Response Women & Stress Article

  • I am doing my Thesis Research on Women & Life Stresses. I was interested when viewing a CBC News segment, stating that 28% of women are opting not to have children do to stress of everyday life. They feel that in order to be successful they are better off without children. The sad part of this is that statistically THEY ARE doing better.

    Work pressures need to change and more support should be given. Please join the Facebook group called "Coping with Life" to add additional comments on this topic and to view the News clip and article. I would be very interested in getting feedback with your opinions on the issue.

  • When you say they are doing better, how so? I am just curious how that is defined. I dont doubt that children add stress to life, work, marriage and finances. But I do wonder in what way these women are better off.

  • I am curious too, what determines "better" is it their finances, health, wellness. I know that my life is very stressful and my children play a part in that. But I am sure looking back I would not change anything now.

  • I'm curious as well... Yes, my children do ratchet up the stress levels. But would I be better off if I didn't have them in my life? Personally, the joy is worth the stress for me. At the end of my life, I don't think I'll wish I'd spent more time at the office.
