Ecotrain QOTW : Do you think it a good or bad idea to bring children into this world in these troubled times?

in ecotrain •  3 months ago 

Finally, I get time to write on, what I believe is one of the sensitive tough question put up on Steem BlockChain. This question must have given many a reason to do deep dive and thorough analysis. The Question Of The Week put up by @eco-alex for @ecotrain :

Do you think it a good or bad idea to bring children into this world in these troubled times?

is indeed need a thorough analysis as it's about deciding the future.

While I started writing the first thought that flashes into my mind and also once told by my friend is "No Day is Good or Bad, It is all about our Mentality" Considering this short phrase, I would say we can not decide about the future , looking at the current time we are in which is pretty challenging and troubled, making our future uncertain. But putting a restriction on bringing up the child is not a sensible thing. Just imagine, what if we're too not brought up in this world looking at the hard times our parents had faced. We would not have been into this scientific modern digital world we are enjoying currently.

Few things I would like to highlight here :

  • Disturbing the Family Tree : China was the first country who made great effort to put control on their over growing population. I read somewhere long ago that the family tree had taken a great backing due to the government policy hampering the family-relation history. Children have no one to call uncle or aunt disturbing the entire family definition.

  • Human Extinction : By not bringing up kids just by looking at the troubled times, may lead to human extinction. Humans are the best creature that were made on earth and have special mention on Bible, Geeta or any religious books. We won't make ourself the reason of our own extinction from this planet.

  • God's own Face & Symbol of Love : In India Children are considered to be God's Face. A true epitome of Ignorance and Innocence which can be moulded the way we want. Children are also the symbol of Love. Two body One Soul gives the beautiful gift in the way of Children. For few , it could be a factory but in real children are true Symbol of Love. By looking at those cute smile and chirping voice may take away all kinds of worries.

Having a child brings a sense of responsibility and a reason to live long. Making our life more meaningful and beautiful. The troubled times that are brewing up all around are all man made. It's our deeds which are spoiling and creating lot of issues. Instead of controlling and correcting these troubled times, we are trying to ran away from the future. Make efforts to give our future a brighter days than keeping them on darkness.

We are responsible for depletion of natural resources, why not we make efforts to conserve and make best use to build our future.

Instead of cutting trees, we can make efforts to plant more trees , making our planet's greener than ever.

The greed, the race in which we are in, we need to put a check.

Build our Future this is my own pure perception on the topic. I know many intelligent minds may comes up with their own. But the topic is such that may have ask for all sorts of contribution.

Stay Calm....

Keep Steeming...Steem On !!!

I think that it depends on the parents and how they are as both a couple and individuals. This is a tough one for me because I understand why having children during these times might not be the best idea. However, I can also see why it would be a good thing to have children during these times as well. It really just depends on specific situations in my opinion.

Thanks @artbyclark for giving a nice viewpoint. Indeed it's depends on many factors but just assuming our future to be black we cant stop things to happen. Noone knows future, so why not to live currently and try to make a better tomorrrow

Lovely to read your contribution @steemflow. "It's our deeds which are spoiling and creating lot of issues. Instead of controlling and correcting these troubled times, we are trying to ran away from the future. Make efforts to give our future a brighter days than keeping them on darkness." THIS was such a spot-on remark. Work to heal our world and make it better for our children. Nice post.

I completely agree on what you said:
"The greed, the race in which we are in, we need to put a check."
Of course this is something that many great teachers of past realized: Buddha, Jesus, Diogenes, etc. and they did some great work to step up against it. However, as things turned out, in spite of all their teachings we proceeded further into that direction. Of course even back in their days there was a chance that people would run out of food or water, which they did on occasion, causing them die in masses. However, that was always on a regional scale, not a global one. Who knows, maybe when that happens to us, we are going to suddenly abandon our greedy ways... I'm not sure if that is likely, or even if we do, whether it won't be too late. In any case, thank you for the interesting post and the chance to immerse myself in these thoughts!

I feel people love to listen those preaching but they hesitate to adapt them in their life. ....in hindi we call the "MOH" & "Maya" that make them to keep looking for extra to get satisfaction but in persuit they are disturbing the entire human
