The WSJ.com asked me to respond to Bryan Caplan’s piece, “Twin Lessons: Have More Kids. Pay Less Attention to Them.” He has a new book out, Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids. Even the title gets me going!
Now, he does discuss some interesting research about parenting, but takes it too far…
…which I lay out my response piece , “With Kids, Easier Doesn’t Mean It’s Right.”
It’s the WSJ, so as you might imagine, they “steered” me a bit, and requested I not rant about the environmental impacts of promoting the idea “parenting can be easier than you think so have as many kids as you want!”
No problem…lots more to say to counter his ideas. Check it out. Thanks to all who have commented so far, and I encourage others to do so as well at wsj.com. It’s a great chance to inform and educate!
