What is up with these mothers leaving their kids with these loser guy's?
It's too bad people aren't born infertile and have to go through a procedure to become pregnant. That way thought would have to be given before having a child.

Don't blame the mother. Where was the dad?? I'm sick of mom's being blamed. They are not the only ones who made the child and not the only one responsible. Have you any clue how hard it is to raise a child on your own while the father sits on his lazy bum. You never know who you can trust these days; this stuff can happen at a licensed facility who cares for children.

1. As someone who works with abused children, I can tell you there are always signs and red flags. Abusers don't get that way overnight.

2. You create your own situation by having a child with a lazy bum.

3. Your job first and foremost is to protect your child, even if that means walking away from the men referenced in 1 and 2.

Vesectomy for the Guys and Tubal for the Girls. If they work and show responsibility, then reverse it so they can have a child. We know people like him are usually on public assistance of some kind of aide, son't work and keep having more kids they don't pay for. Look how many kids are waiting for adoption. It's Sad.

You may be correct in some of the situations. But not all of them.
.
1. Sometimes the bio dad of the child goes from being responsible to being a bum when he realizes that he is getting older. And he feels like he has been cheated out of having a good time when he was being a good dad. And then he walks out on his family and leaves the woman struggling to provide for the ones the now deadbeat dad walked out on. This can also happen to men whose wives have walked out on the family too. And he goes looking for a woman to help raise his offspring.
.
2. The woman was raped and decided to try and raise the kid. And ends up making a bad string of decisions of who she can trust.
.
3. Many of those who end up with abusers tend to come from where they were abused as kids. So they do not see the correlation between their parents and what they are going thru. Until something fatal happens.
.
http://voices.yahoo.com/can-abused-children-b... Children that are born into a family where one or more family members exhibits violence will pass this behavior onto their own children out of bad habits and example. After all this is all the child knows, so it is reasonable to expect that they will continue on with this behavior until someone intervenes and shows them that it is wrong.
.
https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/usermanuals... While the estimated number varies, child maltreatment literature commonly supports the finding that some maltreating parents or caregivers were victims of abuse and neglect themselves as children.23 One review of the relevant research suggested that about one-third of all individuals who were maltreated will subject their children to maltreatment.
.
This one applies to BOTH genders on why they walk out on what seemed to be a very happy marriage: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/why-m... He might physically go - to another woman whom he will eventually disappoint in the same way, because no honeymoon lasts forever. Or it might just be his emotional luggage he moves out. He might cheat. Or he might simply dream of cheating. But if a man wakes up in the middle of the night panicking that "It's going to be like this for the next 40 years", one way or another, he will surely go.
