Would it bother you if your parents told you that they wish they didn't have kids ( or you)?

It is....
You!

I had this conversation with my dad years ago, and his reply was a long and very telling silence before he stated "No." I didn't bother me at all, though if my siblings knew they might have taken it hard.
I dislike kids

    Not in my case. My father was blunt and to the point; he never used analogies to describe what he meant. Oh, well, no one said I get everything in life.

    I think it's the most important decision adults can make when they decide to have children. They better think it through so they'll never even think of saying such a horrendous thing to their children.

    True, but too many don't have a realistic idea of how much work goes into being a parent, and when reality hits them, it seems like buyer's remorse to me. It isn't the kid's fault of course.

    A lot of people would probably feel like you might. It can hurt, I agree.

    Well, I don't know about other folks to be honest, but my dad did mean it. I just expected to be hurt more and was surprised that I wasn't.

    sorry for that...but when my mother say so: "i wish i don't have kids' or something like that ..she doesn't say it except if she was angry..and you can't take the words of angry persons seriously.thats my opinion .

    I knew he meant it, but I took it with a grain of salt. He has the right to feel what he wants, and I respected that.

    ok..but i don't think that any father would regrat having kids ..maybe he meant it maybe you are right..but you know..if you become a mother yorself some day..you will make ecxuses for them...because you will be in their place..i am not a mother yet ...not married yet..but i can imagine my self angry at my kids and say so.

    You are very kind and sweet. I'm a bit too old to start a family since I am 44.
    I think with your kind heart and sharp mind, you'll be a wonderful mom when that day comes.

    I did by the time I was in my early 20s and began to see them as separate individuals and not just parents. When I learned to do that, it was easier to understand them on their level.

    It also depends on the context in which it was said and how it was said too... ;)

    I hear that. A harsh tone can really hurt a lot...
