You want to prove you can be a parent
People constantly tell you you’re irresponsible—that you shouldn’t have a dog or even a plant—so you decide you’ll show them by having a child. A child should never be a pawn in any sort of scheme. You should never have a child at someone. If the only thing motivating you to take good care of a child is that other people are watching and judging, what happens when they stop watching? You’ll neglect your child. The reward of being watched will be gone so you won’t see the point.
