Why you shouldn’t have kids

Primary tabs

Recently my Twitter timeline was filled with banter over a controversial column written in the local newspaper. The column was similarly titled, but despite the broad statement I found that it was very specific to economic and emotional factors. This saddened me, given the size of the soapbox the writer was given.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think people should have kids to save their relationship, or to serve as a long term meal ticket or risk putting families into poverty. However; I think people have forgotten the reason why people have kids.
