Don't Want Kids? Learn About the (Hilarious) Side Effects

Debating parenthood? Watch this video first

Touting the new “drug” Not Having Kids, the latest parenting video going viral points out all the perks of a childless life – especially happiness, the alleviation of stress and avoiding “the ultimate crushing of your dreams and aspirations.”

However, the funniest part of the satire is the long list of side effects, which include, but are not limited to “destruction of family lineage, eerily quiet studio apartment, holiday season lonlieness, thoughts of suicide, midlife regret, later life regret, death bed regret” and, of course, “general bitterness, including not throwing baseballs back when they land on your side of the fence.”

Discover Not Having Kids doesn't work for you? No worries. You can always try Not Having a Dog.
