QUESTIONS FOR MINDFUL CONSIDERATION
Author Susan Jeffers Ph.D. offers Questions for Mindful Consideration. She says that parenthood can be the right choice if you can truly say "Yes" to the following statements:
Even though my life is good right now, I am ready to trade it in for a different one.
I have experienced many of the things I have always wanted to experience, such as education, career goals, and travel.
I realize that having a child will mean putting certain aspects of my relationship and other areas of my life on the back burner until my child grows up.
I understand that the process of parenting can be difficult.
