Being a parent is a lifetime event and there are few quarantees. Nobody can foretell the future. We can only do our best and try to be optimistic about the outcome. At the endof the day whether by destiny,fortune,or accident the question remains; why have babies? Perhaps ultimately we do so because they will initiate a brighter outlook for generations to come.

Written for Parents with Kids by a Grandparent with kids - An argument for raising children.


Conventional parents through necessity are multi skilled and able to multi-task. Studying parents have so many roles; the good spouse and parent, the esteemed domestic engineer, the excelling scholar and the chief cook and bottle washer. As for ones sex life, you may as well kiss that goodbye! In truth, you demand an accomodating partner,one who appreciates your hours, mood swings, weariness, job related chit chat, complains and whines, and needless to say your exhaustion and lack of doing anything in the bedroom (or anything else) except sleeping - for quite a while! A student partner really needs a partner who acknowledges that occasionally, dinner is not just behind schedule, it is still in the freezer, at the supermarker, burnt to a cinder, soaking in the sink, or still mooing and yes, guess what everyone, it is fast food take-away again. In reality one transforms into a master speed chef of microwave cuisine. Essentially what every woman needs is a reliable knight in self-shining armour with the patience of a saint plus a sensitive new age approach to everything - a bit of a fool's paradise, so dream on. Alas the demands often take their toll. From experience and memory, virtually everyone in my student nurse group finished up divorced. I witness history repeating itself time and time again as students come through my centre, juggling study and their kids devoid of a partner for support.

Reader Reviews for "Why Have Babies?"

Reviewed by D. Kenneth Ross 1/25/2012
Helen, I am so glad you posted your book. As a man who married a lady ten years older than himself, in 1955, with four children already and poor, and then had three more of our own, the odds were somewhat against as well. My wife Angie passed in September of 2010. Neither of us had any of the slightest regrets. Nor did any of the seven children who have all become successful in a variety of fields and with mates who are varied in background and race, but all with a strong belief in God and the value of hard work and family. You are obviously of the same ilk. Congratulations and Bless you, you are an inspiration as was my beautiful wife. D. Kenneth Ross

I love this because it is so real. It's like sitting and talking to a friend who understands your struggles. It is somewhat related to the book I have written which is about raising boys without fathers.
