I guess it depends on what burden means to you. To me it means something I'm constantly thinking and worrying about. Sogno you must not have children, also your sister sounds like a bitch.

Children are like plants. You take the time, money, and energy to plant and grow them hoping that as long as you did everything right, you'll have a good harvest at the end of the season. Unfortunately, sometimes those plants you painstakingly took the effort of caring for get eatin by bugs or ruined by weather.

Point is, you won't know whether or not having children will be a burden on you until you have them. Though raising a kid alone, especially without a good career and a steady paycheck is just asking for trouble.

Children are the worst thing in the world. People are born evil, but 90% of them are never taught to be good any more. I would never have a kid. I would kill myself if I got someone pregnant. I hate seeing children in public, I hate seeing baby clothes in stores, I hate baby shoes, baby toys. Babies are pretty much the one thing in the world I would choose to eradicate from existence even if it meant no more people.

TL;DR
I think babies are the worst thing in existence.


Word. I wouldn't say BABIES, but people in general...yeah I hear you on that. I work with the public o I deal with kids coughing and sneezing without covering their mouths and breaking things all the time. Adults are just as bad.:/ I grew up with a dragon lady for a mum so I understand being treated like a burden all my life. Abuse? Maybe, but it taught me a lot about my place in this world. Harsh, but true.

when i lived with my sister and her husband she told me i was an "inconvenience" to them. same concept. i haven't forgotten that nor will i ever will, but from the perspective of an old woman i now realize she simply didn't understand nor was ready for children

she has two now and i highly doubt she'd ever call her child inconvenient. she wanted them, and now she will take care of them and nuture them. pretty simple.

^ yes.

honestly if you feel children are a burden, don't even bother with kids. you can be miserable by yourself. don't drag anyone else into it, especially a child

Burden? There is a responsibility to take care of our toys, tools, car, house, pets, and children, so that they will last a long time in good condition, but they are meant to be aspects of our life that bring joy and fulfillment. I can't believe anyone would not want these things because they're too lazy to proper take care of them. Do they even bathe every day?

"Meant to be aspects of joy and fulfillment" by who ? Having children is not a fairytale. Yes, your kids smile is a priceless site but it doesn't come without sacrifice. Giving unconditional love is not easy its a burden.
