    Why the f*** do you have a kid?

    This really makes you wonder, do some people deserve to be parents?? Why did you have children? What makes someone a bad parent? Is it crazy things like this? Or something else?

      Gotta be something in the water , or the burgers lol

      It is serious and I hate it!! big people who bully little people!!
      If it was an adult they would be charged with assault
      If it was an animal , cruelty and abuse
      But small humans , well...its up to the individual to do what they can, immediatley  smile

      Well, I was a dad at 22... It wasn't something we planned, just something that happens when 2 careless kids seek to satisfy the hungry hormonal urges that rack the bodies of our youth. In any case, I wasn't a very good father, because I was just to young to know what it took to be a good father. I had no training other then the example of my own father who worked 2 jobs most of my childhood so I didn't get to see him much. Still I wasn't a bad father either, but I certainly would have been a better father if I had my kids when I was older and wiser.

    Well, to be completely fair, don't see any really bad parents in any of the pics. But I am cultural and moral relativist though smile

    Oh, and thanks for the giggles smile

    I'm asking what makes a bad parent. Keep looking through them.. first page isn't bad at all. Wearing "abnormal" clothes with your kid is cool. Its the gun pics I don't care for. You're welcome smile

      Mishaposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I looked through the whole page Cole. The gun is a variation of AK-47. What's that alarming about it? Firefighters take pics of their kids with water nozzles (or however else that thing is called in English), soldiers with guns. It's all how people are smile

      If anything I would mark the most silly the ice-cream one, cause obviously at that age it does not do any good to a kid.

      Or, and that pic you just posted, a pure fun. I did this to my kids, and still do sometimes. They love to hang head down. smile

    LOL I looked through a few more pages, some pics are funny, most captions are retarded and don't show anything besides author ignorance. Obviously s/he never had kids. Sorry, I am just a relativist and can't help it smile

    Oh, and to answer a title question - because it is the best you can ever experience in this life.  smile

    I have to agree with Misha on this because people raise their children differently. It might be a cultural difference, a familial difference, etc.

    Some families go hunting together, so they teach their children early about guns. Some ride horses early. Some learn to sing and dance early. My family always have been rough with the boys so they won't grow to be soft. My grandson, in particular, likes roughness. If you do not put a little roughness in playtime with him, he thinks you are weak. If he saw that picture of the kid upside down, he will turn to me and ask that I do that to him. My granddaughter does not like roughness, so we teach her to be dainty, as all the ladies in my family are.

    At least the woman in the picture didn't throw him down or anything. The child might enjoys that.

    There are some things I would not do, but, I am sure when parents do things with their children, they are still being good parents, although some may not agree. Some of who we are come out when raising our children. I would question it if the parent is actually beating their child, starving their child, and etc

    It was  Kahlil Gibran who said that children are love's longing for itself. I find the love of children to be a powerful force in my life.

    I knew it was time for me to have a baby when my husband got pricked with an HIV needle while working in the ICU.  I had always wanted to have kids, it just never seemed like the right time.  I love my husband and when he had his final test, a year after he was stuck, I didn't go back on birth control.  We had been using condoms, instead of birth control pills, for the year that he was going through his antibody tests.  The fright that we got from the "HIV scare" made us consolidate our relationship, and when we did that, we both decided it was time.  I was 33, so I wasn't getting any younger.  I am so glad I made the decision I did, because my daughter is so lovely.  I am truly blessed to have her.

      Hi I don't know if you shared this in the post we had last week about HIV. So you mean by having a baby from your husband is very clear that he did not used condom anymore. So in this case did you have HIV test already? I was just curious if it did infect you via sex. Sorry to ask. How about the baby did you take the blood test?

    I have a kid because she makes me complete, wouldnt trade it for all the riches in the world . She is two and loves me unconditionally and she means the world to me. Initially it may be family pressure or any reason but your world changes after you have one. Her smile and her little rumblings are worth all it. I dont know why but i am proud to be a mom and a good one to her.

        My dad always says that interest is always loved more than the actual sum lol this is a popular saying in hindi which is used in this context. I think that being parents is the most overwhelming job but worth everything in return

    Every parent does stuff they regret later.

    You never know about kids. Kids from great homes can turn into Jeffrey Dahmer sometimes and kids from horrible homes can do great things sometimes. Kids come out as somebody on day one, a person with a personaity--it isn't all about the parents.

      I reckon that is true. I have twin four year old "identical"granddaughters.. different as chalk and cheese.. always were from birth.

    I do agree myself to the statement, but we must also remember that as Parents we have a key role to the play in the development of our children. They learn through our examples: we are the very first teacher to them. “Train up a child the way he should go that he may learn what is good from bad.”

      Mind you, I'm not condoning or minimizing child abuse. It's abhorrent and I do think it's damaging. I'm just saying parents don't have total control on how kids come out and thank God they don't. My parents had me when they were very young and very troubled and they were quite abusive and neglectful. I was very angry with them for years, but now that they have been dead quite a long time and I have had children of my own and see how very, very hard it is to raise kids even when you DO have your sh*t together (which they did not), it is easier for me to forgive them. I feel sad for them, that they suffered so and missed so much in their painful messy lives. And I am basically OK. I have a nice life. I'm not an axe murderer or a child molester.

      So it isn't like, make some mistakes, wreck the kid. You're not HELPING the kid if you act like an abusive ass, but the world is bigger than you and your dumb mistakes. That's all I'm saying. smile

    Dang, the sheer number of amateur porn wanna-bes and teenage mothers (and amateur porn wanna-be teenage mothers) on that site is horrifying. When is taking naked pictures of yourself and posting them all over the internet EVER a good idea, let alone with a kid in the room!?!

    I have kids because the Dr told me I could never have children, and he was wrong. I love them more then I could say, and would never allow anyone to hurt them. I have no idea about those pictures, I wasnt there. They could have been taken way out of context. Sure at certain ages there are things a child should never be exposed to, but for example, that one of the girl in bed, in her underwear...we have no idea if that was on purpose. She looked to me as if she had just woken up. I happen to somtimes sleep naked. If my kids sneaked into the room, when they were little they often did without waking me, then someone ran in, threw the blanket off me, and took a pic...well..how would that look? And the guns? sorry, I own a gun. My husband owns a gun. We use them to protect our chickens and rabbits from predators. And , I am sorry, to kill bambi.(my oldest went last fall with her father.) Without it, we would not have meat in the winter. We taught our children young, to repsect guns, proper gun saftey...my husband was na eagle scout.. not to use them as toys, proper handling and an understanding of there use, rather then fear. The young kids, about the myspace profile? I saw no drugs or ciggarettes in that one. Just some kids that are going to have to grow up fast. At least they are together. She isnt being left to do it all on her own.
    I know all too well soem of  the things that make a bad parent, and you cant always take a picture of it.
