This question goes out to those who have children and those who don't. If your child was to become a flesh eater. How would you handle the situation?

  • Yeah, this question is ridiculous. Very few people would be able to shoot a loved one, and anyone who can look at the decision rationally and say the intelligent answer is missing the entire point. I'd always pick the decision to let them reanimate and wander as a zombie. At least then I could delude myself that one day they'd get better.

  • @8Bit_System said: I would think it would be to late to act when the symptoms are already in effect. An amputation would need to be done before the infection has spread inside the body.

    That would be like your kid was bitten by a snake, then you wait a while until the symptoms start showing and then you act and bind off the bitten extremity. The poison is all over the body by that time.

    I think you might be a bit confused on what I said(which I didn't explain too well so sorry). I would amputate a child if they got bitten immediately yes, the second paragraph is what I would do if it was too late/bitten in a vital area like the chest where you can't really perform an amputation. I didn't really differentiate the 2 so sorry :p

  • If the parent is alive, I'd let him/her shoot the kid. If that parent loves the kid, they'd kill him/her before the transformation.

  • I'd let my child die then when he/she came back, I'd put "it" (the flesh-eater/killer) down.

    To deadman....not every parent could shoot their own child....it has nothing to do with love but emotions. If you expect to survive in a situation like a ZA, you better grasp that concept.

  • @FarmerJoe said: I understand that, but personally every time I'd see that person I would always think "you're the man/woman who killed my child, you're the person who did what I wasn't strong enough to do". If they were a friend I suspect that it would eventually sour the relationship.

    I would feel it was my last duty and a final act of compassion, as their father, to end my child's suffering rather than let someone else,who has no love for them, do it.I would hate the fact that they dealt with the situation as if they were just dispatching another zombie.I think I'd also find it a lot easier if the child had actually turned into a walker, because that monstrous thing would no longer be the child I loved.

    i wouldn't think that. I would rather have the last memory of doing something with my son being a somewhat happy one, not me shooting him in the head replaying over and over. I would rather say my goodbyes, then leave so someone else could do it.

  • I will have someone else do it. I know I will leave him and walk away.
    I don't want to witness my own child chasing after me when I'm on a train.
    I know i will beg someone to take him out though.

  • I must be a cold hearted bastard (which... I am... but still)

    I can't fathom letting a "loved one" become an animate rotting eating machine..... that seems so insanely cruel I can't even get my mind around it.

  • I am the mother of three grown children. If one of them were bitten, and it were somewhere, say, in the shoulder, that could not be amputated, then I would sit with them and hold them and talk with them until they died. Then I would would put a bullet in their brain before they could come back, because I know they would not want to come back as something that would harm what humans were remaining. If any of my other children or my spouse were still alive, I would try to go on. If not, I would kill myself. Now excuse me while I go call them all, cause just typing this makes me want to puke.
