Will you wait to be wealthy before you can have a child?

Posted on February 16, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

A child is a gift and blessings from God. If you are pregnant and give birth to a baby ,you are blessed.

Some people would plan to have babies only when they are financially capable.They want their child to have the best things in life.

They want to wait for all the conditions to be right before they want to have a baby but fate does not give them this luxury .

By the time ,they feel well off to have a baby ,they would have crossed their expired dates and they would use their wealth to get a baby by the IVF method or use surrogate dad and mom to achieve their aims.

In the process , how much must one accumulate enough to have a child? Is it really for the child or is it for the parents enjoyments.

Does this mean that those who are poor should not have children?

Having children is not about wealth or giving up the good life.

It is about the sacrifice and joy in raising them. A poor mother may work hard and suffer lower standards of living to support her child but she finds joy and fulfillment being a woman and a mother.

What about those people who are rich but are too preoccupied with their careers and have no time for their child?

Will having a child makes them better parents because of their wealth and materialistic wants ?

What good is materialistic things when you cannot give a mother’s love and spend time with your children?

Children do not need all those materialistic things but only those basic needs like love, care and concerns.

The human factor is more important than all those inhuman and materialistic needs.

If you feel it is the right time , by all means go ahead because it is your life.

It is just a matter of arranging your priorities in life.
Different people have different priorities.

One needs not wait till he/she is wealthy to have children, but I do think that a family should at least have sufficient financial support before having a baby. It is not “cheap” to bear a child as a newborn needs clothes, a warm shelter, food (milk powder) and education later on. Family planning is relatively important to ensure that a newborn has all he needs. If a family can’t provide to its own basic needs, what’s more talking about bearing and bringing up a new life?

Hi Kar Mun,

Thanks for your input. I do agree with your points but poverty should not be a barrier to having babies.

We live in the ‘kiasu’ world and we have high expectations of what we want for our children.

In the olden days , life was better, people just had babies without worrying about the cost of feeding them. Contrast this to my generation where 7 to 12 children were common.

Today , with escalating costs, many couples are fearful to have children or can only afford one child.
