We are thinking of either having (another) baby or getting a puppy.” That is a direct quote. We *prayed* that they would get a puppy. Sometimes even people who already have babies are not ready to have babies.

  54. Blythe Alpern

    It’s funny, I don’t really like sharing my food, but I never mind sharing it with my nieces or nephew. And I also don’t mind getting up super early to hang with them.

  55. just1mommysopinion

    Can’t change a poopy diaper? Yeah that guy is not even close to ready. Lol. This is a cute post

  56. toughcookiemommy

    I find that most people really have no clue what it takes to have children. We all learned the minute our kids were born, lol.

  57. brittany

    This is so funny. I can’t wait to have kids! if this describes you then maybe having a kids isn’t the best for you lol

  58. Debra Hawkins (@wifeeclectic)

    Oh how I miss sleeping in! It was so nice when I could. My kids are SUPER early risers!

  59. aimlessmoments (@AimlessMoments)

    Great list! lol. The no diaper changing sounds like my husband, and he has kids prior to me. I think he has maybe changed 4 or 5.

  60. Paula

    It’s better now that my son is 5, but I truly remember the phase where I felt LUCKY to get out of the house without some sort of stain / food / booger on me. After awhile I gave up; if it was REALLY obvious I’d change my clothes, but, usually I’d clean up what I could and keep moving. There was also that phase where my son seemed like like to wipe his nose on the butt of my pants … ugh. Anyway, yes, if any of that is grossing you out, OR you somehow think it “couldn’t happen to you?” Oh, it will. It will. It’s just a matter of time until your sweet angel spills / wipes / barfs something on you and you don’t even flinch.

  61. Elayne

    Number 4 rings true to me even after being a mom for 20 years! Leave my stuff alone!

  62. momknowsbest15

    Being a parent is tough and sometimes we learn along the way. I still cant clean up puke so I bought a carpet steamer and my husband tends to it.

  63. Janeane Davis

    This was a fun look at a serious topic. These are definitely signs of people not ready to have children.

  64. Merissa

    I agree with the above and wish people would give a more serious look to the topic before they decide to have children. It’s not just snuggling a cute baby, it’s a lifetime commitment.

  65. Julie @ Running in a Skirt

    Does cleaning up after my dog count? He is pretty messy! It seems like no one is actually every really ready, you just do the best you can.

  66. Annemarie LeBlanc

    These are definite signs that you are not yet ready to have children. In my case, it was the other way around. I had kids and ready or not, I had to face the responsibility. It was a bumpy ride, but we had fun!

  67. Laura Starner

    Wow! I love this list because it is a list of reality. My kids are grown and some days they still wake me up at 7 am. Parenting is a lifetime commitment.

  68. Kiwi

    I guess I am ready to have kids! I am ok with all of that information and who is paying $150 for jeans???

  69. Kristin

    My kiddos always keep me on my toes, I would never pay that much for kids jeans though. No matter how much my tween says her life depends on them. HA!

  70. dawn

    i dont have any kiddies but i would def expect my better half to assist. i think it is soooo important.

  71. Cara (@StylishGeek)

    Very interesting post! I think people have a lot of reasons or another to know when they are ready to be parents. I just know that when anyone makes that life transition, it’s really all about your child and not about you anymore. It’s just is.

  72. Amy Desrosiers

    Ughh! There are far too many ignorant people in this world who should have never had kids. Saying he won’t change a diaper is actually BS…a baby is not a novelty.

  73. Amanda McD

    I had to chuckle reading this! So many of these things were me before kids, but the love of another tends to make things that once seemed important no longer a big deal.

  74. Marielle Altenor

    This reminds me of my SO when we found that I was pregnant. Dude has a stomach made of steel but a little poop sends him into a panic attack. lol I remember getting really upset when I would be busy doing something he would come get me to change our son. That didn’t last long though only the first couple of weeks. After that he got used to it. LOL You definitively cannot be squeamish if you want to have kids!

  75. Kita

    LOL! Some of these are so funny. Men say they won’t change a diaper but when left alone, they have no choice.

  76. My Journey With Candida

    LOL… you should have told me this over 40 years ago. Too late now!

  77. Rebecca Swenor

    This is a great list of signs to tell someone they are not ready to have kids and you are right about the pets. The pets are just like kid. Immaturity is something a lot of people don’t see themselves as until it is put in their face. This I will have to share with my niece and nephew. Thanks for sharing the signs

  78. Jamie

    I had a convo today with a young guy at work about having nice things. I told him I gave that up when I decided to have kids.

  79. Melisa

    I’m always floored by some of the things childless people say. My favorite sign that someone isn’t ready to have kids, is the ones who eat out every night and can’t cook at all. I’m sorry, but if you can’t bake a chicken breast, you shouldn’t be having kids.

  80. Elizabeth O.

    That was a pretty annoying conversation. I would have said more. It’s tough to be a parent and I hope men who are planning to have a baby realize that. It’s not always the woman who needs to take care of the baby, it’s a partnership. Jeez. Also, those things that you have listed there are spot on, most of my friends that do not have a child are like that.

  81. Jill Conyers (@jillconyers)

    All of our friends were starting families sooner than my husband and I. That was ok. I definitely wasn’t ready to have kids sooner.

