    1 thought on “The Parenthood Decision”

    1. i kind of want everyone to read this book, solely because it is so incredibly weird. it's written by a family counselor who considered adopting an older child when she was 40, but ultimately decided against it because she felt her work was too demanding & would not leave enough time for a child. the book is packed with questionnaires designed to get the reader thinking about various aspects of parenting that they may not have considered because they are so blinded by the prospect of a chubby [...]

    2. I was very disappointed in this book. First of all, the author, while a licensed therapist who has spent years and years counseling couples on making the parenthood decision, is not a mother. I don't feel convinced that someone who is not a mother can tell me what being a mother will be about. The book was extremely negative and focused on all the hardships of parenting and gave very little time discussing the positive aspects of parenting. While I realize that a lot of people go into parenting [...]

    3. This book is probably one that everyone who is considering parenting should read. It asks the question everyone should start with"Are you fit to be a parent?" There's no exam you can take and pass or fail but this book is the best substitute for it that I've seen. Now, I need to find a book that addresses the question "Do I really want to have a child or will I be happier living child-free?"

    4. Summary-What it's advertised as - A book summarizing whether you are ready and willing to become a parent. What it actually is - A book of horror stories, written by parents who regret ever considering to procreate. My ThoughtsWell, I picked up this book because I feel that I am one of those people who studies and takes the pros and cons of a decision, and weigh the good and bad before I make it. I wanted an honest summary of what to expect, what parents regret, love, hate, and what they would s [...]

    5. You know, there are reasonable people out there who consider the pros and cons of parenthood before trying to conceive -or not. This is not the book for them. I wanted a book that outlined what to expect from parenthood - or at least the first couple years. I expected financial and budget advice, or info on a good way to research the financial impact of a child. I wanted, but would have lived without, some stories about the hardships or pregnancy. I expected some sad stories and regrets, yes. I' [...]

    6. This is an interesting read. My husband and I are struggling with the decision of whether we want to have kids or not, and I thought I'd try to get some perspective by reading a book about the topic. There are a series of exercises and questions (that I didn't really do) but the content of the exercises and questions is really good. Not only do I think it's good for people facing ambivalence about kids, it's good for people wondering how they could improve their relationship with their partner. [...]

    7. Written by a marriage, family, and child psychologist who chose not to have children, this book explores many of the aspects of becoming a parent that you may not have thought of. It wasn't particularly ground-breaking for me, but it did at least reinforce that it's a life-changing decision that's worth putting some thought into.

    8. Addresses concerns about becoming a parent. Sometimes you’re not ready. Sometimes you’re just not parent material. Helped me understand at the time that one is not the lesser for not being a parent.

    9. Fantastic Book! A must read for those thinking about their stand on parenthood. Even very helpful for those who already have children.

    10. I have read many books on deciding whether or not to have children. This book is probably the best overall resource on that topic. What I most liked about it is that it questions people who already know they want children, pushes them to explain why and helps them evaluate their reasons. Some reasons are not appropriate reasons to bring a child into this world. The book also addresses people who are not sure they want kids or really don't want them but feel pressured to do so.
