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 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.

2 They can be brats

That's why the belt was invented

3 They cry a lot as babies and little kids

I hate it when babies or toddlers cry because you can't reason with them. They just care about themselves and cry and cry and cry until they get what they want.

I just hate the sound of crying.

Not to offend severe autistics in fact I'm an aspie but I don't do this but my sister who is 17 still cries 4 no apparent reason

4 They may hate you

Especially if they're teenagers.

Especially as shown in these Nickcoms...

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

5 You'll most likely clean up after them

Teach them to be more responsible and clean their own messes up themselves!

6 If they drop out of school, they'll have to live with you

If that happens, I'll just kick them out of my house.

I'll just get them a pc and world of warcraft to keep them busy.

7 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".

Just whip their stupid little asses

8 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.

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.

9 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.

10 It can be stressful

Get a babysitter..

The Contenders

11 They Might Make Poor Lists On TheTopTens
12 Overpopulation
13 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.

14 They could be a criminal or serial killer
