Ok...I just saw a picture on Facebook of an old high school buddy and his daughter. The kid is UGLY. I mean, turn your head away so as not to stare ugly.

My question is this...

Is it harder for parents to love an ugly child?

Now, before the anger and hate starts, I do realize this is an awful question. And, I also have to say that I have never seen a picture of an ugly boardie kid, so I don't know if anyone will be able to answer with experience...OR want to admit they think their kid is less than attractive...

But I'm going to ask the question anyway...

Certainly, however physical beauty is no match for inner beauty.

I don't understand what is awful about the question, it's just life. But I'm ineligible to vote in this poll because I have no idea. If I ever had a daughter though, I'd hope she wasn't totally gorgeous. :lol:

I dunno...just the thought, I suppose, of a parent not loving their child as much because they're hideous is kind of awful, I think. As TEO points out, beauty comes from within...

now though, I'm wondering if parents can love evil children. I read recently that Dylan Klebold's mother, as she was hearing reports about the shootings at Columbine and hearing that her son was one of the shooters, was praying that he killed himself in the school...did she stop loving him at that point??

Hi Pixie...

First of all ALL BABIES ARE BEAUTIFUL. This has been well documented using the Universal Baby Scale of Beauty & Handsomeness. The scale rates little ones from Drop Dead Gorgeous/Handsome to Hideously Not Beautiful. You just need to see where your bundle of joy belongs on the scale. The bottom line is All Babies Are Beautiful. :bigsmile:

You see your kids as beautiful. They're a part of you. As far as loving evil kids. I have never experienced this but I can't imagine that you stop loving your kids ever. for anything. They can break your heart but you never stop loving them

From my years of teaching I can tell you while parents obviously love their children but are more aware, then they often like to admit, that there child is ugly, mean, strange etc. Ahhh the joy of challenging and awkward parent conferences.

every parent thinks their babies are cute. Even the most ugly of them.

And even if you're child is evil...you will always love them. You just don't like them or want to be around them. But you'll always love them no matter what.

You just love "each one differently".


by differently do you mean "we love the ugly one we keep in the closet and feed powdered milk just as much as the one we let see sunlight and show our friends and family"?
