Having Children Can Make You Happier–Eventually

Leave a comment

This NPR story validates what I’ve thought all along: raising children can bring happiness–eventually.  Maybe you won’t feel so happy changing diapers, doing the laundry, or cleaning the vomit out of your car after a roadtrip; however, when you step back and see the big picture, parents do find happiness in their roles.  And while this particular story doesn’t address it, I can say having consulted with clients in a nursing home, when one reaches the last chapter of life, having children often produces a much happier ending, indeed.
