Children are a blessing. But it can be exhausting to take care of them. Feeding and clothing them is one thing, but then they get older and you have to ferry them to art class and baseball practice and piano lessons and swim meets. You have to agonize over their test scores and their science projects. You are afraid they won’t be successful adults if you don’t start shaping them to be successful children.
