    I wonder whether students think forward to having kids or not wanting them.
    I feel like i dont want kids because they will hold me back and stress me out - but i feel thats because im not ready for them.
    What do you think?

    Edit: I mean after university when you are settled

    To have kids we need to have sex. Some of us virgins on tsr might not have that option :indiff:

    i'm very against having kids. ive talked about it with my boyfriend after we settle down and get married. for me personally, being pregnant looks horrendous and even if i adopted, i think i'd make an awful mother. i couldn't do that to my children. so no, the idea of becoming a mother is actually upsetting to me

    EDIT: shouldve said that i have an abusive mother and many people say im like her and so i dont want to be abusive to my own children. i know that sounds weird but... im really afraid.

    What's a "sex"? I've not heard of such a phrase, can you get an A* in it?

    No, I don't, and I can't really see that changing, not for the foreseeable future anyway. I honestly don't like being around kids of any age, they stress me out with their loudness and unpredictability

    I don't want to go through pregnancy.
    Wouldn't mind adopting though

    Yes. I always thought I wanted kids quite young (as in after I've graduated and been working a couple of years), but I've realised recently that this isn't really the case any more. I think I'll be waiting a while

    Maybe like 23/24. But obviously it depends on my situation around then

    Edit: ideally, I'd like a baby at about 21 but that's just not practical
