If you’re anything like me, you often get caught up on Instagram feeds full of chubby armed, toothless, beautiful babies…turn back it’s a TRAP!
Okay, so they’re cute when they’re not yours, but as a teacher, consistently seeing children who are dying for:
- to feel good
I literally don’t suggest having kids. If you are not ready to give all of yourself to make someone happy, healthy, and strong, DON’T. There are a lot of ways to NOT get pregnant/get anyone else pregnant. Don’t create a person and not actually treat them right.
I wasn’t raised by my parents because when I was born, they were not ready to raise me. I mean I turned out pretty great and all, but I wouldn’t subject a person to my upbringing. My grandma is easily one of the most amazing people ever created, but she had already raised 2 generations when I was born. (Yes she’s my GREAT-grandma). I wouldn’t have subjected her to raising a child at 60 years old either!
Okay, I’m kidding, KINDA. Kids can be great, if you actually WANT them. All the good vibes to any parents reading this, who know they go hard for their babies. (Us teachers appreciate you).
