This question is for people who do not have children of their own. I Do not have children and the possibility of me having them is very unlikely. I see my dolls as my "kids". I was wondering if anyone else does this too? Does it give you something you were lacking not having children? Would you pay as much attention to your dolls if you suddenly had kids? Do your dolls make you feel better or worse about not have kids of your own. I personally don't mind being childless, but sometimes I feel like I wish I had even just one. My dolls make me feel better and worse at the same time. They give me something to "Mother" (I don't like animals so much and adoption is not an option) but it makes me wonder what my children, if I had any, would really be like, look like, ect. I just wondered what other people like me feel about Dolls as Substitute Kids. Do you think it's wrong? I saw a documentary a few years back on people who had those hand made baby dolls that looked just like new borns. I remember thinking, "wow, that lady is crazy" and now I find myself doing almost the same thing. Granted I dont go out into public with my dolls in a stroller and let people think they are alive, but still. How far is too far? Do you think it's healthy or a sign someone's "not all there"?
