Oh if only a large part of the UK thought that way, they could slash their benefits bill in half!
I never could understand why in an over crowded island they actually pay people to breed.

but it seems in Spain as soon as they find they can't feed them they drive into the campo and dump their dogs and cats, or in our village push them out at the roundabout
don't seem to notice any difference as it isnt the cat or dog thats eating them out of house and home, many of them are already on starvation diets

So what happens if you have children when you are relatively well off and then you lose your job or your marriage breaks up? You cull the children?

you do it to the dogs and cats why not the children, would make you more conscious of your responsibilities in life
of course you may wish to go back to a previous era where you sell your children off to a slaver

would make people more careful about going round popping off kids to cement a relationship or to just be having sex with someone without any thoughts for consequences - One primary reason for Britains skyhigh benefits costs is because there is a safety net which isnt there in other countries, why do you think they are so eager to catch the first boat to the UK !!

All Actions Result in a Consequence

Dom & Decon I'm in total agreement

Poca, you make a greater effort for the sake of the children, and if that's not on your agenda then don't have any in the first place.

Perhaps there should be good benefits for 2 children and nil for anymore.

My niece was promoted last year which put her in the 40% tax bracket and she loses her family allowance. Not much incentive for more responsibilty is there

not when there may be a couple living next door who are able to "engineer" their salaries and pay themselves £39,000 each and take the rest in dividends.

OK no need to shout.

Of course you do. And sometimes that involves moving to another country with better work opportunities and a better healthcare or welfare system.

And no, I never had any ... not because I wouldn't do my best for them, of course I would. I'd even make them home-made burgers . I've just never been in a secure enough situation, and it wouldn't be fair on them.

Arrhh

Pocaloca, there is no evidence that rich children are any happier than poor children, in fact the opposite is often true

If you still want them and can, then I say go for it!

Honestly, did you really expect a sensible answer to you question about culling children?

A bit dramatic innit? I have nothing to do with your breeding plans.
