Pets Outnumber Children 4 to 1 in America

n a new book on demographics set to be published next week, Jonathan V. Last writes that pets now outnumber children 4 to 1 in America. The book is titled What to Expect When No One’s Expecting.

“In 1994 Americans spent $1.7 billion on pets; by 2008 that number had risen to $4.3 billion. By 2010, even in the face of a massive recession, it had climbed over $4.8 billion. The evidence suggests that pets are increasingly treated like actual family members: In 1998, the average dog-owning American household spent $383 on medical care for their dogs; by 2006, that figure had risen to $672.” ...

Don't need some forced 1 child policy here in the U.S.

Many people in both classes, the believers and the unbelievers, voluntarily limit children to 1 or 2.333 or merely none. And for the believers, it's all in the name of God of course.

6 and counting. No picnic. Very rewarding. Very tiring. Wonderful friends. No boats. Will be wonderful to have in the family business until they take off to start their own families. Then who knows what blessings there will be and how many lovers of God there will be. We just pray, train & love. No cakewalk though.

interesting to go back to Genesis and look at the curse.

Adam -- the land would be difficult
Eve- childbirth would be difficult

now 47 million on food stamps, and we've rejected the fruit of our own labor. but we have chihuahuas.

if Eve has abandoned her duty, so has Adam.

Well, after dealing with our local Humane Society, taking a crash course on dog training, plus hiring a professional trainer for 6 weeks, and spending close to a thousand dollars on a dog within 2 weeks, all I can say is raising children was much easier!!! So, for the young men and women who might be reading this, please get married, have a baby and get a goldfish for a pet...

Yes! Its because women have walked away from their duty to God, and chosen to wear trousers and imitate men.

Thus marriage and family become a second rate lifestyle rejected to follow mammon.

Of course, it's not that raising kids is a picnic, but still, God's Word says children are a blessing (see Psalms 127 and 128). To equate or value animals above children is not Biblical.
Amen!

But pleasure seekers don't see it that way.

land, children, animals, plants. we need life! we prefer pesticides, and synthetics, and then buy a chihuahua to make up for it. sunshine, fresh air and water, the basics of life.

Ah, but it will only take six months before she starts acting responsibly, some children don't behave themselves even when their 18.

We just got a 5 month-old puppy and believe me, she's just as much work as raising children.

Well, let's see a purebred pet can add to a family's social status, children don't, especially get into trouble with the law. Many mongrels make good watch dogs, and protect a family's property, kids are in house destroyers.

Hmm, apparently
The Disciplining of Children
is something that goes on for years, it takes the patience of a saint, i.e., Christian to do that right. Also a good home, needs both parents, something lacking in modern America, Husbands and Wives As Parents is what is called for. One person can raise a dog, cat, or even better a goldfish.

I mentioned something about farmers in another message, and there is a large decline in farms in the U.S., and children can sometimes be an asset on those too besides cats and a good border collie. None of these are all that great for apartment living.
