Should there be a test or course that a person must pass before they can become a parent?

  • Yes and no.

    Checks on criminal records and psychological exams for things such as (Dementia, schizophrenia, etc..) Or anything that can lead to the parent being harmful to the child should be required. But nothing based on personality, intelligence or anything regarding personal behavior, which would be completely biased on unfair to those who are part of the minority in society.

  • Why isn't this a thing?

    One, less child abuse
    Two, Less abortions
    Three, less stupid children in every generation that passes by.
    Four, more obedient children.
    And why are you saying no? Are you retarted or some shit?
    Well it's an opinion, but it still should be a thing.
    Anyways, I do agree there should be a test.

  • Of course, because then we'll have less idiots creating more idiots.

  • Parents should and shouldn't have test before they have kids.

    Parents should have tests before they have kids, because it will show them how responsible and caring they are. It will also show them how much control they have over their minds. But on the other side, parents should not take a test whether to have kids or not, because they can mature over time. They will learn the responsibility how to take care of a child that is so precious. People who don't care for their child's' at all, are up to no good, and they don't know what they are doing. This is all I have to say.

  • Of course there should be a test

    There are too many idiots in the world because they were raised by idiots. Testing people who want to have children will help ensure that they raise good quality human beings, while the unfit ones die off. The future generations will only get better and better if only the physically and mentally elite humans are allowed to raise children.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes!

    There are some parents who don`t even know the difference between
    healthy and not healthy foods, they have no clue on cleanliness and as for routine....WHATS THAT?
    I have seen it myself on numerous occasions, and yes i have been a single parent on benefits but my child never went without a proper meal, even if that meant i had to go without other things

  • People should have to pass a course to become a parent.

    I think that people should have to take a course to test there mental and physical stability to have children. The mother should have to check to see if her body could even take it to have children. We wouldn't want the mom to die giving birth. There should also be a course to check the parents background to see if they are safe enough to be called parents.

  • Of course, because then we'll have less idiots creating more idiots.

  • Yes of course!

    We are required to take so many tests to be able to do things such as driving and hunting, even adoption! A child needs to be brought up into a stable home/living environment. I want to hear a good reason as to why we shouldn't have a test allowing people to be parents.

  • This won't help.

    Here are the problems with the parent test.

    1.) Will make it harder and more expensive for the good parents who are already struggling to get pregnant and have to spend money on things like invetro.
    2.) There is no way to account for PND, the change people have when they have a child, and where exactly do you cut people off.
    3.) There are already organizations to try and help kids in these scenarios, but their funding keeps getting cut. Don't add another program that will not only take money from these programs but cause even more problems.
    4.) How are you going to facilitate this. Every person who has a child and doesn't pass the test has to give it up? To the system, that already is getting more and more corrupt because we keep cutting the spending? That still isn't a good option. Or are you going to "fix" everyone until they apply. Hello to increase of STDs. Or are you going to force abortions? That won't go over well at all in this country.
    5.) Who is the judge. How do you decide who is fit and who is not. This program will go for a bit and then have its funding cut like everything else and become corrupted.

    A test is a very bad idea.

  • Anyone with so much as a fourth of a brain can see why this would be wrong.

    What about those who become pregnant and fail the test? Will they be forced to have abortions? The idiot over there who wrote an entire wall of text and still didn't manage to make a point appears to have forgotten that we already have programs to help abused or neglected children; they just aren't funded or managed effectively.

    In addition, a test like that could well be turned into a form of eugenics, with criteria that would discriminate against the disabled or other societal minorities.

    Finally, you're an idiot if you think people don't get pregnant by accident anymore just because we have birth control. Condoms can break during sex, birth control pills can fail, and some people just don't have access to the informative and accurate sex education needed to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

    In short, it wouldn't be financially, ethically, or reasonably feasible to force people to take a test before they have children.

  • No no no

    You can not tackle the problem of mistreated children by restricting who can and can not have kids. There's a whole cycle out there fueled by war and poverty. Tackle the cycle as a whole.

    Besides, who gets to make this test? Who gets to decide who's fit to procreate? How do we know the t

  • No, it would never work.

    Of course it would be great if there was some basic smarts and a few people skills before someone became a parent. But unless we are in a police state, that will never work. Besides, there is just no way on earth to know what it will feel like until you take your own child home.

  • This is outrageous!!! Cntd.

    After listening to our arguments about parents NOT having to take a test to have children, I hope that you have left the dark side, and have finally come to your senses in knowing that if we let the government decide who can and who can't have a child, we are abiding by the laws of the horrible... NAZI's!!! Stick that in your juice box and suck it!

  • This is outrageous!

    All people around the world have never had to take this test, so why now? Is the government trying to take away all our rights? Are they trying to show the people what model of government they believe in? From now on, let's just call them NAZI's.
    What if they DO get pregnant by ACCIDENT, then what? Do they have to "return" the baby? Would they have to "put it down," because by the way this test idea is going, that sounds just about right. Stick that in your juice box and suck it.
