God, no! I hate kids!

I’ve been viewing the PostSecret website for many years now. There’s usually at least one that either “speaks to me,” or is super compelling, or just makes me think about something in a different or interesting way.

The one in this week’s collection that speaks to me, or that I can most relate to, was:

When my students' parents ask me if I have any children of my own, I have to remind myself not to blurt out "God no! I hate kids!"

If you’re not familiar with PostSecret, it’s “an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren in 2005, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Selected secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website every Sunday, or used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits.”
