All Joy and No Fun: Why parents hate parenting.

“Jennifer Senior’s article ‘All Joy and No Fun: Why Parents Hate Parenting’ attempts to rip off the veil and expose modern parenting for what it really is: endless drudgery accompanied by moments of transcendent joy. The article cites multiple studies demonstrating that people are fundamentally less happy after they have children. (Unless they’re Danish. Apparently being Scandinavian gets you a pass.) Parenting, Senior concludes, is stressful, agonizing work that can only be appreciated in retrospect.”
