Non-Monogamy Challenge Day 13

13. What does parenting mean to you?

Strictly, parenting is the raising of children by their parents, usually, but not limited to, two people.

I am currently in a place where I am not sure whether I ever want to be a biological parent – hence, barring medical emergency, I am keeping my reproductive organs, just tightly locked down.  Anyways, at this point in time, I don’t think it would be fair to try to bring kids into a world where TOWSNBN is president.

Do I want to parent?  Absolutely.  I don’t think I can be a full-time parent at this point in my life (can’t say much about the future), but I can be like grandparent: spoil them, maintain order, follow the general dictates of the parents, but in the end, go back to a house with peace and quiet.

I grew up with amazing parents – albeit super normal and a bit restrictive.  I would love to pass that on to kids.

If you like it, tell me why. If you don't, tell me why.
