of 4+ kids?


Like, when you see/hear about a single mother of 5 struggling to put food on the table do you sympathize with them?


I don't. It's like shit, wear a condom. Kids ain't cheap

Nope.

In fact people should get tax credit for no kids or just 1 kid.

The people who have multiple kids fully aware that they're unable to support them (as opposed to a serious drop in fortunes) should not receive any social safety net

There should be a tax on having more than 2 kids regardless

...modes and scales are still useless.

wait, I misread. If you're talking single parent barely making ends meet, then yeah I'd be sympathetic.

If it's just in general, then both


also why isn't the question addressed to both fathers and mothers?

That's not really fair to the kids, tho.

Maybe she married a rich guy who said "let's make a big family and all be happy", then balked and ran the second he had to clean up baby poop.

Probably not though, so in all other cases - no.

One day you could happily have 4 kids and be supporting them well, the next day you could lose your job and get seriously ill, or have an accident leaving you unable to work. Have some empathy mate.

The poll is far too binary.

It entirely depends on why she has 4 kids. Was it a relationship that didn't happen to work out? Was she sleeping around? Was she the victim of multiple rapes?

And sure she could've had abortions, but the viability of that option depends on whether or not the mother can afford to have such treatment done. Not every single mum lives in a country with nationalised healthcare. Not to mention whether or not she supports the choice of abortion. I am pro-choice, but I'm not going to judge people as being stupid if they don't. That's up to them to decide.

There are too many factors involved for there to be a yes or no answer to this.

I seem to always agree with Xiaoxi, which prevents me from posting my opinion in these threads as it would be redundant to repeat the sentiment. This time isn't any different. I have 8 siblings and wholeheartedly agree with him.

naturally she would claim 5 dependents. Then possibly tax credits like child credit & EITC.


Also, it sucks for the kids, but foster home/adoption might be a better option if single and full-time.

My girlfriend wants to have my baby...I don't want a baby yet. She's more or less pushing me into it. I've been trying to avoid sex at all costs. We had a pregnancy scare some time ago, and she threatened to take the baby away from me and leave me aswell. We are geographically separated.

Uh...

Dump her...?

...Why are you two still in a relationship exactly? You want the relationship to progress at different rates, she's already outed herself as a pretty cold person considering she made threats like that, and the fact she's trying to push you into it is pretty gross when you consider how life altering a thing that is for both parents. Plus on top of that, you're not even in the same place.

On-topic, way too case-by-case. Some single parents are the victims of unfortunate circumstance. Some are stupid people who don't know how to use a condom. Far too grey to be making black-and-white statements with.
