Breeders deal with their kids during Coronavirus (Breeder Corona Regret)

One of my favourite things about this whole shitty situation is the snappy things I'm seeing on the various childfree Facebook pages I follow, with tweets from people saying things like:

Quote

Dear everyone who bugged us for the last 10 years to "have kids, when are you gonna have kids? you should have kids!", Where are you at now

And other tweets from breeders saying shit like "You all quarantining without kids don't know how good you have it" only to receive replies on masse that yes, we do know, we 100% know and it's part of the reason why we don't have them etc.

GOD YES.

Note: I don't wish COVID on anyone, nor do I think anyone "deserves" it. I also realize that my husband and I are very lucky that we have regular income coming in...hell, he could do nearly all of his job from home if it comes to that (but it's easier at work, as he does not have a two-monitor computer at home).

But I am glad during this whole unholy mess that I am 1. introverted, 2. easily entertained, 3. most of all...CHILDFREE. Even good parents are gonna go nuts during this time. The shitty parents were flipping out day one. I'm laughing my ass off at parents who're coming apart at the seams about having to spend time with their lil carbon-expellers. Yes, you have to look after them. No, you can't send them on playdates, that defeats the point of social distancing. Deal with it.

Honestly, I am okay staying home, cooking, playing video games, texting/calling friends, surfing the net, watching movies, spending some time with my spouse, bingeing on some TV, and so on. Occasionally I've gone for (solitary, socially-distanced) walks to avoid spending too much time on the couch. It's not a vacation by any means, but it's not the horrific mess that childed people are dealing with.

I'm with you on cleaning, yurble. My parents expected us kids to pitch in for cleaning and taught us how to keep things sanitary. Did we enjoy it and do it voluntarily as kids? No, because we were immature and wanted to take the path of least resistance. I learned in my early 20s that having a clean place led to having a better life because I could find things and didn't have gross mess draining at me.
Another introvert here and I honestly have not experienced any significant/problematic changes in my usual schedule. I'm perfectly content staying home and watching stuff, reading, playing games or sleeping and I still go to the store 1-2 times a week for a handful of groceries. I still talk to people and spend time with some of them. I'd say the biggest change is I can't go to the thrift store like I tend to do on weekends because of course that's not considered an essential business.

If it was just us alone we would have been sleeping in, going to bed late, missing meals, eating junk, skipping showers, and binge watching tv.

Of course, the good old "people without kids are immature teenagers" bingo. Why yes, if one doesn't have kids, then clearly that means they're just living like college kids, eating pizza, staying up until 6am and getting up at 3pm and festering in our own filth while marathon watching Netflix. Funny how none of us have jobs or errands or general shit to do because only breeders have busy lives! eye rolling smiley

You can tell that's the life they would love to live, but they can't because of the brats they chose to create, so they're going to flip it around and act high and mighty about how they "choose" to get up, bathe and cook meals. Yeah, nice try.
One day. These Happy Parunts can't tolerate ONE DAY together with their own offspring. How do you think teachers feel having to wrangle classes of 20, 30 or more of them every day for meager pay?

It's obnoxious how many "ideas for enrichment" & other things I'm seeing on my social media feeds that are meant for parents who've been stuck with their own kids for all of a few days. Like, is it really this hard to parent your own kids? Do people really not know how to just be with themselves & entertain themselves? Folks who gripe about their jobs also seem to be going bonkers "stuck inside". Do people love their menial jobs THAT MUCH? I'm having no issue whatsoever with the quarantine...then again, I have chronic illness & am accustomed to making due with my own inner resources. AKA not being spoonfed uplifting messages & entertainment tips every 5 minutes.

Blech. It's funny seeing them like this but also extreeeemely grating.

Some of the commenters were saying that parunts will now have more respect for the people who look after their brats, plus teachers. Others said "yeah, riiiiiiiiiight"
All I can do is laugh. I think this will last 18 months if not longer.

I think it could too, because it has a long, asymptomatic incubation time. People don't realize they're infected, and they infect others.

I am fine with being at home. I may get a little kookoo after several months of this, but I'll suck it up and stay home so the health care facilities don't collapse under an explosive influx of patients.

Think being stuck with kids will make those parents think twice before having any more? Probably not. But I can dream.

I don't think the USA will make it through. We are DOA. Trump is destroying any chance of recovery or virus die off.

Hopefully breeders and wanna-breeders are attempting to have safe sex because I foresee this shit still happening in 10 months and there are going to be loads of pregnant Moos flooding hospitals to sluice and getting zero attention because every ounce of effort is being devoted to people with the coronavirus and they'll piss and moan about having to give birth in the waiting room.

I'm sure the country will recover eventually, but it's going to take forever because no one is being forced to stay home, craploads of people can't get tested, and symptoms seem so all over the place that people will go about their business without even knowing they're sick. Our response is akin to gentle discipline. "Stay home now, but only if you feel like it, sweetie!" The only downside is the natural consequences of people and their dumbassery doesn't only affect them.

The breakingmom sub still brings me such joy seeing these idiots suffer having to stay home with their useless brats and husbands. Love the ones who complain about their men overreacting about potentially being sick because men are allegedly such big fat babies when they come down with anything, but how the Moos are such martyrs and how they're sick with self-diagnosed coronavirus, but they'll soldier on and continue cleaning and minding their brats because that's what mommies do. Don't break your arms stroking yourselves there, Moos. bemused eye roll
Cambion, I wish we could see breakingdad too but that is private and you have to ask to join. I think they filter against people who also are joined to the childfree subs as you cannot post on them. I don't think childfree filters these whiny placenta brains

update!!: they do filter against people from r/childfree because they were harrassing the moos and disparaging them.

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove
they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.
