Having kids sucks. I’m not saying this to be mean, or because I’m a bitter person who hates children. I’m saying it because it’s true. And if you’re considering having kids, do yourself a favor and don’t do it.
You see, as a parent, your life is over. Don’t get me wrong—you’ll still be alive and kicking (I hope), but from now on all of your decisions will be dictated by your children—not only their needs but also their wants. Your life will never again be about what YOU want or need; it’ll always be about THEM.
If you have kids, the only way to get anything done is to take them everywhere with you for at least the first few years of their lives. This means that if you have a job (or even if you don’t), you’ll never have more than an hour or two alone during the day—and that’s if everything goes smoothly! If you’re lucky enough to have an employer who gives paid maternity leave and sick days, then congratulations: Your kid will likely survive and thrive in spite of your neglectful parenting skills!
Most Adults Hate Having Kids
Most adults hate having kids.
I’m not saying that most adults hate children, or that they don’t like spending time with them. That would be crazy! I’m saying that most adults really really hate having kids.
Why do I say this? Well, there are a few reasons.
First of all, most people assume that having children is the natural next step in life—that you’ll get married and then have kids. And then you’ll be happy forever and ever until the end of time. But no one tells you about all the work that goes into parenting; all the sleepless nights and dirty diapers and tantrums in public places and wiping spit up off your face when it lands on you while feeding your own child dinner at a restaurant because they’re too young to eat on their own yet but not old enough to sit quietly in their high chair while other people try to enjoy their meal in peace!
And second of all, if you’ve ever spent time with children before raising one yourself—whether it was as an auntie or uncle or neighbor or babysitter—you may have noticed something: They’re loud! They’re constantly whining about things.
Will You Still Be Able to Use THC Products?
If you’re a parent, there’s no doubt you’ve asked yourself this question at least once.
As legalization rolls on, more and more people are discovering the world of THC products like live resin carts and THC gummies. But if you have kids, will you still be able to use them? And if so, how do you make sure that your kids won’t find out?
We spoke with a few experts about their advice for parents who want to use THC products but are worried about what it could mean for their family. Here’s what they had to say:
Be Honest About Your Use With Your Kids (But Not Too Honest)
Dr. Susan Lark says that while she thinks it’s important for parents to be honest with their kids about their use of marijuana and other drugs, she also believes it’s important not to overshare. “Parents should always be honest with their children,” she explains, “but they should be careful not to go overboard with information.”
She advises parents who want to use cannabis edibles or other THC products while having kids at home: “It’s fine if they know what kind of drug you’re using,” she says, “but they don’t need details about how often or where it comes from.”
Will You Ever Have Peace And Quite Again If You Have Kids?
Will you ever have peace and quiet again if you have kids? No, probably not.
You may think that having kids will mean that your life is never the same again. And you’re right! Your life will never be the same again—but it’s going to be so much better.
Your kids will bring joy and happiness into your life that you didn’t know was even possible before. They’ll make you laugh when they do something silly (and cringe when they do something gross). They’ll teach you patience and persistence as they learn new skills, and they’ll make you feel loved like no one else can.
But even with all of that amazing stuff happening every day, there are still going to be times where being a parent gets challenging—sometimes really challenging. You might feel like all of these changes in your life are making it impossible for anyone to get any sleep or relax at all anymore. And then one day you’ll realize: this is what it means to be a parent! It’s not easy, but it’s totally worth it!
JK! Skip it. Being a parent is for the bees.
