I was quite the opposite. Hated the idea of kids. Now, I kinda switched around for the past 1-2 years. I grew older, ideas changed, I have other needs.I used to think that I wanted kids, but I realize they would be a cause of great stress and the end of privacy between me and my partner. For those two reasons alone I do not wish to have children.
I do this too. We already picked a name, me and my SO are not married yet, nor are we going to have a child just yet. We already have some things planned out, but just the big picture.I'm already in love with my daughter, and she doesn't even exist (I'm not married and no kids on the way). Yeah, I think about my future kids sometimes. I wouldn't say it's a need, but I can't really imagine not having kids.
Watching videos of dads doing sweet things with their daughters makes me melt.
And think of all the stuff I can break and set on fire with my son (and not tell mom)!
Well, then it should be easy. Because you had terrible parents you should know what you missed. So you can offer your kids exactly what they require, plus the things you liked from what your parents gave you.I don't think it's a good idea to have children. I just don't think I'd be a good parent. Why? Because I probably wouldn't know how. My own parents sucked, to be honest.
But if that would happen - I'd try my darndest not to let my kids down.
