6 Nigerians Tell Us Why They Absolutely Hate Being Around Kids

August 31, 2020

1. Eniola, 22

Children ask the most irritating questions, and they don’t mind their damn business. They’re always poking their noses in things that don’t concern them. For example, I have a little cousin who’s always looking into my phone, even when I’m not there. I wonder what will happen if one day, I leave my porn tab open. She’ll just be scarred forever.

2. Teslim, 27

Look at it carefully. Kids are never associated with organization. All they do is take down and destroy. And then they get away with a lot of shit. I’m a very organized person, so when I have someone’s kids over and they just come and start jumping on my bed it’s extremely maddening for me. And no matter how many times I say, “Hey, get off my bed”, they’ll be back on it in the next few seconds. Sometimes I wish I could fight children.

3. Glory, 21

I hate to say this, but children are dumb, they’re annoying, and they have “coconut head”

4. Ayo, 19

If there’s one word I’ll use to describe kids, it’s “annoying”, and there’s a couple of reasons for that. First of all, they make too much noise. Way too much noise. And I hate noise. And it doesn’t make it better that taking care of them is such a struggle, like an uphill task.

5. Bayo, 25

Maybe I don’t hate them so much anymore, because I found out that some uncle I had used to hate me as a kid and that didn’t just seem fair. But I used to hate them because they just feel entitled to all forms of pampering.
Even from people they do not know or are not related to.

Ii’s just like “Who are you, and why do you feel like you deserve this”?

6. Aisha, 23

I don’t just hate kids, I despise them. But I feel like God might just hear me and refuse to give me kids.

It doesn’t just sit well with my spirit that I have to put my entire life on hold because of one child. I keep asking myself questions like “Why do I have to think of another person my entire life?” You literally toil over them your whole life and at the end, they just become their own person? I might sound selfish, but that’s just not okay.

Then you’ll now have to pack shit and vomit when they’re toddlers. I can’t pack someone else’s shit or vomit. I just don’t see myself doing it.
