    I like being with kids; I often compare my personality to that of a kid, and that makes it easier for me to connect with them.

    My opinion varies, but I don't do well around young children. That's really only if I don't know or care about them, though. A family friend has two young daughters, and I do fine around them.
    Although it's helpful that children won't lie to you in an attempt to seem kind, like other humans do.

    I can tolerate some kids, but I want to throw others.

    I learned/realized today that I can tolerate children better than I had thought. I seem to be less socially awkward around kids, if anything.
    I can't think of a good signature.

      Eeh, I like kids, but they really can be revolting/obnoxious, if their parents have failed at their job.

        I don't like babies. They're a pain in the neck. Crying irritates my ears. As for children, it depends on how old. If they're fresh out of infancy, I will avoid them. I take care around kids from 5-10, and by the time they're 11, they usually aren't total brats.

          Honestly, it depends on what the child is like.. and what situation it is in. If it is crying because it wants attention and disrupting everything.. then I'm definitely not going to fawn over it.

          I'm pretty much a kid myself, but I don't really mind younger kids? As long as their intentions aren't stabbing me in the eye with a colour pencil, or smothering glue all over my hand, or to be a general nuisance, then I'm alright around them. They're quite adorable until you take away something from them and then they start bawling- worst sound I've ever heard. I honestly don't really like babies- they're kinda cute but all the crying they do in shopping centres, makes me feel sorry for the parents and its just so irritating. I can't stand babies to be honest. :p

            I'm pretty iffy on them. They can be the most hellspawn-like monsters to ever torture your ears/brain, or they can be the most calm, gentle, sweet and innocent creatures to grace you with their presence.

            Do they have to be Human babies? Because honestly most other babies are much more tolerable.

                Heh.. This made me laugh..

                I have mixed feelings, I do like most kids, I like to play with them and still probably get into the play mood more than they do sometimes cause well.. I'm just a big kid! :3

                But then... Oh boy.. There are just some that are just sooo... Bad mannered, loud, rude, rat kids that you just want to yell 'Shut up!' and hold back punches cause 'I can't go to jail again!'.. Like, on my bus, it is just full with little annoying, rude brats that are constantly shouting, hitting, swearing, pushing and insult everyone. I've heard them say some pretty hurtful things, and it's disgusting hearing kids say words I've never even heard until I was like.. 14... And they are like 5 or 6..

                Babies can be kinda annoying too though.. With the crying and drooling and crapping and sucking on toys.. But can be cute too though haha.

                Love Asian and black babies, haha. They are just that much cuter. I haven't had any experience, but being as hotheaded as I am, the screaming would most likely drive me mental.

                With kids, I can't stand the ones who run around screaming their heads off and touch everything of yours they can find. I guess I don't like anyone touching my things, though. Once again, I find Asian and black children more adorable!

                  I didn't use to like kids.

                  Then my older sister got pregnant and gave me my first niece (And probably my only one). She's a little bundle of joy and my family really needed a new family member, if that makes sense? Babies change the dynamic so much. It's insane to watch my sister actually be a mother, rather than an older sister. I got to visit my niece the night she was born, then hold her the next day. I'm already being as good as an Uncle as I can be. She's growing a lot, it's crazy. I'm just trying to get all the visiting time in before I move across country, because I won't really see her for like 4 years (but at least by that time I can take her out to the movies or something)

                    Mostly I think kids are annoying. The littler they are the better. I hate it when someone who's not mature tries to make a smart comeback, because they're not as smart as me so stop trying to backtalk you little ****!. As you can tell, I really hate annoying little 3-7 year olds, hell, maybe even 8-10 year olds. I just hate little kids who think they're so smart and they can backtalk me.

                    But if they're sweet little kids then I love them!

                    The screamers are annoying, but often babies and toddlers are fun! I attended a wedding a couple days ago and during the ceremony there was a small 4/5 year old boy constantly running up and down the aisle, stacking up cushions where the bride was about to walk and generally being hilarious (if not a tad annoying!). When it came time for the "I do"'s, the small boy took this as his chance to steal the bride by shouting "YES I DO!!!!!" at the top of his voice, so for this reason alone I love kids. I feel bad for the bride and groom but hey, it's meant to be a celebration right? :D

                    Kids are great and really fun to be around! They are so cute and always a joy. Yes crying is annoying, but I look past that.

                      For some reason, I really dislike toddlers and babies D: Most of the time, toddlers get on my last nerve, and babies do all the time. I like some young kids, but only if they're really quiet and sweet.
                      I'll never be able to have a kid of my own, childbirth sounds extremely unappealing to me and so does taking care of an infant I may adopt at some point, though no kids younger than around 2 or 3.

                        I have mixed opinions on children.

                        On the pro side, they are really playful and fun to get around, even if you are older than them. I personally do enjoy the sound of laughter and screams of joy, no matter where I go.

                        On the con side, some other times, obviously they can get annoying if their voices go on for far too long. And yes, as a kid, I was one of them when I make noises when I can't get what I want. The kids will beg for anything to their parents.
