At young ages, kids will hit or push another for no apparent reason. This is honesty?

I LOVE animals, but I don’t “get on” well with kids. I could gush over animals for hours, but put a baby in front of me, no matter how cute, and I’m handing it back as quickly as I can lol. I like to think I am a very warm person, I just don’t have that motherly feel.

Again, the attitude of kids=bad, adults=wholesome and more reasoned is false.

Why do some adults commit assaults or murders? Were Hitler and Stalin children when they sent people to gulags or put undesirables in concentration camps?

Adults are obviously physiologically different. And have more wisdom and reasoning ability. But morally, there is no real difference.

At least they're honest and don't talk **** like most adults...
lol... So people who think differently to you, you cannot handle or comprehend?

I don't like kids since most people are hypocrites about this supposed "love" of children.

I just think everyone just needs to stop demonizing everyone else and realize we're all human in the end.

Balloon Boy was honest. "We did it for the show."

Whatever happened to those guys?
