    No it's fine not to like them.however it is immoral to go of your way to upset them or discriminate them.Unless they are bullying other kids then you must drop the No Santa bomb infront of them.My cousins 3yr old son is hilarious we went to a restraunt and we all ordered ribs and his sister got chicken nuggets but he asks for icecream and a calypso.He also tried to make me laugh by stuffing a banana down the side of the sofa.

    You don't have to like children to wish them a good start in life.

    I like kids. The ones aged between 12 and 15 on the bus tend to get a bit noisy and reckless but they pipe down if I tell them to stop, so I have no problems with them.
    They get worse when they're shouted at, so perhaps for people who don't like kids much in the first place it becomes a vicious circle.

    I think loud, hyperactive children can be funny but become quickly annoying. Fortunately my own son is pretty calm and reserved (he's quite a bookish type just like me) so I get on quite well with him most of the time.

    I don't know about 'immoral', but it is a little odd. Particularly because it could be argued that it goes against an evolutionary instinct or biological predisposition to like cute babies.

    All children have more dislikeable qualities than likeable ones, imo. Some can be cute, sure, but I wouldn't want to spend any significant period of time with them. Ick.

    I hate children in general. Especially around roads. Always gets me when I see one standing on the curb or something.

    Evolution doesn't exist. It's society pure and simple that says we must "love" children.

    I usually tell them to calm down before they reach the point of hurling each other into windows and breaking bones... They get very excitable.

    Well actually yes, it is, because a) I'd be the one getting in bother at school for not sorting them out, and b) I don't want the bus driver getting distracted and crashing the bus thanks.
    Plus, I do care about the well-being of others...

    But you don't know them, nor have to care for them. So why is it an issue?

    Your parent(s)/guardian(s) put up with your crap when you were a toddler. Now you might not want kids, but hostility towards them is unnecessary.
