Are These “dumb” Reasons Not to Want Children?

Question by elledriver80: Are these “dumb” reasons not to want children?

I am in my late 20’s, college educated, all that good stuff. I have always said I didn’t want kids, I never been in a “real” relationship. Sometimes I want children, sometimes I don’t. The real reasons I say I don’t want kids are 3 reasons: because I’m scared of how the kid will turn out. I watch that show “intervention” and feel so sorry for those parents, they look so tired! What if my kid turned out to be a dead beat drug addict? The second reason is I never been around many kids so I don’t know if I would be a good parent and the last reason is (as bad as it sounds) I can’t see myself being responsible for someone for 18 years and beyond, it’s just too long. I told my female friend who is a single mom with 2 kids and she said they are “dumb” reasons not to have kids. She said when I find the right man thoughts will change but I don’t think so. I would like to know what parents think because I’m trying to figure things out for my life as I search for a serious partner. TY.
* I just look at people with crying babies, etc. and think “I could not handle that.” LOL.
