So you'd take care of another man's offspring rather then have your own? How... unusually altruistic of you. Well, whatever floats your boat I suppose. It's definitely a great act of kindness.


No I wouldn't look after another persons kids , I don't want children , they annoy me. Im saying if you want kids it would be a good idea instead of people popping out more humans , take care of the ones that have no homes first. People having children with no intention of looking after them are sad.

I have my wife pop them out for me instead. Easier for me that way haha. :lol:

As for my kids, I have them with the intention of taking good care of them. By having them biologically they come with the added bonus of being genetically half me, so they get to carry on my genes. For my wife and I a definite must. It's not a welfare queen or deadbeat dad situation. That's not our style.

I wanted 4 kids, then I had 1 & that dream fizzled away real quick lol I don't think I'll have more, not sure ...
If you want good, intelligent kids with a good temperament you have to be with them always, they're like sponges, everything they see & hear they absorb. Thier life experiences shape them. You end up being the guard & the filter of their existance.

People who have kids & send them to school everyday, don't realise that kids spend most of their time away. They leave at 8am & get back by 4pm, then it's off to bed by 9pm. Who's raising your kids really?
