At the risk of self-congratulation, I am linking a blog post I wrote this morning about the down side of having children.
Personally, I have always felt that Buddhism might be roughly described as the study of both "it's all about you" and "it's not all about you." This setting seems to me to be brought home with a vengeance when it comes to having children and I thought others might want to add their two cents.
And yes, I have three kids.
