All cities are the worst, they're the breeding ground for evil and inhumanity.

It would be better to know the "why" - don't you think.  Most probably has to do with families moving out.  Except Chicago.  That one may be more the result of "friendly fire."

The title of this article was terrible.  I was looking for some reason that kids would be at risk in these cities.  Instead this was about losing the percentage of kids under 14.

Can you add Warner, Oklahoma to this list, please? The only children here that are offered any type of opportunities are the ones that are related to or associated with the criminal scum that runs the town, police department and school. If you or your children do not fall in this category, then you should not even stop in Warner. Nepotism, bullying, corruption and child abuse at it's best. Warner High School and the "warden" Jeremy Jackson will make your child's life hell. Biggest dirtbag to ever sit in the principal's office.

Is this actually an article? Posting some insignificant statistics does not make it an article. When I looked at the title, I was expecting to see reasons why one would not want to live in a certain urban area. Instead I just got statistics in population decline. Populations can fluctuate for so many reasons. This was a terrible read.

We, adult are too busy making money to keep up with the modern fancy  toys age.  We are focus on accumulate things to satisfy our desire instead of spending quality times with our children.  Emotion, excitement are governing our life, we marry for the best, and  package our belongings when the worst is about to come. How dare you blame the youth, throw it  in jail , criticize his attitude when you give him a game box to make his education and so forth.  We need to get back to the basic where family sit around a table to have dinner together….

Maybe because so many people (young males) are getting killed or killing others in these large metro cities. This article is misleading. The headline states worse cities for kids, but they are focused on dwindling population of kids. Big difference.

I don't really think that Detroit belongs in this group. #2-9 are tough to raise kids in because they're big, exciting, successful cities that are designed for people to work in, and for successful 20-30 year old to live in.  They're not really designed for kids to live in.  Detroit is just bad for anybody of any age to live in (except for drug dealers).

Maybe, just maybe, some people are figuring out that large cities are probably the worst places to raise children, and these people are moving away.  Believe it or not, there are a lot of places in this country that are far away from the big cities.  There are many, many small towns and rural areas that are much better places for kids.  If you can learn to live without some of the amenities of the city, simplify your life, and learn to live on less money (these alternative areas usually have a much lower cost of living anyway), your children will benefit.  Cities don't have bars around them.  You really can move away from there if you want to.

What we need more than anything in this country is for the ignorant and impoverished to stop having so many children and continuing the cycle of living on welfare. We need more intelligent tax paying citizens to raise the next generation of productive Americans. We need to put a stop to teen pregnancy and hardcore drug use as well.

just for the record....all you people who say it's the gay community's fault.....just remember that all the children that wind up in orphanages and without families because people are too dumb, have kids too early, abuse their children, do drugs, and cant keep it in their pants.....the gay community ends up raising these children.....and they usually wind up becoming successful, loving, kind, smart, talented individuals! I happen to have a cousin that is gay and she has raised the two smartest most beautiful boys that I have ever met! Also she has opened her home to foster children most of whom she has never met before the system gives them to her!!! One of her sons came from a mother who was a druggie and her family/his father and family didn't want him and he is the sweetest little boy I've ever met!!! they may not necessarily be able to have children without artificial insemination but they take DAMN good care of the children no one else wants!!! without a second thought about it!!!! so don't go and blame our countries falling out on the gay community!!! church wont help, being a better parent and knowing how to keep it in your pants will!!!! every city has a bad section so does every town.....your going to come across scum bags wherever you go so don't sit there and blame people who cant help but be the way they are......it's not a life choice.....they were born that way or ignorant people (men and women) made them that way!!! My cousin is a DAMN GOOD WOMAN so is HER WIFE!!!!! and i'll be damned if anyone ever tries to tell her any different!!!!!!!!!! so kiss **** and grow the f*** up....honestly gays and atheists aren't the problem in this country it's people like YOU the ones who are narrow minded and ignorant that are the problem.....oh and GOD isn't going to fix all your problems.....he made you "free willed" for a reason!!!!! and keep that in mind next time you want to blame gays for everything!!!

Declines could easily be from more abortions performed in those areas along with increased use of contraceptives. Maybe they are also having more gay/lesbian relationships which would cut into the birth rate besides people moving out of the area and new people with kids not moving in. No surprise Detroit is number 1 as many kids have been murdered with drive-by shootings and drug transactions gone wrong with kids being innocent victims of the violence. I also heard many parents are making sure they want no more children as they can't afford it. Maybe we really will wipe ourselves out after all and become a society with more gays/lesbians than heterosexual couples with kids.

On a related note: white people, you really need to start humping.

 

Oh the demographics, they are a-changin'.

 

I demand at least three under 14 year olds from every married couple.  Get busy.
