Glad You Asked host Cleo Abram is pretty sure she wants kids, but doesn’t feel like she has enough information to truly understand the impact of that decision. She’s not alone - even though the majority of American women do decide to have children, the number of births in the United States has been creeping downward, and women are having kids later and later in life. But while no one but you can answer if you want to have kids, join Cleo as she gathers more data and perspective on what it means to be a parent.

Lol, there are plenty of people who choose to have kids because it will ‘make them happy’, or ‘pass on their lineage’, or ‘have a little version of me’. If you choose not to have kids because you know it would just make you and your children miserable, that’s one of the most mature, selfless decisions you could make.

Don't do it. It's decimating the environment. Please, for the sake of the entire future of humanity, don't have kids. Just let the very youngest generation born in the last couple of years have them. That should knock down the population level enough to make a dent in climate change. Free abortions and voluntary free vasectomies and sterilization should be strongly encouraged. Heavy investment in rejuvenation biotech to increase youthspan indefinitely could drastically reduce the pressure, urge and rush to have kids and help to save the environment as well. Women could wait 250 years or more before having kids. Talk about experienced people having a better generation.

I think this brings up a lot of good points, I knew I wanted to be a father and my partner did too. But as we edged towards our thirties, we had to figure out when parenthood was going to start - even though it meant overturning our life. To me, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made because my kids bring me so much joy. But I do think that it comes with the understanding that there needs to be a balance which is hard to nail down in our current environment as we have been in isolation for such a long time. But I think it's healthy like any relationship, for there to be separation between the time you spend with your kids and the time you spend out with your kids.

I'm really curious about the percentage of a woman's earnings a woman spends on childcare in the UK. It's so high! It also really confuses me, most of healthcare here is covered by the NHS. I understand that the NHS uses government taxes but you obviously can't say that all of that taxed money is what women spend of healthcare for children though I doubt that that's what they did in the video anyway. I think I'm just missing something obvious here. I dont honestly expect people to see this comment but if you do and you know anything about this it would be appreciated if you could inform me.

Not everything is about being happy, it is about having meaning in your life. People regret not having kids because they realized they are not needed in the world. You will realize that having kid is the greatest thing when you see how your kids needed you to be there for them. Having kids is stressful and not fun but it will brings you joy knowing that you are their favorite person. Not everything is about happiness, it's about having meaning in your life. Make yourself needed by someone. Also, don't fight with your partner, just work as a team, remind yourself that it would be easier to raise your child when you have a partner working with you. If you want to have kid with a partner, both you and your partner must have a certain role. Both partner should do the same amount as the other. About the wage gape... this makes no sense, why are you say it is unfair that you are making less money because you are caring for a child, it your choice to make less money... also didn't all the women want a man that makes more money? Why are the woman complaining about men earning more than women?

Basically what this piece is teaching woman to do is sleep around, doing way more damage to their bodies than having children would ever do then grow old, regret not having a family to spend time with and look after, ultimately dying alone,..eaten by cats. More feminist nonsense.
materializze 13 dagar sedan
Basically this teaches everyone, not just women, to think critically and make your own decisions about this based on actual research. But this decision affects women more because women have more to lose and more to sacrifice if they choose to have children. Women are sick and tired of society’s ‘rose-colored glasses only’ approach to discussing possible parenthood. There’s both sides to everything, and the cons need to be talked about too, because they’re very real. You seem to think that it’s a bad thing that women should be able to choose whether to give birth or not.

If she doesn’t want to have kids, she doesn’t want to have kids. I don’t blame her at all, because in Korea, it’s incredibly expensive to raise children, and Korea is also a very stressful and competitive society for children to grow up. Women in Korea are also expected to sacrifice pretty much everything to raise their children and take on most of the burden when it comes to childcare.

Something no one wants to admit is that having kids is always a selfish act. Your reason for having kids is always to please or fullfil your own personal desires. Ironically, once you have kids the only way you can be a good parent is by being totally devoted to your children and putting your needs second.

v0rt3x 22 dagar sedan
@materializze not my question im just trying to find out what was the point of this statistic of comparing the mothers and fathers earnings. Why only compare earnings without comparing expenditure? Obviously one parents earnings will take a big hit when they have children. Why make a whole segment with that ridiculous rock climbing part to prove what most of us already know (which is that children require a lot of attention, care, and money, and therefore earnings are going to be less, either of one parent or both). A more useful statistic would be: What percentage of mothers are forced to leave their jobs when they didnt want to but felt they had no option? I do disagree that any one parent should be forced to quit their job to care for the baby. IMO it should be a consensual decision between both parents.

There´s some important data missing here... for example the life expectancy of parents versus childless individuals. There´s a lot of studies that prove that parents (even adoptive parents) with 1 to 3 kids live between 2 to 5 years longer than those without kids. There´s no consensus on to why, but some reasons could be that childless people usually have less healthier lives, depression, etc

So many holes to pick here but what's apparent is that women propagate mass hysteria and victimhood. I'm just wondering why in a marriage/LTR with a child(ren) there seems to be a competition with the man. The 'hit' on the woman's career doesn't only affect the woman, or do we choose to deliberately ignore the fact that the man now takes the majority of financial responsibility also impacting his earnings? "On an average day woman take on more than double the childcare responsibilities than men." Well duh she's at home most of the time💁🏾‍♂️. Why are we not painting the full picture to say men are almost doubling their financial obligations when the woman takes time out of work. SMDH. Like I said there's so many holes to poke here but one thing I'd like to say is women you are not victims, there are consequences for the decisions you make that should be born by the family. Oh and government doesn't have any money it's taxpayers money

Its so rude to call people who choose to have children selfish. Yeah, you can choose to focus instead on the climate crisis which is great (Although 50 years wont have nearly the volume in effect that you think) but having kids is a very personal desition and for a parent it matters only what they want. Also its these kids that may be the generation that finnaly slows the climate crisis, there are alot of factors at play with global warming and there may be more hope than you think. I think it's great that you're taking the climate crisis so seriously but dont call people selfish if they personally want kids. A better thing to advocate for is to bring development into developing countries which would encourage people in those nations to have less kids in the first place without just calling them selfish.

As an Asian, i cannot relate to this topic. At all. And i'm actually amazed that so many of the commenter here have bad experience with their parents. I have an excellent caring relationship with my parent, the kind of relationship that i'm looking forward to enjoy with my 4 months old baby. What i can tell from this experience is that, a lot of these fears are preconceived notion stemming from you not believing that you can be a good parent. But once you get past that part, parenting can actually make you happy. It's completely up to you to create a happy family.

Kids are not for getting happy, kids are to carry on our civilzation, but i guess feminists rather not keep our civilization going, they rather have islam or chinese carry on their civilization. Feminism is a suicidal and selfish ideology, it only works because most people are not feminist and we have build such a comfy society by exploiting poorer countries that we don't need to the work anymore. So women can now be editors and other useless non jobs like producing such videos that do nothing for humanities progress, except consume.

@tms People having the right to choose whether to have children and become parents or not is a bad ‘ideology’? So then your ‘ideology’ is that everyone should be forced to reproduce, women shouldn’t be working, and anyone not of European decent is less-than?

I am definitely looking for a wife that I want to live my life with, that is okay with not having any kids. It’s not like I don’t want kids, I want the option of not having children. Sadly this often isn’t an accepted view^^
