No, mine are ugly as hell!
LOL...just kidding, I really think that most people do think their children are beautiful.
I always remember my mother once telling me that when my son was born and I sent my family pictures that they were cracking up because my baby was so tiny, shriveled up, lopsided head and here I was looking down on him like he was the most beautiful creature ever, which to me he was. Now that I look at that picture I see their point but love totally blinds us.

I THINK THEY DO. HOW COULD YOU NOT THINK YOUR CHILDREN ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURES ON EARTH. IT COMES FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CHILD.

when you're in love with your kids, they are the most beautiful creatures. It has nothing to do with physical beauty, but the essence of who they are! Children are awesome!

I think all parents see their children as beautiful. All children are. Everyone's idea of beautiful is different, and it's easy to look at a child and find some form of beauty.

It wasn't until I had children that I started to see ALL children (even older ones) as somebody's "precious little-one". They are all beautiful and DAMN funny, too!

I always tell my girls the only reason we had kids was for pure entertainment...

Yes. Not only is beauty in the eye of the beholder, but this is also a survival technique that helps us to fall in love with our children and allow the human race to continue.

Absolutely, I've see some children who are not "classically attractive" and their parents think they're the cutest in the world. Thank God for this loyal devotion.

Well in most cases children look just like their parents. So if they think their children are ugly they must have pretty low self esteem.

I would hope so, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I wondered about that too and when I had my first child and thought she was beautiful I wondered if it was just because she was mine, or if I would think that even if she wasn't. When I had my second child, she was not so pretty when she was first born, so I had my answer. The redness went away by the time she was two weeks old and she is beautiful now. She also hates when I tell this story, but since she is not on SparkPeople, she'll never know.

Not all children are adorable. It may be unkind, but it is true. I've seen some not so cute kids. I think that some parents are blind to flaws in their children. Some are well aware of the flaws. Just because a child isn't "beautiful" and the parent acknowledges it does not make them a bad parent. It isn't mean. It also doesn't change the way that parent feels towards their child. Children's actions are more endearing than looks. The way they do something or say something can make even an unattractive kid cute or even make an adorable kid seem bratty.

I think that my son is the cutest baby ever, as I'm sure a lot of parents feel about their kids. Its more about love than anything else though.

ALL CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL! REMEMBER, BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN DEEP. MY CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. GOD BLESS THEM.

I sure hope so--my sister in law did and her son was born with a hair lip before they had the great surgeries they have now

I feel that all children are beautiful "in their own way". What one person may see as beautiful another may see differently. I personally try to see the beauty in everyone, especially my children!!

My second son was born with aural atresia of his right ear. No ear canal and no ear lobe. i had to force myself to look at it, but after a day i realized it wasn't hideous, it was just different. He was a pretty baby and and he is an handsome man today.

We should, but unfortunately there are some parents who don't. I work in a school where I see that all the time.

Yes. The only ones who don't are those who were raped or had the child against their wishes.

I think as parents we see the best of ourselves and a new beginning in our children.

I think something is wrorg with the parent that doesn't think their child is beautiful!

I am not sure if they do but all I could think of was that old Sinefeld episode where everyone but the parents thought the baby was ugly.

I hope so, too. "Beautiful" has many definitions.

In just looks probably not. My Mom tells me a story about her sister (my aunt) when she had a boy, she told my mom "you can go see him he is on the bed, but he is an ugly baby"! My mom said he wasn't the cutest baby too, that he was really skinny and had a nose like his dads ( I imagine it wasn't a nice nose) lol. Then he became the cutest little kid. We all loved George and may he rest in peace as he passed away at afairly young age last year.

Yes... of course all parents should love their children unconditionally for who they are. But, what I'm asking is if all parents think their children are physically beautiful.

I know mine are...I hope for the sake of most children, that their parents think they are beautiful and love them for who they are!

This post is meant for my own information, and not to offend anyone. So, please, nobody get all defensive. But.. I was just wondering... does every parent think their children are beautiful??
