    I love kids! Most of the time they're very sweet and quite humorous, depending on the age. Once they get old enough they are able to actually maintain a realistic conversation with you. Keep in mind that most of the time temper tantrums aren't constantly happening, and that there are plenty of good moments in between the bad ones. I hope to be a father some day, and have kids of my own.

      I don't really like them or dislike them. I'm okay with them if they're well behaved and polite, but if not, I can't stand them.

      No, no, no, no, no, NO! Gods no!

      Kids are smart-asses, and they're stupider than I am. And they're annoying.

      I know it sounds biased, but having two little brothers who are total idiots doesn't help either.

      Hello everybody, I'm glad you missed me in this thread!

      So many people have answered the question on my behalf that I almost don't need to bother with this thread myself, however my hatred for children is so great that I felt the need to come and express it anyway!

      Oh, look, I can't be bothered lol. Everybody knows my hatred for children and the reasons why, I've gone on enough about it over my time here on PokeCommunity so I'll just give you the Cliff Notes version:

      1. They're grimy and annoying and take far too much patience to deal with
      2. I hate them more for what they do to the people who have them. They change them immediately from interesting people into mindsucking bores who think of nothing and nobody else but their children until the day they die.

        Depends. Are they well behaved? It's mostly on a case by case basis. If they can keep quiet and not bounce off the walls then yes, they can be tolerated. The screaming brats who orbit around the room in a frenzy of destruction are the ones that I utterly despise.

          I don't like babies or toddlers...egh -_- Once they reach school age, though, they can be okay if they're nice. Usually Pokemon gives me something to talk about and play with kids.

          But the more I think about having kids of my own, the more it turns me off to it :P T me, it's like a really cool idea, but a repulsive one at the same time. I don't want to be pregnant or give birth, and I already mentioned that I don't like babies or toddlers...the idea of diapers and potty training and vomit and runny noses and sticky hands is just uggghhh. I wish that my child would just appear and already be 5 years old! XD

          So yeah, young school-age kids can be fun to hang out with if they're nice and reasonably smart, especially if they like Pokemon since we have something in common. Kids of my own? Eh, maybe not, but who knows.

            If they're 1-2 yrs old I like 'em. The older they get, the more I hate them.

              No, and I don't want any.
              I like babies. But I am usually disappointed by children.

                I don't really have any affection one way or the other towards children as a concept. There are some kids whom I like a lot. There are others who I can't stand at all. Ones that I see in the street or on TV seem kinda bratty for the most part, but I'm probably just seeing them at a bad moment, so try not to judge all youth on the basis of a few bratty infants.

                I can't stand 98% of kids. I am not even joking. I just can't stand whiny, crying, spoilt, loud children that the parents do nothing about. ure, it is the parents fault, but they aren't the ones that are making the noise.

                  This for me, too. I love really well behaved kids and find them really cute. If they're loud and obnoxious, I just can't stand it and I want to smack their parents..

                    Kids are terrible, terrible beings from birth to around the age of 7, when (if you're EXTREMELY lucky) they might mellow out a little bit. The only exception is my little princess because she doesn't break things or scream (that often) and I could be around her all the time.

                    Case-by-Case Basis. I enjoy watching the kid that I have to pick up from school and watch until his dad picks him up. I like my cousins (for the most part). There a children that I like and enjoy being around. On the other hand, there are those spoiled, obnoxious kids that I can't stand to be around. Just like teenagers and basically human beings as a whole. Go figure that one out.

                    I like kids, but most kids don't like me back. I'm pretty good around the kids who can speak and are in the first or second grade, but when it comes to toddlers, stay away from me.
