What makes people unthinkingly have children without considering important socioeconomic
Its called ,our mindless bilogical addiction ! ......If it wasn't for the lack of impule control .If we as mankind actually thought before breeding ,we would never have children , humankind would die off !.....:-}
I totally agree with the above post! I have often wondered this, myself. It all boils down to the fact that some people just do not think, at all. Children cost money. I am personally waiting to have children, for a few more years. For one, my significant other and I are not married, yet and I am also hoping to expand in my career, which would bring in more income. I was reading an article the other day about the expense of children in a year and it was extremely high. There are many things to take into consideration before being careless, but a lot of people don't think about that and it's part of the reason why the world is like it is.
I don't know! And it is driving me insane! Once a woman that my husband works with came up to me and asked why we hadn't started a family. I told her that I was a full-time college student and we couldn't afford it. She waved that off and stated the government used to pay for her child's health bills then started complaining that she had to pay for them herself. It's her child and she doesn't even want to pay for his/her bills?! Why would parents be so rude to their own child? Children deserve better. It's a shame there are people who don't even consider their own children as deserving attention, affection, and all the little goodies they should have.
Religion plays its role in this. In some religions once you are joined with another person its okay to go crazy producing lots of offspring/ The result? Poverty and more of the same.
I believe that some of the thinking is that you should have plenty of expendable income before starting a family, but the average (not rich) person also thinks WHEN will I have enough money to start a family. If most of us waited until we felt we had enough money to start a family, not many of us would have kids. You figure it out as you go and make ends meet.
That being said, I mean this with a little common sense....not in the Octo-Mom kinda craziness. I think the attitude that "we'll never have enough so we might as well start while we are still young enough" is the majority of families. However, there are those that take this attitude to the extreme....like neither Mom or Dad have a job, etc. This errs on the side of irresponsibility.
Factors...their upbringing, their morals, their local economy, their maturity level, caught up in the moment and had an "accident", etc. The reasons are endless. I just hate it because of the home life it creates for the kids and because of the burden that it places on taxpayers when parents can't or (in some cases) refuse to take care of their own kids. Lots of people fall on hard times and need assistance, but no one should make a stay-at-home career out of it.
Socioeconomic status, religion, and education all factor in here.
Religion can be key. Some religions push really heavily for children and some push really heavily against contraception of any sort. That's when peer pressure can come into play and if you're involved in a church where everyone is having children and you're being pressured to have children, some people may eventually give in because they want to feel worthwhile within their religious community. As for birth control, when you're guilted into believing using it is a sin, you aren't just going to stop having sex with your spouse/significant other, so pregnancies are bound to happen.
Education is another thing. Okay, it can be given that the vast majority of people understand how the body works and everyone knows that sex can lead to pregnancy. But that said, not many people understand how menstruation cycles work (if you aren't using birth control) and so they aren't having unprotected sex responsibly because they just don't understand or know how. A lot of religions (and for a long time, public schools and conservative communities) pushed teaching abstinence instead of responsible sex practices, so people just don't know how to go about gaining access to birth control. It's also been statistically proven that the less educated people are, the more likely they are to have children (because of these factors and more).
Lastly, their socioeconomic class plays a heavy hand. Some people can't afford to regularly purchase birth control. They can't afford to have the medical procedures to make it impossible to have more kids. Birth control can be expensive and it's unrealistic to assume that people in relationships will just abstain from sex entirely "until they have enough money" (which could never happen, as when is enough, enough?).
Some people handle having children very irresponsibly and they know it, but a VAST majority of the poor people who have several children just don't have the access to the same things wealthier people do, so they can't help themselves the way wealthier people do.
This is the SECOND BEST ANSWER. Clear and very intelligent take on the situation at hand. I totally agree with this answer. Rated 99.99%.
The wealthier people tend to have no more than two children. This weay even if they lose some of their fortune that can still swing the best schools and thus the best jobs for their offspring.
