Mother Declares Her Children Are
"the Biggest Regret of Her Life"

Yahoo.com, by Babble

Original Article

Posted By:crabam, 4/12/2013 11:05:57 AM

Let´s talk about the mom who regrets her children. Last week, the Daily Mail published a first-person story by Isabella Dutton, a 57 year old mother of two who declared her children to be "the biggest regret of her life." Since the Daily Mail is possibly the internet´s leading purveyor of "human interest in hating other humans" stories, it goes without saying that the article incited (and was intended to incite) a monstrous tsunami of scorn.

Comments:
I wonder how her children feel about this!

Raising children is hard? People today don´t know what hard is. The poorest people in this country have A/C, most have a car, a microwave, and a TV. Kids are in school a good part of the day from 5 on. Oh, so hard.

My grandmother raised 7 kids in a one bedroom apartment during the DEPRESSION, handwashing clothes in the basement. Don´t give me BS about what is hard. Me? I have two kids. In addition to a full time job, most of the housework has always fallen on me as my wife´s job has her traveling alot. Sure I complained about the workload. But you know what, the kids come first, always will. It´s called "man-ing up", whether you are a man or a woman.

I loved raising my kids, and being able to spend time with them. The rewards are overwhelming. I wanted a third child, but my wife´s body said no.

I find it irritating to hear women with no job, their kids gone most of the day, and complain about how hard it is. Grow up you selfish morons.

She says that she "simply lacked the wiring for motherhood" and I think there´s nothing wrong with that. If she felt that deep down, she couldn´t nurture a child then there´s no shame in not becoming a mother. The shame is that she didn´t tell her spouse this before they were married or before they became parents.

Kids can be a nightmare. I know mine were, but the majority of the time, in retrospect, they were a delight. The mid teen years were the worst by far.
It ain´t over till you see the finished product. The very personality traits that made them horrible teens made them great adults. (headstrong, distrust for authority, etc.) I am proud of the way my varmints turned out.
No, it wasn´t easy. Not much of life is.

Our freedom and liberty has turned into something our founders never intended; a culture of self-indugent, self-serving, perverts who have no regard for life, liberty, morals, family, authority, others, or anything else once held sacred.

I pity the children of today.

One of my sisters is just like this woman. She did not want children but her husband did. He was sure she would change her mind once she held that "bundle of joy". Didn´t happen. She always said she felt sorry for the kids and she should have been strong enough to have told her husband no. They eventually divorced and she gave him full custody. She has no relationship with her daughter and she is slowly developing a relationship with her son. I also have a friend who never had children and that still floors most people. She never wanted any and she never had any. She is very happy with her life. If women can choose to marry or not, have children outside of marriage then deciding not to have kids shouldn´t be a big deal. But because of the outside pressures too many women are probably having children who shouldn´t.

I don´t understand people like this. What would she be doing with her life if she didn´t have children? That is not to say that she couldn´t have contributed, but for many people, having and raising children gives their life more meaning. Being a good parent requires a bit of selflessness. It seems to me that she can´t deal with that.

Sorry for the double post, but having now read the Daily Mail article, I think this woman has Asperger´s syndrome or some other attachment disorder. Her disdain for having and raising children goes beyond just a lack of a mothering gene. It is more like a lack of an ability to form a human attachment. She claims she and her husband have a good relationship but you have to wonder. One does have to acknowledge her honesty.

If the U.S. government ends up careening off the "fiscal cliff," Republicans in Congress stand to shoulder most of the blame, according to a new poll released Tuesday. A majority of Americans said in a new, post-election poll that they do not expect President Barack Obama and members of Congress to reach an agreement to avoid the effects of the fiscal cliff, the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect at the beginning of the year.

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov.

Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner
