We have seen some reasons for having children in my previous post. However,there are many more reasons to have children. Please take a look at the following comments.
Nilanjana Bose====I personally can never regret the experience of parenthood. My child makes my life sparkle in unimaginable ways :)
caroll mckenna====Giving birth is really a way to perpetuate life. We are all connected and all need to feel love and belongings. One biological son and 2 stepsons ~ I enjoyed all of them. I am glad I gave birth to him( biological son) and sometimes wish I had more birth children ~ yet it was not 'in the cards'
rudraprayaga====Having children in a planned number is a Nature's law. If all choose not to have issues, one more species will become extinct. So I think people should have their own progeny with restricted numbers to carry out their family legacy.
SheshaChaturvedi ====growth and evolution is a truth of nature. We should definitely give births to children
Kristin ====As a woman who struggled to have children - and who was eventually given the gift of a baby through adoption - I can say that my life would not be the same without her. But it has always been my hope to be a Mother
Ygraine==== As a mother who miscarried 7 babies, and lost a daughter at the age of just two weeks old, I do take motherhood very seriously. I have just one surviving son now, and he is so precious to me.
Magyar -----I'm lucky to have my wife, my daughter, my son and my grand children
River-----Some people know for sure they do not want any and that's fair enough. For the rest of us, do we want them because we love children? do we want them so we can share the delights we knew ourselves as children?
Please click on the names of the above wonderful friends to visit their blogs and when you are there please do not forget to write comments. I am sure you will become good friends.
I am now summarizing the various points mentioned by my above friends and I wonder whether you will are in agreement with them.
Firstly, no couple will regret the experience of parent hood and children bring sparkle to parents lives in unimaginable ways.
Secondly, couple perpetuate life by having children and we all need love and belonging.
Thirdly, it is a natural law to have children. Man and woman are designed to have children and couples who don’t have children are going against this natural law.
Fourthly, if we don’t have children human beings will become extinct in less than hundred years like the dinosaurs.
Fifthly, children are needed to carry on the family legacy. What is the use of accumulating wealth and amassing property if we can’t leave it for progeny who will carry on our family name?
Sixthly, it is good to have a family with children and grandchildren and those who don’t have them are missing out the meaning of life.
Seventhly, couples who don’t have children don’t love children and are inadequate in themselves to rise up to the challenges of bringing up children.
Eighthly, it is better to adopt a child if a couple can’t have children or don’t want to have children.
Ninthly, couples who don’t have children are denying themselves the most precious thing in this life and have to put up a pretense to cover up the vacuum or emptiness in their lives.
I am sure you have your own thoughts on these points and I will be delighted if will share them generously with me.
