The world is such a crazy place now. I believe I would hesitate to bring a new life into this world.

exactly I don't regret it my kids love people and have everything going for them.thanks biz whiz
I'm so glad to get an opinion from a Father. So many of our youth today don't have a caring father like yourself. I love your attitude and your love for your family.
Thank you, Mary. But your feelings also come from a good place. You care so much about life that you don't want to see anyone suffer. That is such a beautiful characteristic.
I wish we could teach the younger generation the old fashioned morals and ideals I grew up with, but it seems they are too busy with their own social life and video games to even have discussions with us "old folks".
Oh, Bob....I worry about my seven grandchildren's future. Thanks for your views on this question.
Oh my goodness u 2. Got to an elementary school and see the kids eye light up when they learn something about themselves. Go to college and see the work students are doing there. Watch people at the mall or park. Look behind the curtain u c.
I think about my three grandchildren, 2 1/2, 5 and 7 too, and do a whole lot of praying. This is a tough question, Mary.
oh please don't hesitate we just try to teach the meaning of life . read quran my dear
Congrats to you Shelley. I know what a happy time this is for you. I had 4 daughters, and I wouldn't take a million dollars for any one of them. I'm sure you will be a wonderful Mother.
Yeah just ake a look in the Bible where A brother killed his other brother. It has been a crazy place way long before today. If there weren't othrs who had children after that we would not be here at all.
Rosie, you are so right. The world has always been a crazy place, and I don't see it changing for the better, either. I wish I could be more optimistic about the future of mankind.
Jackie, I have to agree with you on this subject. I hate to be pessimistic, but I see so much evil in the world, I would hesitate for sure.
I hate to be pessimistic too; who wants to take anyone's hopes & dreams but how much worse to see a child in the middle of a murderous mess or to have to be hiding & running with them? Parents threw children off mountains to keep them from to
I love and cherish my children and grandchildren, but I would be lying if I said I don't worry about their future. Good viewpoint on this.
I do try to be optimistic about the future of this crazy world. There is so much hate and terror in the world today. Maybe I just want to spare another being from living through it. Yes, there have always been problems; they seem to me to be worse.
I understand, Mary. You're such a lovely person! The answer was veiled in my first response:
'the Divine is still in charge.'
I never think otherwise. My continued love to you today. Have a great W/End
Congratulations Chase. While my daughter makes me happy and gives my life meaning; we need to be careful of thinking a child is going to give us personal happiness. Too many teenage girls make that mistake. We need to already be happy inside.
Chase, congrats on having a baby in your life. I just had two brand new Great Granchildren,and I will love and cherish them all the rest of my life. The parents of these babies plan their births.
You are certainly right about that!
Thanks, Debra. you have certainly added a good opinion on my question!
Maybe the hesitation you and I feel, is the fact that we are realistic. I do have hope for the future, but at the same time, I am worried.
Thanks goodness there are optimistic people in the world like yourself. I wish I had a better attitude!
Thanks for this great comment. I look at my Grandchildren, and can't help but be concerned for their future.
Oh, Stephen...I could get on my "soap box" and rant about all the negative changes I've seen just recently. I am unhappy with the state of affairs of our country, the homeless, the veterans we don't help enough, the abused children, etc.etc.
McKent, You summed up my feelings so well. Thanks.
As a Mother of four wonderful girls, I have to say they turned out great, but I would hesitate to bring another child into this crazy world we live in today.
I agree with having a child is a life-time commitment . However, I disagree with financially responsible being a need for private schools or exclusive neighborhoods. There are plenty of good public schools in safe neighborhoods.
Yes, I agree with you about public schools. The private schools are for people who do not like public schools. The food is easier to find in modern times or the old ways. Anytime is good for some people. I like your comment.
Private school and exclusive neighborhood aren't necessary.
That's a rather elitist way of thinking.
I disagree. It's always a good idea to bring a new baby into the world.
Whatever the circumstances, there are many loving couples who are anxious to adopt.
There are also many willing and eager to help.
