  • Hard to tell. I believe that I will be a great parent and I have been told that I will make an awesome dad (even by my own parents) but the thing is that my parents were pretty awesome themselves, so it's hard to top them ;-). I think I might be better at one or two things... there is something where I would be a little more strict about and something where I would be a little more relaxed about but overall, I think I'll probably be on par with my own parents ;-). I really hope I can live up to everyone's expectations, including my own expectations towards myself ;-).

  • Nope, I don't. I don't think I'll be able to have kids. Kids annoy the piss out of me. I'd almost rather just date someone with their own teenager.

  • Tall mountain to climb but I'm going to try to be better because my kids are awesome and deserve it. But I had wonderful parents.

    • Mine abused shit out of me I left and ended up in orphanage in china got adopted out and turn out I have major abandon issues... And now I have two kids and I wan to run away cause it what I do. True love only exist a little bit Zzz

    • been in America since 99 and still go back and know exactly where they are... I left them when I was 6

  • Well my Father abandoned me when I was three and then was forced to see me occasionally by my Grandmother who used to be obsessed with playing "happy family's", so as long as I don't abandon my own children, I'll be better than him.

    My Mother whilst did amazing well to provide me as a single Mother was an abusive horrible woman who never supported me and never gave me the love that a Mother should and I hold her partially responsible for my development, though I accept the lion share of the blame for that.

    So I am not abusive verbally and I don't believe in smacking children, so I will no doubt make a much better parent than either of my parents who have by in large failed me.

  • Both my parents died before my 17th birthday but I was in awe of both.

    i was a father at 19, and have three kids. I did my best but you never think you did well enough with it ongoing.

    • Wait why did you have kids at 19? . sorry about your mom and dad

    • Show All
    • In my Age and upbringing it was but for you set up your career, find a guy, fall in love, then think about it

      i tell both my daughters the same.

    • Um that was kinda the plan after college I'm hoping to be a vet and live in Missouri. I have no interest in being pregnant before that

  • I think my parents did a good job. I'm sure I do things with a different flavor than my dad, but he did alright most of the time.

  • If i had kids now then no.
    I would struggle i don't feel i have the stability or the time and wouldn't do nearly as well. If i had them in 10-20 years then depending on where I am in life I might i don't know it can't be easy and i think they did a good job they made some mistakes but they put a lot of effort in and where vastly better than some parents i hear people talk about there are many parents who really shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.

  • I think I could be a better parent than my own, children don't really appeal to me as the idea of fucking someone elses whole life up from the beginning is a daunting risk but I've learned from the mistakes of my family. Considering my own father told me I was the biggest mistake he'd ever made there's much room for improvement.

  • It is my goal to be a better parent but if I can be half the parent my mom is, I just might be ok.

  • Definitely. It's almost hard to imagine anyone being worse at parenting than my parents. I certainly learn from my parents' mistakes and will be a better mother than mine ever was.
