Parents Are Confessing Their Regrets About Having Kids And They Shouldn’t Feel Ashamed Over It

Let’s start the discussion

Simply put, parenthood might not be for everyone. Just like taking care of pets, car ownership or simply being in a monogamous relationship. We’re all programmed differently and no matter how hard we might try to live up the society’s standards and expectations, sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Being a parent is the hardest job in the world and unless you’ve been in someone’s shoes, there’s no reason for to judge them on their best and worst days, too.

That’s why more and more parents are taking to their social media accounts to express their regrets about having children. I know it might sound awful at first, but if you’re already harboring these kinds of feelings, letting it all out is perhaps the best thing you can do.

Heck, there are even Facebook pages dedicated to people who openly admit to regretting their decision to have kids. To the young mom, the emotional wreck and the distant dad, I’m sure we can all relate.
