Biological imperative.
Glad I am immune, even though I'm getting to the age where people talk to me with a "You're going to regret it!" tone.

I love childer. I see more of some of those I teach than their own parents do.
I just enjoy them in a structured and disciplined environment and save my poor judgements for my thoroughly spoilt cat. Who will never trash a National Monument.

Much respect to the parents out there doing a good job, or even the best job they can. And good on you for not letting parental authority be chipped away, V.

I play it up, but, in all seriousness, there are well thought out, good, and valid reasons I don't have children. And it is no accident.

Responsibility for them is just one of the minor reasons.
