Why would people have kids when their kids are going to be so stressed out when they get older?
The first 18 years of a person's life are great. Sure, there may be times of stress if they get a lot of homework or hard school projects and they may get bullied sometimes, but it's mostly very good because life is very easy. Their only responsibilities are to go to school, do homework, do whatever chores their parents want them to do, eat, and sleep.
After highschool graduation, life turns to absolute crap.
-If you go to college, you have to study extremely hard and do a ton of homework, which is super stressful. If you get your college degree, you will have to search hard to find a job. You might not even find a job in your field, even with a STEM degree.
-If you don't go to college, you will still have to search long and hard to get a decently priced job that allows you to pay your necessary expenses.
-When you move out, you are on your own. You have to pay your own bills and rent, pay for your own food, entertainment, healthcare, furniture, vehicles, clothes, and everything else, make your meal plans and grocery lists, do all of the household chores, run all of your errands, and figure out how to do everything you didn't learn when you were a kid!
To pay your expenses, you have to work 40+ hours a week at a job you might hate.You may end up struggling to afford to live on your own, even with a decently paying job.
So why do people choose to bring kids into this stressful world? You have 18 years of fun, and then live the rest of your life in stress and misery.
I’m not stressed out. Obviously you have a bad life. My life is excellent. University was a full ride, graduated with a bachelors degree in nursing with a specialty in emergency and pediatrics. Triage nurse switched to nurse educator. I love my job and i love my wife and son. Stess is just a natural part of life.
So basically, you're unhappy and instead of taking responsibility you wanna blame your parents?
I hated my teen years, my 20s were a lot better. I had more responsibilities, but I was also very independent so I liked being in control of my life, my choices, and who I interacted with. I kind of miss that flexibility and freedom, honestly.
And why didn't you learn how to cook, clean the house, manage money, and run errands while you were still a teen? Your parents should have taught you all of that so you could be a self-sufficient young adult. If they didn't, they either failed you or you were very spoiled.
The worlds a jack up - A sweet disguise.
John 17:16-26 King James Version (KJV)
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
For as long as Adam and Eve exist - So does death.
