No matter how much you prepare for it, becoming a parent can be a shock.

A recent Reddit thread asked people with children to honestly explain whether they'd still have kids if they could do it all over again. The responses cover the entire spectrum of parenting.

1. Some people were very clear that choosing the parenting life was a mistake.

Going back even further, I never would have gotten married. - RonSwansonsOldMan

2. But others were pleasantly surprised with how great their kids turned out.

Yes, I could not have imagined a better kid. - ShirwillJack

3. Some even wished they'd had more.

My wife and I had kids at a young age. We are both in our forties and both of our boys live on their own, have careers and are off the payroll. We have a great relationship with both of them.

If I knew then what I know now (and had the financial security we have now in our forties) I would have had 5 of those guys. - Stiv_b

4. The best parents are the ones who realize no one else wants to hear about their kid as much as they do.

I used to make fun of the crazy baby people at work. Then I got a little girl, and I love her more than everything I’ve ever experienced. But I make sure to not make myself a target for the younger people. I don’t post 100 pictures and don’t talk about her more than a story of what happened over the weekend or something. I realize no one cares about her as much as I and my wife do.
