What’s the point in having a baby? What makes the majority of people to endure this “unbearable” responsibility? Have you ever wondered?

Student:” A child is the sweetness of ones life!”

Socrates:” You call constant crying, waking up in midnight, putting your needs before your child and the awful smell of diaper sweetness?”

Student: “generation should go on&on!”

Socrates:” What’s the point in continuing this vicious circle when you deep down in your grave? Besides, isn’t 6 billion enough? ”

Student:” This comes from ones selfishness not to be able to put his/her need before his/her child; in that case your parents shouldn’t have thought of having you!”

Socrates:” I wasn’t invited to this world!”

Student:” To have a baby is a hobby.”

Socrates:” What a wasteful way to spend your time and money!”

Student:” Your child might “come in handy” when you are old!”

Socrates:” Look, who is talking about selfishness?”

Student:” A baby can give “meaning” to one’s life.”

Socrates:” I take my life’s “meaning” from other sources.”

The characters in this dialogue are imaginary. By the way, who can persuade Socrates into having a baby?

bringing a baby into the world needs building a future from welfare to education etc for that baby so responsibility is inevitable because a baby is not a toy.who (s)he thinks a baby is just sweetness for a couple's life probably neglects this important matter that this fantastic sweetness is at expense of either endless sacrificing or not thinking of him/herself. "sweetness" is a misleading word since after borning a baby this sweetness will fade away little by little and that time will be to late to make a decision.

You know--there is no way in the world I could convince anyone to have a child--and people who need convincing probably shouldn't.
But being a mother to mine has been both the most difficult and the most joyful experience in my life. (and I have had many difficult, and many joyful experiences).
Socrates, however, should not have babies! For one thing, I thought he was a guy, and thus not quite properly equipped??

Bringing a baby into this worl in all about selfishness. Even the sacrifices is because we need to sacrifice and we are unable to to do that for a person who is ours.
