one day i would like to have some children. ONE day, like when i am 35 or something. i still feel too immature to be a mother. i am too selfish with my needs and wants right now. besides i need a lovely husband to have a child with.

well i also said at age 18 that by the time i am 25, i will be wealthy, married and will have 2 kids, one boy and one girl in that order. and will also have a nice house and a husband. I am now 28 and i see no ring on my finger, no home, no kids and sure as hell no wealth.

you would be surprised at what spending all your time with kids'll do to you.


i became a full time nanny when i was still 17 for 3 kids who were 14 months, 4, and 6 at the time.


just being with them all the time, i was so unselfish with them, and they really did help me see the world differently.


i complain about them a lot, but i really do love them with all my heart, and i know they love me and i'm a big part of their lives.


i'm not making myself promises...i don't want to say "when i'm 25 i want this and this and this" cos i don't want it influencing my life...i don't want to feel disappointed when i'm 25 if i'm not married, but i don't want to be 25 and feel like my time is coming short and i force myself to settle.

yes, this case is cracked. that's totally sick that she didn't stop, and it should be called "parental stupidity" not "child endangerment"

i understand shannon. i am an aunt to 5 boys and 3 girls. and i love them all to death and would cause some serious harm to anyone if they were ever to be hurt. i see them about every 3 days and would be willing and able to take care them in moments notice. they range from 1 yr to 13 years old.

seeing their smiles when i drive up, seeing them run towards me yelling out my name and greeting me with a warm hugs and kisses lets me know that i am loved. when i am not feeling well be it physically or whatever they are there to help me get through the pain and hurt. no matter what it is. anything from grabbing a pillow for me or just snuggling up with me on the couch to watch television. i love them to death and would have zero problem being a mother. but as stated before, i am not ready for my own right now. i have too many goals to settle within myself before i consider starting a family and one being finding a man to love and marry.

Well aside from what a stupid thing this woman did, I wonder what she thinks about her husband's view that he's responsible for everything she does.

Too bad they don't take time to explain what this really means.

Perhaps you could clarify what it really means then? I grew up in a community with this view and I happen to have my own opinion as to what it "really" means and no matter how people try to pretty it up it still sounds the same underneath. The most common reasoning I have heard is "if the husband truly loves his wife like Christ loves the church, then it's all good". To which I say, that's nice, but a benevolent dictatorship is STILL tyranny.

I have so many problems with all of this that I really don't know where to begin, so I guess I'll just focus on the baby. A woman actually killed her child doing this, she was breast feeding while driving, had to slam on the breaks and her poor child was crushed between mom and the steering wheel. Really, how hard is it to either make a bottle or wait until you're finished driving to feed your baby?

I've heard of a person getting a ticket because of one of those camera things, if it was a car registered to them and someone else committed the offense, but this is crazy. A man cannot face a charge of breastfeeding a baby while driving

The passage speaks to responsiblity, not control. That is responsiblity before a Holy God.
