    If one wants to have kids, do have it for the right reasons and under the correct conditions. I dun recommend depending on handouts from the govt is a right mindset.

    Likewise for many other stuff, start doing/thinking out of the box instead of looking at govt handouts etc. China is growing very fast and its people catching up even faster. In 10-20 years or even sooner, Singaporeans will lose our edge in being "multi-lingual" and having good management, and many save for the best will find it even TOUGHER to survive then.

    It is indeed a lifetime commitment to have kids. Talking about commitments, we must be sure to provide the children with enough. What is enough? Having enough means to be able to give the child a proper shelter, clothes and food to eat with these being the basic neccessity. Next comes the children education and development costs. While the earlier can be scrimped on, the later is a MUST.

    To have a child is not merely adding to the number of Singaporeans. Rather, through proper guidance and education so that they do not become a nuisance to the society. That aside, a huge amount of money is needed for such. I do not say that we require handouts or to wait for the government to raise our kids. But this money will defintely plays apart to ensure that the child is being developed to maximize their potential.

    If all this cannot even be done in the first place, whats the point of having kids even though we have the right mindset. Many couples these days foresee this as a problem and thus, delay their plans to have kids. Their thinking is due to the education brought to them. On the other hand, many still wants to enjoy and led the kind of lifestyle they are currently having.

    If so, think again. Has our education failed us?

    if u bring them into this world and u cannot feed them.... u actually gave them suffering. I saw some teens doing strange stuff to earn extra money for their daily needs.. becos their family are poor and broken.

    Hey Guys. Please Remember That The Babies You Make Are For Yourself. Dont Make Them For The Sake Of Government Or Someone Else Out There. They Can Only Support You For A While, Not Lifelong Ok. Please Think Over Again, Before You Do Something. Dont Bring Somebody To This Wicked World Thinking Of Some Few Thousand Dollars, And Later You Spend Them, Let Ur Child Suffer.

    Please Be Considerate To The Babies Who Dont Know Anything.
