Janie Park Soc 1 May 26 2010 Week 9 Reading Response Through this article, it reveals that the gift of parenthood would give one positive emotions like happiness, joy, excitement, contentment, satisfaction, and pride. As our culture promotes that parenthood provides a sense of purpose and meaning to life, this feeds American’s belief that there is no better guarantee of achieving an emotionally fulfilling and healthy life than having children. As this article stresses the importance of parenthood and how children bring happiness and an emotionally healthy life, this differs from reality in contemporary U.S. as studies show more symptoms of depression in parents compared to non-parents the same age. In reality, although children do bring happiness to the lives of parents, the cost of raising the child (emotionally and financially) significantly outweighs the positive benefits of raising a child.
