    I am shocked at the number of voters who have chosen to be against assisting a stranger in need. What happened to our society!? So sad!

    As a mother of seven, well-adjusted grown children, which includes a set of twins, I am appalled that a first-time parent would have the gall to not only publicly request for help, but then to demand specific foods! Having a child for the first time (or any other time for that matter) can be overwhelming, but if we chose to have children, we should also be willing to take on all the responsibility of being parents. My suggestion is either do not become parents, or if you do - talk to your family, or friends if either of you are having long term issues, such as lack of sleep etc., which can interfere with your functioning as a human being. Our society enables us to become less responsible people and we expect everything to be done for us, and then we pass that same attitude on to our children. As long as we are willing to become enabled, we will never learn anything, including how to become a good parent.

    I would help their kid...by sneaking an abortifacient into their food.

    People don’t want to help because most people are truly selfish people and don’t really care to help others!!

    This is just another example of people who are not yet mature enough to be having children, and it would appear they expect the world around them to support their inability to be a proper parent and support the needs of what they've spawned. I have empathy for single parents, but as a couple, this is something they should be doing on their own, or with the assistance of their family and closest friends. Supporting this kind of behaviour only increases the problems that a child that will likely be raised feral is going to experience. I pity the child that they're bringing into this world, as it is the party that is going to be most affected by the improper actions of its parents. This situation is just plain wrong for so many reasons. Yes, the reaction on SM has been harsh, and could have been tempered, but the issues expressed by those condemning the man-child's actions are legitimate.

    These people are not even parents and are handing in the towel and begging for help, how about you try first like all parents do.

    This is way beyond entitled behaviour it is downright absurd and obnoxious. This fellow is way too immature to be a parent. This couple should put the child up for adoption as soon as it is born. If not adopted they can ask a neighbour or friend for help on an individual basis. He sounds like he wants someone else to raise his kid. Normal people have children all the time and don't rely on other people as a maid service. I hope the mother is more intelligent.

    As a nurse who works with families and babies, bravo to them for asking for help. The transition into parenting is extremely difficult and the first year crucial to baby's brain development. Help thy neighbour seems to be non existant.. I see the repurcussions on families and children that do not have a broad support system. I encourage everyone to reach out and help.. It effects our next generation.

    I get the whole kindness between society and things but the dude who asked for help is being greedy. Id have been ok with it if the dude who asked for help didnt start listing menu items like the other person was a hotel waiter. JUST EAT WHAT THE OTHER PERSON GIVES iF YoU ReAlLy WanT HeLp.

    While agree he maybe could have gone about his request a bit better in some ways, I feel that majority of people are being far too harsh on them. As Pat and Kia said, mental health and postpartum depression are widespread issues facing our society today and yet how do we treat those who actually reach out and ask for help? Like I said some things could have been asked more politely but come on, he put out the request as an optional act of kindness for his neighbours to participate in. I would be more than happy to help a neighbour if I knew what they needed from me. Obviously, they need to show a great deal of appreciation and gratitude, but we should also help our fellow humans not for praise but because it is the right thing to do. I'm saddened to see such hatred and anger from some of these responses.

    It takes a village to raise a family. Our society has lost it's sense of community. If everyone helped each other in this way, we wouldn't need to ask for it and be back lashed for doing so. Actually, we are all entitled to this level of support. Mental health and other post natal related sufferings would be reduced greatly if we all chipped and and helped each other. Besides, not everyone has a family or friends to call on!

    Whomthe hell are these people? There are books out there to help them learn what to expect when the baby arrives. Hey hubby, how about you make up a bunch of meals in advance of the birth to help your wife. Get a grip, you’re going to be a father. Of course you’ll lose sleep, your house may be a little messy at first, but who cares? It will settle down in due time. Very entitled I must say. How old are you? You sound like an idiot.

  • Eena - 3 months ago

    My thoughts exactly Pat!

  • 2 kids in 2 years - 3 months ago

    I have never thought to be scared before i had my kid. If i felt fear its because im doing something i sgouldnt and if you fuckbags ever feel that way maybe you shouldnt have kids. I am a real huge metal head and was abhuge pothead. I cut down on both to raise my boy and girl anf i do 90% of everything (dishes/cookimg/bathing/shoppimg and playing)while mom is just there. I dont care, kkids will have more of a attachment to me than mom and it shows through my son. I get maybe 4 hours of sleep a night and im woken up 3-6 times a night by my son.(spent first 6 months of his kife in the hospital) and i spent all that time with him. We spent a whole fucken year doing shit on our own from a small town to a city with no family around to help...these people should hace their kids taken from them. FUCK THESE FUCKS MAN PISSES ME OFF. I DID ALL THIS ON OUR OWN WITH MY GF AND OUR FIRST BORN AND THIS STUPID RETARD HAS THE IDIOT IC GUTS TO POST THIS SHIT???? I HOPE IT EMBARRASSED HIS WIFE ENOUGH TO KNOW HE ISNT A REAL MAN AND DUMPED HIS LITTLE PUSSY ASS..

  • Allie - 3 months ago

    LMAO PAT.

    No. Entitled people don't deserve to be catered to. Work to things and earn them just like the rest of us.

  • Pat - 3 months ago

    This makes me sad. Of course we should help them, why wouldn't we? All I hear is talk of mental health awareness and here is a couple pre planning for the onslaught of emotional upheaval. and we crucify them for asking for help. Why can't we all just be a little nicer?
