Me too. Let the little brat run around with his Little Rascals pals and not come back til dinnertime.
This whole thing of constantly watching the kid so a child molester won't get them seems like a total drag and part of the reason I have yet to get caught up in the "parent trap".
I most likely will relent and have at least one but I dread the thought of Child Protective Services contacting me because the kid choses to engage in a unmonitored unorganized activity like 'following your nose'.
I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

The only reason I would have a kid would be simply to observe the potential in the child. I would watch them grow into huge ginormous monsters that blow me out of the water--but it probably wouldn't work out that way because our personalities clash or something like that. I'd be way too harsh with standards that my kid should live up to. Or at least I fear that might happen so I don't want to have kids at all. xD
Basically...part of me does want to have a kid and part of me doesn't. Is it a vicious circle like this for all other NT people or is it just me..? ⊙.◎
I have two and hope I will get around to having some more (by having I mean contributing DNA and heavy breathing - my wife does all the hard work until after they are born.) I would not change being a parent for anything. Though the time constraints can be tough and being a parent makes being a student much harder.
