Pregnant women and fathers-to-be, take heed: That “bun” in the oven will ruin your mental health.
In a recent study conducted by Florida State University’s sociology program, results show that parents as a whole “experience lower levels of emotional well-being, less frequent positive emotions and more frequent negative emotions than their childless peers,” according to Dr. Robin Simon of FSU.
As a whole. Not one single group of parents, be it married, single, step-, or even empty nesters report significant greater emotional well-being than adults who never have children.
Practical use? It’s obvious. Stop having kids, no more war.
