In a WhatsApp group, a friend of mine with two teenage kids posted a link to this article with the comment that she agreed that kids should not be the most important things in one’s life.
While trying to open the link I found a response to the article which I promptly posted on the group page.
And finally, I just could not resist the temptation and added this too on the WhatsApp page, as a sign off.
My own take on the subject: In the early years, say till our kid finished college, he was the most important thing in our lives. Subsequently, both of us suffered the empty nest syndrome for some time before both of us became the most important thing to each other. I think that it all depends on the circumstances. I know couples and single parents with grown up quadriplegic and paraplegic children, for whom, the kid is the most important thing in their lives.

I love the video. As you know, Andy and I have nurtured ours well. It’s been over 53 years now, plus the couple of years we were engaged, and we hope to get a few more in before we shuffle off.

We are old and can understand the message in the video. The two articles on the pros and cons however are addressed to the much younger.
