A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to share his interesting family story to explain why he has decided not to have children of his own.
According to the entrepreneur with handle @madebycharles, his parents gave birth to 9 children, 7 of whom are alive, and the youngest is 2-years old.
He said his immediate younger sister has a 5-year-old child which means that his nephew is older than his youngest sibling.
Charles disclosed that his complicated family tree has made him resolve not to have kids as he is responsible for all of them.
“Taking care of my people (parents & siblings) is never up for discussion with anybody, anytime whatsoever.
With that being said, sometimes I wish I can lay my parents down and flog them.
HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU HAVING 9 (7 alive) kids???
For context, my youngest sibling is 2
It infuriates me so much when I think about it sometimes. It has also boldened my resolve to never have kids. Cos why?
So abuse aside, some parents really make taking care of them at old age difficult by choices like this.
And oh the branch has extended.
My kid sis, the one immediately after me, whom I am just a year older than was also have a 5yr old.
See when I say I don’t want kids and people try to convince me and talk to me, I am very close to losing my temper.”
