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?

  • I would probably hesitate at first, because this is your own child. o.o. Taking the time to raise them for so long, then knowing that you have to kill them? But of course, this is one of those, "in the moment" situations (which will never happen LOL). So, can't really say what I would do if I were put in that situation. I'd probably just want to die with them since it was my purpose of protecting them and making sure I'm alive to protect them. I'm thinking about this too much, oops. lol

  • @AsariTears said: I agree with this. There's no way I could do it while they were still alive. I would be an emotional wreck cradling them while they passed. And I'm not sure if I could be the one to pull the trigger once they had died. If my husband or brother were around I'd probably ask them to do it. But if I was by myself or with strangers, then I would probably have to be the one to do it, before turning the gun on myself that is. I couldn't/wouldn't want to live after that.

    Originally thought it was an interesting question. After reading through the thread, it's actually pretty messed up if you really think about the reality of it.



    Yeah, me and my hubby have an understanding that if we were both still around, he would have to do it. But I don't think I could or would kill myself. It would be a disgrace to their memory (from my point of view). If me and my husband were both gone, and our extended family as well, who would remember our daughter? The people who watched her die?
    But I do think I would turn into the world's hardest ice queen lol. I'm talking, making Lilly (played from sided with Kenny POV) look like a kitten :D

    You can't kill what is already dead.... only... de-activate it.

    That's a good point about the memories, but if it's a full-blown Apocalypse. Then your memories will become so tainted by the violence and corruption of others that holding onto past memories will be the only good memories you have left. That one bright memory in a blackened world. And in the end (as you suggested) it will only drive you to become a more bitter and vitrol-filled person. Therefore becoming corrupted yourself.

    I'd rather die pure.

    But I suppose I'd write down something in a book or paint it on a wall "here lies a once loving family" and share some of the memories there before passing.

  • Id let the child bite me so we could be undead together!:D

  • I have two daughters. If both of my kids (4,2) were infected it would finish me. I'd gently as I could put them down then myself.

  • Stay with my child until he turns, then I will kill him or get some else to do it, but it will never happen. If an zombie invasion does somehow start and my child turns into a zombie, I will be ruined and finished. In the game I really wish clementine won't die and turn into one of those things or I wont play the game anymore. Clem is the best character and I hope she survives.

  • I would raise it just like that lady in the TV series made those 2 zombies her slave :P

  • I would Take the child out of its misery. I think that would be the best bet. If he turns he might bite others so they turn too.

  • Raise a Zombie Child!

    "Hey, why is Joseph eating so much?"

    "We're all hungry, aren't we?"

    "OW! He bit me!"

    "He's REALLY hungry."

    Okay, I can't be very serious about this since I don't have a child of my own, but if I really did, I would put him out of his misery. It would probably drain all of my life out of me too.
