Fatherhood blog “Fodders for Father” asked its adult Facebook fans to share what they would go back as a child and tell their fathers if they could. They got a bevy of candid responses, which the blog analyzed and summarized and reacted to in a recent post for its readers.
Some said, in a nutshell, they wish they would not have been born in order to be spared some of the trauma they’ve gone through in life. Other responses were equally frank. The top 10 reactions were:
1. DON’T HAVE KIDS
2. DON’T MARRY MOM
3. DON’T WORK SO HARD
4. STOP DRINKING, AND SMOKING AND DOING DRUGS
5. DON’T ABUSE ME
6. DON’T ABANDON ME
7. DON’T DIVORCE ME
8. DON’T BE SO EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE
9. DON’T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF
10. DON’T CHANGE A THING
