No. No, no, no, and a thousand more times, no.

EVERYBODY gets tired. It’s a function of the human body.

Many people have jobs that require them to work long hours during the week. I personally know someone who works so much, he only has time to eat once a day as a result and used to stay awake for days at a time (he probably still does and doesn’t tell me because I worry).

And don’t forget, some of these jobs are also dangerous. I’m pretty sure a paramedic, for example, has a bigger responsibility than a parent who needs to cook dinner and put their kids to bed at the end of the day. And they don’t have time to whine about it either.

beingchildfree:

Local news actually thought a restaurant’s policies against younger noisy/disruptive children was newsworthy. They interviewed a lot of parents who were disappointed and very offended that they’re excluded from a fine dining space because their children don’t have manners down yet [if they’re even being taught manners]. Golly gee whiz, I so do wonder what it’s like to feel excluded and insulted just for a personal lifestyle decision!

What if people talked to parents the way parents talk to the childfree?

"Are you sure? You might regret having your kids." "Wow. I wish I could get so much time off for just popping out a kid." "Don’t you ever just wish you never had them? I mean, you might change your mind." "You will change your mind." "What if the man of your dreams doesn’t want them?" "What will you do when you’re old and they don’t take care of you?" "It’s not the same as being an aunt/uncle/pet parent."
