What is the purpose of having children?
Aside from ensuring the continuing existence of the human species, why have children?
My sons just make me a more well rounded person. They teach me things through their eyes, and help me to keep my priorities straight. It is easier to stay on the hard road when you have people behind you that count on you. When you are really sick and can barely hang on they give you the courage to fight and win.
I do not view my sons as serving a purpose because I do not own them. They are just two men I brought into the world who I helped to shape in some way for better or worse. However, they are the only thing I can leave on this planet since they carry on my DNA, so if they do serve a purpose it is survival of our family name.
You have to have a child, watch him or her grow and learn in order to fully understand why people have children. Granted, some people should not. If a person is to self-absorbed in his own importance and does not recognize the responsibilities that go with being a parent, they should not have children--my opinion--no Bible verse or writing by some scholar to back it up--just an opinion.
Ideally, families enhance our living experience. We share traditions, support each other, and make memories together. It's pretty sad to see someone who is alone over the holidays or an elderly person at the end of life with no one to offer companionship/advocacy.
