SOC-320 Topic 6 DQ 1

If you have children, think back to the time before you had children. If you do not have children, look forward to the time when you may want to decide to have children or not to have children.

If you have children already, was that a conscious choice or was it just assumed that you would have children? If it was a choice, how did your reasons for wanting children compare with the reasons discussed in Chapter 12 of the Lauer & Lauer text? If it was not a thought-out choice, do some of the reasons discussed in the text help explain why you and your spouse did not “choose” to have the children you have? Explain.

If you do not have children, do you hope to have some at some later time or will you be voluntarily childless? Explain your thinking and compare it to the reasons described in the text in either the “Why People Want to Have Children” section or “The Child-Free Option” section.
