Why Is A New Study Claiming Parenthood Is The Worst Thing Ever?

August 19, 2015 1 min read

Yes, parenthood has its challenges. Sleepless nights, temper tantrums and being forced to watch Elmo's World every day, but is it really the worst time of your life? According to a study published in the journal Demography, the first year of a baby's life can be the worst year of a new parent's life. The study was spurred on by the overwhelming fact that German couples decided against having a second child after experiencing parenthood with their first child. The study wanted to know why this was occurring, so they followed young people for a number of years and had them rate their level of happiness and satisfaction each year. Before having children, couples scored fairly average to high in the levels of happiness and life-satisfaction. After baby #1, the couples levels began to dip. Only 30% of couples said they remained just as happy after baby as they were prior to baby. [bctt tweet="Why Is A New Study Claiming Parenthood Is The Worst Thing Ever?"] But the study has some flaws. It's pretty generic, and doesn't explore why the couples are less happy. Certainly most of the people who were asked aren't miserable because of their little bundles of joy specifically, but most likely because of tiredness, financial worries or relationship strain due to all those late night feedings. We want to hear from you! Do you agree or disagree with this study? Source: Women's Health
