Not really.. I find them quite annoying and demanding. They also don't listen to you and are very noisy..

Most kids I know are like that, but there's some I actually enjoy having around with me, since they're fun and energetic, but at the same time they are polite, nice and not noisy.

Kids are ok when well behaved. When they scream and throw tantrums and beg for things they can be annoying, I think most kids are ok. If they are polite and pleasant to be around I like them.

I love kids. :) They are just so quirky and funny! I have always loved working with kids and helping them, which is why I'm majoring in elementary and special education. Sure kids can be tough to work with, but often times they don't know any better, and things can be worked on. After all, if you don't work on the tough things when they're young, they'll never learn it for the future. I'm also a bit of a kid myself, haha. I don't think I ever really truly grew up to be 20. 10 year old Syd is still hanging around. :)

Edit: Forgot to mention, even though I like kids, I am still unsure about having any myself. Cause you know you're like...stuck with them. lol And your own child is different from your cousins or your students. And the birthing process ugh.

Not until I get to know them. By default, I dislike children. In fact, if I see a mother scolding her child at a store, my first thought is "What did that child do to that poor mother?"

Eh. I'm more scared of kids, because I don't really know how to talk to them. D: I do like kids though, so at the same time, I don't mind...

Remember at one point we were all snot-nosed little devils throwing temper tantrums in stores. I love kids, Probably because being the oldest sibling & oldest of my cousins, I've grew up with one around constantly so I'm used to them by now.

Depends on the kid. If they're the spoiled rowdy kind or the sweet cute ones. Generally I can't stand kids, though. And the noisy ones really grate on me.

The rowdy, annoying, loud ones that beg for stuff really irritate me. The only kid (though she's considered a toddler) that I see often and like is my best friend's sister. She's really cute and likes to pretend to be my daughter (somehow I don't get dirty looks from strangers, having her loudly call me "mommy").

Still, it all depends on the child itself. If they're any of those things: Spoiled, noisy, likes to reach after things, & selfish overall, then I'd like nothing more than to strangle them with my bare hands, especially if either or both of their parents are bad ones overall.

If none of those apply to the kid, then I'm indifferent at worst.

Kids are the only kinds of people I can trust and tolerate. Once opinions start developing, get 'em out of my sight.

I'm kinda the opposite of this haha. I don't have any problem with kids, just until (if, really) they start to get on my nerves by doing things, especially on purpose. But typically I like kids. That doesn't mean I'm interact well with kids. It's kinda awkward tbh haha.

In general, I get along great with kids. I think I might become a teacher after college. Based on my experiences as a junior counselor at summer camp, most kids aren't spoiled or loud, but a significant minority are. You just gotta find the ones you really like.

It really depends on the child and how they are being raised. I absolutely cannot stand arrogant, greedy spoiled brats. On the other hand there are some insanely kind, generous, thoughtful and curious-about-the-world children that are often more enjoyable company than adults.

I don't hate most kids. (I even know a couple noisy ones that can still be very polite and even sickeningly sweet.) I just... don't know how to deal with them. I don't have any much-younger siblings, and just about all the kids of my parents' friends are bratty, rude, and otherwise just extremely annoying. One actually thinks hitting people in the face is acceptable behavior! In that person's house, even! (Obviously, yes, this has happened to me.)

I'm definitely a pet person, to say the least. Spending more than my entire life with pets (as in, my parents had a dog while I was in the womb) has made me a huge pet lover. I can happily say that there are no bad pets; just bad pet owners. The same doesn't apply for human children. (Especially the brat that hits people for fun, since I know his parents are decent and his little sister's much more tolerable.)

I have grown to despise children after working in retail. Their parents bring them to the checkout, they cry and then grab all the pamphlets in the holder and throw them everywhere, leaving me to clean it up. Not to mention they leave drool on stuff I have to scan :/

Without having to be attached to them for any reason, yes. The last time I volunteered at a daycare? Not so much.

I generally think kids, ages 4/5ish to maybe like 8 or 9 are cute or funny. There's a reason why a show called Kids Say the Darndest Things existed. You seriously can't write the kind of things children come up with, and if you're a whimsical sort, you eat that all up. They're also really imaginative, which is inspiring to say the least when you're trying to be an imaginative adult.

I also love the use of children in cartoons or animated movies. I understand why they aren't primarily used, but nothing will ever beat the pure authenticness of using a child's voice. It adds so much more to whatever you've got.

I like kids who are obedient but if I'm stuck babysitting an annoying needy kid, I'll kill him/her I'll go crazy xD

Kids are okay for the most part. They can get pretty obnoxious, but hey, it happens to everyone at some point in time. Just as long as they aren't screaming their lungs off.

I like kids I know far more than random ones. My nieces and nephews, for example, are all adorable. <3

Don't think I'll have any of my own. At least, not for a very long time. I like interacting with them, but I don't think I want one 24/7.

Everyone knows Andy's reaction lmao.

Kids are alright. Generally, they did my head in when I had to do work experience at a local primary school. Cousins etc, don't really bother me I suppose because I know them (and they're family), but stranger kids (especially loud and rough/physical ones) get on my nerves quite a bit.

The kids I see today, gosh. I mean, they're cute when they don't get into trouble and do not act like smart alecs, but that is rare to my eyes these days.

Generally, I only like kids if they're quiet and respectful. That said, I kind of like to see a kid having or forming opinions and thinking for itself. Children that throw temper tantrums all of the time (especially at parents that spoil them already) and act like complete idiots are not my cup of tea.

Andy? Where are you? We need your presence, Andy! Arbiter of Youth, Loather of Children, Detester of Kids! Where is your foul presence, your venomous words on the subject of kids? We need your abhorrence of kids in this thread!

It can be said that I am the exact opposite of Andy when it comes to kids. I tend to turn a blind eye to the problems raising a child brings, rather than critically tearing them apart and breathing fire onto the prospect of raising a child. I love kids! A lot! They're all innocent to me, except for the few specimens of Pure and Uncontrolled Evil I've come across in my life. I want kids, four little kids to run around and act like little brats and little angels simultaneously.

Geez, Andy. Leaving other people to pick up your slack.

Kids are, at best, a chore. They can't do anything for themselves. You have to feed them, carry them, clean them, entertain them, think for them, quiet them down, clothe them, keep them from hurting themselves, and generally give up your life to take care of them. If you're okay with that, then I suppose that's good for you.

At their worst they are demons with all the destructive powers of wild animals and all the protections of endangered species. You can't punish them or make them understand what they're doing so they keep on doing awful things like getting their nose fluids on your things, breaking your things, waking you up in the middle of the night, embarrassing you in public, and ugh I'm just annoyed thinking about all the things kids can do.

I've heard from a friend who has kids that there's this little switch in your head that someday might flick and you'll be all "I WANT BABIES!" Some people who never really felt they wanted kids, or never thought about it, are sudden overcome with the desire and in that sense I have to wonder if wanting kids is some kind of mental illness. If that's that case, I feel a little sad for people and a little worried I'll fall victim to this strange quirk of nature. I don't want to lose my sense of self, my independence, and my ability to speak without making baby noises in a funny voice.

. . .

Nah, actually some kids are okay in small doses if they're smart and all that. Still wouldn't want any of my own though since there's no guarantee they're turn out okay.

I'm okay with kids to an extent. I tend to uhh...stay away from them if they are sick or throwing loud tantrums. Because ahhh I can't seem to stand that at all. :(

Because 99% of the time when I get sick, it's from kid germs. *points at her two nieces*

Aside from that, I'm 50/50 towards them.
