Today we are so busy we are no longer able to realize that the best years of our lives are passing us by every day. Often we ignore our mortality to the point that the first time we realize we are getting old is when we feel the first pangs of menopause.
Unfortunately for many of us we no longer consider having children. Read on to see why I believe that having children is still a good life choice.
Children Help us Focus Our Attentions
In China, they call an only child a "Little Emperor" because his parents and grandparents spoiled him. I'm not suggesting things go that far, but if you have kids, they will help you focus on the important things like making sure that your children are thriving.
Instead of spending on superfluous things we remember that we have to put aside resources to make sure our children are well provided.
Our Children Are Our Pride and Joy
When our children achieve things, we know that we are responsible for their growth and development. Hence their success if our success. It is no wonder that some parents overdo it and end up being helicopter parents. They are obsessed with having something to brag about.
They Will Care For Us in Our Old Age
Whether it is through Social Security or via their direct support, our children will help us survive when we are no longer able to work. Even in our modern world, a child cannot resist a parent when he asks for something from those that they raised.
Old Age Filled with Life
I don’t want to be a Debbie downer, but as we grow old, our friends and family will die. If you are fortunate to live long, you might end up watching all your loved one's transition to the great beyond if you don’t have children.
But if you have children, it won't be that way. Instead, you will see them have children of their own, and they will make the practical choice of letting you care for their children instead of sending them to daycare. In other words, your old age will be filled with life instead of death.
And since you made the choice to have children, you should get insurance to make sure they are protected should you encounter some misfortune.
