After 10 years, you discover that the wonderful child you've raised is not yours (hospital mixup). Do you keep the child, or do you go looking for your "right" child?

Want to see if there's a difference in response between males vs. females respond...and parents vs. non-parents.

  1. I don't have any kids yet but I'd keep the child, because I've already molded him/her into the menace that I wanted and I wouldn't be able to get back all that money that I spent on piano lessons and badminton [friendly]. I'd look for other kid just to make sure that he/shes not smarter than the one I have now.

  2. I don't have kids.
    I would want to keep the kid I already have but hope the other parents would allow visits and not move very far away.

  5. I suggest that inorder come to a compromise that we get our kids valuated. And the parent with the most valuable kid gets to make all the decisions.

  6. that's okay. Since I care about both kids I wouldn't want one of them growing up with an inferiority complex. Valuated. Unbelievable. I hope your world-domination plot fails miserably.

  8. I'm not a parent and i dread the little critters, however i'd keep my child i have been raising for the past 10 years but i'd go searching for my blood child. Hospital/midwife would be sued for the mix up.

  9. What a terrible scenario! I would keep my child (the one I had raised) and I would seek out my birth child! I would ensure as much as possible that (s)he was being raised by nice parents.

    Simplenigma, what an interesting question!

  10. not a parent and will try to avoid being one even at gunpoint.

    That said, i would probably keep the current one, as owen said, it's been trained for my plans for world domination. Would be a waste to throw away 10 years of indoctrination.
