By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

What do you think is the best thing about having children?

Lots of people on this forum have children. I don't have any myself (though my partner has a son) but I thought I would ask you what you think the best thing about having children is.

I think it is the bond you build and the relationship you have when they are adults. It can be very special indeed.

    I'm totally the wrong person to comment as I don't think I have ever wanted children of my own.

    @Khalied you are very sensible. Your child will be much better off playing with other children than sitting, watching cartoons all the time. I feel very sad too, when I see small children with mobile phones, playing games or watching cartoons.

    @mheredge I am tried to do what I learned through my study because I am graduated social work and I believe If my baby stay with good air like worm family and good feeling he will alawys good.if you feel ill you can visit doctor in other side when you feel problem with your personality you will need more time to back like first and hardly to cure like what I said to my wife.your child like dough if you grow good things you will see what you grow and becareful when you deal with a child.finally I would like to say my house like dark without my baby:-)
