Top 10 Reasons to Not Have Children

A lot of people want children when they grow up, but I've made my choice and decided not to get children. Today, I'll list reasons why not to get children. Keep in mind, this list doesn't have to stop you from getting children, if you want children, that's okay and it's perfectly legal.
The Top Ten
1 It can be stressful

It sucks to deal with kids throwing tantrums everyday, why don't leave them at the orphanage?

2 It ruins your body

It is okay not to have children, but some people don't realize that they have been kids once as well. It's stupid to assume that all kids will become serial killers or bullies. Even though this list isn't encouraging people to don't get pregnant, I don't really see the point of it

I have a nice hourglass shaped body, but if I were to get pregnant, my body would be ruined and I wouldn't be able to get my shape back.

If I ever change my mind about being childfree in the future, I'll adopt a tween or teen instead.

3 They can be brats

I watched a Video about a boy throwing a fit about a computer, so he's not allowed on any computer ha he shouldn't be allowed on a computer that is so funny that his parent say just kidding so he is not allow on a computer.

4 They'll spend all your money

From Babies to College, you'll spend over $250,000, and that doesn't include college. Just imagine having multiple kids.

Bruh, these children have been buying anything online or in the store with the credit card without permission.

It's partly true, but who cares! It's worth it!

5 Overpopulation

So much of the world's forests are on fire and they're emitting carbon instead of capturing carbon! Also microplastics making humans and other animals sick. So much farmland, and livestock are as numerous as us but aren't part of natural balancing ecosystems.

6 They cry a lot as babies and little kids

I've only recently learned that they can wake up and cry at even 3am and 5am because I've gotten woken up by a neighbor's baby who is a now a little kid and they still scream and wake me up.

I won't let Brats in my place because they will throw tantrums, act childish, be too loud, and more so I won't let them in my place.

I'm autistic and I hate loud noises such as little kids screaming and fire alarms going off.

7 Less freedom
8 They may hate you

I'm a 13 year old and I love my parents regardless!

Especially if they're teenagers.

9 If they drop out of school, they'll have to live with you
10 More responsibilities
The Contenders
11 They will ruin your life forever

This reminds me of a fact - a scientifically proven fact that couples without children are the happiest.

Look it up if you doubt.

12 You'll most likely clean up after them
13 They could be a criminal or serial killer
14 If they get in trouble, it's your problem

That's not exactly true, unless some person blames the parent for raising the kid in whatever way. But if a child gets in trouble, it's still his/her problem that they have to learn from so they'll know what's best in the future. It's called "growing up".

True, but who cares? Again, it's worth it

15 They are annoying
16 They could become bullies
17 Dealing with boyfriend/girlfriend relationships

Teens can get easily caught up in relationships, but I believe that parents should leave the relationship business to the child's decisions because the child can learn more quickly about this kind of thing. Of course, the parent can give the child helpful info and stuff like that, but it's unlikely that the kid will listen, anyways. Now if there's abuse involved, then it's up to the parent to deal with that.

My mom can barely let my oldest sister get a boyfriend and she's 21.

18 They throw tantrums
19 They will not listen to you
20 They cry
21 You're responsible for their life

It's a whole life you're responsible for, not just until 18, their whole life, you have to take responsibility for another person for the rest of your life.

22 Your life, as you knew it, is never the same.

There are way less list items here than I thought. I probably have hundreds of reasons.

23 You can't travel or go on vacation

You can either, take your kids with you, hire a babysitter, or let the grandparents take care of them. I'm more of a "Let the grandparents take care of them" type of guy.

Yes you can! As a baby I went all over the world! To Europe, Hawaii, The Carribean, you name it!

My parents traveled to Atlantic City NJ when I was a baby and Lancaster, CA and Vegas when I was a toddler. They took me along with them.

24 They hit
25 You can't give them back
