attitude towards bringing children into a less than idea home environment. This really nonplusses me and other intelligent, educated, and civilized people to no end. No child should be brought up in want and impoverishment. However, there are people who see nothing wrong with bringing children into and up in impoverished conditions.
Studies have repeatedly shown how impoverishment have deleterious and detrimental effects upon children physically, psychologically, emotionally, and mentally. Poor children are doomed from the start, they are behind academically and tend to be disadvantaged in life because of decreased socioeconomic opportunities. Throughout childhood, they have poor and inferior nutrition, poor or no health or medical care and the other pathologies associated with poverty. Parents who knowingly bring their children into and up in poverty are selfish and irresponsible to say the least. They are also unthinking and quite selfish.
Responsible, educated, and intelligent parents THINK, they DON'T have children unless the socioeconomic conditions are in order and are feasible regarding giving their children a good quality of life with myriad educational opportunities and other quality of life opportunities.
Newflash: Poverty is NOT good,especially for children. Poverty is not chic and noble, in fact, it is quite toxic. Children should NOT be brought up in poverty.
Why SOME people just DON'T get THIS at all? What are THEY "thinking", if one can classify it as such? Inverse logic is alive and well with some folks, it seems. Up is down. Yes, to such people, poverty is grand and good. Really? Poverty impairs children in more ways than one. Why the glorification of poverty among some people? Let's discuss this?
Because sex is a strong driving force. making babies stems somehow from sex
Think. It's free entertainment. What are you going to do all day if you can't afford anything else?
I think people should have to take parenting classes and get a liscence before being allowed to reproduce. They should also have to prove their financial ability to take care of any future children. It would solve a lot of problems.

As my wife and I struggle to put enough money away to buy a home and plan for having a child, I'm left wondering why others don't have to be responsible for their own lives. I was at Sam's Club the other day, and was in line behind two full shopping carts full of racks of ribs, tenderloins, pork...

I believe drugs and alcohol are the root cause of all problems involving crime and poverty.We take drugs to feel good. Pure and simple.Sadly, there are consequences with drug and alcohol use, abuse and addiction. It is easy to down play the negative influence of drug use in and on society. We want...
