Топ-топ - топает малыш...

Вот такое исследование:

"Like many people, I've assumed that, as you get older, your children become a source of comfort, well worth all the financial and emotional energy you invested over the years.

Not necessarily. Tanya Koropeckyj-Cox, a sociology professor at the University of Florida, published a study in 2003, which found that older parents and people without children enjoy similar levels of well-being in their later years.

Nor do people with children seem to enjoy any greater happiness in their younger years.

A study of 13,017 adults published last month in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, found that parents experience significantly higher levels of depression than nonparents.

And in a now-famous study published in the journal Science, in 2004, when researchers asked 909 women in Texas to record the events of a single day and rate how much they enjoyed various activities, spending time with their kids didn't even crack the top five, which were: sex, socializing, relaxing, praying or meditating and eating."

И много всего другого разного. Наверное, есть доля истины в этом исследовании.
Только это все точно не про меня. Как можно взвесить любовь?

Милль пардон, сами исследования грешат. Если человека спросить про "занятия", которые ему нравятся, он не будет отвечать про "людей". Как вопросы зададите, так оно и поплывет.

Извини за буквоедство :)

Видимо, среди списка activities было и "spending time with kids". Чем не занятие? Но люди вон, считают, что "покушать" приятнее...
