I dont appreciate comments made on my kids, but at the same time, I dont think either one of those examples were of selfish people, just people who need to keep their judgements to themselves.

I dont believe having children has made me a better person, id still be who I am if I never had them. I also dont believe that I am bottom priority because I have kids, my priorities are still important and need to be equal to my kids priorities, im not less of a person because im a mother.

I dont think anyone whose chooses not to have kids is missing out, theyre living their lives the way they want, and thats fantastic and making what you want out of your life should be something thats celebrated, not pitied, criticised or put down.

I get really disappointed in parents when they pull the "theyre missing out" "they will never know real love" "their lives are not full" card. You cant make a judgment on the happiness or fullness of someones life just from comparing it to what you want out of yours.
