Should I Have Kids?
Amy Cao Smith

I am almost 28 and couldn’t imagine having a child any time in the near future. I am basically a child. Single adulting is difficult enough; I have so many checks on my to-do list and boyfriend + baby is currently not one of them. Also, with inflation and stagnant wages, how in the hell are millennials affording babies these days? Are they all just exhausting their savings and/or receiving disability until they can return to work? And do they even consider what life will be like in 50 years, with global warming and lost job security due to technological advancements in robotics? Personally, I wouldn’t want to bring a kid into this mess. It’s cruel.
