Wow, NY Mag has posted a story saying, “If You Want to Feel Good About Yourself, Don’t Have Kids.” The term ‘adulting” is about not having kids and focusing on your achievements as an adult. Not having the distractions of raising a kid allows people to excel in their jobs and relationships. But does that create more happiness? What about the distraction of raising a dog?
“Even though the birth of a child is generally considered a positive event, it is still associated with numerous potentially taxing challenges, and these tangible negative aspects of parenthood may offset the more abstract positive characteristics of the event,” that is from the Social, Psychological & Personality Science, a research team at the University of California. All this is said to give a person less self esteem. Look here and see if you agree.
