Results: Parenting : Worse than We Thought
Published on 08/24/2015
QUESTIONSGO to COMMENTS Comments
1.Recently a German study was published in the journal Demography, in which it was discovered that the first year of being a parent has a more devastating effect on a person than divorce, unemployment, or the death of a spouse. Have you heard about this?
2.The researchers followed childless couples until they became pregnant and then two years after the birth of their first baby. They found that the impact on their happiness was quite severe - 70% of those studied reported a drop in happiness in the first year or two after having a baby. Do these findings surprise you?
3.Why do you think these people experienced such a drop in happiness?
They had unrealistically high expectations going in.
They were negative people to begin with.
Being a parent really does suck.
A combination of things.
C'mon, they're German. Those people are notoriously negative.
I really don't know.
4.When you first became a parent, did you find it better or worse than expected?
It was better than I expected it to be.
It was worse than I expected it to be.
It was just as I expected it to be.
I didn't have any expectations.
I never really thought about it.
