Having children just to feel fulfilled is like having a trophy wife, well it's a trophy family to be exact. It's not good, because having a child for that purpose is useless, and could be extremely harmful. My advice: adopt/raise kids if you really do want kids to raise, but if you don't then just don't adopt any at all.
It is irritating when people fill up the boards with this kind of stuff.
Agreed. And most of these spam-topic posters don't realize that at five seedpoints per new topic, they would need a whopping 120 just to get to 600 points and a 10 GB reward. Meanwhile, most of them have accrued deficits much deeper than that.
To the topic, yes, overpopulation worries me, how much more can we inflict on this planet? And to bring it all around to this Parenthood board:
You can't prevent bullying for any particular detail. When a kid wants to make fun of another kid, the details are irrelevant. Bullies are sharks, they will find whatever detail makes someone unusual and relentlessly tease them for it.
What's important isn't making them immune to bullies, but making them the kind of person that people don't want to bully.
But how or what can we do this? I am not father already, but think about how a kid can be bullied because of the parents sexuality freaks me out. Specially because as I fight against a depression illness, I got totally worried if the kid (s) can, because of the bullying, got depressed too.