  82. Agnes Dela Cruz

    When you become a parent time is the most needed and essential part of the whole deal.

  83. Inspiring Kitchen

    Yes, these are all signs that you are not ready to have kids. When you become a parent, you become selfless.

  84. Cindy Ingalls

    Becoming a parent isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay. When you’re ready you’ll know.

  85. Ai Sakura

    You’ve nailed it… nodding my head as I’m reading this post. Parenting really isn’t for everybody and it’s better some people realise it before it’s too late. Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  86. Ryan Sales Escat

    These are true I have a friend who is not ready for being a parent but he is already a dad. Maybe because he was still young but that’s not the reason. He should do his obligation.

  87. Eileen xo

    I know a few who had kids and should have read this first! So true! I love the $150 for jeans…I am so with you. My oldest turning 24 next month and still here….its a long road and if not ready, they will be deer in the headlights! Loved this post!

  88. Jamie

    These are all so spot on it is just funny! I actually know a couple that are wanting to have a child…I don’t think they are ready and I think they are in for the SHOCK of a lifetime when reality sets in!!

  89. Karlaroundtheworld | Karla

    The list just screams true. The unprepared ones should first learn to have empathy, that leads to realization or self-awareness. That guy that can’t deal with poop however, needs to grow up and have his maturity get past 18 though!

  90. Choudry Nazma

    I actually agree with all of these.but than I also have to say having kids is so much fun …

  91. Heather (@TownsendHouse1)

    This is hilarious! My husband had never changed a diaper or held a newborn when our oldest was born. And surprise, I had to have an emergency c-section and was unable to get out of bed to change those first diapers. He was a trooper! I do sometimes still struggle with what others think though – especially when we go to a restaurant.

  92. Stacy O'Brien Kripas

    These are true! I agreed. We have responsibilities in our kids.

  93. Debra Fazio-Rutt

    Ha! This list is so true. Your life isn’t about you when you have kids – it’s about them and making sure their needs are taken care of first! though I do like to treat myself every few years to a really expensive handbag (instead of jeans!)

  94. tp keane

    These are some great preparation tips, and I can concur that they are ALL true. But it’s different when it’s your own.

  95. Erin (@ErinShebish)

    Ha! This is all spot on! But I’ll admit… I still don’t like sharing my food. LOL!

  96. Lori Felix

    I’ll have to ask my daughter about some of these situations to see if she’s ready to have kids. I can’t wait to become a grandmother lol.

  97. Amy Jones

    haha the food sharing stuff is funny, but you are right, if your not willing to share you cant have more responsibilities.

  98. Lexie Lane

    Absolutely! I agreed in all of these. I never felt one of these signs before, so I’m ready that time.

  99. Louise bishop

    I had to laugh. A lot of the things we think we are set on suddenly change when a little one arrives. Parenthood definitely changes a person.

  100. Rachel Mouton

    This is awesome! I think I just figured out I’m not ready to have kids…only my kids are 17, 11, & 9 LOL

  101. Stephanie Pass

    LOL! I think most new parents are in for a total awakening no matter how prepared they think they are. Kids change everything. I’m sure his wife will bring him around.

  102. Ana Fernandez

    well.. “It wont happen to me” haha! I know I will be there in some point of my life haha

  103. Barefoot by the Sea (@barefootbysea)

    This is the best post I’ve read in a while and I could agree more with your points! I have 2, ages 7 and 11. I gave up designer clothes, convenience, sleeping in, beautiful furniture and delicious, comfortable restaurant meals long ago. What I gained is a house full of memories and love. Anyone who can’t see the worth in that, doesn’t deserve that magic of having kids! I’m new here but would love for you to come visit http://www.barefootbysea.blogspot.com @barefootbysea I’m in NH but born and raised in Amherst:)

  104. Lisa Rios

    I agree, parenting is not an easy job at all & you need to check yourself before you plan out for a kid in your life. This a great checklist for anyone to check themselves & make a better decision.

  105. Hannah Adkins

    Some people are way to immature to have kids. I know its super hard being a parent and I know I’m totally not ready for it yet.

  106. tonyacoleman

    That was just hilarious! I’m glad my hubby isn’t afraid of a good old diaper full of poop!

  107. Susannah

    Heehee. Oh goodness, this is far too accurate! I’m pretty stinking glad my husband is totally ok with changing poopy diapers!

    Lol and this is why everyone should read this post before deciding to have children. The amount of mothers and fathers who quite frankly should not be parents is unreal.

    Adding to the list are sleepless nights in the early months and not even having your hair washed or combed or even visit the comfort room for hours. Its because the baby doesnt want you out of sight. Its insane but worth all.

    Oh gosh, that’s not good. I hope his wife gives him a swift, metaphorical, kick in the butt when she hears about this. Parenting is a partnership.

    This is so true!! I’m going to share this with my younger friends who are ready to start having kids.

    These are some great points! Especially the dropping $150 on a pair of jeans!

    People definitely see parenting differently than they did! Thanks for making this post!

    LOL…I have kids and love kids but I still cringe when I am placed beside a child or children who do not know how to behave
